Bad electrics, light not working, shower in a cupboard with no light, small room full of furniture! No toiletries, no biscuits! Gloomy outlook to back of hotel! Receptionist very abrupt. If you wished to use the swimming pool you had to ask for a key!

Enjoyed my stay here for two nights as was found to Staffa. My single room was fine clean and had good en suite with shower. Breakfast was the highlight as dining room has superb view of Oban waterfront. Porridge and full breakfast were excellent as was the service. As the hotel is of the old type sound proofing is not...

I had read the reviews so knew what I was coming to. The hotel is a lovely walk along the seafront, about 10 minutes from the train station. The girl on reception was really friendly and my room was clean and had everything in it that you could need. It was certainly tired and dated but I can live with... More

I guess the only way this place survives is on price. Aside from this I can think of no good reason to stay here - yet it is full. A successful business model of a sort. Flock wallpaper, stained paintwork, shower and basin that would have looked dated in the 70s. While the swimming pool water is warm and clean... More

We stayed for two nights at the Lancaster. It is ideally situated on the front at Oban. It is a pleasant walk along to the shops and restaurants and also the hotel food is good if you don't want to walk out. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is good with good choice as well as full Scottish cooked... More

In a good position at the side of Oban Bay this hotel is best described as clean, functional and well positioned. Best Tip: Book your accommodation for Oban in advance to get better choice at the lower price range. The young gentleman called Stewart (serving breakfast) is one of the best examples of excellent Customer Service I have seen in... More

Just come back from a stay in the Lancaster hotel. The room we were first given room 12 the room was very clean but small to say the least a single bed in there for a single occupant is probably the best in that room. The tv was old and on a free view box and shook while you watched... More

Stayed at the lancaster with my hubby for the weekend and had an amazing time. Great staff who made us feel welcome from start to finish. Local music was playing on the Friday night which my hubby joined in with (he plays guitar). We never had time to make use of the swimming pool as our weekend was jam packed... More

The Lancaster could be a lovely hotel with an input of capital to update its dated decor and features. The room (an expensive sea view room) was barely acceptable, with a sink right next to the window. The shower was dirty, and we had to clean it before use. The room was not really big enough for the furniture in... More
