“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

stayed here for one night and have no complaints regards this hotel. We stayed in room 26 which has a huge bay window overlooking Oban -with fantastic views. The room was nice and bed really comfy. Only shower in toilet - no bath. Only gripe was that the bathroom could have been cleaner! There is a nice bar area where you can sit on a balcony in the sun, which also has views of Oban and car park. Breakfast in the morning was really nice and tasty and service from staff was just right. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 26 - Superior Room was booked and lovely outlook

A friendly welcome and comfortable accommodation. The hotel is well situated on the hill above the town but the parking area is small and difficult to manouvre. The bed was comfortable breakfast was good and the bar although small is cosy. Free WIFI although I found the Internet connection was a little slow.

Having last year stayed at an impersonal modern hotel in the centre of town, it was a great relief to be in a comfortable hotel on the fringe with a warm welcome, personal service combined with local knowledge and a great view. The sea view room was well worth the money. Easy access to town centre without the disadvantages and a friendly, helpful proprietor.
Our room was excellent, breakfast good and parking spacious. We wished we had not been able to stay longer and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Well worth booking a sea view room

We stayed a night here on our recent trip to Scotland, arriving quite late in the evening.
The manager was very welcoming, quickly taking our luggage in for us, and arranging some
dinner and drinks.
As the rooms are small we had booked two adjacent each other. These proved very comfortable, quiet and cosy with good little ensuites. They were located to catch the morning sun - very pleasant .
Breakfast was great with full Scottish on the menu that we had to try. There are nice views of the township and water, and a short taxi ride will quickly take you down to the shops and ferry & train terminals.

The familiar atmosphere of a private guest house with the comforts of a hotel - what more can you asked for?! Very warm welcome, nice rooms, well sorted whisky bar and a magnificent view over Oban Bay. We really enjoyed our stay for two very enjoyable days. Thanks very much, Tom and Graham, hope to see you again. If we ever return to Oban, this will be the place of our choice. Best regards from Hamburg, Astrid, Oscar & Christian
