The location of this hotel is perfect in my opinion as it is within walking distance to Oban town centre, but with free parking nearby and great views. The hotel is showing its age, but we didn't let this detract from our break in Oban. The hotel is the perfect base for visiting Oban and the surrounding stunning landscape. The... More

We had a room on the first floor, there is a fire exit on the corridor that leads to a lovely paved dog walk (you will need a torch at night). The hotel staff were very friendly and our dogs were allowed in the bar. Food was excellent and the room had plenty of space for my wife and myself... More

We stayed in a junior suite at this hotel on 5th July at a B&B rate of £185.00 per night. On arrival we found that another guest had parked partly across the valet parking bay which would have been the only space available to park to unload our luggage so we were faced with little alternative than to park in...

Just returned from a 2 day break with friends at this hotel. We had a lovely time and were so glad we chose this hotel. It overlooks the sea and the views from their conservatory are spectacular. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. Compliments go the chefs as the food was really delicious... More

I have been going to this hotel for over 20 years and it still gives excellent value for money. The food is beautifully presented and the 6 course taster dinner menu offers a superb choice, as does the breakfast menu. The service is excellent and the restaurant manager, who is Scottish, makes sure everyone is well served by his attentive... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We were very lucky because the weather could not have been better ! The hotel is on the bayfront and the views from the lounge and the outside terrace were just idyllic. Our room was one of the refurbished ones and was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable.The only criticism is that... More

This hotel is located in a great spot overlooking the bay, BUT it is not a resort or spa. Yes, it does offer some limited spa services, but these are minimal. You could not enjoy a better view of the bay, and the hotel is located well within walking distance of most activities, but the wait staff (many) have limited... More

I have just come home from an amazing stay at this hotel. It had the most amazing views, the room was spotlessly clean, lovely complimentary shower gel and shampoo, very friendly and helpful staff and the food was just wonderful. I loved the outdoor hottub looking out onto the bay and watching the boats coming and going was so relaxing.... More

Stayed here a number of times and this time was just as good as usual. The hotel staff are helpful and our rooms clean and modern. The decor is Harris tweed throughout. The hotel is about 5 minutes from theTown Centre and there is limited parking at the hotel so book a spot early or you have to park further... More

Stayed here on business and as always the staff were brilliant. The room was spotless and the outdoor spa tub was a great way to wake up in the morning. Also the views from the bar are breathtaking. I had dbb but the set meal in the restaurant was a little too posh for my liking, so I ate the... More
