Wonderful host and delicious food
Classy, stylish, clean
Everything about the guest house was first class with the exception of the poor wifi connection.Staff were excellent too,very efficient and very friendly.View from our room was lovely looking over the bay.We would certainly have no hesitation in staying at this guest house again.
Poor wifi connection would probably put younger guests off.
Warm welcome clean and tidy choice of breakfast menu

Upscale decoration and wonderful view. ALao, the breakfast was excellent.
Bathroom was very cold.
Amazing view and location, helpful staff, very comfortable beds, very good breakfast. We would come back.
During our stay at 11pm the heating system (e.g., shower) stopped working, without previous notice.
Nothing at all!!
Mackays was a wonderful guest house, the staff where really friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and the shower was lovely. The wifi could of been a bit better. Oban is such a lovely place to visit. Will def go back to oban and mackays guest house.
We had a fantastic, large room at the front of the house facing stunning scenery. We loved the seats in the bay window where we could sit with a complementary sherry, to watch the view. Place was spotless and breakfast delicious. We had a very pleasant 2 days and looked forward to coming back to our room!
nothing we didn't like
We stayed for two nights in early October.The location was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room #3 was comfortable, clean and quiet. The large bath appeared to be newly renovated. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choices in a nice and bright sun room. Having a small decanter of sherry in our room on arrival and each day of our stay was a nice touch.
Providing bath robes but no face clothes didn't make a lot of sense! As well as large soap and shampoo dispensers were located in the large shower stall. For the price of the room, we expected individual packaged items for sanitary purpose. Our room was on the 2nd floor and at the back of the B+B and therefore didn't have a water view. It also overlooked another building which meant that the window coverings had to be kept closed.Wi-Fi was fair to poor in our room.
Very nice interior and clean rooms. Great view from sea view room! Kind host and hostess.
The beautiful house with all the lovely original features, The breakfast was really nice.
The comfort and the friendly staff, all in all a pleasant experience.
From the moment you arrive at MacKays you are blown away by the high standard of everything ! Fabulous room, with views to die for and great bed and pillows. Staff are so friendly and Bert is a treasure! Joan at breakfast is 5 star, loved the Haggis! Huge selection for breakfast and cooked fresh ! Everything is total class and the tipple of sherry in your room just makes your stay so perfect ! Will be back for sure 10/10 ! Room 7 Fabulous !
Having to leave :(
Location was great, 15 minute scenic walk to center of town. Room was beautiful and very clean! Parking was easy. Breakfast was good.
No complaints, would have liked to stay 2 days instead of just one.
The view is spectacular, within walking distance to downtown Oban. The staff did an excellent job, they were friendly and efficient. The breakfast was very nice.
The only blanket available for the bed was very warm. It would be nice to be able to sleep with a lighter blanket.
Myself and my other half stayed here for the weekend and were delighted that we had picked MacKays wish we had longer there as it was so pleasant as were the staff and owner, couldn't have been better. The room was clean and very comfortable with a very spacious and modern bathroom. The breakfast was excellent with a very attentive and friendly lady who couldn't have done enough for you. It was a pleasure to stay and will almost certainly be going back. Best guest house I have stayed in, thank you to all who made our stay so nice.
Fabulous location Front facing Bedroom with complimentary decanter of sherry Breakfast Friendliness of owner and staff Spotlessly clean Parking on site
Nothing to dislike
views from bedroom windows quality of room. good breackfast
I though a bit over priced but quality come at a price these days
We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The views were stunning. It was a dream holiday
The full package, clean, well located & a wonderful breakfast!
We were well looked after.
Toilet seat didn't fit properly. Wi-fi was hit and miss! We had room 6 with no views. We could've been anywhere.
Friendly staff, great breakfast, fantastic location on the seafront.
Breakfast choice, although breakfast was average, sausage was a bit tough to cut through. Views from the room and location. Welcoming sherry in room, although it was not quite enough for two small glasses.
Weather which cant do nothing about. Drainage in shower was full of hairs under chrome cover from previous users.And shower was not cleaned after our use as soap stains still on chrome cover.Dust on various ledges and toilet door, and cables behind wall mounted tv.
