Esplanade Court Holiday Apartments
Ranked #9 of 19 Speciality Lodging in Oban
Reviewed 18 May 2013 via mobile

My husband and I booked this self catering accommodation for a week. The view on the bay was fantastic, bedrooms were nicely done as was the living room area. The kitchen would have been just as nicely presented had the floor covering been laid properly and not left looking rippled.
We had expected that wifi would have been throughout the building but had to go to one particular entrance area to receive this.
The proprietor was very friendly and helpful.
This is an excellent base for visiting Oban with magnificent views of the harbour.

My wife and I recently decided to visit and explore the west coast of Scotland. Elected to stay at Espanade Court Apartments overlooking Oban Bay.

The view firstly was absolutely stunning and we felt the accomodation more than met our own requirements. Our apartment was very clean, functional with all the ameneties one would need
to have a very comfortable stay. Indeed the apartment even came with Freeview television which to be honest we didn't use very often as we were keen on seeing some of the local islands and getting in some serious walking.

I felt the staff were first class. The welcome was warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I couldnt fault Esplanade Court at all really. Oban itself has all the buzz of a coastal tourist town and we took the opportunity to travel further afield by ferry to take in the Islands of Kerrera and Iona. Truly stunning and well worth it. Indeed we caught a small boat over to Kerrera which was free! Can't get better than that!

I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Espanade Court. It caters for families and couples alike and we felt there wasn't a better location in Oban for such stunning views. I very much enjoyed relaxing of an evening with a wee dram in my hand gazing out over the water to Mull and beyond.
Wonderful!

We decided to book again for next year in Spring so very much looking forward to a stay at Esplanade Court.

Room Tip: Not a problem as the rooms all come with a sea view. Simply stunning!

We stayed in a ground floor two bedroom apartment with our two teenage Granddaughters for a week in July. The apartment was perfect, comfortable furniture, in the lounge a great view . The view of the bay and the activity on the water is a huge bonus with this apartment. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils for cooking which we took advantage off. Very clean and well furnished. Great parking a close to walk into town. Could not suggest a more convenient spot in Oban. Great side trip to Mull. The only downside is the fact that there was no wifi in apartment you had to go to the foyer. If it had wifi it would be perfect. These days wifi is available in most b&b's particularly when you are paying a reasonable rate.

My wife and I stayed here with our two grandsons for one week in July 2012. The location could not be bettered and you can park right at the door with no hassle over meters, wardens or anything. As others have said, the views out over Oban bay, Kerrera and towards the mountains of Mull and Morvern are stunning and the sunsets something to behold. If you don;t want to cook in, there is a great selection of eateries within a short walk - from quality but pricey, via Indian, Chinese, and chippy, all the way down to greasy spoon.

Our apartment (a Type D) was clean and well equipped with plenty of space for us all to do our own thing on the couple of wet days that we stayed in. One warning though: don't be tempted to leave the immersion heater on, even if you do have two little mud magnets with you - it fair sets the electricity meter spinning and gobbling up your pound coins like there is no tomorrow! Service from the reception staff is spot on and unobtrusive

Now planning a return trip in 2013.

We stayed in the 3 bedroom Mull apartment. The best things about the apartment is the views from the lounge, it was fabulous, the view changing with the weather.
The apartment itself was warm and comfortable, it has everything you would need for a perfect holiday. All that is needed to improve the stay is an electric shower as 4 or more people can't have a shower from one tank of water. Also wifi in the apartment would be great, you kind of expect to have this these days.

Visited during September 2011, had a lovely week long stay here with family. A great base for exploring the highlands. Accomodation had great views, was clean and adquately equipped for our needs. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

We took the ferry from Oban to the Isle of Mull and visited Tobermory, excellent day trip. We also visited the Oban Distillary which was very interesting and reasonably priced. We also visited Inveraray and Loch Awe which were good days out.

Lots of good bars, pubs and restaurants to choose from, there is a little pub on the corner next to the apartments and the food was great.

All in all, a fantastic week.

Well, where do we start! Wonderful staff and views out of this world over the bay of Oban. Watching the sea traffic is very fascinating, always something to see, great location, very close to ferry terminal (5min walk) and railway station (6min walk). Accommodation for disability good. Wouldn't stay anywhere else but here in Oban, the wonderful gateway to the isles. Can't wait for next visit. Good car park spacing too.

Room Tip: All rooms have got a perfect view over the bay.
