I would like to thank the staff and the manager at the Ranald Hotel after we had to cancel our stay due to COVID 19 restrictions. After having a nightmare with Booking.com who would not answer my complaint, the Ranald Hotel took it upon themselves to refund us our full costs for the trip. I can’t thank you enough and will definitely be visiting you in 2021. Thanks again. Rosemary Evans

Me and my partner took a drive to Oban. Last minute decided to book a hotel The Ranald Hotel & apartments became the top choice as we sat up at the McCaigs Tower. On arrival due to covid reduced hours we had to call the number provided on door at reception the lovely gentlemen arrived soon as he can was very friendly and welcoming he went over our details and gave us leaflet to fill out for breakfast the following day there was a list of options to chose from which would be delivered to your door at your chosen time. The gentleman asked us if we needed anything gave us direction to our room and allowed us to settle in and inspect the room before coming to ensure we had everything we needed. This stay was very pleasant and enjoyable the hotel is very cozy and welcoming and will be visiting again soon once COVID-19 restrictions have been lowered thank you very much for such welcoming stay

We visited this hotel for 2 nights whilst on a trip up north. There is no hotel parking however there is parking about 100 metres along the road at a community centre where you can park for 24 hours for £5. The location of the hotel is very good with 3 or 4 food shops within walking distance and also plenty of bars and restaurants near by. We stayed in a standard double room which was quite pleasant. A good size, clean with a great shower and a varied selection of teas/coffee/hot chocolate. One downside to the room was that you could hear other guests whilst they were in the hall on way to and from rooms. As we stayed for 2 nights we were expecting room to be serviced which it wasn't im sure this was propably down to COVID however wasn't explained to us and we had to go down to reception and ask twice for new towels. The continental breakfast was tasty, delivered to your door at a selected time and was in packaging which is handy if you are on the go. All in all it was an enjoyable trip and we would stay here again.

This is the second time we have stayed here. This break was carried over from end March due to coronavirus. It’s a great location and really friendly staff. Apart from check in and out we had no reason to see anyone. We were give a tick sheet on check in to pick breakfasts for the 2 days and tray was delivered to your room at your requested time. Will not hesitate to stay here next time we are back in oban
