This was our second visit, as a group of 5 adults, to The Oban, and our stay was just as good, if not better. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable with sea views, and the breakfast was excellent. We can highly recommend this hotel.

Had such an enjoyable stay that hopefully will return in the future. The room well appointed & comfortable. The staff were at all times extremely polite & helpful. The location ideal for exploring the town, just a 10 minute walk to centre.Will recommend to others.
