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

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

My review is driven by the good reviews previously posted, how could they have rated it so highly? I won't dwell the coach journey, it is what it is, but changing of seats to 4 rows back every day for the trips, what a nonsense! Plus going home in a grubby old coach from the border was unacceptable. Our room... More

Well what can I say....please don't part with your hard earned cash to go on the Highland Heritage trip to The Alexandra Hotel in Oban...You might hope to find leaflets and local information about the beautiful Scottish landscapes and highlights...im afraid not...However if you want information on Norovirus ..Knock yourself out...After being herded off the coach you are forced to...

HMMM, where to start; lets start with the coach. According to their website they use modern luxury coaches. No they don't, they use 10 year old coaches that are as basic as they come. No toilets, no music, no videos, no wifi and no tea or refreshments. These are buses with cloth seats instead of plastic. The driver was a... More

Obviously this is a hotel specifically for coach tours as everything is arranged around them: we travelled up from Middlesbrough as our nearest pick up point and knowing where Oban is we were not surprised at the long journey. As usual, these tours use several pick up points which results in a very long travel time. The hotel is staffed... More
