On arrival we looked for somewhere just to pull up outside and there was nowhere, i had my Girlfriend, 2 kids and all my stuff in the car and i was forced to leave it well down the road to walk back to this place. On entering i shouted, rang the bell and no one came, the place was deserted. I had to ring a mobile number to tell them i had arrived, i haeard the phone ring upstairs (mobile remember) and the person who answerd said they wernt there and that some one from another b&b would come to help up check in. Then i was told that there was no cooked meal for breakfast, something we expressly asked for and were promised. we were told we could have toast or cerial or leave it. As it was so short notice and my family were waiting outside i reluctantly agreed to stay evan though on viewing the room it was up a mountain of stairs and old and tacky and crampt. The bathroom was outside our room on the hall landing and constantly are locking your room and going in and out just to use the bathroom, very inconvenient. A hairdryer in a draw was smashed with cables hanging out and dangerous. The worst thing though is the parking, it is so bad. All the spaces in the street go & youve no chance of parking outside, so the only other option then is a pay and display car park down the end off the street, we had great fun walking back from the car park in pooring rain trying to carry a baby and our things all the way down the street on a busy road with a small pavement on only one side. When you drive down the street and you find no spaces because its one way your forced to drive back around the town centre to get back to a pay and display car park.Night time was noisy with TVs and shouting, this caused our youngest child to repetedly wake on the first night up to around 4am when it finally went quiet. We couldnt wait to leave and go to our next b&b but please dont let me put you off the Town of Oban which is an amazing place with wonderful kind people. I wouldnt stay here again if they paid me, evan the toast and cerial (No cooked breakfast which was promised) wasnt cleared away from the eating area till around 4pm ish. On the seccond day there was another family who had arrived and were stood around waithing for someone we felt sorry for them.
