My husband and I spent two nights at The Ranald in mid-June and were pleased with our accomodations. The room was attractively furnished in a non-fussy fashion, and it was very clean and spacious. Although small, the bathroom was also very clean. The hotel's location, downtown just one short block off the main street,is convenient and means it's possible to walk nearly everywhere. We enjoyed the breakfast included with the room, but were amused by the room in which it was served-- a quirky combination of breakfast room, bar, and reception area. However, it seemed to function well in all capacities. We would happily return to The Ranald if we are in Oban again, but I would like to address some of the comments made by other reviewers. First is the lack of elevator. While this didn't bother us since our room was on the second floor, it could certainly present a problem under some circumstances and is something to take into consideration. Second is noise level. Once again, this does not apply to us because our room at the back of the hotel was quiet, but when one is staying at a hotel located right downtown, it is only realistic to expect some noise. If quiet is a priority, request a room at the back or realize that this might not be the hotel for you.
