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...

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

This is a special hotel. Yes it is old but loved it. It has a lovely friendly atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It even has a swimming pool. Jacuuzi and sauna. It is steeped in 70s nostalgia. Brill. A lovely breakfast too.

this was the shabbiest hotel I've ever seen!! Should have suspected so as soon as I saw the reception area. It didn't get any better when I was given the room key, it looked like the 1950's and the pillows and bed sheets well there was no way i was staying in that room. We were offered another room with...

Crates used to get in the jacuzzi...tiles off the walls...mildew staining...no working light in changing area...pull cord for shower....dank & dismill! How this passes... More

Booked in for one night on our way to Coll. Thankfully it was only one night, I had read the reviews but with having two dogs the choice in Oban is limited. It was not as bad as others had posted. It was clean and did not smell and the staff are really very pleasant but the décor does need... More

staff were friendly, once I got past the smoking pool players cluttering the entrance, the rooms don't seem to have changed since I was last there thirty years ago! Wasn't great then but needs shutting down for a full refurb and change of policy now.
