I have stayed in Oban many times and this B&B is right up there. Thomas is an excellent host. My room was spotless, had all mod cons with a comfortable bed & good shower. Breakfast options were excellent, including home made bread/ granola etc. Less than a 10 minute walk into town centre. Great value, I'd recommend and will stay...

This is an excellent B&B. Wonderful host, amazing breakfast, beautiful views, really comfortable bed, huge attention to detail. This is the best B&B I have stayed in. I would highly recommend it as a place to stay.

The location was great - within walking distance of Oban Distillery. Keep in mind that it is located up a hill, though, so it could be harder to walk for people with mobility issues. The hotel and the room were clean and comfortable, and the service was excellent.

We were warmly welcomed, the room was lovely. Stay here! We were staying one night on our way to Coll so catching the Ferry at 7am. This meant we would miss breakfast - which looked excellent - so our host suggested we help ourselves to the homemade muesli, fruit, homemade granola and he provided us fresh milk to put in...

Thomas, the proprietor, was welcoming and professional throughout out stay. The whole house was very warm and comfortable as well. All through the house you'll find artwork by his wife and some ranging from the sublime to the quite bold and striking. Our room was a good size and well equipped and the bed firm and comfortable. There was the...

Only stayed for one night, wish we could have stayed for longer. Really nicely refurbished room, excellent breakfast and great host. If we end up back in Oban we'd definitely stay here again. Highly recommend this fantastic B and B.

Really lovely stay in a charming villa. Thomas very welcoming. Rooms spotlessly clean and thoughtfully stocked with everything you would expect and more. Breakfast absolutely fantastic. Homemade granola , bread, yogurt as well as the cooked options. Best I've experienced!

We had a very enjoyable 3 nights here. Thomas, our host, was very attentive and helpful and made a lovely breakfast! The room was recently renovated to a high standard and offered a peaceful, comfortable and quiet stay. The B&B was up the hill from the town centre by Mccaig's tower and was an easy walk to all the great...

The hosts are very friendly & helpful. There is a great range of choices for breakfast much of it home-made. The B&B is a wonderful, tranquil place to stay with stylish and personal décor. The room and bed were very comfortable and with all the facilities you expect.

Failte B&B was lovely! Rooms were clean and quiet, and the breakfast was amazing! Good location, easy walking distance down to Oban Distillery. Parking on the street is a bit interesting but manageable.

Thank you Courtney for your lovely review. We are glad that you had a comfortable stay with us and enjoyed our delicious breakfast. We do have two parking spaces in the driveway and one usually in front of the house on the street. The street is quite narrow but parking is manageable.
