For an hotel used by a coach company it is very good. Clean, tidy, friendly staff. The restaurant food is... More

This is a hotel used by Highland Heritage Coach holidays. It is basic, but good food, good sevice, and on the sea front , near to all the towns facilities. May be in need of a little TLC in places. Excellent value.

The room we had was at the front of the hotel with lovely views over Oban and the bay, but very exposed to rain battering the windows and wind creeping in any little gap !. The room and bathroom was... More
