The rooms photographed well, but don't be deceived - it was low quality. The bathroom was ok Where do you start when everything was bad. The curb appeal was old and dirty. Entered from the rear parking lot into a bleak dark dirty delivery hallway into the kitchen and the hotel. The receptionist was rude! There is no elevator, no... More

Our room was only £80 and it included a good breakfast. It was not the best hotel on our trip, but it was pretty good. The room was big enough, but a little tight. Both the room and the bathroom were clean and the bed was comfortable. The television was tiny. My biggest complaint were the hard floors. When the... More

This hotel,is only a few minutes walk from the promenade, and about 10 mins from the train station. Our room on the first floor was basic, with a comfortable bed, and very clean. The bathroom was compact, but ample. The only problem being that the ceiling was very badly water stained, obviously the result of a previous plumbing problem from... More

This hotel sits on top of a barbecue restaurant in the center of town. The staff of the hotel were very friendly. The room I stayed in was an ensuite with a good enough shower. Pressure was good and I was able to use the bathtub as well. Beds were nice and comfy. Cold and hot breakfast were provided (I... More

I'm sitting in the hotel room as I write this review! I'm staying two nights here and tonight is night #1 for me on my Rabbie's Iona, Mull of Skye 5 day tour. The lobby is small but very inviting and friendly. Exactly what I'd expect from a hotel in a small town. Very Scottish so no complaints here! The... More

located not too far from the main square and close to all kinds of shops. Room was actually quite nice, you could tell they had been recently updated. TV was a real pain!! You have to turn on three or more different switches to make it work. I messed around with the darn thing for over half and hour and... More

Location seemed good but is actually across the road from a very rowdy pub. Rooms okay but soulless, Wi Fi in rooms terrible, we had to sit in the restaurant downstairs for reliable connection. Staff generally friendly

A single Saturday night stay for eight people all went well here after looking at a number of Oban hotels at the £80-100 per room range. Rooms are clean comfortable and newly refurbished. Doors do slam though and the comments on showers are accurate as temperature control was difficult. No idea why they don't do room tea/coffee facilities. A kichen... More
