Great stay at Kathmore
You are made to feel at home as soon as you arrive. Accommodation is very clean and breakfast is excellent. The room we had was compact but fine for our 2-night stay. Morven and Keith are super-passionate hosts and certainly go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. Would certainly recommend and hopefully will return one day to do more exploring in this wonderful part of the country.

A great stay to take the Covid blues away
2 night stay visiting Oban and a sailing over to Mull for the day. I stay in many types of accommodation in my job and this is by far one of the best if you want a warm welcoming friendly environment, feel like we have stayed there for years. The room we had (8) was super clean and fresh with all the homely touches you want to expect. To mirror other comments Well impressed with sanitisers And the COV19 cleaning programmes it made our stay safe and stress free. We had an early ferry on day 1 and received a full packed lunch in place of breakfast to take with us, again those little touches made our stay. Also when we returned we had a cleaned room with fresh milk ready, brilliant Good off road safe parking, close to centre 5mins walk and is by far the must place to stay in Oban. Great stay defo stay again
