      Called the Guest House - to be greeted by the word "hello" - not even St Annes Guest House. Website says and I quote- "You are sure of a warm welcome". Check in is between 4pm - 7pm ONLY, Check Out is 10:00am sharp. The pictures on the booking sites are generally out of date. Made the trip to Oban arrived at around 18:30pm, greeted by a nice lady who advised breakfast is between 08:30am and 09:30am on a sunday. Ordered the full Scottish Breakfast for me and my wife @ 9.50 per person = 19:00. Settled for 09:00am. Went down for breakfast at 08:55am - no one in the breakfast room so waited. Waited until 09:25 - 30 minute wait and still no one. Tried calling the various numbers listed no answer. Messaged the mobile number to state what had happened - to get a very empathetic reply of "sorry about that, we will refund your card". Which I though was lack lustre, a call may have been nice?. Upon reading the reviews this is not the first time that this has happened - where customers have paid for breakfast and not received what they paid for. Later that day I called the lady and got through - I asked what had happened about the breakfast, very dismissive and unapologetic - when I said I expected something for the inconvenience when I had to travel elsewhere for breakfast she laughed at me. The bathroom was via going into the main hall way - not shared bathroom - but bizarre set-up. Room generally outdated / needs upgrading past the 1980s. THE WORRYING PART - THE SMOKE DETECTOR IN THE ROOM WAS COVERED WITH TISSUE AND TAPED IN PLACE. THIS IS A SERIOUS BREACH OF FIRE REGULATIONS AND HEALTH AND SAFETY. This was reported to Oban Fire and Rescue Service. Recommendation for landlady - Move to an island in the middle of nowhere and do not interact with human beings its not your skillset

      My husband and I visited here as part of a tour provided by Highland Experience Tours thus we had no inkling of what was coming. This B&B was horrible. When we arrived it was freezing cold in the house to the point that after 5 minutes of being inside my teeth were chattering. I was given a space heater for my room and told the heat had gone out!! The bed in our room had a mattress that was so old the springs were pushing through. All in all a miserable stay of thankfully only a few hours.

      Although there are mixed reviews, I found this guest house a pleasant place to stay. It's a two star accommodation and for the rating it was perfect. The girls were very friendly, nuturing and helpful. When booking be aware that the amount does not include breakfast or parking. The breakfast is expensive although it us freshly cooked. A cheaper alternative is wetherspoon at the harbour which does a great brekkie for under 5. Parking is 9 per day, although if you go out then there is no charge before 9am and after 6pm. My friend and I had the twin room which was ideal for our needs. I wish to say a big thank you to the staff and hope the guest house continues to grow in its ratings.

    • Very Nice Accommodation, despite previous reviews!

      Karen and I approached this stay with some trepidation, after reading some awful reviews of this B'n'B. We could not have been happier however with the room, clean, well furnished and homely. The staff were very welcoming, chatted happily and were extremely helpful. The bathroom was shared, as advertised, but spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent. We could possibly had the same breakfast cheaper around the town, but for convenience found it was worth paying the extra, rather than trail our luggage around looking to save a couple of pounds. All in all, an enjoyable stay - recommended!

      Awful......dirty. smelly unfriendly....shared bathroom. Throw back to 1970.... i would not recommend this place to anyone. We psid 80 for 1 night and we were told you get what you pay for. I have stayed in Air B&Bs throughout my trip to scotland costing roughly 45 including breakfast and they have been amazing.. You had to pay extra for breakfast at this place. By the way...i dont usually leave reviews if all was ok.....this was no where near ok....
