A warm welcome and perfect accommodation after driving from Skye. The room, bed and bathroom were of a very high standard and coped with the unusually warm weather without a feeling of stuffiness. Lovely views and just far enough from the town centre to afford a bit of peace and quiet after short stroll. Great private parking for those with...

good location on the seafront, offered a welcome dram when we arrived and really nice room at the back in the new part. host was welcoming when we arrived. did feel like it was a little over efficient with the amount of rules etc, but we were wet and tired on motorbikes so probably just struggling to take them in...

Great location. We stayed only one night as we were on our way to Skye and wanted to cut the drive in half. We had a small room in the back of the house but we were well aware of this since we were notified by email by the owners. The room was nice and clean. Bed was really comfy!!The...

Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed very comfortable accommodation in a great location on the esplanade and close to restaurants and shops. The room was a good size and to the rear of the house (this was made very clear to us before we booked so we knew there was no sea view). The staff were all very friendly...

We stayed just one night but thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. The place was full yet the hosts made time for guests - a very nice welcome, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast provided a good selection to suit a wide variety of tastes. The situation is good, right on the esplanade though away from the really busy part, yet still...

Room 15 was stunning and spotlessly clean. Huge bay window looking out on all the Cal Macs and yachts coming and going. Stunning views and sunsets and that's before you've even left the room. Room facilities were great - couldn't fault anything. The hosts were friendly and helpful, and breakfast perfect! Lovely walk round to the town centre. Far enough...

We arrived to a friendly greeting from Frances, after ringing the doorbell at check-in time. She kindly showed us to our rooms, gave us restaurant recommendations when we asked about that, offered us the whiskey and sherry that were in the lobby, and told us about breakfast and the order form for cooked breakfasts. Just talking with her made us...

Very friendly, very clean, very comfortable, great breakfast. It's on the esplanade, so there is a little walk along the front to the town centre, but that's part of the holiday, and this year there were black guillemots breeding in the sea wall, so you watch them up close as you walked by. There was also a small sensory garden...

Return visit with my partner to Kilchrenan, and what a perfect holiday! I have holidayed all over the world, but my favourite place is Oban and Kilchrenan - no, seriously. For the most chilled out and scenic holiday, this is it! Fran, Col and Katherine and Co. are lovely, genuine folk, who make it their vocation to ensure everyone has...
