    Beautiful apartment but we initially had problems finding the parking space allocated for the accommodation. Also, I would ask you to consider improving the kitchen facilities by adding a frying pan, corkscrew and tea strainer. Overall we loved Captain's Folly.

    We have rented here for about 10 years and love it. They have put in anew bathroom and kitchen making the place even more luxurious..

    Well located with great views. However the free parking promised does not exist. The nearest free parking is approx 1km away and uphill. Otherwise prepare yourself for a rather large parking bill. Had issues with cleanliness i.e fridge was filthy. The toilet seat was a 'boobytrap' and the avalanche of soot and debris falling down the chimney in one of the sitting rooms on the Thursday night was the final straw. Did mention all this to the owners staff but they were only concerned about the next guests due after us. Oban is a great place; but to be honest look for other accommodation.

    We loved Captain's Folly. Superb location on the front, with double-glazed windows keeping out almost all the noise. Wonderful views across the bay to Kerrera. Furnishings all of a very high standard. The bed was amazingly comfortable and we both slept really well all week. Really useful having a clothes pulley in the kitchen so we could still dry our laundry despite having no outside space. We put 9/10 for equipment only because we couldn't find a bread bin and the corkscrew was broken. We put 9/10 for value for money because the apartment has one bedroom but two sitting rooms, the second of which felt a bit of a luxury. However these were only quibbles, we loved the apartment and would definitely stay there again.

    We were very pleased with our stay at Captain's Folly. It was a lovely home from home with very comfortable sofas and armchairs. The view was spectacular as it is right on the harbour front and has three large windows. We only missed a hairdryer and lemon squeezer. The bed was a touch too hard. This did not stop us from enjoying our stay immensely and felt sad to leave.

    We had a wonderful stay at Captains Folly in Oban. The flat is large, beautifully decorated, extremely clean and well equiped. The location could not have been better, right on the main street facing the harbour. We could sit on the balcony and watch the ferries come in and out. Parking is a bit of a problem as there is no designated space and using the car parks can be expensive. However the owners suggested we park at Coran Halls which is a 5 minute walk away and this was ideal. We would definately stay here again if we return to Oban.
