The room we were in had a bay window looking towards the sea front. There was plenty of space in the room, the bed comfortable and the en-suite, although not huge, had everything that was needed. It even had shelves in it to put your toiletries on which I wish other b&b's would provide. Breakfast was excellent with a good... More

Warm welcome, comfortable clean double room with view of the bay and shower room with ample hot water and generous towels. Breakfast was Terrific - from cereals, fruit and home made yogurt to a choice of ample cooked breakfasts all served in the friendly breakfast room. Excellent value and a pleasure to stay there.

Failte is a pleasant B&B, hospitality was excellent as was the breakfast. Great information on restaurants. The B&B is located quite a steep climb up a hill from the town centre - which is nice for walking off dinner but may be problematic for some. Our room, though well appointed, was very small and trying to live out of our... More

Thank you for your lovely review. The room is small but as you said it was good value for money. We are planing to exchange the cupboard for a suitable suitcase rack and alternate packing space in the near future. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and our excellent breakfast. More

We felt very comfortable and Thomas made our stay to something special. We got the best room and loved the breakfast. Thomas has taken a lot of time and tried to help us in all questions. We highly recommend this accommodation and would like to come back one day! All the best, Henni & Paul

We were happy to find Failte the night before our trip to Mull. They had one room left that, though small, was just right and very comfortable. Hosts, Thomas and Isabel, were helpful and charming. Breakfast was really wonderful! All in all, a lovely experience and we would happily stay there again.

Thomas was very welcoming when I arrived (by taxi as it was pouring with rain when I got off the train from Glasgow; the B&B is up quite a steep hill, though only 5 minutes walk from the station). My room was very comfortable. I only stayed one night, so I couldn’t sample all of the breakfast menu, unfortunately! I... More

lovely home, bedroom immaculate - nice view over harbour. The breakfast was beautifully prepared and nothing too much trouble. Opted for scrambled egg and smoked salmon - the best i've had. Thomas was extremely welcoming and helpful with everything. Would most definitely stay again if visiting the area. The walk to town is a little hilly but not too far... More

We visited Oban only briefly as one of several stops on a 12 day tour of Scotland. I was travelling with my parents (66 & 70) who made the choice of Failte and we were beyond pleased.

What a find! A lovely warm welcome and the best breakfast ever - if you like good food this is the place to be.
