i have just returned from my one day shopping in Oban...i live on Colonsay and i was very happy of the thought i can go and come back by ferry in the same day...so took a large suitcase and went to Tesco for almost everything to shop....unfortunatelly, i have missed the ferry with only minutes, and there i am, with a masive bag full of food, not knowing where to turn. luckily, somebody pointed the "blue house up the hill" and agreed to stay for the night. the gentlman- sorry did not take any names- kindly took a large part of my shoppings and stored it in there own fridge. i had a lovely room, very modern and comfortable, with a lovely colour scheme...the shower was great- great pressure of water and nice good quality toiletries and towels...everything was sparkling clean...it was a short stay and not planned at all, but i was enjoing it so much, i went back to Tesco and bought myself a new pyjama and a fluffy dressing gown..i have also bought more food which i regreted the next morning!.the bed was very comfortable, so after a nice cup of tea and a half of a film, i was fast asleep. i had a full breakfast - probably the best i have tried up to now! i have worked in the hotel business for almost 8 years now, and when i say it i mean it!
i was ready to go and my worries started to grow as i understood it will be very hard for me to carry all the staff to the ferry - after the only one day shopping i've ended up with a massive suitcase i could barely move, a shoulder bag and a large carrier bag...the gentlman who runs the bussines, same who helped me a day before with the "fridge" problem, kindly offered to help and drived me and all my heavy things to the pier check in point...after all, the stressful and chanlenging trip turned into a very enjoyable one and for this i would like to say THANK YOU for all your help and hospitality. i will recommend the "blue house" and i will be back, next time with my husband and for pleasure only.
