This is a nice enough hotel, modern and well located. We easily found parking outside over night and in the free car park during the day.
We checked in on New Years Day, and the room wasn't ready for us when we arrived (we were early). When we did get to our room, it didn't seem the cleanest - there were clothes tags on the floor from the previous occupiers and the wall was scuffed and a bit dirty looking, but I think that is due to the size of the room we had booked as there isn't a lot of room for luggage. The bathroom was spotless though and the bed is very comfy. I think the fact the hotel had been full the night before and it being a public holiday meant the staff were under a lot of pressure that day.
We paid for a compact room and it is definitely that. If you expect to spend a lot of time in the room, I'd suggest paying extra for a larger room. The compact room is perfectly good if you're just sleeping there.
Breakfast is good with decent choices, staff are very helpful.
There is no lift, so if you struggle with stairs, ask for a room on one of the lower floors.
Definitely the most modern of the hotels in Oban and reasonably priced too.
