Booked 2 twin rooms for one night before starting a trip to Western Scotland. Oban was a prime choice as a Tescos around the corner allowed a food and fuel fill before heading to our cottage for the week in Ardamurchan. Arrived to a friendly and warm welcome. The proprietors were more than welcome to pack us a lunch for...

This guesthouse is older but very clean and comfortable. Martin greeted us upon our arrival and he is a warm and very friendly host. He was very helpful in answering our questions and also made some excellent suggestions for attractions we were not aware of. The breakfast was wonderful - hot cooked meal as well as fruit, yogurt and danishes....

A really good place to stay, clean, comfortable and friendly. The owner is a very friendly lady and goods out of her way to make your stay a pleasure. Very reasonably priced and highly recommended. Open all year round.

I stayed in The Glenview for 1 night on New Years Eve 2016. I booked a twin room for £65.00 BB which was about £100.00 less than everywhere else that was available in Oban at this time of year. I was meant to be staying with my friend but she cancelled last minute. I checked in and was shown to...

We stayed 1 night - mattress was lumpy and the bed wetting sheet did not help with comfort. The bedsheets were also slightly stained. We both woke with sore stiff backs after a very broken sleep. The room was cramped and the bathroom had an unsealable sliding door so no privacy.. There was mould on ceiling above the shower.. The...

Not at all attractive and the room was a little small, but clean and comfortable. Free parking at the rear is welcomed. WiFi in the room is dodgy, but better in the Guest Lounge, so I was able to communicate with the outside world after all. Hosts are a lovely older couple, he being a bit of a character. Bit...

The owner is kindness itself, and the breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. The room was comfortable and the tea tray was very welcome after a soggy drive from Skye and bringing our bags in. Nice distance to town, convenient parking. We would stay again.

I am surprised about some of the negtive reviews. What a find at this price bracket. Clean, welcoming and great location 10 mins walk into town, and near Tesco. The owner is a great Scottish landlady. The breakfast was to die for. She even cooked me breakfast at 7am on Sunday so I could go off early. 5 Star Guest...
