High Cliff Oban Reviews
"Don't stay for just one night as you will want to stay longer!"
We have just returned from the High Cliff Bed and Breakfast in Oban after a 3 night stay over New year and what a fabulous time we had. The hospitality and quality of the b and b is second to none. Returned there for new year as we had a wonderful weekend in August when we met Maureen and Mike and their hospitality would be hard to surpass. We chose the High Cliff Bed and Breakfast after reading the Trip advisor reviews and what people say cannot compliment the guest house enough. The beautiful bedrooms and attention to detail are a compliment to Maureen's wonderful taste and expertise. Breakfasts are a true delight and the best any guest house could ever serve. I would recommend High Cliff to everyone and the three night deals are amazing value for money. We will most certainly be returning in the spring.

"First-class facilities and a first-class host at very reasonable rates"
From the moment we walked in the front door we were made to feel genuinely welcome. High Cliff has been recently refurbished to a very high standard with quality fixtures and fittings throughout. Each bedroom is unique whilst retaining the overall quality feel that the owners clearly strive for. Maureen was the most welcoming of hosts, indeed nothing was too much trouble. Her personality and warmth make her instantly likeable and after 5 minutes it felt like we'd known her for years. The food was of the very highest quality, all fresh ingredients, served in almost opulent style in the sumptuous surroundings of the dining room.
We had the pleasure of sharing a drink or two with Maureen in some of the local pubs and became life-long friends. We're already planning our next visit and will ensure next time it's for at least 2 or 3 nights, which you need to be able to sample all that High Cliff and Oban has to offer.
Simply can't rate Maureen and High Cliff, high enough! The perfect unforgettable weekend! Thank you Maureen; see you again very soon!

"Excellent Stay!, Incredible Food!"
It is not often you are lost for words when completing a review... sometimes you can think of things instantly to be negative or to give constructive feedback. For me, the stay was "perfection defined", from the moment we drove up Glencruitten Road, you could see instantly that there was attention to detail in this property.
Having recently received a total revamp, you can only but commend the owners on the attention to detail as well as the explicable high standard in decoration throughout, this equally transfers through to the host Maureen, where simply being the best is not good enough. We were offered a choice of rooms, we decided on the front facing room, which had a fantastic view, also the TV, was in the Bed Stead with Freeview.
The bedding, decor, free cookies, coffee etc etc were outstanding, You can tell immediately that this place deserves 4 stars !!. In fact it makes me wonder what you have to do to get 5 stars!. We were shown the dining area, which is decorated how a banquet hall should be in a stately home.
The sleep was fantastic after going out. Breakfast was another story. Served Bacon, Eggs, Sausage, Haggis, Tomato, also do poached eggs....as well as also being given fresh yoghurt, selection of cheeses and all continental options like bananas / cereals etc.
We were even offered when we called to book fresh fish caught on the day either Smoked Salmon, Salmon or Haddock... I have never been offered that before.
I wish i could rate the stay a 6 out of 5, it is simply that good.
As I said perfection defined !, book early to avoid disappointed....
Only negative was we should have stayed longer....we will certainly be back !!
Thank you Maureen for a perfect stay !
What a lovely b and b - unlike any other bed and breakfast we've stayed in. The standard and finish of the house and room were more akin to an expensive hotel, but still with the charm of a lovely old building and a very warm welcome also. Maureen the hostess was very accomodating and with excellent local knowledge. She also served up a huge and delicious scottish breakfast in the morning, in their lovely dining room. We won't hesitate to recommend this b and b to anyone and look forward to our next stay there.
Probably one of the best b and b's in Scotland, let alone Oban!

We stayed here after another b & b had double booked. I am really glad we got a room at high cliff bed and breakfast. Without a doubt the nicest b & b I've stayed in. Will be back for another visit.
