Oban is a small Scottish town and the only nice things I can say about this hotel is; great location on the water , an easy walk to town and great for a sunset view . In my opinion, this is a hotel waiting to close which is a shame because it could be very nice with a bit of work. There seems to be two parts to the hotel, a 50ish style part and the historic part. Our room was in the historic part...The elevator was not terribly reliable so we walked up to the third floor. The building creaked and cracked, the fire doors were made of wood and glass.The room was very small....there was mold around the window ,the light in the bathroom didn't work and the toilet didn't flush without a lot of effort. The bed was probably a queen but looked a lot smaller and the coverlet used on it barely covered the mattress so when one person rolled over; the other became uncovered. When we arrived the cold water faucet was frozen off but they were able to fix that and they did put a light in the bathroom.You would have thought the maid would have noticed these things?? There were no tissues in the room. The lobby was sparse and also served as the bar. The dining room was large and breakfast was bleak...the worst part was the lipstick on the cups...more than one. Made me wonder about the kitchen?? It was also a very noisy hotel because it lacked any soundproofing...every time someone opened or shut a door you were awakened. I can roll with a lot of things but mold, dirty dishes and a room with so many issues are truly inexcusable.
