We stayed at Springbank House in January (our party consisted of me, my husband, our three children and our two dogs. We only have one regret, which is that we didn't book for longer!
My first impression on entering the house was how clean it was. It was truly immaculate and extremely well presented. The bedrooms were warm and inviting and the pillows were amazing!! Combined with the tranquility (the house is set back from and elevated above the main road. We didn't hear any traffic whatsoever and had the benefit of amazing views) I genuinely had the best nights sleep in longer than I can ...more
The location and cottage were excellent. Fabulous walks from the cottage with superb views and lots of wildlife, especially birds. We had good sightings of a sea eagle. The cottage was well equipped, but extra hand towels in kitchen and downstairs bathroom would have been useful.

We enjoyed three nights with our teenagers at Argyll Mansions. The location could not be better as long as you don't mind the stairs. What a view and all of the town's amenities and ferries to mull and islands are right on your doorstep. Hiring bikes from Oban Cycles and a sunny day cycling around Kerrera was a highlight along with some excellent meals. We would love to return. Sam was very helpful through booking and gave some great tips for eating out.
This is our second stay at Tigh Griannach and we loved it even more than the first, especially now there is an ensuite in the second bedroom. This cottage is really looked after and has such a homely feel. It is spacious and clean and the views are to die for. I could literally sit at that window seat all day. Our dog Ollie loved lying in front of the fire after a busy day exploring. The location is great and only a couple of minutes drive to the nearest pub (defo recommend Oyster inn) and only 15 mins to Oban. The owner Isobel and her husband are lovely and really want you to enjoy your stay....more
