I stayed at Failte for 4 nights in May 2017. Thomas, the owner, was attentive to every detail during my stay. His varied cooked breakfasts were absolutely delicious and generous. The breakfast room was always laid out in a welcoming fashion, with a wide variety of home made breads, jams,cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts etc I would definitely stay at Failte...

We circled up a narrow street to nearly the top of Oban and found this charming b&b. Thomas greeted us with a huge grin, hot tea and shortbread and keys. He was a wealth of information. The room was lovely decorated in white and blue. Two comfortable leather chairs sat by our window overlooking the town. Every place to see...

Oban is a delightful town and, in warm weather, feels more Mediterranean than Scottish! A wee BnB up the hill allows you to sample the local bars and restaurants at your leisure, and a short walk to McCaig's Tower to appreciate the town's setting will build an appetite. Failte is well placed to offer all of this, along with friendly...

Good to find a B and B offering single accommodation. Warm welcome and excellent breakfast, including home made yoghurt and very good Eggs Benedict. As with much accommodation in Oban it is an uphill walk from the station, but that means you are already halfway to McCaigs tower! Helpful information on places to eat.Thoroughly recommended.

Failte is the best place to stay in Oban! The room is clean, very comfortable and well decorated. Breakfast is exquisite and tasty. It has everything one could ask for and more! And Thomas is just the most perfect host!

Very comfortable accommodation with friendly efficient hosts. Would stay here again. Very convenient for harbour area, which is an easy walk in distance, but steep. Great view. Parking in the driveway was very convenient. We had an early ferry, but the continental breakfast was excellent.

A steady climb up the hill reveals a delightful BnB with a warm and friendly host. Our room had a bay window where we could sit and relax looking out over Oban. Remember to order eggs benedict - a wonderful start to the day.

Excellent breakfast and very friendly proprietor to talk to! Room was beautiful and extremely comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to going again in the near future. The B&B was also in good walking distance to all amenities.

Have stayed at Failte B&B in March 2017, unfortunately only for one night! Over the years I've been to a bunch of places in Oban, therefore I can say - this one is outstanding! Thomas and his wife keep a very clean and comfy place in a very good location. Everything is in great shape with light colours, wooden floors...

“The room was a single, it was beautifully clean and comfortable with drink making facilities in the room. It had a shower and toilet within the room. The room had always been freshened up when I returned late afternoon, with clean flannel etc. There was a TV and radio in the room also. One could not ask for more and the rate for Bed and Breakfast represented very good value for money.”

“The front room's bay window and view is beautiful, but the back is a little quieter- no cars passing- and has a larger bathroom.”
