This was my first stay at this hotel , and i have to say that from the start , the service i received was excellent. Clearly employing local people on the reception desk is a winner. The room i had was situated at the rear of the hotel , and is quite a walk , and more than a few... More

The staff at the hotel are friendly and the service is good but the overall appearance of the hotel is dated and in desperate need of refurbishment. Rooms are basic and only a very limited amount of rooms have sea views

Had an over night stay in October 2014. Food was great. Room was also great. Staff were friendly and helpful and the bar which had a very relaxed atmosphere also had a fine selection of Malts. I would book a stay here again anytime I am planning to stay in Oban. Only issue was parking which is in short supply.

Good food and lovely staff. Unfortunately the conservatory and lounge were so cold we could not use either. I choose this hotel for the views but sat in our room where it was warm. Would return to this hotel and to Crerar hotels but not if they do not heat their premises. We always have winter breaks and have never... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, it was truly appreciated. I am so sorry the heating in the conservatory spoilt your stay, unfortunately, this was a very cold spell and the heaters were on, however, they were not strong enough to heat this large space. I did buy extra heaters to resolve the issue but becaue... More

This is a lovely comfortable, well situated hotel. It was very busy when we visited but found the staff welcoming, attentive and very hard working. The food is really good with plenty of choice & we were asked if we wanted a little break between courses. Our room was fine, comfortable & quiet at the back of the hotel. Will... More

I can't rate this hotel highly enough. My fiancé booked this hotel for my birthday and we were upgraded to a suite which was a wonderful surprise! The hotel is clean, the food is great and all the staff are absolutely lovely! The location is beautiful with perfect views of the bay. We'll definitely be returning here in the future!... More
