We had the most incredible stay at Failte B&B - we would return in a heartbeat! The rooms were beautiful, incredibly comfortable, thoughtfully furnished, spotlessly clean, and immediately felt like being at home. Breakfast was terrific, and Thomas was always incredibly welcoming and full of fantastic local tips!

Tips:

Thomas’s tip to take the guided tour at Dunollie Castle was a great one - the guided tour was one of the highlights of our visit to Oban! The castle and family had fascinating history and passionate staff (plus a lovely cafe on-site for lunch).

A great location above the harbor with a short walk to McCaig’s tower and all the attractions of the waterfront. It is uphill from the harbor, so be prepared for a steep, but doable climb. Failte is tidy, quiet & relaxing with a certain quaint charm. We were met with very friendly service, great breakfasts and all the amenities one might need. We would highly recommend a stay if you are in the area.

Tips:

We had wonderful meals at Piazza on the pier and Cuan Mor, and enjoyed shopping and a tour of the Oban Distillery. One highlight was our 2 hour trip with Oban Sea Tours, to see local sea life and castles from the water, but trips to the many islands nearby are also available from the local ferry terminal.

Take the early ferry to Mull to improve your chances of getting to Iona. Be sure to eat some very fresh fish, lobster or mussels at the dockside outdoor cafe. In general this is the place to eat fresh fish!!

Great bookstore in town and the fancy restaurant EE-USK, while really, really, good was very expensive. But I did have a lovely harbor view, so you can consider that. Food was excellent.

Thomas is a gracious host. Our room was clean and comfortable. Complimentary tea, coffee, cookies and fresh milk were a lovely treat. Breakfast was delicious.

Tips:

The West Coast Tour offers a three island tour which is amazing. You can travel to Mull, Iona and Staffa. McCaig’s Tower is just a short walk away with stunning views of Oban. We were able to park our car right out front on the street. If you like fish, we recommend The Fish Market.

This was a lovely and quaint stay in Oban, a perfect seaside retreat. The home was immaculate, and breakfast delicious. You can tell they take great pride in their space, it was decorated beautifully and we had everything we needed for our brief stay. Would recommend and stay many times over - they even had a floor on the main room if stairs were an issue.

Tips:

The distillery tour is a must do, as well as walks around the seafront.

We arrived on our bikes and had a very warm welcome from Thomas. He showed us to the lockable bike shed and then to our room. He then brought us tea and shortbread, a really lovely gesture after a king day cycling. The room and bathroom were very comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast was superb, a good choice of cereals, homemade yogurt (delicious), very nice bread and a freshly prepared cooked breakfast. Scrambled eggs and smoked salmon set us on our way for another day in the saddle. Thank you for a lovely stay. The B&B is at the top of Oban so that was the only train I marked it down one point because I was done with hills on the bike but I would definitely recommend to anyone and would stay there again if I was in Oban. Thank you

Tips:

McCaibs tower is not far from the B&B and definitely worth a visit with amazing views over Oban.. We are at Piazza on the waterfront, where we had a delicious meal..

The room itself was clean & lovely it had a window seat which I loved. The following morning the breakfast selection & quality of food was amazing I would say the best I have seen for a guest house. It did feel like a home from home and that’s what you want it to feel like.

Failte is a hidden gem in Oban! And Thomas is a very gracious host. Upon arrival, he provided tea and shortbreads, and even brought fresh milk to our room for our in-room coffee and tea. The bed and the pillows were very nice and the bathroom facilities were clean and bright. Failte is located up a long hill, but within easy walking distance to all the attractions that Oban has to offer. We certainly recommend a stay at Failte.

Tips:

A minor quibble: If you’re coming from the USA, be sure to bring an adapter with multiple outlets, as this historic property has only one or two electrical outlets in each room for phone charging, etc. (We’ve found this to be true for many historic B&Bs in the UK.)

Following an exhausting day of touring we arrived at Failte Bed and Breakfast in late afternoon of 1st September 2022. Sensing our weariness owner Thomas greeted us warmly and invited us to settle into our rooms and then return to the dining room for a pot of tea and shortbread. Such a kind and thoughtful gesture hit the spot and quickly relaxed the three of us. Of all the other establishments we visited during our motoring trip through the Scottish Highlands none was a match in terms of warm welcome, cleanliness, facilities and scrumptious breakfast. Failte is truly the crème de la crème of B&Bs.

If requiring lodging in Oban Failte is the best B&B in town!

My recent stay was as perfect as the many others I have enjoyed in previous years. Thomas and Isabel have maintained the uniquely high level of care and welcome that Failte is known for. It is quiet, yet ideally situated - only a 5 minute walk to Oban sea front, and rail, train, and ferry connections. The breakfast options are of the highest quality, and cater for all appetites and tastes. The rooms are spotlessly clean with stylish decor.

Tips:

Try to get to at least one of the nearby Inner Hebridean islands. Kerrera, Lismore, and Mull are all within easy reach.

We had a wonderful overnight stay at Failte . The highlight was the breakfast which was superb and the Eggs Benedict exceptionally good. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay again. Thank you so much to Thomas and Isabel for hosting us. Rosie & John

Tips:

We stayed in the ‘Small Double’ but have to say don’t let that title put you off. Yes the room is small but the hosts have packed EVERYTHING you need into this small but stylish space. Clever storage solutions and creative use of the space with a window seat make for a comfortable and well equipped room especially for just the one night.

The Failte is located right above the city and less than a ten minute walk to many of the major attractions and some amazing restaurants. Would definitely look to them first if we are able to return some day!

I have enjoyed hospitality at Failte on many occasions. There is an instant ethos of 'welcome' which is consistent with its name. It is a stylish, impeccable clean, and a homely place to stay. Breakfast options are of the highest quality and breadth of choice.

Take time to get to the other nearby islands besides Mull - which is also great. Kerrera and Lismore are a short ferry crossing away.

Thomas couldn't have been more helpful. I was so very appreciative of being able to get in to my room early and stay for an hour in the morning. Lovely extra touches such as fresh milk for my tea and a chocolate by the bed! An amazing choice for breakfast. It really isn't a serious negative but I could always do without all the extra cushions in the room as I never know where to put them all!!

My best recommendation for dinner is Coast - I had a really excellent meal there. And the Fishermans Shack by the ferry for lunch.

On arrival Thomas greeted us and assisted with parking and carrying bags. A very welcome touch was the offer of a drink. A lovely cafetiere of fresh coffee and plate of shortbread arrived at our room. The room was decorated simply and tastefully. Bathroom was bright and spacious. Breakfast was delicious, freshly prepared and plentiful.

Tips:

The B&B is located at the very top of a hill. No issues for us, but do bear this in mind. Oban appeared very during our stay. We really struggled to find somewhere for dinner. I would strongly recommend booking a table prior to arrival. Thomas has some recommendations on his website. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Thomas is a fabulous host who made us feel extremely welcome. The roads are very narrow and parking can be a little tricky. It is quite a steep walk down to the town, which may prove too much for those with mobility issues. But all in all a gorgeous place to end a lovely day exploring.

Food was excellent - enough breakfast to satisfy a hobbit and they made me the most delicious food pack to take away when I was leaving early on one of the days to go hiking in Glencoe - I was so touched! Charming and helpful hosts who created a warm and safe atmosphere - absolutely delighted!

Tips:

Go to Tobermorry. Ferry prices are pretty cheap (just over £15 in total for 2 adults return tickets) however check out the bus prices as we were £25 return for 2 adults. I heard someone in front of us saying to the bus driver they were told it was only just over £4 per adult. I would check out especially if you are travelling with children. .

Meals and accommodation were all very good, given the restrictions caused by coronavirus requirements. I liked the communication system involving messaging by phone, although I was asked several times in the days prior to our stay at what time we expected to arrive - not easy to be precise until the day before.

Tips:

Ensure you book a taxi if arriving by public transport - very steep hill to climb otherwise! Not sufficiently familiar with Oban to make further suggestions.

Thoroughly enjoyable and made to feel very welcome and looked after. This was one of the best bnbs we have been to. The bnb was excellent overall - the house had great views, everything was comfortable, in order and well-signposted. Thomas made us feel very welcome from the very start. As we were heading out early for the day, he very kindly offered us a packed breakfast for the next morning and this ended up sorting us for both breakfast and lunch! The in-house breakfast the next day was lovely, lots of fresh, home made ingredients, and his recommendations were also very helpful as we navigated Oban itself.

Very welcoming and friendly considering our last minute booking and accomodating of our motorbikes. Tea and biscuits on arrival and useful information about the town and area including fish restaurants on the front. Attention to detail throughout, very clean rooms, choice of pillows. I actually enjoyed the short walk to the front and meant the location was really quite and had beautiful views of the islands. Have already recommended and would book again next time I'm in the area.

Tips:

Ee-Usk and Waterfront restaurants both great. Oban Inn has an offering of local beers and whiskeys. If you struggle to get a booking on the Mull ferry from Oban, consider the Corran to Ardgour ferry then working your way to Lochaline to get to Fishnish on Mull and then Tobermory, a great day out.

Highly recommend staying at Failte when you’re visiting Oban.

Tips:

Coast is a lovely restaurant with good food and great service. Recommend booking. Suggest booking. The shop on the corner by the harbour - Oban Whisky & Fine Wines - has the most amazing selection of gins and other spirits and wine. And some great packs of small bottles for presents.

Thomas is an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was excellent with lots of thoughtful touches such as storage and power sockets. The breakfasts were very good with an excellent selection available. The location is only a short stroll to the town cente with it's very good range of restaurants and coffee shops. The property is on high ground behind Oban so walking home may be a bit of a challenge to some, but the views and quietness make up for this. Highly recommended and we look forward to staying at Failte again.

Tips:

Oban is a quiant old seaside town which is fun to explore. It's main attraction is of course the CalMac ferry service from the well-equipped terminal. It has many fine dining opportunities. Some favoirites for coffee is the Chocolate Shop on the waterfront, and the Green Shack near the ferry terminal for excellent, freshly-cooked seafood. There is a nice walk along the seafront to the war memorial and up into the nearby forest. The Mandarin serviced laundry is also very handy.

We absolutely loved our stay at Failte! We stopped in Oban at the end of our two week trip in Scotland and it was the perfect place to relax before heading home. Beautiful clean and cosy rooms with wonderful views and delicious breakfast, we had everything we needed. Thomas was an absolute delight and took great care of us, while being very careful about covid rules. The B&B is a 5-10 minute walk from everything you need with the waterfront outside your window. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone taking some time out in Oban!

Tips:

We loved the distillery and McCaig's Tower!

From the moment Thomas greeted us by name at the door and showed us to our room we knew our stay was going to be worthwhile. OK let me start with our room We had a double deluxe room which was just beautiful... All perfectly dressed with a mini fridge also! Always a winner. The bathroom had a power shower which was just beautiful and the Towels where fluffy.. Again a plus!. Toiletries were included, shower gel, hand gel body lotion and cotton balls (a must for us ladies taking makeup off) then we noticed the little addad extras that makes Failte stand above the rest.. 2 face cloths, shower cap, mens Razor and ladies sanitory wear. We have stayed in more expensive Hotels and B&Bs... The Failte outdone them all!! Now comes the breakfast... What can i say here? We were given the choice of slot for breakfast as Thomas is very conscious of the social distancing rules (Thank Goodness!) We had homemade muesli and Granola fresh Scottish raspberries and blueberries to compliment the homemade yogurt mmmm! Bread and banana bread again homemade and a choice of jams of course homemade. It doesn't end there!! The choice for the cooked brekkie went from full Scottish which we thoroughly enjoyed on our first morning on the 2nd morning I opted fro scrambled egg and toast. The eggs were beautiful and utterly devoured!. There was no hassles at checkout either Thomas left is to it, no rush to throw us out which was appreciated. He even helped wen I asked about a taxi to take us down the hill to the bus station. (£3)so it didn't break the bank. The Failte is just up the hill a wee bit from the main street but it is walking distance, McCaigs a tower is about 8/10minutes walk away. I could go on and on about Failte and the artwork flooding the stairwells all done by Thomas's wife Isabel and his Son Pascal... Outstanding work!!! The Failte is definetly well named, we truly were given a Scottish welcome... Thanks Thomas your a real gent... All said and done we had a great stay here and look forward to a return trip in the near future

This is a well presented clean and stylish bed and breakfast. Thomas is a lovely host. I didnt meet Susan. I had to leave at 7.10am for an early long hospital shift on some of the days so I coudn't have the lovely cooked breakfast which is well worth it because Susan is the chef and doesnt start official breakfasts until 7.30am. Thomas however made sure I had coffee fruit,cereal and toast which was much appreciated. The ambience is pleasant and the artwork that adorns the walls is unusual and striking. The bedroom that I stayed in was clean, comfortable and had a single bed, a small ensuite shower room coffee making facilities and little added extras. I think Thomas makes a huge effort to make guests feel welcome and I would definitely book again.

Tips:

Covid restrictions will limit some activities but if you have a car and are staying in Oban for a while I would recommend a drive down the Mull of Kintyre to Kilmartin which is stunning. Or visit Easdale (slate) Island and Seil. The Crinan Canal and Tayvallich Nature reserve or Knapdale home of the elusive beavers, The Oban distillery or Ganavan Sands and Dunstaffnage or Dunollie Castle are closer by. The Isle Of Lismore is a 50 minute ferry crossing and has incredible panoramic views from BarrMOr and a cafe open 7 days a week during the season.

The room was lovely - very clean, a nice view and really good facilities. We loved all the artwork on the walls. Thomas, the co-owner was very friendly and welcoming. We would certainly stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Wonderful Host who is very polite, helpful, engaging and accommodating. A one night stay but based on experience would definitely be looking to come back to Faillte. Room was very comfortable with everything at hand to make my stay comfortable and relaxing. Was served tea and shortcake on arrival (these little things can mean so much...!) and the breakfast was simply 10/10. Covid regulations were in place and observed by staff and residents alike. Overall, highly impressed with this Gem in the centre of Oban.

Location up a hill but still close to town centre so not a problem. Plus it gave good harbour views. Room 2 was a little but small. The door could only just squeeze past the side table. But again it wasn't a big problem because the bed was so comfortable! Lots of facilities (e.g. toiletries in the bathroom, mini fridge, fresh milk). One comment is that there is possibly too much in the bathroom! My opinion is bar soap is unnecessary in addition to liquid hand soap. I did appreciate a sanitary towel in the bathroom though - a very thoughtful detail. There was a large selection at breakfast. I am said I did not get to try everything. I'd like to come back to try everything!

Situated on a hill and I think all the rooms are upstairs so not ideal for people with mobility problems. The double room for 1 person was fine but for 2 people would have been a little cramped. The host and breakfast was lovely. The room was very clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The only slight disappointment is that there was no where to sit in the house to relax, like a lounge.

Lovely accommodation. Spotlessly clean. Owner Thomas couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was everything you could want. Will definitely use again in the future.

Our room was advertised as a triple but in fact was an amazing suite with two separate bedrooms. Great location and views of Oban.Owners were so friendly and helpful, rooms very clean and breakfasts amazing.

We stayed with you for a night in March. The place was absolutely stunning and the room was perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed being greeted with some scottish shortbread and tea- perfect for a cold, rainy march day in Oban. The homemade jam and the fresh bread was a delicious way to start the day. We still rave about the jam to this day! Everything was amazing and we cannot wait to come back! Falite Bed and Breakfast is a must and was one of our favorite parts of our Scotland trip! Thank you for all of your hard work and inviting us into your gracious home.

Tips:

This place is in the perfect location! Just steps from local bars, the Oban distillery, bakeries, fish and chips, and the Oban chocolate shop. Although our visit was filled with rain and cold weather, there was still plenty to do, including spending time outside. We were unable to check out the neighboring islands but we were told they are a must see. We enjoyed a tour of the distillery as well as taking walks along the water.

Outstanding. Our last trip here in 2019 was fabulous, yet Thomas proved this was no fluke. His hospitality is perfect - quiet yet available and interested in his guests. The cleanliness in this Bed and Breakfast is unbelievable. His rooms and their bathrooms are utterly spotless. Fresh milk in a small fridge to make yourself a nice early morning cuppa before a big breakfast....the ideal start to a hard day being a tourist.

Tips:

EE-Usk restaurant is amazing for fresh seafood lovers. But book - it gets busy. The Oban Chocolate Company for a stunning hot chocolate and caramel brownie. The Oban Inn for a great pint and local ‘buzz’. The Oban Distillery - superb venue for a whisky trial and purchase of local souvenirs.

What great hospitality!!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was cozy and clean. Good location. And the breakfast was delish! Best breakfast of our week.

Tips:

Oban chocolate company is a must. Sit and have a chocolate or coffee or a waffle sundae. Insanely good. Ee-Usk was a great seafood dinner. We enjoyed getting a pint or two at the Oban Inn. Great pub.

Lovely Room and breakfast. The owner, Thomas , was very friendly and welcoming. Lots of small touches in the room which you wouldn’t even find in a 5 star holiday. Couldn’t recommend Failte B&B highly enough .

We were completely charmed by this lovely place, by Thomas's helpfulness and hospitality and patience, by his wife's resplendent breakfast, and by the house and its setting. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found it, and highly recommend it!

The room was perfect, the tea and milk was a nice touch, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast spread in the morning was lovely, with good vegetarian options, and the freshly prepared meal was delicious.

Tips:

If you are around in the winter, when a lot of touristy sights are closed or have limited access, if it isn't raining too hard, I recommend the view from Pulpit Hill over the bay, if you're up for the fairly steep climb. Along Gallanach Rd there are nice views of the nearby islands. The Oban Chocolate Shop is a great place to sit, relax, and look out over the bay. The Sticky Toffee Pudding at Cuan Mor with a dram of Oban Distillers Edition is also recommended.
