Guest Reviews


    • “Amazing views from lovely, homely apartment”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Just returned from a week at this lovely apartment, which was like a home from home, especially as we had mixed weather and were in it more than if it had been sunshine. It is very spacious and well-furnished with everything you would need. Yes, some things like the suite need attention- a throw would help that- and yes, you have to pay for electricity but, even with nightly baths, we still paid less than anticipated; and yes, there is carpet in the bathroom, but everything is spotless and clean. But the wonderful view and sunsets from the lounge and the very convenient location, only a few minutes walk from the town and restaurants and ferry- and across the road from the Chocolate Shop!- make this a great place to stay, and we would have no hesitation in staying here again if visting Oban.”
