Visited this hotel 26th October - 29th October. Should have gone the weekend before but read in the paper about the Norovirus so changed to the following week. Having stayed at this hotel on numerous occassions this visit was a big disappointment. The public areas were very cold and on the Saturday night we were sitting in the lounge next to the window and we had to move as the rain was coming in. I understand that this is a very old hotel but it really is getting very shabby and is needing some money spending on it. The dining room was always very cold and the service was very poor. The food was certainly not as good as previous visits. The only saving grace for this hotel is the staff and I must say they were all great. Some of the staff who have been here for a long time remembered us from our previous visits which was very nice. However this on its own would not make us return to this hotel in the near future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a prime location, right in the centre of the curving esplanade, just a pleasant walk from the shops and harbour, stands Oban's Great Western; a hotel proud of offering space and comfort, as well as magnificent views of the bay (remember to look out for those memorable sunsets!). Ideal for a relaxing holiday, the activity on the bay can simply be watched from the welcoming lounge and cocktail bar, while it's also an ideal touring centre. With Glencoe, serene lochs and the Western Isles on the doorstep, there's a myriad of sightseeing opportunities. And with coast and country walks, angling, sailing, diving, bird-watching and a whole host of other leisure pursuits at hand, you should never be at a loss for something to do. ... more less
