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

The hotel lacks curb appeal but this is made up when entering the room. Rooms are of a good modern standard and clean. We did miss tea and coffee facilities (but complementary bottled water is provided) and the modern shower head was inefficient. The hotel is in a good position with the train station and ferry port within 10 minute... More

A good location with parking in Oban is hard to find. On arrival we were impressed until one of our two rooms was unmade up - this was swapped immediately. The rooms were ok but could do with a bit of care over properly fitting doors, sticking down wallpaper, finding a TV remote... The bottom of the main stairs has... More

Terrible showers, no tea or coffee making facilities in room. Other than that ok. Rooms were clean and in good condition. Good location. Running out of comments to make, this is what is known as "padding" I believe.

Central location is good and the room was OK, except that when we arrived there were no tea and coffee making facilities, which had been advertised when we made the booking. When we queried the absence of kettle etc and said "it's shown on Booking.com as having these facilities" we were just told "well, we don't". So we were particularly... More

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
