Just returned from our trip to the Alexandra Hotel in Oban. The hotel was excellent as was the food and service. Staff in the dining room were super efficient. No cold meals at this hotel, all hot food was served piping hot and tasted great. We really felt that all the staff and including Brian the manager cared that we... More

We had a great stay at the Alexandra on a package holiday with Highland Heritage. The hotel was a bit regimented as to eating times which revolve mainly around the Coaches and the excursions timings, just 1 sitting time for Breakfast and Evening meals. It is not very Disabled friendly either, no access to the front of the building which... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this hotel. We had a room with a wonderful view of the harbour which we got for free as there is usually a charge for this kind of room. The food and the staff were very good with excellent attentive service.
