Stayed here for one night - good location, no great comments on quality - thought £120 per night was expensive for quality of room however cannot comment on average rates for area.... Location and parking at rear a plus, rooms very basic and walls thin, can hear everyone above and next door.

First time we have ever been to Oban and it certainly did not disappoint. When arriving at the hotel, the staff were friendly and got us checked in quickly. Our room was a good size and the bed was really comfortable. Our view from the room looked on to the street but we weren't really bothered much by the noise...

We booked in for one night and although there was a slight glitch in our booking, it was quickly resolved. The room was spacious and comfortable; being at the rear of the Hotel, we were not disturbed by external noise. The wifi is hit or miss and the room information is quite clear on that. In our case it was...

Efficient, friendly staff provided a welcoming venue for our meeting last night. Superb hospitality and excellent location for our group to meet up. We will definitely be back and hopefully next time we will find the time to stay for a meal - the steaks looked wonderful.

The room was clean, but rather tired. There was only one bedside light and there was a hole in the bed cover. The bathroom was refurbished but only one light over the wash basin worked. The bed was comfy and we would have slept well, but there was a door banging in the wind all night. Breakfast was nicely cooked...

We checked into this hotel on Christmas Eve and left on Boxing Day. I lived in Oban for many years and knew the hotel but this was the worst possible criteria I could have used to book it. First, we booked on a room only basis and the rate was very impressive at around £100 for 2 people for 2...

Had dinner here here. Food was poor, but the guy who said he is one of the owners was just rude and awful. Loved himself into the bargain too. Would never go there again or recommend it to anyone either. Steer well clear. If I could give it zero or minus zero then I would. It really is that bad.
