The warmest of welcomes awaits you at Roseneath home of Sarah Clarke and Robert. Constructed in 1881 when Oban was expanding as a Victorian tourist resort Roseneath was built as a family home for a Mr and Mrs Porter and their nine children. Today the house stands as a testament to the fine craftsmanship of those days from its solid granite exterior to the beautiful internal plasterwork of the ornate ceilings and splendid original Oregon pine staircase. However there is nothing dated about the service comfort and facilities offered to present-day guests. We are happily situated on Dalriach road one street up from the Main shopping area/Restaurants/Ferry/Train & Bus links/Corran Halls/McCaigs Tower and are very close to the Atlantis Sports and swimming pool. Our passion for home comforts We offer a relaxed ambience and Scottish hospitality together with breakfasts with locally sourced ingredients and all that is good from Scotland. Menus are prepared using wherever possible fresh Scottish ingredients and we are happy to cater for vegetarian and special dietary requirements (though we would ask that these be highlighted at the point of booking). A traditional Highland breakfast is served between 8.00 - 9.00am in the dining room as well as healthy and continental options including locally sourced cheeses. The variety of choice on the breakfast buffet has become quite a feature of Roseneath hospitality. We are happy to provide packed breakfasts for guests who have to leave for early ferries. Accommodation comprises 7 double and 1 twin room but we are pleased to welcome single travellers when availability permits. Three of the front-facing suites have the additional advantage of their own private sitting room adjoining the bedroom. We are happy to welcome guests arriving in Oban on late ferries from the Islands.

We stayed in on the 3rd floor in a room that overlooked the harbor in Oban. The view was phenomenal. The room was satisfactory in size and included a complimentary guest tray. Wi-fi was a bit spotty, but we were welcomed to use the dining area for better connection speed. The owner was extremely welcoming and assisted by making dinner reservations for us and giving us the history of Oban as well as many ideas of places to visit. Breakfast was chosen the night prior and was ample for our needs. The stairs were quite squeaky, as you can well imagine in an old house, but being on the 3rd floor, that was not an issue for us. There is a private parking lot in back of the B&B. The rooms in the front overlook the harbor. The rooms in the back overlook a garden. We were able to easily leave the car parked in the lot and walk down and back up the walkway to the house. It is well lit and quite convenient. I highly recommend staying here for a unique experience.
