Reviewed May 11, 2012

We have stayed here several times in our way to the Western Isles. It has excellent facilities and really good food. The meals we have had here rank among the best meals we have ever had anywhere. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. They employ the best waitress in Britain! The hotel also has the advantage of being almost next to the ferry port.

Room Tip: All the rooms we have stayed in have been good but obviously the ones with views over the harbour an...

We loved this hotel with its homely feel and focus on comfort and quality. Food excellent and well presented with balanced flavours and emphasis on local ingredients. At the end of a holiday it was nice to be able to choose how many courses we ate from the set menu, rather than to be overwhelmed with food as sometimes happens. Room was very clean cosy and comfortable. We enjoyed the view over the harbour and watching the ferries coming and going. Staff were obviously proud of what they were doing and well trained.
We had to leave early and before breakfast was served. We were provided with a generous continental tray breakfast with plenty of choice which we appreciated.
Would certainly recommend that you book in advance as even mid week the hotel was busy and the restaurant nearly full.

Room Tip: Rooms are all individual and quiet .The harbour view is great

We stayed at Manor House Hotel over the Easter week-end. The place is just great, very cosy, perfectly clean and staff is friendly and welcoming. We had dinner at the restaurant, the food was excellent and good value for money in my mind (£35 for a 5 courses, there is no way you can find something similar here in London...). Rooms are comfortable and quiet. In short everything was perfect!

Stayed here a couple of times now and will definitely be back. The hotel is well situated near the centre of Oban but secluded and overlooking the bay. The rooms are clean and well looked after but it’s the food that brings us back to this place. They very cleverly put the daily menu on their website and after reading it you are hooked and on arrival in the restaurant the food exceeds expectations.
A great place to stay if you want to be looked after and treated like a valued guest. A night here leaves you feeling relaxed and at ease with the world. A lot of hotels in the area could learn a great deal from the Manor House.

Room Tip: Worth paying a bit extra to get a sea view room.

Have stayed in many hotels in Oban, but this has to be the best. Extremly clean, service friendly and efficient. Location is perfect with fantastic views and very quiet. We ate all our meals at the hotel and were not disappointed. Oh and they happily accepted our pet dog who also enjoyed his stay. Lovely comfortable bed gave us a good nights sleep. Fully recommend to anyone as long as we can still get a room for our next visit.

We came in search of romance and you couldn't fail to find it here. The Manor House Hotel is simply outstanding! From the tartan carpet in the restaurant to the William Morris style wallpaper in the room it is just first class. The views towards Kerrera and Mull are spectacular and the service is friendly and attentive. They even put logs on the fire so we could use the sitting room. The food is amazing, the rooms clean, comfortable and stylish. It's the perfect place to stay in Oban I've never had a better mini break!

Decided to book a couple of nights in Oban due to the great weather in late March and found this hotel on Trip TripAdvisor which had great ratings. The hotel has views over the bay to the Cathedral and the town centre (the only blight on the landscape is the commercial boat yard adjacent). We initially booked 2 nights dinner, B&B in a superior sea view room. The room was excellent, quite spacious with a double aspect or, as they say in Glasgow, 2 windaes. It was freshly decorated with a new carpet with nice furnishings, a very comfortable room indeed. The 5 course evening meals were superb with an excellent choice of steak, fish, duck,vegetarian etc,. The breakfasts were also excellent, full Scottish grill, porridge, kippers, cereal. The dining room is very cosy and intimate and the two other public rooms were very welcoming with a log burning fire in the lounge. Staff were friendly and professional. We liked it so much we decided to stay for another night but had to move to a standard room. The room was fine, again freshly decorated and quite comfortable although the bathroom was a little bit compact. All the rooms have tea, coffee & hot chocolate and also fresh fruit and a bowl of choc's. This was great find and thanks to previous reviewers. The hotel was very busy at the weekend with locals for lunch so, book in advance. Note, its served in the bar and lounge and for some reason the restaurant is not used for lunch.
