After an 11 hour journey by coach we arrived at the Alexandra at 6pm. As the coach stops at least every two hours for "comfort breaks" etc this was acceptable and as expected. We were met by the manager and his staff who gave us a lovely warm welcome. Most of the staff are foreign but language was not a... More

Our family of four shared two rooms situated at the back of the hotel, we were told all rooms are wheelchair friendly, which they were if you don't mind pushing up and down steep inclines!!!!! I did request the rooms/chalets at the back of the hotel to be fair because my Dad smokes and it would be easier for him... More

Stayed in this hotel as part of the coach tour package with Highland Heritage. We were promised a lot and were even 'upgraded' but we were not given the things promised. The room was also up in the gods and very small. Our so called sea view was only viable from a small window as the chairs could not be... More

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

Our third trip with Heritage, first time to the Alexandra. 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. The bed was uncomfortable. The staff worked extremely hard and were very pleasant. This hotel is in a... More

My wife and friends stayed here, the staff were hard working and helpful, but the food was basic and bland, not for people who like a varied menu. They did'nt really encourage you to stay in and use the bar facilities. Could do with a better draught beer selection. The lager was awful, could do with stocking some crisps, nuts... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights as part of a package coach holiday with Highland Heritage and had a premium sea view room on the third floor. 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
