Guest Book

Travelling with 2 small children isn't always easy & we have never found a b&b to accommodate our needs, such as staying close to the kids, having somewhere safe to park a well-loaded car & getting a crack-of-dawn breakfast.

The packed breakfast for the ferry made that aspect so much easier.

The lounge & wee touches like wine glasses were really appreciated. But our abiding memory will be my daughter throwing up as soon as she walked in the door & how unflappable you were!
Thanks so much for washing & drying the offending clothes before our 6am departure.

It was well above and beyond any expectations we had. We were all a bit gutted to not be staying longer! But it is fantastic to know we now have somewhere so ideal to stay the next time we are in Oban.

Thanks so much again. Our stay at Kathmore made the best start to our holiday. We will be back!

Name: Ann Pardy

Message: Stayed for one night on route to the Outer Hebrides. After an eleven hour drive to get here Morven greeted us warmly and showed us our room and the lounge. As we were leaving early the next morning she showed us where our breakfast would be. This is one of the cleanest B & B' s we have stayed in. Very comfortable, lots of room, big shower and plenty of sachets of coffee. Can highly recommend this B&B.

Morven and her staff do a wonderful job to make your stay as pleasent as possible. The rooms are well appointed with tea and coffee and lovely wee biscuits, a flat screen TV with freeview and a DVD player, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast has plenty to choose from and will set you up for your days activities.... Thanks

Excellent accommodation, very convenient for the ferry - we were in our rooms 15 minutes after disembarking - and a wonderful warm welcome from Morven and Keith. Breakfast superb. We'll certainly be back.


Name: Denise & Katy Peters

Location: Fort Worth, TX

Message: My daughter and I stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean and nicely furnished, breakfast was great. It is close (easy walking distance) to the town centre and restaurants. Nice area in back with table to just relax. Keith and Morven were very helpful and friendly, and obviously enjoy what they do. My daughter still quotes from the funny story they told us one evening. We would definately stay here again!


Name: Mike, Nancy and Laura

Location: Mobile, Alabama

Message: We stayed two nights at the Kathmore House on our Scotland tour. The accomodations were lovely and the breakfasts were delicious. Morven helped us out of a bind by washing some clothes of our daughter (she even folded them - way beyond the call of duty). We don't hesitate in recommending this B&B for travelers to Oban.


Name: Fred, Gale, Aaron, and Eric

Location: Seattle, Washington, USA

Message: My wife and I and two sons stayed at the Kathmore while we toured the Isle of Mull, Iona, and Staffa. We found Kathmore to be delightful, clean, tastefully decorated and the breakfasts were GREAT. My wife and I shared a room with full bed and my sons a room with twin beds. Morven spent significant time with us familiarizing us with Kathmore while checking in and making suggestions about places to eat and to visit. The evening of our last night, Keith spoke to us at length in the lounge about places to visit during the remainder of our stay in Scotland. Morven and Keith were super friendly and helpful and even returned my electric toothbrush which I left in our room!!

Name: Susan Schipani

Location: Nashville, Tennessee USA

Message: I recently spent 5 nights at the Kathmore and can recommend it highly. The tidiness of the guest house itself, the helpful friendliness of Morven, my hostess, the excellent location, and the tasty breakfasts all combined to make me feel that I had found a home away from home in Scotland.
