Stayed here on a short break holiday. The hotel itself is in desperate need of decorating throughout and has poor accessibility for disabled customers. That said the staff are friendly and accommodating. The food is ok for the price paid, breakfast tended to be rushed.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions, both alone, and with my family. It's true that it could do with a bit of money being spent on it, but overall it's a great holiday experience - lovely breakfasts (we love the porridge with cream and cinnamon sugar), good value lunches and lovely wee bar where you can sit...

Just a one night stop, to catch the early morning ferry, so left before breakfast. However, the room, in the older part of the hotel, was clean, spacious and had everything one wanted. What was particularly welcome - was the friendly restaurant staff, who found us a table, despite the fact we hadn't booked , and there were coach parties... More

Used as a billet for the RAF during the 2nd War, this hotel is badly in need of a makeover. The room allocated to us was filled with furniture that looked like it had come from a car boot sale, the plumbing was vintage (though functional) and the window frames were all but rotted away. Having said all that, this... More

Stayed for 1 night here before catching a ferry. Felt very welcome when we arrived. Room was nice but had no view (although we hadn't booked a view - so if you go always book a room with a view). Breakfast was nice. Handy location wise for restaurants and ferry. You do have to pay for parking in the day... More

Old style hotel.Our room was small but clean.We reported a couple of problems but they were fixed very quickly. The food was very good and the drinks were a bit expensive.We did not use the lift but it was very small and slow.H hotel in a nice position for getting around Oban.

Just back from a two night break from the hotel. Looks a nice building on the outside with one part very old stone and the other a 1930s Art Deco style. Upon entering up the sweeping stair (be carful as these are narrow at one side) you will arrive in an entrance area where you will find leaflets of various... More
