Stayed one night before ferry to Mull. Lovely immaculate room with lots of little extras which made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing. Breakfast was great with lots of choice and a helpful lovely host. Will be back and would recommend.

Four day break here in Oban. Been lots of times for work. Never stayed here. But if I'd known of this place would certainly have used it before. If I'm back will use it again. Welcome reception, great room, comfy bed, good location. All you need.

Stayed in Oban, night before catching ferry to Barra. We enjoyed our stay in Kathmore, a lovely spot. We were still in lockdown, so all precations were taken, so we felt very safe. Lovely breakfast. I would recommend.

Kathmore has been our overnight B&B for a number of years. The fact that we regularly use it speaks volumes, as there are many other Oban hotels and B&Bs. Key points: close to town centre and, importantly, to the ferry terminals; clean; good off-street parking; good food.
