My girlfriend and I booked a deal for this hotel through 5pm.com. The deal consisted of dinner (with bottle of wine), bed and breakfast, a cake and tea/coffee on arrival, a pre-dinner cocktail, and an after dinner drink. Due to severe weather conditions on the drive up - 3-4 inches of snow - and skidding onto the other side of... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel for two days during the festive period. The hotel was well located; being only a 30 second walk from the train station. The room was dated, but clean. The bed was comfortable and the room had decent amenities, tea, coffee ect. Upon arrival, our room lock was broken, but this was fixed... More

Food was amazing with a lot of choice over the... More

Good hotel in the whole. Got character. Nice room and pretty good service. Had our daughter which was fine. Good was average. Would go back. Possibly need to serving staff. We had a good break and hotel is ideally located. One slight issue could be parking.

I stayed on Valentine's night and got a great deal on the rate. Champers and chocs were reasonable as was dinner. Breakfast was great and included in the rate. Only negative was the bar late on. Faffing about at reception to get drinks. Minimal staff and seemed a bit like a hassle for the guy who was cleaning the floors.... More

We stayed two nights for our honeymoon in the Caledonian Hotel in Oban and were very impressed. We got a lovely welcome from the young lady on reception when we arrived, and were given the best room in the hotel, room 110. It was the size of an average flat with a perfect view over the bay and like the... More

The bars and reception area have been refurbished over the last few years to good effect. Good place to meet up. Above that level there remains works to do, with noticably threadbare carpets on the stairs and worn crumbly sink plugs make for a less than ideal start. But do not let that dissuade. Great location, kind and efficient staff,... More

Dear HelixAgencies Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor. You raised some very valid points with regard to the work that needs done in the Hotel, such as replacing the stair carpet and refurbishing the rooms. As you may be aware the past year has seen a change in management companies for the Oban Caledonian Hotel, which has... More

My partner and I have just returned from a two night stay at the Caledonia Hotel, Oban. Although the hotel was 'tired', our room had fantastic views of Oban Harbour and Islands. We also had a jacuzzi bath which was very relaxing. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to others if there is deal... More

So glad we chose this place. A real taste of the glory days. Easy to imagine this hotel in its heyday. Period furniture, chandeliers, reminders everywhere of the sumptuous era of steam trains and paddle steamers. Fantastic spacious room (218) with FIVE windows and brilliant views on all sides over the harbour, and down the main street . The staff... More
