Arrived and was greeted well and shown to our rooms. The 4 rooms we booked were all OK 3 with views over the marina. Then came dinner. Waitress could not tell the difference between a scallop and a bowl of musles, she insisted that we were wrong and she was right. A starter of scallops and black pudding sounded nice.... More

A wooden hut in a carpark. Welcome to your room... Check-in is in the restaurant. That bit worked. Then you are shown the room. A modern key card hotel style door lock, is non functional. But the cheap Yale lock above it works, and is used instead. The door rattled in the wind - But can be wedged shut with... More

Arrived as a hotel guest, checked in and made a dinner reservation as they suggested. Staff were not particularly welcoming and, actually, seemed somehow weird. Turned up for dinner and was seated. After ordering an annoyed and frantic chef appeared and told us we had not booked a table and said there would be a delay with the food. We... More

Arrived to find no booking registered and no rooms booked,one member of staff went out of their way to get us accommodation in Oban but after long journey very upsetting to find you do not have room. Get the impression owners working hard to make place work but struggle to get good staff. If you book onyour own ie not... More

Visited twice now and have had the nicest service we've had in a long time, very accommodating and helpful, food was excellent and was even brought out by the chef, it was so nice to speak to the person who'd just cooked your meal and find out about all the local ingredients! Lovely view of the marina too, perfect for... More

We were travelling to The Isle of Coll recently to stay with friends and booked a night here. We arrived around 8.45pm and went to check in. There was someone behind the bar and 2 customers at the bar. We were ignored for quite some time but then eventually she came over. There were no smiles or warm welcomes but... More

Good standard of accommodation here. Really friendly helpful staff and a great breakfast. Nicely set overlooking a marina a few kms. out of Oban, we could have stayed longer if not for the nasty weather. Watch out for the bedside tables that are set out from the wall (because of sloping ceiling). This means that my belongings fell down the... More
