The Wide Mouthed Frog
Ranked #42 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 September 2012 via mobile

Oban is so busy that this is a convenient place to stay. Rooms were comfortable but cold - asked for heating to be resolved but staff were unable or unwilling to do so. Food was excellent - the highlight of our stay really. This place could've been so much better but for a few minor details!

We stayed at the WMF twice in between visiting the islands. Our first room had a good view over the marina but broken tiles on the bathroom floor which lifted up as you walked on them, the second room was more spacious but one sheet on a tired mattress that you can feel the springs through is not satisfactory, neither was the broken hairdryer in the bathroom. We stayed two nights on the second visit and they also forgot to service the room so all in all we think it deserves the 'average' rating and won't be staying there again or recommending it to friends and family. The only redemming feature were the friendly staff.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper and worry about traffic noise, request a room overlooking the marina.

The restaurant has a nice view over the marina. We started with a drink on the terrace and them moved inside for dinner. The food was good, but not by any means great. The restaurant is attractive, but the table are a little too close together.

Main problem was the service. Initially everything was really rushed, which each course arriving immediately after we finished the last. Then when we wanted to order a coffee and later pay the bill it was almost impossible to attract any ones attention. The restaurant was by the end of the evening very busy, so I guess they wanted to serve us quickly when we first arrived to get us out of the way.

Stayed one night when taking the ferry to Mull, found the place was just what we needed. Clean room, friendly staff good choice on the menu.
Don't be put off by first impression, like all good things, it's often better than skin deep.
We'd use it again.

Had a nice experience here while travelling with a friend. We had a very large - long and narrow - room with two singles and a lounge area. Clean, modern, and nice views of the water. Dinner was also good. The staff were super friendly and helpful.

One night stay in the downstairs accommodation which was clean and set to a good standard. Unfortunately the guests upstairs could be heard talking and walking around very easily.
The staff were very friendly, with wifi available and the cooked breakfast was excellent

Room Tip: upstairs room if possible

The lunch menu in the restaurant is adequate and reasonably priced. The portions are large and the service was quick and friendly. It's not 4* but for a quick lunch stop, this is a good place with lovely views over the marina and castle.
