4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at The Queens on a short overnight visit to Oban. We paid a wee bit extra for a deluxe bay view room and I have to say it was worth every penny! The large window with armchairs overlooking the bay was just bliss. The hotel itself is very "traditional" and not usually the kind of place we'd stay... More

Layout of the hotel seemed reminiscent of a rabbit warren. Bedroom was small with a ground floor view at the blank back of a garage (and that was despite climbing a flight of stairs to get there!). Bed uncomfortable, walls thin and was awake from 6am due to voices and footsteps from above. Breakfast was very tasty though - unusually... More

We stayed here for one night and it was excellent. We had rooms in the original hotel, at the front. My parents are in their late 80s and had a lovely room with views over the bay. There was no lift to the front rooms but the staff were very helpful with the luggage. We also had a lovely room... More

This place is overpriced for what you get and I would consider it a 3 star hotel. There is no lift until you take your bags up a flight of stairs. We had to walk through 5 doors with our luggage to get to our room which was very annoying. The bed was very uncomfortable and we did not get... More

Great location in Oban overlooking the sea. Hotel is a little dated but if you not overly fussy & don't expect it to be 5 star it's worth a visit. It's clean & staff are very friendly. Lift is a little noisy if you a light sleeper it might not be for you.

Where do I start?? First of all we rented the suite for 5 nights. There are only 2 of them so book early. Our suite was beautiful and clean and just fresh looking. We had the best sea view (ocean front) looking straight out to the water and to the left you can see Oban (very close). There are lots... More

Pet friendly? Not really. No water, no bowl to put water in. Room one of the furthest away from the exit door/front door, so taking dog out for the obvious required good planning. Room tiny, looking out onto an area of weeds, couple of patches in room where wallpaper coming off wall - could be condensation/mould. The food in the... More

Only stayed for two nights, busy schedule. But as this was Wedding Anniversary time chose to select a suite. Well worth the extra money for constantly changing views and light over harbour and Kerrera. Beds were divine! Although we never actually ate a proper meal except for one top notch breakfast. Staff arranged early, early morning brekky before sea trip,... More
