Although the location was good, it was terrible value for money. The room was old and dated with old bedspreads and horrible carpet, frayed and dirty, torn around the radiator. The sink was in the bedroom, a long way from the bathroom. No money has been spent here in years!! There were dirty dishes constantly in the corridor and the... More

There really is no excuse for the level of shabbiness of this establishment. The reception was smelly and tired, with the working energy saving fluorescent light bulbs (of which I would say there were 70%) at the lowest possible wattage casting a dim, sickly glow. The banister wobbled and had been 'fixed' with unpainted poly filler which wasn't successful. This... More

Was a bit dubious about staying in this hotel after reading reviews on trip advisor. But glad to say as my husband had booked it gave it a try, so glad we did. Have to agree the decor is dated, but think this added to the character of the place (although it could do with a bit of a lick... More

Quaint,Quirky with friendly staff,great location with majestic views.Hotel snobs beware if you want 5* go elsewhere and pay 5*.Breakfast nice, hot and served timeously,hotel is dated but this adds to its uniqueness. I would definitely recommend a front sea view room.We will be back next year.Thankyou to all staff who looked after us.

Great location and friendly staff who kept our bags safe from 11am as checkin wasn't till 3pm that day. However when we tried to checkin at 3pm our room was not ready and we were asked to wait at the seats in the foyer while they cleaned our room. We waited a little over a hour and my boyfriend went...

Reception are smells, on check in your asked to pay up front (to stop you doing a runner when you see the room) Our room cost £88 for the night The hotel looks like it hasn't had anything done since the fifties, the room...

A great location if you want to stay in Oban, right on the seafront next to the cathedral and just a few minutes walk from the harbour and town. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the rooms clean with comfortable beds although the decor was a little tired. Breakfast was very good.

This was our first stay at this hotel. First impressions were of friendly helpful staff upon arrival and during our stay. The view from the Hotel, especially of Oban Bay was fantastic. This hotel is situated in a great location and is only 5 minutes walk from all the shops, restaurants etc. The hotel clearly requires renovations, especially with the... More
