We were recently booked at the Kings Knoll by a tour company. Several of us were situated in a back hall ( annex) sort of area. The room was small, ill-equipped, and chilly. Others in our group, who were upstairs, had nothing but nice things to say about the hotel. So, the answer lies in getting the "right" room. We... More

My friend and I stayed in this hotel for one night and were glad it was one night only. We did not choose the hotel it was booked by a holiday company. The electrics in the room were very dodgy. the main light did not work, their electric towel rail in the bathroom was broken revealing wires, there were a... More

My friend and I stayed one night in Oban at the Kings Knoll Hotel. When we arrived the internet was out so the man at the desk did not have access to our reservations. Our room was up the stairs, down the steps, and around the corner. Lugging our bags was a bit of an effort after a day of... More

Just back from spending 2 nights here. Small, friendly, great breakfasts. Clean and comfortable rooms, modern bathroom. Small terrace, where you can sit out if you are a smoker, lovely views over Oban bay. Only downside WiFi came and went. Would definitely recommend.

We only stayed one night during the summer holidays after coming back from Mull but this hotel was happy to let for a single night in peak season. The accommodation was clean and had what you need after a hot day's driving, a comfy bed, shower and TV. They also put my in-laws up at short notice due to a... More

Travelling through Scotland and lucky to find a room in Oban, we had not realised how popular Scotland would be this summer! A traditional hotel with very helpful and professional staff. Room clean and comfortable, only 10 minutes walk from centre with restaurants. Good breakfast and lovely view over the harbour. The shower a little small and not quite up... More

This is an older and somewhat funky place, but in a good way. They accomodated our large group, and we had a great lounge area to gather and talk about our day after hours. Great breakfast food and the service wonderful. The ensuite showers were really small but I was glad to have one. The beds provided good sleeping. If... More

I loved the atmosphere here. The persons in charge are kind and helpful. The room was clean, no noise, so calm. Wifi was in the diningroom space where locals had their dinner. Breakfast was good and in a nice room.

It appeared that this place was once an old hotel motel and still had a few locals come over at night for a few drinks with the manager/barman. The manager was very friendly and nice. Gave good advice and is a bit of a character. The rooms are a bit old but neat & clean. The shower didnt work very... More

While the hotel is small, only about 18 rooms or so it has a great view of the bay and the sound of Kerrera. You need to walk a bit to get into what most call the center of town but that's good too. Once there you can find anything you want..shops, eateries, places and things to see. How about... More
