1. Decide 10.30AM Thursday to go to Oban and spend the night as it was a glorious day. Looked online with “booking.com” which has always been reliable in the past and booked Glanavon as it had two beds and available (now know why). 2. We had to pick up the keys from the Palace Hotel but there was no instructions...

Thank you for the time taken to write a review. Glenavon is a family home that offers room only accommodation. We do not provide or advertise cooked breakfasts at Glenavon! We try and provide clear information on what we provide so that guests are will informed before arrival. At roughly £25 per person during peak time we find it strange...

had a last minute appointment for work in Oban. A place I love. found what looked like a bed and breakfast, ( it pays to read all the relevant details.) In fact this was a house owned by the Palace Hotel. Guilty in the fact that I never read all the details when I printed my receipt off. so Arrived...

Thank you for the time taken to write a review. Glenavon is a family home that is still lived in by the family that built it and offers room only accommodation during the summer in three bedrooms. Continental breakfasts are offered at Glenavon as an alternative guests may have a cooked breakfast at The Palace Hotel. It is clearly stated...

no-one at the B&B to liaise with on arrival or departure! Rooms cleanish and musty smelling! one bathroom to share between 3 bedrooms is really disappointing. One (1!!) hand towel left in room for 3 people (it was me and my 2 kids)- we all had to share it for our showers! Breakfast not included unless you pay £7.50 per...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Glenavon is a family home not a B&B and there are contact numbers for assistance should no one be about. We no longer provide towels with our rooms (except a hand towel) although we have Egyptian cotton towels available for hire should you hot have your own with you. We...

I don't like submitting a poor review of a family-run business. To the Palace Hotel to collect the keys. It smelt stale. A guest (or so I take him to be) in the bar called the owner. We then had real problems identifying the (unlit) house. I was very reluctant to leave my car on the road...it would have been...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review however there are several points I would like to raise. The price of £80 is for 3 people (2 adults and a child) in the room unfortunately no other rooms were available that night during the bank holiday weekend. The tv includes a standard sky box and has bbc london...

Myself and my partner arrived in Oban and desided that as it was a major highland event that weekend that we would stay so we booked a last minute room at this B&B when we first entered the room there was an overwhelming smell of air freshener and i commented to my partner saying that this smelt like it was...

Glenavon is not a bed and breakfast but a family home. A small number of rooms are available for visitors however these rooms are provided without breakfast. Self service continental style breakfast is available at cost price and was available for all guests that had booked it. There were several of us staying upstairs in the house who could have...

The Glenavon could be a really nice b&b with a bit of tlc and attention to detail both of which its currently lacking. Myself and my friend had two rooms booked so this review will cover both of them. My room was the bigger double room - it was a good size and clean. However it seemed a bit disorganised...

Glenavon has been home to three generations of the same family since being built by my grandfather John Donn approximately half a century ago. The wires leading from the television are to provide a choice between terrestrial tv, freesat and freesat HD. Coax, scart and HD cable. The bedside light was likely to have been unplugged for the vacuum cleaner...
