Warm welcome, very friendly staff. Great location with good parking; quiet part of town overlooking Oban Bay. Pleasant room was very comfortable. Great choice of breakfast. Thank you. Hope to visit again.

We spent three nights here in a very nice room with lovely views across the bay. It was comfortable and clean and the breakfast was excellent. There is sherry in the bedroom and the hotel is easy walking distance to the town.

Stayed here on 10th April. Had a lovely big room on the ground floor that also had a little lounge. The owner was lovely and couldn't do enough for us. She provided a great breakfast. Will definitely book there again if in the area.

Stayed here earlier on this month for my first visit of the year and am delighted that it as good as, if not better, than before. Spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast and lovely staff. Would recommend room 12 for the sea view. Looking forward to returning in June for Oban Live.

We loved this guest house. Our room was large and airy, overlooking the bay, and the breakfast was outstanding! The staff was warm and welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. I would definitely stay at the Glenrigh again on another trip to Oban.

Comfortable room although a wee bit on the small size for a "superior" room. Room 10 on first floor has a nice view over the bay, a double bed, tv, tea/coffee facilities etc. the room door and en suite door both need a spray of oil on the hinges though! Breakfast was great both days! Easy 5-10mins walk into town....
