We stayed for three nights as part of a two-centre holiday. The hotel location is ideal if arriving by train or ferry as it is about 2 minutes walk from either. Check in was pre-arranged and very quick. Our room was fairly plain but adequate. We were at the rear of the hotel, and the main road through the town... More

Stayed here over a weekend in August 2014. The hotel is a nice building but very worn out and needs a lot of work. Good points: The guy on reception on arrival was very nice, helpful etc. Nice view out the front looking over the harbour. Generally pretty clean apart from first point below... Bad points: The pillows were absolutely... More

Stayed for three nights as part of a tour. Check in was speedy and the room was clean and tidy. The bathroom seemed to have been refurbished recently but lacked finishing touches - a small shelf in the shower to put shower gel/shampoo on for instance. The small sash window appeared to be kept open by a screw. The food... More

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

My wife was concerned about the negative reviews prior to our arrival, but was very happily surprised with our overall experience at the Caledonian. 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
