The Manor House in Oban is without doubt one of the best small hotels in Scotland. I have travelled in Scotland as a Photo-Journalist for over 40 years - and experienced some of the best and the worst hotels we have to offer. The Manor House is a Jewel on the West Coast and the BEST hotel in Oban. I stayed there for a week while covering the Royal National Mod in 2003 and have returned many times since then . It is still same lovely place today with friendly and helpful staff. Some rooms are a bit small but beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean very comfortable beds, bathrooms have showers that work!!!! and big towels . Dinner is excellent wonderfully cooked and presented to 5 star standards. Lunch in the bar is also a treat - the best Seafood Risotto ever . The room rates in mid to high season have got a wee bit too pricey - but still well worth a visit I will return soon...I would recommend it to anyone who likes excellent food and a place to chill out.
