This is a budget hotel so should be judged on that basis. The staff were most friendly, the room clean. and the bed comfortable. At breakfast I was served some of the tastiest sausages I've eaten, from a local butcher. There's a nice choice or malt whisky in the bars too.
On the debit side, the room carpet was grubby, the sash window tended either to jam or not stay open, and the stairs are very steep. Parking is an issue as it is everywhere in Oban.
But you get what you pay for and the central location is ace for taking the ferries to the isles and for exploring the town.

Room Tip: Not a room tip but a parking one. If you are spending a day on the isles, park in the top end of the...

Just of the Main Street this was a good find with a snug bar, a spacious lounge/restaurant and a good outdoor area. Bar staff were really friendly and they have a good menu with an incredible 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for £20 deal each week night till 9 pm. This is a cracking deal and the best we found in Oban. Steak was cooked to perfection too.

The welcome was warm and the staff is very friendly. The room is big enough but old decorated. The bed was old and creaking. There is a pub and lounge also managed by the owners. I ate both evenings in the lounge and it was really very good. Unfortunately, when I tried to make tea, there was still water there is certainly a long time in the kettle and cup had dust. Still, I recommend this hotel if you are looking functional and inexpensive.

This is quite a well-kept secret and, as it is off the beaten track, it doesn’t get many passers by. Those passing by would probably not give this place a second glance. For those who know about it is in fact very close to the heart of Oban, probably less than 100yards from Oban Bay.
I go here whenever I am in Oban for a pint of real ale. It is very well kept and includes great English Bitters such as Old Speckled Hen or Abbot’s Ale.
The hotel has the Creel Bar which is comparatively large and overlooks a suntrap courtyard (one of the few places you can sit outside with a pint) and a much smaller public bar which is much preferred by the locals.
The beer is excellent, prices reasonable and the crack excellent (if there is no sport on the telly).

I stayed here with my sister when we had a night out in Oban. They gave us a family room instead of a twin at no extra cost. The place isn't perfect but it was ideal for our needs. Clean enough, warm, close to all amenities and the lady working there was pleasant.
