stayed at the Alexandra Hotel with my sister on a Highland Heritage coach tour. We asked for a superior twin room and this proved to be excellent with seating in a bay window and a sea view. The trip up to Oban was a bit long so if you plan doing this take plenty of food and drink unless you...

Great location! We went in July this year. After a long trip we made our own arrangements every day - Oban, Mull, Iona, Staff, seal colony - all wonderful. As for Highland Heritage: too many rules and we were treated like children. Met at the door by staff with hand sprays for "bacteria" (actually Norro virus as there was an...

I had a holiday here in September and would certainly return here. It was only my 2nd coach holiday alone since my husband passed away. I expected a single room to be overlooking the kitchens but had a pleasant room which looked across to the apartments - I didn't expect a sea view ! The shower room was very good,...

Went to Oban unbooked and settled on the YMCA for the night which was ok. In the event we had to spend another night in Oban but the YM was fully booked so had to find an alternative.

The hotel and staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean, the food bland but quite acceptable. The journey from Manchester took 12 hours and we had to change buses halfway through the journey. The use of handgel was continuous: on entering the coach, on entering the hotel, on entering the dining room. The Manager claimed that this was...

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...
