At 60 pounds without breakfast, the best thing I can say about The Palace Hotel is that has the perfect location for easy walking around Oban - right on the Corran Esplanade over looking the waterfront. It's an older property. The en suite rooms are quite adequate, but nothing special. Unfortunately, the hotel doesn't have an elevator and it was quite an ordeal carrying our luggage up to our room on the third floor.
I found the available full Scottish breakfast to be rather expensive at 10 pounds. Toast and coffee was offered at 3 pounds. Luckily, there are lots of cheaper nearby breakfast options available.
The place has a bit of a Fawlty Towers vibe about it. One thing I found odd and totally uncalled for was a prominent sign warning guests that if they brought outside food and drink into their rooms they would be charged a 40 pound fine.
Would I stay there again? Probably, because of the location.
