We had a lovely stay here at this dog friendly and very people friendly hotel! Rooms are basic, but that is fine, food is excellent and location great. The staff were lovely and helpful, will stay here again, I hope.

A great welcome awaits you here. The rooms are dog friendly, in chalets around the car park so not very pretty but the service and friendliness plus the standard of food makes up for any lack of luxury in the rooms. The rooms are big with enquire shower and bath. A light bulb was broken when we arrived and the... More

Did not stay but ate here for last two nights as had moored our boat at Dunstaffnage. Food was very tasty but.......oh dear.....the service! Very young staff and far too few of them with little or no training (apart from boss / manager). Will quickly lose customers unless the service end of the business improves. FAR TOO FEW staff!

Great location ,view to die for. Very poor service , food poor , Staff complained of tiredness frequently. Overall feeling of an amateur set up. Rooms were ok fairly comfortable although a bit musty smelling. would return to Oban but not this hotel.

I would highly recommend the wide mouthed frog if you're looking for a break in the Oban area. It is situated just out of Oban approx 5 minutes drive. The staff are warm and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The cooked breakfast was lovely, and the food in the evening was too, everything is cooked using fresh ingredients, and... More

I notice that this place is not listed as a restaurant, only as a hotel. I'm not surprised. The food was very poor, the service was just as bad. The only person serving was the owner and she was doing all the table service and manning the bar. I suspect there was only 1 person in the kitchen too (... More

We loved the room and its design, clean and tidy, enjoyed the heated loo floor. The resturant is very nice and food was yami; the owner is so pleasant to talk to, if you... More

We booked our family over the easter weekend. The family room was a good size and clean and comfortable. Beautiful surroundings and the views at breakfast were amazing. A great value place to stay in a marina setting, nice walks and 5 min drive to Oban. Breakfast is good, it's basic but just what you need to start your day.... More

Really clean, breakfast cooked to order and tasty. As someone who stays in hotels for business this is the best bed I have ever slept in and the room was better than any of the big named chains. Staying in or around Oban stay here.
