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.

The view is to die for from the lounge windows and the location was first class, the rest was an added bonus.

The apartment was excellent, situated overlooking the bay with a balcony that could not have been better. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We left with heavy hearts wishing we were staying longer, one of the best holidays ever.

Our second visit to this property and it won't be the last! Excellent location in centre of town with magnificent views irrespective of weather. The owner was extremely helpful and obliging.

Have gone to this property for the last 3 years and loved the view and the location but the property is dated - the bathroom has a carpet which will be full of germs, so i always take about 4 bath mats to cover it then throw out when we leave -it has an Ala baba basket beside the toilet which must be covered in urine so we move it when we arrive, the grouting is black. The double bedroom has blankets so always take our duvet with us, the drawers have paper lining with drawing pins. The living room is spacious but has a dated dangerous fire and a carpet like a jigsaw with a frayed suite. The balcony is great but unsafe as the railings are broken and rusted which has been like that for the last 3 years We have reported this but the owner does not want to spend any money on it since the view is amazing enough to not bother about the standards of safety and hygiene. This property is great if Oban is warm but if it is cold there is a coin meter which is set high so could cost you a lot if staying for a week. - we were hoping that the place would be updated or at least cleaner and safer since it is the main disappointment, but after 3 years it's safe to say 3 times is not a charm.

I would recommend this property. Huge sun-trap at back of property, fantastic views, very large lounge and great balcony overlooking Bay.

Oban is a great place to stay with lots of good eating places, lots to do in the town, and in the surrounding area, in all weathers. The apartment is in the ideal location. The apartment is very charming, and the views from the sitting room are stunning. The owner is thoughtful and has been very helpful, and we cannot wait for our next stay.
