Great friendly welcome clearly understand the term customer service. I was made to feel nothing was too much trouble the room was of the highest standard and the food was second to none. I would recommend this as my number one place to stay in Oban. Value with quality

The Queens Hotel is a great find; a classy, modern hotel – with plenty of traditional Scottish touches - set on the Oban coast. With huge, comfy beds, stunning views to the front of the hotel, the friendliest staff and amazing jacuzzi baths in your room. Set a little way out of the town centre, the hotel is quiet - you won't hear any noise, except for the lapping waves.

Warm and friendly atmosphere, very helpful staff, excellent clean accomodation and good value restaurant. Will return for another visit. Most enjoyable and relaxing weekend away. Near local amenities and places to visit.

We have just returned from the Queens Hotel after spending two nights bed and breakfast. We chose this hotel because of the good reviews and we were not disappointed.
The room
On the 3rd floor with a partial sea view. Lovely! Newly refurbished (we could still smell the paint) with a huge Queen sized bed, new carpeting and curtains and a fabulous bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. A decent hair dryer is also included in the room
The staff
Excellent! Everyone is so friendly and helpful without being 'in your face'.
The food
Breakfasts were really good with excellent service and the bar meal we had on Saturday night was also really nice.
The location
Fantastic! right on the esplanade and within walking distance of the town centre. Walked to Taj Mahal Indian restaurant on Friday night which was also excellent.
Cleanliness
Excellent!!! Everywhere was clean; carpets, wallpaper, seating and corridors included.
Parking
Our only gripe! There are only about 6 car parking spaces (some of which are a bit tight). You can park outside on the esplanade but there were numerous cars parked right along the esplanade and this was at the end of March. I don't know how anyone would find a parking space in high season.
Overall a really lovely weekend in a lovely hotel. We would definitely return!

I had read about Gary the foraging chef and thought this sounds interesting, let's get to the Queens Hotel. The long story short was a fantastic dining experience that I'd thoroughly recommend for the taste, enthusiasm of the chefs and the plain old value for money. Whilst waiting to go through to the restaurant, we had 3 extra starters, all served on hot rocks, possibly from the beach, but exquisite involving, pickled mushrooms, steak tartare and caviar (not at once!). Extra number 4 was wolfish, then down to 6 amazing courses, with Gary coming out to explain what was on the plate and where it had come from, many of which were locally sourced. I tried not to be too excited by 3 puddings, one of which had Jerusalem artichokes in it and foraged sorrel. And the added complication of providing a gluten free alternative as necessary was done with style. The menu doesn't even touch on how quirky and tasty the whole meal was. Can't wait to go back!

The restaurant has a six course set menu prepared by Scottish Chef of the Year 2011 Gary Goldie and is receiving an incredible amount of praise for the quality and standard for the dishes he prepares.

My friend and I stayed overnight so we could catch an early ferry to Mull. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was fantastic. I'm a vegetarian and was delighted to see vegetarian sausage & bacon as options on the menu for breakfast. The coffee was very good and we were offered more toast by a waiter who was attentive without being intrusive. We were there on a Sunday night and were able to park without any problems.
I will definitely stay at The Queens Hotel next time I am in Oban. Very impressed!!

One night stay, comfy room, good food, friendly staff, all you need for a good stay. Bit short of parking spaces, but beautiful views, and hotel is within easy walking distance of the town. Some of the cafe's and shops don't reopen until the Easter holidays begin.
