Good Hotel Guide Review
A fresh, bijou air wafts through Mark and Suzanne McPhillips’s hillside B&B in a grand baronial pile offering epic views of Oban Bay. The hosts, both architects, retained the mansion’s stained-glass windows, moulded ceilings and a fine wooden staircase, but kept it light and bright, adding modish furnishings and contemporary art. Uncluttered bedrooms have every amenity: fluffy bathrobes and Scottish toiletries in a spacious bathroom, tea-making facilities, wine glasses, a corkscrew; in most, superb views. Unusual breakfasts, served in the turreted dining room, may include porridge with raspberry cranachan or a cheesy spinach frittata. The helpful McPhillipses have ideas aplenty for trips around the Inner Hebrides. The town centre, harbour and seafood restaurants are within walking distance.
