We decided to stay in Oban over night rather than leave Glasgow at 'stupid' o'clock to catch the ferry at 7.00am and spend the first day of our holidays walking around like zombies due to lack of sleep. After lots of researching we chose The Queens based on price and the reviews. All staff were very friendly and efficient. The... More

We spent a single night here while we toured Oban and the Oban Distillery. The hotel was nicely appointed and the staff friendly and helpful. We chose to have dinner at the hotel and experienced one of the best diners we have had.

Had a great weekend in Oban at this hotel. Staff quiet but very friendly, room was fabulous, we had two big loung chairs set so that we could look out the bay windows and see the world (and boats) go by.

We were supposed to sail to the Isle of Mull but unfortunately the weather did not permit us to take the ferry as all departures were cancelled that day. So we ended up booking this hotel late in the afternoon at a reasonable rate for a bed and breakfast. The rooms were clean and simply furnished. Our room included a... More

Very nicely appointed hotel, warm and welcoming with excellent jaccuzi baths.The only problem was the shower mixer. Full pressure on hot and cold but no pressure at ambient temperatures. Did not dine here but breakfasts were excellent.
