We arrived in Oban after a long and tiring drive in the rain. We were excited to get into our room and relax before we found a location for dinner. The two men at the check in desk were not very friendly and we loaded out bags into the tiniest, slowest elevator ever. Our room was very disappointing. There was a stain of questionable origins (ew) on one of the comforters. It made me think of those shows where they comb the hotel room with a block light (double ew). The decor was old, tired and dingy. We went our to dinner and returned as late as possible so that we were so tired we just crashed. We left the next morning for Mull on the Ferry and the young woman at check out was friendlier than the meant he evening before. Oban is a cute town, but this hotel is worth avoiding!
