I only had one night this time but it was a lovely quiet, comfortable stay with excellent hosts and a beautiful breakfast the following morning to set me up for a days travel. The town of Oban is beautiful and The Failte is just a 10 minute walk from the centre. William.

Enjoyed my 2 night stay in the single room. Comfy bed, considerate host (catered for my request for earlier breakfast), splendid breakfast, small but functional en suite with nice soaps etc. Short, steepish walk from seafront. Good location.

Stayed in Thomas and Isabel's wonderful guest house for two nights - and could not find fault with anything. Arrived earlier on the Friday than had anticipated - Thomas was working in the garden and was genuinely apologetic - when it was our fault for arriving too early! As soon as we were into our room Thomas came and offered...

I have great memories of our time last summer at this delightful place! The B & B is only a short walk from the station, but it is a steep climb and luckily our brief conversation with the very cheery taxi-driver helped us out about a couple of places to go, as well as being quite informative about local rivalries....

Stayed here for two nights whilst travelling about Scotland a bit. We were up for the Highland Cattle show and sale. Haven't stayed here before whilst in Oban but would again. Very friendly hosts, great breakfast, spotlessly clean. Bathroom is a bit small.

My wife and I spent a week in Scotland at verious hotels, inns, and B&Bs, and we both agree that Failte was the best experience. The room was nicely decorated, clean, and had a nice view. Trish was very helpful, even coming out to help us with parking. Breakfast was very nice.

My wife and I had only one night's stay here, and so wished we could have stayed longer. The room we had was wonderful, on the first floor with two comfortable chairs in the big bay window facing the view over the town and harbour. Our hosts were so kind; they gave us a warm welcome, directions on where to...

This lovely B & B is up the hill from Oban's main street but it's only a few minutes' walk. The views are wonderful. Our room was clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable, with a big bay window looking over the sea. The owner was welcoming, friendly, and accommodating, and nothing seemed like too much trouble, including providing gluten-free bread...

Warmest welcome to a charming, very comfortable home, central but quiet. A superb gourmet breakfast cooked to order - such a luxury after tired hotel buffets, plus wonderful home made jams. Tasteful décor, sparkling cleanliness, brilliant advice on excellent restaurants, when and what to visit in a stunning part of Scotland. Excellent value. We were sorry to leave.
