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

Impressive location on a hill overlooking Oban harbour. A good 5 minute walk into town and an easy 10 minute walk back, but use the back roads. We stayed there for 5 nights and loved every minute. While the hotel could use some updating the rooms we had were bright and clean with great views. The staff too were very... More

We went to Oban for one night on the spur of the moment and this was one of the few hotels with rooms on a Saturday night. It is in a reasonable location but on a hill - only 10 minutes walk to the town though so not too bad. The room was very small but clean. The bar area... More

A major accident on the road to Oban stopped all traffic in and out of town for 7 1/2 hours. Being stuck on the road just two miles from the hotel was frustrating. We had made reservations at one of Oban's fine seafood restaurants, but when it was apparent that we were not going to make it for dinner, we... More

The Kings Knoll is about halfway up the hill on the road out of town. It was a bit too far for me and my wife to walk into town, but if you were in a reasonable state of fitness it would be no problem. A hint on parking in Oban: the ferry terminal is right next to the train... More

We stayed here for two nights midweek. The welcome was warm and friendly but not overpowering. We had room 7 which was small with a very small bathroom, but it was adequate. The room and bathroom were very dated and could do with some TLC, ( a new shower curtain would be good) but it was clean with hot water... More

We arrived early evening following a 6 hour motorcycle ride in torrential rain. The owner welcomed us and suggested we might like to get comfortable before completing the check in. This was an excellent idea as were all longing for a hot shower. The food was good and good value. The hotel has a great location on the main road... More
