Real value for money the food was really good also the entertainment. The Hotel is in a beautiful position on the Bay, kept very clean... More

An excellent Highland break we took the M-F break but opted to drive ourself as we were going other places before and after - rather than the chalets behind the car park we should have had we asked for and got a superior sea view room which was excellent. As others have said meals a bit regimented but were quickly... 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

A weeks stay/coach holiday with Highland Heritage. Apart from manager staff entirely Eastern European, friendly enough but why no jobs for the Scots!! Beds cheap cardboard covered frame with lumpy mattress, poly/cotton sheets (yuk) Breakfast and dinner just about OK but no fresh veg served, either frozen or tinned, breakfast sausages and other ingredients seemed the cheapest of cheap. So... 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.

Hotel was good. Nice en-suite room. Good view across the Oban Bay. Staff attentive and almost all from eastern Europe. Hand sanitizing gets on your nerves. Food very bland and specially prepared for older people who apparently don't like anything spicy or adventurous. The average age for the 6 day tour and hotel must have been 70 with many having...

My wife and I were looking for a suitable hotel in which to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary in this year (2014). In 2013 we booked and stayed at the Alexandra Hotel in Oban (requesting a downstairs room overlooking the harbour), and due to the superb holiday that year at the first opportunity rebooked again this year, requesting the same...

My Mum and myself just returned from a 6 day break with HH, and would like to say we had an amazing break. The staff were friendly and worked hard, always smiled and nothing was too much trouble. The room we occupied was a double on the first floor, and it was warm, comfy and very roomy for the 2... More

Our second visit to The Alexandra Hotel and our fourth trip with Highland Heritage. Our coach was very comfortable with plenty of leg room, the harbour view room spacious, clean and comfortable and the food great. One of our party is gluten free and on the Scottish night she was given alternatives for every course. Anyone who has complained on... More
