This was my first time at The Alexandra Hotel although I have been on quite a few Highland Heritage holidays. What a lovely hotel it is. I had a really great room with a perfect view over the bay. I had plenty of time to explore Oban. The meals were very good and the entertainment was good too. The staff... More

Not my thing, but my mother (75) loves coach trips, so we booked this one with Highland Heritage - our first time with them. We concluded we would be happy to go again with this company. The hotel is part of the HH package, so not an 'open to the public' hotel, and therefore geared towards servicing the guests on... More

This was our first time at the Alexandra, but second HH holiday. Another fantastic time. The Manager Bryan and his wonderful staff made this an exceptional long weekend.the catering is of a very high standard and Highland night is especially interesting. There is entertainment every evening encouraging guest mingling and interaction. Oban is a great place to visit. The trips... More

First time we have been on a coach holiday and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. Yes its a long trip, but 50% of the journey was through some of the most picturesque scenery in Britain. The hotel is a little dated, But ideally placed on the front at the North end of the bay and has unhindered views of... More

Have been with Highland Heritage many times and have again returned from a great trip. The manager, Bryan, and his lovely staff were very attentive and helpful. There was a slight mix up with our room, but it was remedied right away and we enjoyed a restful stay in our twin beds (husband snores!). Can't fault the service provided by... More

To celebrate our wedding anniversary, we again traveled by Highland Heritage Coach Tours to The ALEXANDRA Hotel in Oban. From Lincolnshire the journey to Scotland is very scenic and we were able (due to the fine weather) to appreciate the changing views. On arriving at the hotel, we were warmly welcomed by the manager, who efficiently allocated our rooms. Although... More

My wife and I have just been to Oban with Highland Heritage Coach Tours to stay at The Alexandra Hotel in Oban. The journey to Scotland from Yorkshire was very smooth, and although there are no toilets on board, the driver seemed to stop often for "comfort stops". We were warmly greeted by the manager and staff on arrival, and... More

I took my elderly Mum away for a few days on a Highland Heritage Coach tour to Oban, and have to say I was pleasantly surprised. She and my Dad frequently did this type of holiday, but it was a first for me. Mum uses a wheelchair although she can walk short distances, and the hotel was perfectly well designed... More

Just returned from a last minute break to Scotland at The Alexandra Hotel in Oban - the weather was a bit mixed, but the views from the hotel made even the rain look spectacular! This was our first time at this hotel, but we have stayed with Highland Heritage before. This hotel is run along the same lines as one... More

Stayed over the Easter break 2015. What a farce! The most uncomfortable coaches ever travelled on. They are basically 'Short haul day trip vehicles' with no toilet facilities, uncomfortable seats and our coach had a loose bearing in the Air conditioning unit (right above out seats) which made a noise like a hammer drill when operating. On reporting this to... More
