my partner and i booked this particular hotel for a night away from the norm and had always wanted to visit Oban. the hotel was great value for money and the staff were friendly and welcoming.

The rooms were basic but well serviced for all your needs, tea, coffee etc.i felt that the hotel had great character, especially from the outside and could easily have been spending the night there in the 50's but i feel that this added to its appeal.

The hotel inside is modern to a degree but could do with some upgrading, such as gas central heating instead of the present electric heating which i found we had no control over the warmth of our room, and this is one of the only 2 faults i could find with this hotel, the other being the draughty windows, however this was compensated with heavy curtains to close in the evening.

unlike some hotels this was quiet with no noise pollution from outside or inside for that matter. The room we had was on the fourth floor and had a fantastic view over Oban bay.

one thing i would like to add, this hotel like most of the hotels has no onsite parking, which as this time of year is not so problematic. During the high season i think issues could be cause and that fact that you have to pay for parking will incur extra costs depending on the length of your stay

Having read some of the reviews we were a bit anxious about our visit, however we are glad to say that we have been pleasantly surprised. Yes some of the fixtures and fittings are a bit in need of fresh coat of paint, what does not need changed is the excellent standard menu or the ala carte menu. We especially liked the opt in or out of ala carte menu for a wee bit extra from the standard menu. We took advantage of this both nights we ate in and were very appreciative of the well chosen standard menu which changed nightly. The food on both menu's was well cooked, well presented and even better served. The staff were attentive to our needs without being intrusive, they were polite, well mannered and clean. The room although nothing special was clean and tidy, room staff out of sight as they should be. There was entertainment on both nights of our stay although we did not partake. The entertainment could not be heard from our room, nor did street noise intrude. Although there is not parking on site for which we deducted half a point there is parking nearby. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the town although you may need wet weather gear (not hotel's fault).

In short we will be coming back here, eating here and recommending here.

Wonderful friendly staff willing to go that extra mile to help. Our room had fab views of Oban Bay . Decor is tired and could do with a a refurbishment ...Irene and her team in the dining room make sure the service is first class.

Myself and my partner booked this break just after Xmas for end of Jan to beat the Jan blues.. It was cheap so we expected what we paid for.....but wow.....what value for money. Yes the rooms are tiered but it is clean and very comfortable. The staff are always so keen to help and serve and the food ---- well to think what I paid for the weekend, I would have paid for the food alone....................outstanding. The chefs there are top class...as are all the staff and management. If I return to Oban, I would certainly go back

Can't speak highly enough of the staff and the service. Stayed for 3 nights over new year. Although hotel was basic in terms of accommodation this was more than compensated by the friendliness of the Manager and staff who did everything to make sure the guests all had a good time. Food excellent too and great value overall.

Stayed: December 2013
