I stayed here and was charged £80 b&b and although more expensive than other hotels in Oban, I decided to stay here as it was a higher star grade and had free wifi throughout, which I would use for work stuff. I arrived at the hotel around 745pm after a 385 mile drive and couldn't get a space at the hotel to park my car and struggle to get a space on the road. I then found it surprising that they asked me to pay for my room at check in, where normally you pay on departure and I couldn't get my receipt for this payment until I left in the morning. I was told my room was room 7 and how disappointed was I. The room was tiny (cupboard) with a single bed stuck at against the walls without a headboard and it had a very small TV on the wall. To make things worse, I couldn't pick up their wifi in my room, although the hotel claim it is available throughout the hotel. If I walked further along the corridor from my room, the wifi could then be picked up but, again lost when I returned to my room. To be fair, the bar meal and breakfast food was good, although limited choice on the bar meal menu and I can't comment on the other bedrooms, as I never saw them. The hotel reception area, front of hotel, bar etc was very nice, I just feel that for £80, bedroom 7 was a joke and would only be worth £45 max. Even at checkout this morning, I wasn't asked how my stay was etc, or I would of mentioned how unhappy I was. I would stay somewhere else on my next visit to Oban as I wouldn't want the chance of a room like this again for the money that was being charged.
