My Husband and I arrived an hour early however the owners showed us to our room which had a nice outlook. The room was compact however no complaints with adequate facilities and good shower.
The breakfast menu is excellent and cooked superbly by the owner.
Handy off street parking outside our room.

Room tip: Most rooms are similar and very quiet with picturesque views.

You have an onsite owner here that knows food, knows the region and keeps an open bar of single malts as well. This is a very well run but more than that, one run with a desire to do more.
Rooms are adequate, typical B & B but with great views and everything works. Parking is in back, secure and convenient.
The big thing is the atmosphere, a great sitting room, an onsite pub and a great location only a few minutes from the ferries at Oban.

Oban is a lovely coastal town, lively and colorful. It does not go to sleep by 6 like St. Ives or Brighton (which were rather disappointing). Most of the shops close by then but the beachside cafes remain open till late and the tourists can be seen strolling along or just sitting by enjoying the sea breeze late into the evening.

Braeside Guesthouse is about 7 miles upwards, located jut off the A816 and facing the Loch a couple of hundred yards across the road. The establishment is owned, run and managed by Jon and Cherry, a middle aged couple quite young at heart. Their warmth radiates to everything around them.

We were given Room No.4, a very large one with an equally large picture window with a view of the loch. Very well furnished and kitted out with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Cherry’s affectionate touch was evident in the selection of cookies laid out with the tea tray or the bowl of fudge placed by the bedside.

Since all meals were home cooked and to order, dinner time was limited to 7 pm, but the bar was manned until Jon called it a day at about 10 or so. A lovely little bar actually, and pretty well stocked too. Breakfast was a BIG affair. Too much of it and much too good to be missed out. If you’re a light eater, better discuss things with Cherry first, she likes to feed her guests.

The only little thing out of sync here was the WiFi. For some reason it packed up along with the bar around 10 each night. Probably something to do with the router being plugged in there somewhere. Nothing that cannot be easily sorted out.

Every once in a long while you come across a host who makes you feel like coming back to the same place again. Jon & Cherry are one such couple. Thank you both for a memorable weekend.

Had booked an overnight stop to break the journey south and were delighted to find the reviews for Braeside were not exaggerated. Only a few minutes outside the bustle of Oban. Very warm welcome, great attention to detail (GF choccy biccies on the hospitality tray - gold star). Room not huge, but nicely decorated and immaculate. Effective shower and an exceptionally comfortable bed, which was very welcome after a week in a cottage with a very dodgy bathroom and mattress. Very good, and well presented local information and advice on places to visit.
Refreshed from a great night's sleep we were presented with an excellent breakfast next morning. Shame about the weather - could barely see beyond the bushes, let alone the squirrels etc that come around the house. Next time maybe!

Hosts were very welcoming and friendly. We only stayed one night and left early due to an early boat to Tiree, but the hosts couldn't have been nicer and packed a breakfast for us. Room was clean, bed was comfortable and off-road parking was great. The whisky collection couldn't be faulted either!!
