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

Our quartet of travellers decided to visit the Alexander Hotel with Highland Holidays on our first coach holiday. What a good trial this was. The pre-travel information was excellent and we arrived slightly later than advised but the room allocation was extremely fast and our cases were delivered to the rooms before we got there! The hotel is magnificently situated... More

Fantastic hotel. The decor is little on the tired side but it adds to the charm. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are very helpful and nice. The food was very affordable and really tasty. The only drawback is that they were still cleaning our room when we checked in at 3.30pm and they had doused the bathroom... More

My husband and I have just returned (2nd June) from the Alexandra Hotel and I can only think that the negative reports are from a rival coach company! We read all reports before we went, and was on the verge of cancelling, but decided to make up our own minds. Yes the journey is long, if that is a problem... More

Booked our trip 10 days before travelling, and had a brilliant time. Excellent value for money! Hotel was spotless, staff friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Rooms very comfortable with fruit, snacks and bathrobes a nice touch. Bathrooms clean and functional with extra towels, facecloths and toiletries provided. Great holiday and will certainly use Highland Heritage again!!

The hotel is in need of updating it appears to be stuck in time,it is clean and the staff are attentive. Can be commended in ensuring all keep hands clean and do not pass any virus on. Unfortunately we had a room at the back which overlooked the car park so not brilliant also very noisy as this is near... More

Mum and I stayed for 5 days in this hotel, for the 2nd time. The staff were lovely and could not do more to make our stay more comfortable, the trips take you through Scotland's finest scenery. The meals are served promptly and are hot, extremely filling with a few choices. The room was very comfortable, with a fabulous view... More
