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.

The double room so small and very cold. it has that old fashion overhead heat that one has to press every 5 minutes, radiator although on full blast did not help. Bathroom not very clean, no toiletries (the website says... More

This was the most disgusting B&B I've ever been in!!!! We obviously didn't do our research or we would have never wasted the money!!! It smelled horrific and was freezing cold!!!! Our bedding was absolutely filthy and covered in black dog hairs. They did change it for us but wish I didn't have to witness it because the pillows under... More

When we arrived the entrance foyer had a leaking roof and by the next morning the bar had a leaking roof along with the dining room which had its own waterfall and we were informed that they had just spent £21,000 having the roof repaired a short while ago. Very nice old oak staircase that passed a huge glass cabinet... More

We stayed in the hotel over the new year break and agree with fellow reviewers that the hotel desperately needs updated although rooms are comfortable and clean. We stayed 3 nights from 30th dec to 2nd jan at a cost of £220 which we found expensive considering the dated rooms, decor ect. In addition to this the pool and sauna... More
