A really comfortable, quiet apartment ideally located for all that Oban has to offer and with a perfect view of the ferries coming and going, and boats messing about on the harbour. Argyll is a wonderful part of Scotland - staying at 3 Oban enhanced our experience/holiday.

“Simply Perfect.”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My husband, infant daughter, father, and I had a fantastic stay here in early May. The weather was terrible and I'm so glad we had booked this apartment for our stay, because as many others have said, watching storm clouds drift across the water from a cozy couch in the living room makes perfect entertainment. It is a fantastic location, walking distance to everything you could need yet out of the main city. My daughter enjoyed watching the ferries come in and out of the dock. Communication was fantastic with Grigor and Ruth, it felt like chatting with friends. We had a few changes we had to make to our booking Ruth was so very very helpful. A great walk from this apartment is to Pulpit Hill-we went there for a few sunsets. There are numerous other walks that are also easy to get to from the apartment.

Looking at the photos, I just want to go back!!! I can not recommend this property enough.

My partner and I stayed in this apartment for 5 nights, on our first trip to Oban, to celebrate my 30th birthday. From when I first booked, to during and after our trip, the communication with the owners Grigor and Ruth was fantastic - they were friendly and really helpful. On arrival we trudged out of the howling wind and rain and into an oasis of warm, charming comfort. The apartment feels very new and clean, yet has gorgeous 'period'-style features such as high ceilings and huge windows. The finishing touches went above and beyond your standard holiday let or hotel - for example the dove-grey towels were large and fluffy, rather than standard scratchy thin white ones, and there were vases of flowers throughout the flat. One of my favourite bits was the living room window - stylish floor-length curtains framed the large window that looks out over the sea. If only there wasn't so much to do around Oban I would've been happy just relaxing in front of that view!

There were only two of us on this trip, but the apartment was very spacious and could easily have housed another couple or two.

The location of the apartment was brilliant - just by the ferry terminal (very handy for our early morning trip to Mull), making it walking distance from the main strip (5min) but slightly out of the bustle and busy traffic. We found it easy to park for free for the duration of our stay, alternating between the road behind the apartment and the leisure centre car park (10min walk away). The large Tesco was within a 10min walk from the apartment, making it very easy to stock up on supplies (although we were so close to the plethora of restaurants in town that we ate out most nights). Thank you, Grigor and Ruth, for a lovely stay in your wonderful apartment - I would recommend this place to anyone.

We so appreciate your lovely words, and thank you once again for choosing 3 Oban.

“Beautiful modern home with personal touch!”

Two couples rented this flat in Oban. Great location with a welcoming atmosphere! There was a nice bottle of wine and some fudge waiting for our arrival. The rooms were spotless, and while we did have some heating issues the first night, Grigor was available immediately to help and it was taken care of as soon as possible.
Kitchen had some basics and there was lots of space for everyone. Parking can be a bit of a challenge, but no big deal. Great modern decor, comfortable beds and only 5 minute walk to ferry and downtown. Great view across the water too!
