Stayed here for a week as we were travelling to the islands. Hotel room basic but comfy,newly refurbished bathroom. The only downside was no fans or airconditioning. Breakfast was plenty and varied. Great town for seafood especially the fresh crab,lobster and langoustine

On our arrival, David was very pleasant when we booked in.The internal decor was fresh and clean and our room was bright and spacious. The restaurant menu was varied and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The... More

We stayed here in January but having only recently started to leave reviews on Tripadvisor feel I wish to add some positive input. The Caledonian is an old building in a brilliant location, and yes, it has quirks and faults but we liked those as they are to be expected in places of such character. We had a lovely double... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our group bus tour of Scotland with Insight Vacations in August 2014. I agree with many of the recent reviewers that the hotel is in a great location, but is worn out and in desperate need of refurbishing and updating. The windows in our room were extremely drafty and you could hear all... More

Overlooking the bay! Great staff and good food! The shower is too small though, you kinda have to make your way to fit in it! A lot of things around the hotel to see and do. It is near the train station if you are taking the train!

Let's try and find something positive to say: The Caledonian Oban is an imposing building in a perfect position overlooking the harbour and ferry terminal and to the mountains beyond. There is always something to watch. It should be the grandest hotel in the town; sadly it is not. Our stay was to be one of the highlights of our... More

Stayed at The Caledonian with our small dog Lucy and had a lovely time. Everyone went the extra mile-really comfy dog bed and water and food bowls. Plenty of space in the room, nice comfy bed for us and wonderful views across the bay to Kerrera and Mull. Great breakfast and super friendly staff who made us all feel very... More

The hotel is in an excellent location, although some in our party complained about the noise outside. The hotel has a faded charm, and we liked the little sitting area in our room, with a view over the harbour. The breakfast was average only: I would prefer to select hot food from a buffet to get the items and quantity... More
