I don't normally find the time to write reviews, but on this occasion I feel that I need to make the time. This was my first trip to the west coast of Scotland and I didn't know what to expect. We were blessed with most extraordinarily good weather for the beginning of October and took advantage of it. On arriving...

Billie gave us a lovely welcome and Karen’s breakfasts were amazing; the passion they both so obviously...

We found Grove House easily, about 5 miles from Oban town centre. The welcome received on arrival from the young lady on duty, Billie was warm and friendly. A welcome of hot fragranced face towels, a small carafe of white wine and home made fudge went down very well indeed. The place was tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished including a...

We booked Grove House for our trip to Oban and we were so pleasantly surprised. From the outside, the place looks very unassuming but once inside it is tastefully decorated, with cosy rugs and beautiful statues. We were warmly welcomed with a piece of homemade fudge, a glass of sweet white wine and a Tunnocks' teacake. Our room was spotless...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grove House and had a very warm welcome. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was lovely too. Nice location only 10 minutes' drive from Oban (Dunstaffnage Castle is worth a look, as is the Three Isles boat tour from Oban). Would certainly stay here again.
