A superior guest house overlooking Oban Bay
The warmest of welcomes awaits you at Roseneath, home of Bill and Sarah Clarke. 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. Our passion for home comforts, relaxed ambience and hospitality , together with breakfast tables laden with all that is good from Scotland's larder is in the magic we create
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
