I have stayed in many hotels and worked in some of the top class. If you book Executive you would expect Executive Yes/No ? I cannot see one thing Exectuive in there so called rooms. No plug sockets next to bed. No dressing gowns and paper slippers. No. Satellite tv or a remote control to see what is available. Cold pool. No Covid standards at all. You can book breakfast for whatever time and arrive at what time you please. All of this encompassed with some of the rudest staff I have ever encountered. Have second thoughts b4 booking this one is my advise!!!

We, a family of four, stayed in the Muthu Alexandra hotel in a double and a twin room for three nights in October 2021. The rooms were of a good size, especially the twin, with fantastic views of Oban bay out towards the islands. Stunning! The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice both hot and cold and served as a buffet. The indoor pool was a good size and the steam room perfectly adequate. The staff were friendly and efficient and there was ample parking both at the front and rear of the hotel. All in all, a great place to stay while visiting Oban.

Great stay at the Mutha Alexandra we were leaving Oban in the evening and got a flat tyre and needed somewhere to stay until we could get it repaired the next day. All the staff were so helpful getting us a room and making up separate beds at the last minute and made recommendations for repair garages in the area. The room was beautiful with lovey decor and very clean and comfortable beds. We had a meal in the restaurant and they had a great menu and the food was delicious. Thank you

First of all the good points. Breakfast is rather good, and can request porridge, boiled eggs etc. Other than a tired erratic toasting machine all good. Rooms appeared clean. Now the bad. For some reason coach party departures can block all the halls with luggage and their rooms are serviced first. My father badly needed access for medical purposes to his room and we waited 7 hours. I did speak to the duty/General manager about this. We had complimentary beverages at the bar. Hope the cleaning of the furniture wasn't too expensive for them due to such a long wait. What bothered me most though was apparent violations in fire regulations. See attached pictures. We paid £520 for 2 rooms over 2 nights. Doubt I would return. Oh and there is no disabled parking to speak of. Grab what you can and make the best of it.
