6th comment: Liked the view and space. June 2010.

7th comment: The location in the very centre of Oban was very handy (close to shops, restaurants, ferry terminal). The style of the furniture and the decoration were in line with the victorian building, and the flat was very welcoming after a day spent hiking under the famous Scottish weather. It was perfectly clean. Aug 2009.

8th comment: The accommodation was very good as promised, but the promised car parking space was taken and there was only expensive on street car parking available as an alternative. Aug 2009.

9th comment: The apartment was lovely.the views over Oban harbour and Isle of Mull were magnificent. Ideal for visiting the islands, we went over to the island of mull and took a coach trip round the island. We only used the car once while we were in Oban as there is a lot to do in Oban, and a fish restaurant opposite the apartment on the quay side which is well worth a visit or two! May 2008.
