boutique hotels in oban?

I'm wondering if there are any reasonably priced boutique type hotels or guest houses in oban? everywhere i've looked at seems a bit too tartan clad - for example, can't stand four poster beds etc...

If you don't mind staying a bit out of Oban I'd recommend the following 2 Guest Houses - both are superb:

1) www.dunnamara.com

2) www.melforthouse.co.uk

WE have been told a few years ago,by someone in the business that corriemar was a very nice boutque style guesthouse,6 delux seaview rooms one with four poster which proves very popular,but by far our round seafront windows are the most spacious and opulent.

corriemarhouse has 14 individually furnished bedrooms and large seafront lounge as you can see from virtual tourn

Not a sight off tartan,and good tarrif.

Realistically there aren't any boutique hotels in Oban so just not to get your hopes up. It just isn't that kind of place. I would look at The Manor House (lovely small hotel atmosphere and great food) or the only 5 star guest house Dungallen House. But you will get a element of old worlde tarten wherever you go as that is what 99% of tourists are looking for.

Just to say that Dunnamara ( 20 mins drive) and Loch Melford ( 40 mins drive) and both a fair way out of Oban and don't have many / any eating option near by.
