Hawthornbank Guest House
Ranked #16 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2017

We really loved Hawthornbank. Of all the hotels and B&Bs at which we stayed in Scotland over a 2-week period, this was our favorite room. When we stepped into our room, I was taken aback by how nice it was. The bedspread and drapes were striking and dramatic. The owner had not owned the place very long, but he runs a tight ship. Everything was clean and tidy, and breakfast was generous and tasty. We stayed 2 nights. If I had to do it over again, I would have spent more time in Oban. We used Oban mostly as a launching point to Iona, Mull, and Staffa, but Oban was lovely in its own right. Hawthornbank is highly recommended. We definitely would stay there again.

Stayed here with my family of 5, plus another family of 5. The house is truly fantastic, very classy, and well maintained. The location is minutes from downtown and the harbor. The owners were very pleasant (though I think the size of our party, with older teens and young adults, made him just a bit anxious). Breakfast was great. The only thing I wish the house had was a common room. Recommend.

Cheerful, pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful owners of a pretty B&B - had the sun come out we would have enjoyed sitting on the terrace, but the rooms were large and the top floor rooms have a lovely view (twin). Breakfasts were amazing, and in room everything was thought out with great selection of tea/coffee/biscuits. Clean and modern. Location perfect for zipping into town or catching a ferry.
Highly recommend - the best B&B we had during this stay in Scotland.

It has been nice to stay here. Ian and his companion are very nice. Breakfast is good. The rooms are ok an comfortable. The guest house is next to the centre. The only problem: for the first and second floor there's no elevator. If I go back in Oban, I'll get a reservation with this guest House
