Stayed in this hotel with Caledonian Travel coach tour for long weekend. Tired around the edges, sure, but clean and very comfortable and warm. We had sea view (single rooms, one was upgraded to sea view on arrival at no extra charge).
Very well run hotel and staff (especially waiting staff in restaurant) were amazingly efficient and helpful. Evening meals were, on the whole, tasty and good choice. Breakfasts were more than adequate, limitless cereals, porridge, fresh fruit, toast/preserves and then very good choice of hot meals eg., full English, vegetarian full English, kippers etc.
Hotel is situated a couple of minutes stroll from the shops/restaurants/bars, so no need for taxi's or buses.
For the money we paid, we couldn't fault this hotel on value and service. Two negatives I would comment on however are a) the hotel lift ....... smallest I've been in, supposed to fit four people, struggles to hold two plus bags! and b) the lounge where entertainment is held is very small and fills up quickly, so we didn't get to see any of the acts on our visit. That apart, we would recommend this hotel and Oban is a lovely place to visit. Special thanks to Maria and the lassies and lads in the restaurant ...... outstanding service :-)
- 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
