Just arrived home on Tuesday after a five night break and I could not rate Cologin highly enough! The location is fantastic, just a few miles from Oban, but in a peaceful rural location. We stayed in Chalet 5 which was nice, clean and spacious and had everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. The site itself has a pub/award winning restaurant and the homemade food was out of this world. I tried a few things on the menu but what stood out most was the Cullen Skink and the fish and chips, you could taste how fresh the fish was and it beat any chippy in Oban! The staff are very friendly and bent over backwards to please, especially the girl (I didn't catch her name) from Harris who was running the bar during the day. It was a very family/dog friendly place and there is a great uphill walk into the forest where you can enjoy amazing views, on a clear day you could see Ben Cruchan. The only thing I could fault was the weather.....but hey it is Scotland lol My partner has been working in nearby Dunbeg and I will certainly be booking up again on my next visit. If you have kids, dogs or just fancy a wee rural get away with its own pub this is the place to go and the drive to Oban is also a great part of the trip!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- One bedroom 'Outer Hebridean' chalets, two bedroom 'Inner Hebridean' lodges, Cologin Farmhouse and Cruachan Cottage are all nestled around the old farmstead at Cologin and the Barn Bar rustic bar and restaurant. Less than 3 miles from Oban with free fishing, way marked forest walks, play park and duck pond, this family owned and run self catering complex has been welcoming guests for over 35 years with many families having enjoyed holidays here for several generations. Pets are welcome and kids can be kids with plenty of space to explore and play. The lodges and chalets are all well equipped for 3 star standard, the farmhouse and Cruachan are 4 star and all properties are well maintained and decorated annually! We are not offering luxury - we are not that sort of place and never will be. You may find duck poo outside your chalet door and we don't have street lighting (great views of starry skies!) or Tarmac roads so don't come and stay if you want city style. What we do offer is good value, family friendly accommodation in a great location with easy access to Oban and a great pub and restaurant on site. You will sleep well (we are quiet and tranquil) and you will return home relaxed and refreshed. We look forward to welcoming you to Cologin. We don't feature regularly on review sites because most of our customers are return guests! ... more less
