Spent a really enjoyable 3 night break at The Star during Kingussie Xmas light switch on, and what a really enjoyable weekend it was. The hotel was fairly basic but clean and comfortable and the staff were pleasant and friendly.

I have been visiting many years and miss the tea and coffee after dinner. The hotel staff are very friendly and the hotel is dog... More

I have just returned from this hotel. £59 for 2 nights stay. Great value. Food was all homemade. Staff very friendly. Hotel old fashioned but clean. You get a choice for dinner. When you book you are asked if you want room with shower or bath.

The room was clean and provided everything we needed, which was a bed, and a shower and a hairdryer, and all your typical amenities,it was clean and comfortable and fairly priced. Had a fantastic dinner just before the kitchen... More

Just recently posted a review of another hotel in Oban, and although stayed at the Star in September/October last year, although Oban hotel was dated, it was ten times better than this.

Not all rooms have showers and baths not equipped properly with grips etc. Overall shabby but greeted warmly enough. But the price would suit some travellers. We decided not to stay and move...
