Room was spacious, breakfast good (once i worked out how to operate toaster) Business meant i was gone too soon. If in area again, will... More

Stayed here for 2 nights short break. Warm welcome on arrival & friendly staff throughout our stay. Our room was comfortable & clean, with tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was very small & a bit dated compared to the bedroom but was clean & toiletries were provided. The shower was poor, however, as I couldn't wash my hair due to... More

Beautiful old building located on a slope.Walking distance from the water front. Very decent, clean, well furnished cosy rooms. Staff very courteous and co-operative. Breakfast was sumptuous and delicious. Could have spent few more days. Both the Hotel and Oban are really wonderful and memorable. Hope will get an opportunity to visit again soon.

Once again we stayed for a fortnights holiday. Although the weather was not to kind (showers most days). The service provided was excellent, the meals (breakfast and dinner) were more than ample. We even said to Tom smaller portions please, well my waistline has expanded, so it is not a criticism but anyone staying will definitely be well catered for.... More

When we were looking for hotels, we found it difficult to find anything within our price range as they were all expensive and we wanted something for 1 weeks' stay so we could use it as a base to explore the west coast of Scotland. We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the hotel. Although it's a victorian hotel,... More

Five of us stayed here for an overnight trip in August. We had three doubles booked. All rooms were clean and tidy and at breakfast nothing was too much trouble and the traditional full Scottish breakfast was amazing !! Few mins walk to the town centre so location great. Would def stay here again.

Having arrived at short notice in Oban, was really glad we chose this hotel. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, especially the manager. Room was spacious and clean with a lovely sea view. Hotel area was quite, yet only a few minutes walk from town centre. Plenty of variety for breakfast, which was well cooked. Enjoyed our stay here, would... More

A fine place. Clean, very pleasant staff. Were very accommodating to us fitting us in last minute, which we appreciated very much. Place is pretty old fashioned, but all of that is fine and as you would expect really in a 3* in Oban. I just can't believe the price in relation to all of the above. I'd stay here... More

We stayed here on the 26th August 2013. We had a lovely room, with an excellent view. The owners (family run business) have been there about three years. They were friendly nice people. Our room was clean with a really good bed (unfortunately I was sleeping with Snorey! Which is always a sign of a comfy bed!). We went for... More
