My wife and I have stayed here many times and have never had a bad experience. Colin & Frances are terrific hosts and help with tour and restaurant recommendations, Welcome drink is also a nice touch and breakfast can be as much or as little as you like with smiling,helpful staff on hand for more coffee etc.

The Kilchrenan House is just a short distance from the Oban city center. Many people walk into town, I preferred the taxi. It was about a $5 ride to anyplace in Oban. My room did not have a sea view although it was a decent view out through the trees on the back side of the House. The rate was...

We had a wonderful stay at the Kilchrean House. The room was very comfortable and within walking distance to Oban. The staff was very helpful when we arrived with directions to the Oban Distillery to make our late afternoon tour.

My third visit to this B & B and it is still brilliant. The owners cannot do enough to make you comfortable ans at ease.

From the welcoming dram of whisky to the farewell, the stay couldn't have been better. The accommodation is ideally situated on the seafront overlooking the harbour and close to the town centre. The room was very clean & comfortable with the usual facilities (tea/coffee etc.) and the breakfast was very impressive, the "full Scottish" on the first morning and scrambled...

We needed accommodation at short notice when our ferry to Colonsay was cancelled, and this hotel was perfect. 2 lovely rooms, a friendly welcome and an excellent recommendation for dinner (Piazza) meant that what could have been a frustrating delay in our holiday turned into an added bonus. Throw in a tasty breakfast and flexible breakfast timings and what more...

We stayed for one night and had a room downstairs with a sweeping vista view of the Harbour (we even had binoculars provided...a nice touch!). Short & scenic walk into the town. Room very comfy with huge bed...I almost lost my 'other half' !Owners were very friendly & hospitable. Tasty breakfast with very cheerful staff. Highly recommended!

Kilchrenan House is one in a row of large property on the Corran Esplanade, in my opinion the very best place to stay in Oban. Lovely sea views, nice walks along the waterfront, quiet, and in walking distance into town. I looked at a few online, and ended booking this one because it was cheapest at the time. About £70...

An absolute palace at Oban Harbour with magnificent views and easy walking distance of the shops , restaurants etc. Kilchrenan is run by people who know their job and I would recommend to anyone. Rooms are excellent and so is breakfast which is served by 2 ladies who are a credit to the business.
