Stayed here as part of the Highland Heritage holiday. The journey was very long, with unnecessary stops. The feeder coach had toilets, the HH coach didn't. Our return journey took 13 hours. The hotel is a cross between Fawlty Towers and a Channel 4 documentary. Dated decor, possibly to the 80's. WIFI only available in certain parts of the guest... More

Long journey 13 hr from Solihull to Oban and back was not good. Feeder coaches had toilets but Highland Heritage Coaches need upgrading with toilets. Hotel tired and needs refurb, poor wifi, food good but not anything special. Our room was large and good sea view as requested. Tours good with lots of info from knowledgeable driver but felt rushed... More

From arriving at the hotel to leaving, I was really impressed by the service and courtesy I received from the hotel staff. The room was clean and warm with tea/coffee making facilities, T.V, and even those extra special touches such as a dressing gown and hairdryer which is good for a 3 star hotel. The hotel has beautiful views of... More

Just arrived back home from having a very mixed holiday at the Alexandra in Oban. I had read a lot of the reviews and to say that they were mixed is an understatement. The total journey took about 12 hours. 5 hours with Darren on the feeder coach and 6 hours with Alan on the H.H.coach.Fortunately the weather was very... More

Having read a previous review, I was rather dubious about my forthcoming trip on a Highland Heritage coach trip to Oban. My previous experience was that the coach trips were very good value for money and that the food went down well with my great aunt, a meat eater, and was acceptable for me. Whilst not necessarily providing haute cuisine,... More

Nice hotel,but needs a bit of TLC. Needs new beds and bedding. Our double room was small and there was nowhere to put you luggage. Food was ok. Staff were friendly and helpful. The owner has got OCD and asked everyone to wash their hands with cleansing foam at every possible moment.

Our room was nice and the view was lovely as was the scenery on our daily trips, our coach driver (Roy) was excellent and kept us well informed. The meals were very nice even though the service was was a wee regimental, having said that the serving staff were very good, well mannered and efficient, nothing too much trouble! Hygiene... More

Stayed with my mother for what was supposed to be a 70th luxury treat. Superior room was very nice and clean, can't complain for the money. Staff mainly East European and very hardworking, but as already mentioned they have no time to talk to the guests and often cannot understand questions about food etc. As a vegetarian I had hoped...

Due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to stay in our property in Oban so booked into the Alexandra Hotel. The hotel is situated right on the front with fantastic views across Oban Bay and has private parking. We were greeted by helpful friendly staff who showed us to our apartment which was a large room with all facilities and... More

We were visiting Oban at the weekend to attend a family wedding. We were lucky enough to get availability at the Alexandra Hotel apartments. No problems with parking(unlike the rest of the town!) check in and check out were handled with no fuss. Good sized room with good facilities. We also had dinner on the Sunday night.Service was very quick... More
