Came to Oban to see QM2 . Stayed in Caledonian. Had rooms 222 and 224. FABULOUS view and value for money. Yes, decor leaves a lot to be desired with blinds at an angle , dated furniture but was clean and did what it said on the tin

Stayed at the Caledonian Hotel for 2 nights in a twin room. The decor was really nice and the room was spotless. We stayed using a deal I bought for breakfast on both days and 3 course dinner on one of the nights. Food was good and service was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful. Only downside to our... More

We visited on Sunday 24/5/2015 for bank holiday. Room disappointing, in need of new beds, carpet and re tiling of broken bathroom tiles. For lunch I eventually got to order two bowls of soup from bar area, only one member of staff serving a busy hotel. The soup was mushroom and spinach which was disgusting. The salt content made it...

My husband and I checked in last thursday for a 2 night stay. On entering the hotel we were met by the rudest, most ignorant reception staff I have ever come across. There were 2 male members of staff, 1 who was shuffling some paper in the printer and the other who was talking with another member of staff. Not... More

My husband & I booked this for one night along with another family room for his son, wife & 2 children. When I saw the threadbare hall & stairs carpet I did wonder what we had let ourselves in for. Shortly after check in we went to the lounge & ordered some food including French Toast for the kids. I... More

Fantastic view from our room, looking across the harbour towards mull, great room and reception staff helpfull and friendly, looking forward to going back in October for the weekend. Oban itself is a fantastic place and gives easy access to the islands.

my room looked as if it had not been used for a while as overall very dusty. window was filthy and did not open. no privacy - I could see the 3 folks in the office across the street and the woman in the flat - a lacy curtain would have helped - I did not want the fabric blind... More

I got a deal to stay here as a Christmas gift. When I called to book I asked if this hotel was dog friendly and specifically asked if dogs were allowed in the bar area. After being told the hotel was very dog friendly I booked in my two dogs. I explained they were medium sized and checked this was... More

I recently stayed with a group of friends. The hotel is shabby with threadbare carpets throughout the stairs and a general sense of decay. Some of the public rooms seem to have been attended to but only in a minimal and unimaginative way. The worst features were in our bedroom. There were none of the basic facilities you expect in...

We stayed here as a stopover before heading to mull. Got a deal on itison and as we've done this successfully before thought the hotel would be fab but...The Oban Caledonian is pretty awful. Check-in was very impersonable. It Hotel itself needs serious updating. Think we had the worst nights sleep ever on the bed. It felt like a trampoline... More
