Spent 2 nights at The Ranald in Oban. Wonderful hotel. Brilliant service. Great flat location close to the harbour and short walk to the distillery. Only negatives are nil lift and small rooms.
This said the staff carried our suitcases to our 1st floor room when we checked in. Room was clean and new. Beautiful modern decor. Bathroom had sink and shower (no bath) and heat rack for towels. Towels were the thickest and most luxurious I have seen for a long while in a hotel. Room safe is tiny. Would not fit a full size tablet/iPad. Limited number of power points. TV was good size and well located. Our room had a view over Stevenson street which was nice and the window opened. Was noisy only 1 night for a short time. Twin beds were very comfortable but are just standard singles so are a wee small.
Breakfast was fabulous. Staff prepare breakfast in a room the size of a broom cupboard and do a great job. Food was fresh and tasty. Staff were so helpful and polite. We really enjoyed our stay.
Parking in the street out front is tight. Small parking spots. However staff directed us to a free public car park a short walk away which we used for the bulk of our stay.
Can't wait to come back to Oban to stay at The Ranald and eat the local seafood (especially the langoustine) and drink the local whiskey. Lots to explore in town and nearby.
