    Just had a lovely two night stay in the royal hotel and I can't find fault with it. Room clean and food good. staff friendly and efficient. And the price was very reasonable. For anyone wanting a short stay in Oban I'd recommend the royal.

    I'm afraid our rooms were very small!! Mine in particular was tiny, but since I spent no time in it at all - I didn't bother too much. It was clean and functional.
