“Best hotel in Oban”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Wow... loved everything about this hotel , it's in a perfect location just a short stroll away to the ferry and shops ... room was small but cosy and comfortable we had a ground floor room (one) with a sea view.... all staff were friendly, polite and very welcoming...
The food in the restaurant was 100% first class !!!!!
A charming and delightful hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for Sea view

Just back from a week long trip around the north and north west of Scotland and spent 3 nights in Oban at the Manor House.
Excellent location, views, staff and dining, including breakfast.
Highly recommend it.

We stayed at the Manor House Hotel early July for one night B&B as we were catching the ferry to Mull the following day. The room was very nice and had a lovely sea view. The staff were extremely friendly and very welcoming. It was only a short walk into the town and an even shorter walk/drive to the Ferry terminal which was perfect for us. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

The Manor House is in a great location for walking into the town or to the ferry and has lovely views. There is on-site parking. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable with a decent bathroom which included a face cloth (unusual in UK hotels). The breakfasts there were the best we had in Scotland, and we liked the one dinner we had there, as well.

We stayed for one night but wished we had longer. Lovely room and amazing views from the bar, staff were very friendly and knew what they were doing .. the food was very good and although a small menu it was well cooked and seasonal. Well Done ! We will return.

We loved everything about our stay here. We had breakfast and dinner both days/nights we stayed. Our room was lovely, the bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was amazingly large for a B&B! Breakfast was delicious and our dinners were just fabulous. The best part about the place is the staff - after several hours they know who you are and what room you are in. On the first night my husband asked a question about how a dish was prepared on the menu. The next afternoon as we sat in the lounge reading, he stopped in to ask us which soup OTHER than the one on the menu we would like with dinner since he remembered from the day before that we were not fans of rosemary and the soup had rosemary in it. When we got to dinner that night it was already taken care of - without another word spoken! Is it expensive? Yes. But it is worth EVERY penny and more! We could not have enjoyed our stay more! We are hoping to get back to Oban just so we can book a room and dinner at Manor House!
