This has got to be the worst hotel that I have ever stayed in.If you are making a booking make sure you don't get room 24. Its a total disaster. Staff and food first class but that's a far as it goes.

The only good thing about my experience here recently was the location on the Corran Esplanade which provides lovely views. The rooms are all very tired, shabby and in need of an extensive overhaul. The spa facilities aren't great and there's a scrap involved everytime you would like a go in the hot tub. Also - having screaming kids running... More

We have not stayed in this hotel but myself and my husband visited the spa for the second time and as before we had a lovely, relaxing time. The spa is small but perfectly formed. The hot tub is great with amazing views over the bay. We had lunch in the bar which was gorgeous and huge positions. Lovely friendly... More

The images on their web site do not refect the current condition of the hotel. Same furnishing just much older and in need of repair and replacement (see images attached to this review). The toilets really need a thorough clean and overall the hotels appears to be cleaned only to a superficial level. I booked directly with the hotel but... More

The hotel has a lovely location on the sea front of Oban. Our room though was a step back in time, but not in a good way. The decor was extremely tired, with the furniture in need of updating. The bathroom was very much out of date and in desperate need to renovation. The breakfast was exceptional, a real full... More

Feel a bit mean giving this 4 stars, more of a 4.5. There were just a couple of niggles that stopped it short of a 5 star.. This very relaxing hotel is a short walk from the centre of Oban looking out over the islands. Limited parking at hotel and you have to reserve ahead but there are roadside spaces.... More

Firstly the good points: the hotel was in a good location (as the name suggests it was facing the sea) and the staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel needs a bit of money spent on it and the dark brown furniture gives the small rooms a gloomy feel. Parking (as others have pointed out) is a big problem as... More

We stayed as a family of 4 for 2 nights, we were in a family room which overlooked the laundry and bins, but was advised that all the family rooms are at the back so I suppose we wouldn't have got a better view in another room. Our bed was 2 single beds zipped together which was spacious and comfortable.... More

Great little hotel, lovely rooms, excellent food and very helpful staff. We stayed one night on couples retreat deal and floated out the next day!! Would highly recommend to couples or anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing night away. Being pet friendly and right on the beach was a bonus! Thankyou
