Stayed here after a week at Tiree Music Festival,we had a lot of luggage and the bar staff couldnt have been more helpful allowing us to deposit all our belongings in the dining room which was on the ground floor and saved us taking it all up to our room. We had a wee dram in the bar then headed... More

You pay your money...you make your choice. Very reasonably priced, welcoming but a little tired. We can't fault what we got for our money though. They are dog friendly and very convenient for the town. We only stayed one night as a stop over and would return.

There were a few things that made this place great, the clean rooms and bathrooms, the quiet room as with comfortable beds, the complimentary water and WiFi, cooked breakfast that includes vegetarian options and a great area, however there were a few faults. The bathroom had no exhaust, the stale views and the stairs to up to the room. The... More

My room was disappointing an attic room with a sloping ceiling and the room was facing the ferry terminal which kept me awake at night .There is a humming noise coming from the ferry which I found very disturbing.I purchased ear plugs which helped. The place... More

Stayed there for a night having booked on line. The hotel is close to the harbour and a view of the ferry terminal which is quite nice. Hotel is not the smartest but quite good value. It is ideal for exploring the town which is quaint and interesting. The car park is a public one opposite and is £5 for... More

Being near ferry terminal was convenient but noisy. We had a hot attic room with very little air circulation. The curtains were light and the lights and constant clanging from the ferries kept us awake most of the night. We ordered a double room for £80 assuming we'd get a reasonably nice double room but it was a dorm room... More

We stayed here for the night as we were catching an early morning ferry to Mull. The kids loved Keith Richards, the dog, and were made to feel very welcome. The hotel staff were very friendly and the family room was great. We left early, so didn't get to sample the breakfast. We did have a few drinks in the... More

Unable to get last minute accommodation in Glencoe, we found ourselves in Oban and stayed at the Kelvin for two nights as a base to explore from. It is an older building (stairs only) situated opposite the Ferry Terminal. The double room was large, clean and comfortable with a roomy en suite including a bath. Good free wi-fi. We didn't...
