Rub of the mill

We went there on a beautiful Aug evening and the views are outstanding. The staff were helpful and friendly.......However the food is average & the costs are on the high side, not to mention we had to wait 40mins for our mains. Nothing bad to say, but equally (apart from the views) nothing great to... read more

Think twice if you are comming from a boat in the marina. Please expect to be treated like a second class citizen. Expect to be ignored. Like the class system in the titanic; expect to be seated far away from the windows and requests for drinks and food to not be taken. The manager is frightening if you complain. Be... More

Stayed here for two nights at height of summer season. Had nice room...spacious and excellent view over the harbour at Oban. Very clean. Got to room by going outside hotel and up steps. Meals were delicious and could be taken in the small restaurant down steps from the bar area or n the bar itself. Sat at the bar after... More

My husband and I had a lovely meal in the restaurant whilst we were berthed in the marina. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they even welcomed our puppy, we had planned to eat outside, but the midges were out in force. The food was excellent too!

A very welcoming and comfortable hotel. Dinner was good, but not exceptional and thus arguably over-priced. Staff were most pleasant and helpful.

The service here was friendly and helpful. Everything is clean, well-appointed, and the location and views are super. Unfortunately the food is super-ordinary... Soggy chips, stale bread and a Cullen skink that was inedible. What a shame, and was hoping that they just had a bad day, but it seems from other reviews that this is par for the course.

The restaurant at the Wide Mouthed Frog...very good seafood and very nice service. A little out of town, but good food at a decent price.

Decided to stop here for breakfast about 815 this morning on way to Oban as weather was glorious and Trip Advisor said it did breakfast. Unfortunately they do not serve non residents breakfast at breakfast time. They serve it from 10am until noon. They were not busy either with only 3 tables busy at that time. Presume as other reviewers... More

We attempted to have a meal here but unfortunately we found the owner/staff to be very unwelcoming and then rude/aggressive. We arrived in the marina in the afternoon and asked in the early evening if we could eat there. (They advertise that they are a hotel, bar, cafe, seafood restaurant and family bistro). They accepted a reservation at 8:30. However... More
