Our stay could not have been better. What a find! I’d go to Oban just to stay at No.26 BytheSea. Everything from the greeting we received, our amazing room, the drinks bar, fantastic night’s sleep and the most fabulous breakfast with walks right on the doorstep. I did not want to leave. Thank you

Where to begin - No 26 was our favorite hotel stay during our recent trip to Scotland. We spent 3 nights there - and had a spacious room with a view of the Bay (Room 2). The staff was fantastic - helpful with many suggestions to make our stay more enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious - a favorite activity was selecting our breakfast order for the following morning. Another favorite activity was sampling the various options available from the Honesty Bar - pre dinner G&Ts and post dinner Scottish malts. We will be back!

Amazing hotel. Attention to detail was incredible. Pre-breakfast and breakfast of exceptional quality. Great selection of drinks at the honesty bar. Shower was the easiest one ever to operate. Would like to try the other 8 rooms as they are all individually decorated.

Stayed for a 2 night break at this small hotel. Rooms were beautifully furnished and the views to the front outstanding. Lounge with honesty bar was great to relax before going out and the hotel was only a 10 minute walk into the centre of Oban. The breakfast was probably the best I have ever experienced, taken in the kitchen with the chef cooking in front of you, it was outstanding. Service was great and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going on a break to Oban.

Great hotel and location for a big birthday break. The rooms are are very luxurious and the 2-course breakfast on offer is outstanding. Located as the end of the esplanade, there is great views over the harbour of ships and wildlife. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back if we can
