Stayed in the hotel for 1 night with my wife on our visit to Oban. Room was a spring saver deal and so the value was excellent. Absolutely no problems with the room (314). Clean and tidy with bottle of house wine on arrival. Bed was comfortable although I could have done with bringing some pillows with me as the... More

This hotel is throwback to when people traveled principally by rail, a big station hotel type. But it is spacious and has its own persona. The only gripe I have with it is that there is no car parking at all. It is right opposite the railway station and there is a big car park there t £3 per night.... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Caledonian last weekend, other reviews have said the hotel is looking a bit tired, to be fair its an old hotel but our room was clean and had a great view over the bay, all the staff we met were nice and we had the best breakfast I've had in a hotel for a long... More

Can't complain too much because we got a really good last minute deal but our room was awful. Clean but fairly utilitarian. Number 108 is at rear of hotel directly above very noisy road. Single glazed window was inadequate to block out any of the traffic noise. The window was also filthy - not that there was anything to see... More

I had received a gift voucher from my work for my 15 years service and chose the Dinner, Bed and Breakfast Offer at The Caledonian in Oban. We added an additional night which we actually got at a reasonable price. I will point out the good things 1st. The location is great and the entrance has recently been refurbished. The... More

My wife and I along with our 20 month old daughter stayed on Easter Sunday and Easer Monday. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were inadequate. I asked for 2 more each but was told that there were only 3 spares in the hotel. Neck ache was the end result. The room decor is tired but clean. Shower room... More

My wife enjoyed a very nice stay at the Oban Caledonian hotel. The hotel was a bit tired but as many before have said the staff were incredibly helpful and couldn't do enough for us, which more than compensated for this. I'd also like to add that the food was really good having eaten breakfast there twice and one evening... More

My wife and I stayed here 8th April for one night on a 'special offer' which included Bed and Full Breakfast with dinner and a bottle of wine! We were greeted at the reception and got checked in at 2pm. The stair carpet was worn but hardly threadbare as in other reviews. It's an old hotel with lots of character... More

Arrived earlier than check in and the receptionist offered to take our bags, explained we could use the lounge if we wanted and we had a pre stay offer for a discount and a free drink.Our room was at the end of the corridor, on the corner. It was spacious, sunny and tastefully decorated with a large, spotlessly clean bathroom.... More
