Within a few minutes walk if the town quays and fantastic views this hotel has had better days. Everything creaked; but it didn't matter. My room was spotlessly clean but everything including the taps were coming to the end of their life. The room at some point had a shower and toilet added. It all worked but the shower arrangement...

Fantastic 5 day, 4 night tour at the Scottish Highlands. I was part of a group of visually impaired/blind people. Our coach driver/guide, Stuart, was fantastic. Worth his weight in shortbread. The Alexandra Hotel its self was clean, warm and situated in a quite corner of Oban town. The staff at the hotel, especially Alicia, who looked after my room... More

The hotel is welcoming and in a lovely position along the water, the decor in the public areas is good - we had a first floor sea view room which was clean and had all the required bits and bobs. The floorboards were a bit creaky but it is an old building- we just got used to walking around them... More

Lovely clean hotel with views looking over Oban Bay. Good choice of food with very friendly staff. Although all, including the manager, are foreign I didn't feel there was much of a language barrier and they were willing to do anything for you. There is an onsite bar and entertainment each night, the bar staff remember everyone and what they... More
