Expectations weren't great as we booked last minute but trusted other reviews. Staff were so friendly and catered superbly for my partners gluten and dairy allergy, we learnt one of the staff members went to the shops just for us, thank you so much, the breakfast in our room was superb and so thoughtful. Room was clean, decorated well, ground floor, bathroom a little small but only here for a night. Free parking was a bonus and location is a 10 min walk along the coast to the town centre. Can't recommend this hotel enough

Property's Favourite Review
We had the absolute pleasure of staying at Alltavona for 2 nights last week and cannot recommend it highly enough. On entering our room we were immediately struck by the gorgeous decor, the wallpaper and bedding were stunning and the room was so unique. We had not paid for a sea view and so when looking out of our side view window we could not believe the fantastic view we had of the water. Such a lovely surprise. I must emphasise the extremely high standard to which the room had been cleaned. It was immaculate, and one of the most well presented places we have stayed. The team clearly work to a very high standard and it did not go unnoticed. During Covid a continental breakfast is delivered to your room at a time of your choosing. Carol very kindly also offered us hot breakfast rolls which was very much appreciated and so unexpected. The breakfast was terrific and of great quality with more then enough to keep us going. Hot rolls (2 square sausage per roll!), cereal, croissant, muffin, breakfast bar, fruit, fresh orange etc etc. The lady who delivered the breakfast was so friendly and helpful. We would like to give the highest praise to Carol who is just the most welcoming host. During normal times the standard provided would have exceeded expectations, so to visit during Covid after what must have been a tough year and receive such high quality was outstanding. This will be our number one choice for Oban in future. Thanks so much for all of your help with parking and rearranging our stay. See you again.

Just returned from a weekend break at Alltavona . Cannot fault anything about this hotel. From initial contact Carol communicate with us at each stage . We stayed in room 6, beautiful sea view. Hotel is spotless and clean, very warm and cosy. Breakfast was served in room and was amazing, would definitely recommend as Carol and her staff could not do enough for us. Arranging a room with a bath as I made the mistake of forgetting to request this to topping up all tea/ coffee etc and recommending places to visit in Oban. Overall a lovely experience

Third time staying at Alltavona and it never disappoints. Always a friendly welcome from Carol who can’t do enough for you. We stayed in room 10 this time and it was so spacious and beautifully decorated. The breakfast trays are always outstanding, there are no negatives whatsoever except that we couldn’t stay longer! Thanks for another fantastic trip to Oban!
