All the staff were nice and polite the minute we got there, the room was lovely and clean. The breakfast in the mornings were good while we were there and views were great. I would recommend the hotel to anyone that was thinking of going to oban.

This was my third short stay in in as many years and have always recommended it to friends and family on their way to the Hebrides. I booked a twin room which I was given on the third floor which was fine, apart from the bathroom which to be honest was a bit gross. I don't think in this day...

Spent four nights whilst seeing the beautiful surrounding area.The hotel is well sited for views across the harbour and bay and we were lucky enough to have a third floor room overlooking the harbour with a lounge area in the tower with windows all round. The only downside was the lift which is in desperate need of refurbishing. The buffet...

Paid an extra £10 to be upgraded to a suite and wasn't disappointed. The hotel suite was gorgeous and offered great views across the bay. First Class Scottish breakfast topped off an enjoyable stay and we will definitely go back!
