“Small friendly hotel with lovely staff”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Spent a night at The Wide Mouthed Frog. The welcoming was friendly and had that 'staying at a friends house' feel to it, which is what I like. The member of staff was really helpful and was a good laugh aswell as easy to have a conversation with and would even come out to have a bit of banter, which is a nice touch.
The room was a bit on the small side, but that wasn't really a problem. The view was beautiful. My only tiny complaint is the style of the bed coverings, they were a little old fashioned looking.

The breakfast in the morning was really nice and again the service is nice and relaxed. They also didn't 'rush' us out the hotel either. I think check out is 11am, but they give you time at your own pace.

Definitely would consider staying here again when we visit Oban again.

We drank and sat out on the grass area ...beer and setting were great!

next time we went in we ordered fish and chips and kids fish and chips....both really fresh, and tasty! Kids devoured the food!

Friendly and fast service.

Stayed here with friends in adjoining rooms on a day when the weather was very poor. However the welcome was warm and friendly and the service was excellent. The excellent food in the restaurant was reasonable priced and very tasty. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If staying as 2 couples, rooms 6 and 7 are great and accessed through a private dedicated entrance.

We stayed for one night on our way to Kintyre. We loved this place! The room was large and comfortable and our Labrador was welcome too. We had a delicious meal in the restaurant, and then relaxed in the bar with our dog at our feet. The breakfast was very good too, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is excellent: lovely view of the marina and islands, and a very convenient place to stay. We will certainly come again.

Stayed here a few years back with my family.
This was some time ago and things may have changed but I'll tell my story.
Rented Apartment for week only to find Mice were eating our food within the 1st hour.
We had a child with us and we informed staff who were really good and understanding.
It was just the owner who wouldnt move us because as she said..Mice are everywhere in the countryside. Even when we explained we had a 1year old kid she didnt want to know.
Managed to get a nice place in Oban.
Thank god for review pages...so we can hit back at these establishments..

Room Tip: Take a mousetrap !

Non residents welcome at this restaurant/bar overlooking the marina just outside Oban. The views are great, service is friendly and efficient and the food lovely. Good selection with the emphasis on sea food. The whole place looked clean and welcoming

We had a dog and were put in the lodge beside the main hotel. Huge room and lovely position.
Staff very helpful and very dog friendly.
Beautiful location by the water and very close to Oban for catching the early ferry to Mull.
Breakfast very good but far too much!
Would recommend.

Room Tip: Worth choosing the separate rooms by the car park, upstairs room has a balcony overlooking the water...
