“Yet again a fantastic stay!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

These apartments are a wonderful place to get away from it all whilst still being int he heart of the town. The views from the windows are just amazing. We came for our second stay here and couldn't fault anything. Clean, well laid out and equipped with a lovley new freeview tv (although we often didn't watch it as we were too busy watching the life outside the window!) Boats and yachts coming and going all day besides the ferries. So much to do here too and Karrera is only a very short boat ride away with Mull not much further. It's a wonderful place to relax in and the owners / staff can't be more friendly and helpful. Last year i commented that the bed was a bit hard and this year there was a topper on the bed which made it so much more comfortable. We will certainly be back if we can.

Room Tip: first floor great for the views both visits so i should think the other floors will be just as good.

Good Quality appartments, quiet, clean, well-equipped. Great views over the harbour and as far as the eye can see. Very friendly staff. Possible improvement (to improve already excellent holiday experience!): provide internet in the appartments.
The weather during our one week's stay was mixed from absolutely awful to quite good. The absolutely awful weather day was spent in the appartment with the Sunday papers. The quality of the appartment made this an enjoyable day (especially the views over the comings and goings in the harbour).

The apartment I booked had undergone an upgrade since my visit last year with new furniture in the lounge area adding to the already excellent facilities. There really is everything you need here for a self catering holiday and of course the views over Oban Bay make this a wonderful location for a holiday.
I opt for the apartment where the price included towels and electricity and I would recommend this to save the hassle of feeding meters, and bringing your own towels.
I would avoid the ground floor apartments unless you like looking at the bonnets of cars in the car park, and the apartments are on one of the two main roads out of Oban and can be busy.
That said these are first class, well appointed apartments and for me THE place to stay in Oban, I would recommend them without hesitation.
Locally there are great fish and chip shops,the Cuan Mor restaurant is a must visit,and if you like shellfish the shed near the ferry terminal serves just the most wonderful seafood.

it's two years since we visited Esplanade Court, and there are significant improvements in some facilities there, in particular, dvd playing freeview tvs. The flat was in very good order, and well set out. It's not a "big city boutique atmosphere" in these little flats, but this is Oban.
It's easy to self-cater when there are "farmfoods" and an off-license and all the fish and chip shops of George St just out the back door.

Room Tip: higher the better but units above the ground floor have great views

Views to die for, even when it was raining! Excellent location, and accommodation. Only down side was the advertised wifi could not be accessed from the block we were in, you had to go next door!

Well maintained and spotless with everything you need to make your holiday stay enjoyable. Mum said she would have been happy sitting at the window all day just watching the activity in the harbour including the seaplane. Near to all the shops and restaurants but with amazing views, unbeatable.

  • Liked — Spotless flat with all you could need to hand
  • Disliked — Having to leave
