“First Highland Heritage Holiday in Oban”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Last year I lost my wife and I needed a holiday and when a flier came though the door I was impressed. I booked the holiday for 6 days. we was greeted when we arrived at the hotel and did not have to think about my luggage as it was outside my room as I am disabled.
The hotel was very clean and so was my single bedroom.as we went into the dinning room we was greeted be the manager and staff, the food was excellent fresh and hot and a good choice.
evening entertainment was very good and if you wanted you could have a dance or 2.
Our driver was very knowledgeable and helpful. As I enjoyed the holiday I am planning next years at a different Hotel as they have another 3

Just back from a 5day break to the Alexandra with Highland Heritage,brilliant holiday and food.We had a room at the back[no view]but as good as any we have stayed in.The hotel even keeps topping up the courtesy tray[great for early cuppas]The trips enabled us to see lots of places and JEFF was very informative.We didnt go on the optional trip,we went to Mull on the ferry ,then to Tobermory/Balamory [and we did see an eagle]The staff were very friendly and helpful and its a GREAT idea that they have a BIG bowl for tips on the last day[it was filling up nicely]as this is shared out amongst the staff.The free concert was very good and Skipinish the main entertainment was excellent. The hotel entertainment,was very good [but one did clear the room] Bar prices was reasonable ,and hotel ideally placed to walk into Oban or watch the sunset at the monument.Overall a very good holiday for us, as we had good weather and company[we will go again]

Room Tip: A lot was said about sea views,they are very good if you want to upgrade

We had the best holiday we could have at the Alexandra Hotel with Highland Heritage. We had a superior sea view room it was fantastic. The staff and management were all very welcoming and pleasant. Real value for money the food was really good also the entertainment. The Hotel is in a beautiful position on the Bay, kept very clean and tidy.We would gladly go back there any time.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view Number 34 also saw Room 74 which was excellent.

An excellent Highland break we took the M-F break but opted to drive ourself as we were going other places before and after - rather than the chalets behind the car park we should have had we asked for and got a superior sea view room which was excellent. As others have said meals a bit regimented but were quickly served and at least hot fair quality for the price paid. Coach tours well organised with an excellent driver/guide.

Room Tip: must ask for sea room view as others simply face a car park.

We had a great stay at the Alexandra on a package holiday with Highland Heritage.
The hotel was a bit regimented as to eating times which revolve mainly around the Coaches and the excursions timings, just 1 sitting time for Breakfast and Evening meals.
It is not very Disabled friendly either, no access to the front of the building which has steps and no ramp access, you can only get a wheelchair in from the rear and you have to go around the church next door, up a hill and into the car park at the rear of the building, which is also a steep incline and is a hard push up to the row of chalet type rooms at the top of the car park where our room was.
The location is quite good, with a 10 minute walk to the town centre.
Overall we had a great holiday, I would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you are disabled, choose a room in the main building, they do have a lift.
