We stayed at the Rowantree Hotel for one night in June. The reception was warm and friendly. The initial impression of the hotel is very good and modern. The staircase leading to the accommodation floors is of a very contemporary design, which then lead you nicely to the modern rooms. The bedrooms are again, very modern in design, comfortable beds,...

The Rowantree has recently been refurbished and the room was clean and comfortable. There were two chairs and a small table which makes it a comfortable place to relax without having to prop yourself up on the bed. The windows were triple glazed and the road noise was minimal. The bathroom is new and well designed however the shower was... More

This hotel is clean and tidy with a steakhouse attached and a nice snug bar as well. Breakfasts were good and staff friendly and hotel is in a good position in the town. Only gripe is that the wifi connection is hit or miss and couldn't get it at all in my room at all but enjoyed my stay and... More

I had originally booked another hotel in Oban, but they were overbooked, so they put me at the Rowantree instead. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the price was much cheaper than the original hotel. The service was very good and the food in the restaurant was also very good. Try the stick toffee pudding for dessert. All in... More

A clean and functional room, king-size bed, good service and a good continental breakfast catering for early starters. Although it is not right in the heart of Oban, it is just 2-3 blocks up a bit. A big plus is that it has customer parking behind the hotel. Unfortunately, the rooms are not soundproofed and one hears walking, talking, TV... More

Rooms were good sized, clean and tidy. The hotel is well located, everything is within walking distance. However, it was very noisy, breakfast had limited options and the staff seemed not to care at all. Would probably not recommend it.

Not bad location but taxi needed if you arrive by train with luggage. Friendly welcome and was helped with bags to my room as there isn't a lift. Room is fine, basic type of furniture, comfy bed, very clean. Was only staying one night so all fine.... Downside is it has a steakhouse downstairs and the smell of stale cooking... More

Upon arrival in Oban we were confused to of where we were to go (typical me not looking it up first!) But when we found it we were very very impressed. We were welcomed at reception by a very friendly guy and promptly given our key. The room was immaculate and the bed was so comfy. My only complaint would... More

Good position right in the centre of Oban on a very busy main road. Spotless clean room, albeit a little small with not a lot of clothes space, obviously newly furnished, with friendly staff. Just three little downsides, the car parking is rather hit and miss, only small and gets rather crowded, even though the hotel wasn't very busy whilst... More
