This was a lovely little place fronting onto the Marina with views across towards Loch Linnhe and the Isle of Mull. Unfortunately we stayed here in warm weather in a converted attic room. with the windows open the main road traffic was noticeable during the night. The room was clean, the breakfast was plentiful and the scenery stunning. After two...

I was lucky enough to discover the Frog during their end-of-season charity event. The room was warm and tidy and the food was great, but it's the welcoming vibe and party spirit I'll remember most. Everyone was working hard to make sure the guests had a great night – but that didn't mean the staff were stressed or too serious....

This place is just outside Oban and as such offers some peace and quiet, the adjoining marina makes for great views out across to Dunstaffnage castle on the headlad. The rooms are reasonably priced, clean and dog friendly. There is a bit of noise from the road but nothing that will stop you sleeping, we managed to get in last...

We spent one night here en route to Isle of Mull. It is an excellent little hotel, very comfortable with nice views of the Marina. The food was great and the staff friendly and helpful. Would probably stay here again if in the area.

On the Expedia site, they say this property is in Oban. It is not in Oban, it is five miles outside of Oban. So the only restaurant is theirs, unless you want to drive. The room we had was noisy, as it backed on to the main highway. No internet in the room more than 10 percent of the time....
