This place is fine for a quick stopover in Oban.Rooms are clean and spacious but noisy.You can hear people walking around and chatting in other rooms.Also the smell from the restaurant is prevalent in the rooms and corridors. There is a lot of street noise as well.However it's a decent room for the price.Breakfast is a bit spartan.The cooked food... More

Very modern, cosy and spotlessly clean room with a fantastic bath and shower. Breakfast was excellent and the price was great, ideally located too and with convenient offroad parking. Wifi didn't work at all but not a particularly big issue and the staff were helpful and very friendly

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights whilst in Oban on a business trip. The reception staff were very welcoming. My room was at the top of the hotel so a wee climb up the stairs but well worth the effort. Spotlessly clean, modern and good quality fittings with a smashing big shower. Obviously recently refurbished to a high... More

Very dated hotel on busy street. Limited on site parking. Restaurant has "cowboy" theme and subpar food. My husband and another male guest met in the stairwell and discovered they were both concerned about the hotel's fire safety!

As previous reviews have stated,the hotel has undergone extensive refurbishment internally;the external work is continuing. Our room was stylish,immaculate and had all that we required.Every member of staff we met was helpful and professional and attended to any needs quickly. Breakfast was very good. Ok ,one or two things could be improved but you could say that of most meals.... More
