After an eleven hour journey we arrived at the hotel. Having booked early and being "upgraded" we were facing the car park at the rear of the hotel, apparently a sea view room has to be requested. The upgrade by the way was two apples and two oranges in a bowl. The sheets on the bed had been changed but... More

Unfortunately we had a room with no view, although it was extremely clean and there was sufficient tea/coffee facilities , fresh fruit on arrival. The en-suite was immaculate, clean towels each day.

We were also at the accommodation during four consecutive and rare (for Scotland) sunny days. The room was quite spacious and had great views of Oban Bay, even viewing some dolphins... More

On arrival we were very disappointed to find that the free upgrade consisted of 2 apples and oranges, and 2 bathrobes added to an ordinary room. We had paid extra for a sea view but the room was small, dark and dingy.The bathroom... More

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
