We stayed here B&B for one night recently.The room whilst fairly small was immaculate. The added touch of bottled water in the room was a welcome extra. I had requested a gluten free breakfast. A very substantial "hot" breakfast arrived including g/f toast. My experience of G/F breakfast often results in a half empty plate, but on this occasion the...

We stayed at Glenrigh for three nights. The room faced the sea and we had a wonderful view to the west and south. The decor was charming and consisted of a very large bed, two comfortable armchairs and sufficient wardrobe space. The bedding was lovely and there were spare pillows and blankets available. Little extras like shortbread, sherry, bottled water,...

Once again the welcome was brilliant from Iona and her dedicated team. Beautiful spotless room with lounge was as good as ever. Great attention to detail and luxury extras make this a simply perfect place to stay and enjoy Oban and the islands. We were so glad we chose to stay here again. Wonderful breakfast with great cold options, simply...

Stayed here for one night. The rooms were well appointed and clean. Glenrigh is located right on the esplanade at Oban, so has some great views! Situated not far from the centre of town.The hotel staff were excellent - they sorted out a problem with our booking in a friendly, efficient, and very apologetic manner!

Great little guest house on Oban's promenade with scenic views over the bay. Very accommodating staff and very good breakfasts. A most enjoyable stay, just wish it had been a little longer. Very family friendly too. Only downside was the Wifi didn't work.

This is so perfect for a girly weekend away. Four star accommodation with a five star service from Iona and her staff......spotless ensuite bedroom in the annex with all the comforts from home just like a mini bungalow. Full traditional Scottish breakfast perfectly cooked ...scrummy yummy Definitely worth a visit you shouldn't be disappointed.

Our stay was just average. This was our one night splurge on our trip through Scotland and it didn't live up to what I was hoping for. When we arrived the reception was cool at best (I found out when we checked out that it was not the owner that checked us in, it was another staff member). Basically we...

Easy to find and very attractive both outside and in, rooms are a good size and modern. Do not have a large evening meal as the breakfast is superb, plenty of almost anything you could wish for. A highly recommended overnight stay and even better if you stay for longer.

Only stayed one night, but the Glenrigh was perfect. Lovely room, very clean and modern. Excellent staff, and breakfast was an absolute treat. Highly recommended. Parking on the property and free wifi are a bonus. The owner was lovely and couldn't be more helpful.
