Lovely staff but awful accommodation. The room looked like a bad 1970s b&b and I suspect that the bed was that old too. Carpet in the toilet which smelled disgusting, velvet curtains thick with dust and a bedspread which Iooked and smelled unclean.

We have never consider ourselves fussy guests but Room 27 took first prize for sheer tat! - tucked at the back of building with high level windows providing a view over the rear flat roof. The shower facility comprised a rubber hosing attachment to the taps. The TV was incorrectly tuned in terms of contrast etc and we suspect it... More

We are a couple who love to stay in Oban at least twice a year. First time we've used this hotel and wont be returning. Stayed in room 22, very dated, marks on carpet, chunks missing from furniture, shower too short, we had to bend down to get under it (we did have a good laugh about it though! ).... More

After seeing the rooms we considered trying for a refund and moving on but Oban is a nice town, lovely harbour and walking. This is a hotel begging for an update. My room had an old cracked sink right beside the bed, I could barely see out of the window and the burgundy curtains were grey with dust. The metal... More

Lovely friendly staff but that is it. This hotel has not been updated since the 70's thankfully we only stayed one night so we found it funny. Our room was at the back of the hotel with a an awful view dirty curtains uncomfortable bed weird electrical gadgets bolted to the wall. I couldn't use the shower it looked like... More

Room 24. I agree with many of the opinions and that this is a friendly hotel but needs updating and in particular my room 24 had been partially re plastered due to a roof leak but not redecorated. View from window brilliant though.

The staff were friendly, but this hotel had allready seen better days. We booked by booking.com. Happy we arrived very early in the afternoon - the only hotel computer was broken since days, they didn't get the reservation. As we showed them our confirmation email, we got the very last free room, number 26. After passing several fire-doors and stairstep,... More

Although the staff were very friendly the hotel itself has seen better days. My single room was cramped, the chair had several deep stains and there was rust on the hand basin and metal framed table. The price was £40 bed and breakfast which is reasonable for Oban but I suspect I would have done better elsewhere in the town.... More

Stayed at the Lancaster last weekend, and while I agree it is a bit dated, could not find fault with it, apart from the fact that when we had breaklfast on the second day, it was a bit pushed for space between tables. We asked for a continental breakfast on the first morning, as we were going out early, and... More
