Pleasantly furnished room on first floor appeared at first to have wonderful amenities, with an HD television & a Sky box entertainment system, free wifi and modern fitments in the bathroom - but sadly none of these facilities lived up to expectation. The TV remote didn't work properly, there were no Sky TV channels available and the wifi simply didn't... More

Having been let down by another establishment in Oban we were desperately seeking a one-night stay (and shelter from a downpour) at 6 o'clock in the evening. I dashed in, quickly explained the circumstances and asked if they had a double en-suite room available - oh and could I please take a look at the room before deciding? No problem... More

Have stayed at this hotel a number of times now so think it's about time it was review. Hotel is in a great location within reach of most things in Oban probably most importantly the ferry terminal. When you arrive you can see the Steakhouse restaurant dwarfs the hotel and is clearly their number one priority. Anyway when you arrive... More

The one good thing about this hotel is its central location, a short walk from the ferry terminal; that's all! Having arrived we went to the bar for a drink but told that we could not eat as the tables were reserved for diners; only two tables out of 25 were occupied! We were shown to a dingy side room...

Oban has some expensive chain hotels on the water front but the Rowantree is a few streets back in the centre of town at very reasonable rates. The hotel is clean well serviced and has a restaurant on the ground floor. It is much closer to all the attractions and has free parking at the rear of the hotel. The... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly, the room was comfortable and clean.Our room was at the front of the hotel and we wondered if we would be annoyed by the traffic noise but it was hardly noticeable. The breakfast was excellent and the staff couldn't do enough for us, we would recommend this hotel and we will be back... More
