We have stayed in many hotels, but this was unfortunately one of the worst hotels that we have stayed at. We weren't made aware of the fact we had to "reserve" a car park space, but this could only be done once we arrived -at £5 per day, what a rip off. Breakfast a joke, dozens of empty tables, yet we were "assigned" a table (for 4 pax), which was apparently "our" table for breakfast each morning then another couple we placed beside us. The breakfast bar was ill stocked and dirty. We had tea/coffee making stores in our room, yet no Cups to use, no hair dryer, no toiletries apart from minuscule soap. Someone is trying to do something to better the hotel but shoddy workmanship doesn't help and static staff. It is disappointing we had to pay £89 per night for this, we could have, and should have gone to a guest house.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a prime location, right in the centre of the curving esplanade, just a pleasant walk from the shops and harbour, stands Oban's Great Western; a hotel proud of offering space and comfort, as well as magnificent views of the bay (remember to look out for those memorable sunsets!). Ideal for a relaxing holiday, the activity on the bay can simply be watched from the welcoming lounge and cocktail bar, while it's also an ideal touring centre. With Glencoe, serene lochs and the Western Isles on the doorstep, there's a myriad of sightseeing opportunities. And with coast and country walks, angling, sailing, diving, bird-watching and a whole host of other leisure pursuits at hand, you should never be at a loss for something to do. ... more less
