This review is based on the fact that we paid £148 for 2 nights (Saturday & Sunday) bed and breakfast so it's all about value for money. Yes the fittings and furniture are very very old and the carpets are worn in some places but it's clean and comfortable. Our room (26) didn't have a shower which was a disappointment.... More

The people at The Lancaster were very welcoming even BEFORE the start, when we emailed about bringing our dog. On arrival with the aforementioned dog, we were offered a free upgrade, as there was a BIGGER ROOM available (& we had the dog!) Yes, the place is "old fashioned" but that adds to its character. If you want the ritz,... More

Look behind the faded veneer of this hotel and you will find clean old fashioned comfort, a friendly and helpful staff team, a wide choice of foods on the breakfast menu, a well stocked bar and dogs are made VERY welcome. Yes, the rooms could do with a fresh lick of paint but put that aside. I had wi-fi in... More

I agree with all the other reviewers, really needs UPDATING. Bedroom cold and small, staff were helpful and friendly. Stairs were steep and the fire door at the top of the stairs was in my opinion dangerous. Bed was so hard I had bad hips the next day and was in pain walking. Pool and spa weren't open and hadn't...

Where do you start... a lovely welcome and the bed linen looked clean and white but then the real life "FAULTY TOWERS" begins. Some of the oldest, battered furniture i have ever seen still in use. A lovely vanity unit with a manky mirror. Sliding door to a toilet which dripped noisily all night and shower with odd left over... More

Pleasantly surprised by the location, we asked for a room with a sea view and got it. Loved the retro décor and the history attached to the building. Staff fantastic, I needed an email printed from a tablet, no probs. Breakfast excellent, evening meal we had, could have been better, but you get what you pay for. I wasn't expecting... More

Stayed here for a night in June 2014 with friends. Didn't realise hotels like this still existed! Not incredibly cheap but really not very nice. I'd recommend anywhere else in Oban really - even the harbour looked attractive. The only plus I can think of was the plentiful parking.
