A useful stop off for the ferries from Oban, we spent one night in a very comfortable bedroom and it had a very spacious bathroom. Decided to eat in the hotel restaurant and had an excellent meal - 5 courses all superbly produced and expertly served. They also have a very good and quite extensive wine list - very pleased...

What a lovely boutique hotel. My husband and I made the Manor House our base for 2 days of exploring Oban and the Isle of Mull. The location is well suited to town, the ferry docks and lovely hikes out of town towards the castle. (a walk to the top of the nob behind the castle is well worth the... More

The Manor House is excellent and all you expect from a four star hotel. We enjoyed our stay very much and our dinner, breakfast and lunch were of a high standard. We hope to use The Manor House on a regular basis as we feel so comfortable in the surroundings and it is such a joy to be there. Thank... More

Just back from a great overnight stay including dinner bed and breakfast at the Manor House. The attention to detail and the overall customer service was the best we've experienced in a long time. We had the pleasure of eating in the restaurant and the standard of the cuisine was first class. A top end experience and worth every penny... More

Very nice one night stay here. Stayed in a superior room with sea view. The rooms are on the small side as stated and there are some minor issues but overall a great stay.

Thank you for writing. I spoke with the manager and he apologizes for the heat in your room not being turned up earlier. The girls like to air the rooms each day so they are fresh. We choose to have the two blankets on the beds as it allows us to have traditional bedspreads which we feel are tidier than... More

We visit Oban every few months and it is an absolute treat to stay at the Manor House. The bedrooms and public rooms are very comfortable and have real character. I love the original cast iron range in the dining room which adds to the homely and authentic feel of the place. The food is consistently high quality both at... More

Easily the best place to stay in the area, Room 4 being our favourite more so than the seaview Especially when one can see a deer looking down over Oban. The Manor House is extremely good value for money

This is an absolute gem. Delightful and charming old building overlooking Oban Harbour. The rooms are cosy and well furnished with extra touches such as fruit and bottled water. The restaurant meals are absolutely superb. Elegant and understated with absolutely impeccable service. It's on the mid to upper end of the price range, but worth every 'penny'.
