Family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) spent 3 nights at this lovely B&B. Breakfast was amazing (don't miss the porridge!!). Beds were super comfortable and rooms spacious and nicely furnished. Easy walk into town down the seaside esplanade. Owners are very gracious and helpful. Highly recommend!

Our first 2 days at Kilchrenan House were extraordinary. Room 15 was straight out of the past, with a fireplace, writing desk, and sofa with harbor view. The bed and bath, though, had all the modern conveniences. Frances is a funny and accommodating host. Breakfast was efficient, delicious, and filling. Our third night we had to move because of a...

From the very warm welcome by mine hosts, Colin and Frances everything about our stay at this lovely b&b was excellent. A great location looking out over the bay. Our room was large and tastefully decorated in keeping with the traditional style of property. Although some people may find it strange having to pre select their breakfast choice the evening...

Owner was very accommodating, visiting on the phone prior to our visit and guiding us in when we arrived. Parking is a little tight but the location is outstanding. View was phenomenal. Breakfast was to order and perfection. Made our visit to Oban that much better.
