I recently had the pleasure of staying at Kilchrenan House. I stayed in room #15, which was located on the first floor with a fabulous view of the bay. The room had everything you would need – en-suite, large flat-screen, hairdryer, coffee/tea, sofa (w/ binoculars to view across the bay), wi-fi, toiletries, etc. I was met by Frances and Colin,...

We stayed in Room 5. It has a magnificent view. One day we spent most of the day just sitting in the comfortable chairs looking out at the activities on the water. Oban is a lovely town. Lots to do and a good jumping off place for numerous ferries. The B&B was very nice and Colin and Frances were very... More

We went here on a recommendation from our friends and we were not disappointed. Colin and Frances are the most warm, welcoming couple we have met in a long time, with a vast knowledge of the local area. They have a huge selection of local menus and even have the ferry timetable. The views from the immaculate rooms are outstanding... More

We stayed here for 1 night so probably did not get the full experience described by other travelers. We arrived fairly late (8pm) after a long drive and were anxious to put down our stuff and find some dinner. To us, the place felt more like an Inn than a B&B. The upstairs rooms are along a long hallway. The... More

We were "so lucky" to get a cancellation at Kilchrenan House for a few days. We were met by Frances with such a warm welcome ( a wee dram or sherry or sweeties).

Where do we Begin? The owners went overboard to make us happy. Colin and Frances so lovely and kind. Incredible sea view, fabulous food and perfect location. Not to mention the whiskey and sherry waiting for when you arrive home after a day of sightseeing! Top experience.

A delightful traditional B and B in Oban. Located close to the centre with beautiful harbour views. Colin and Frances are delightful and really care for their guests. Full of useful information of things to see and do around Oban. The rooms are spacioys and clean, with an excellent selection for breakfast. Very homely and welcoming. Would thoroughly recommend.
