We have been here loads of times in the last 25 years but i reckon this was the last .Overpriced room ripped sheets and unattentive staff in the bistro . I heard an elderly lady ask for another glass of wine from 15 feet away yet 15 minues later she had to ask again for the young guy to oblige. As for the food ,it used to be great now its just okay . Its a great area and has great memories for us but i reckon we will just head to Oban next time

This hotel has bags of character & fantastic staff. Breakfast was good & staff were very attentive to our children who were treated to hot chocolate. Our room was clean (double bed & bunk beds) and our children loved the soft bears waiting on their beds! However room and en-suite (bath only) are in need of an update. This combined with lumpy mattresses and insufficient water pressure to run a bath sadly mean we won't be back.

Got rooms at this hotel last minute & what a fantastic deal we got !! Rooms were spotless as was whole of hotel. Travelled with family & we all agreed. Could NOT fault any part of hotel, rooms, staff & food were all of a high standard. Only 5 mins from Oban & its on the waterfront ! Loved the hotel & we will definately be back. We had the four poster & big round bath (room 43)

Room Tip: Pay a wee bit extra & get one of the "deluxe" rooms

hi , my stay here was a big let down , i think it was because the last time i was here i had a very nice room , this time it was an awful box,... with carpet in the bathroom and the same wallpaper on the ceiling as the walls . it was fairly clean but a hundred years out of date and worn out . the food was very good but there was a great mix up when it came to prices ,even the staff gave up and admitted we had been overcharged they said its a minefield pricing stuff every day it is the old lady that does that ......... the prices in the room info book are not what the restaurant charges you and that includes your breakfast... the old lady offered to refund us after we pointed out to her she was overcharging everyone , she also hinted to me that they get enough business without people like me stirring things up ....so if you are happy with all this strange goings on with prices then go ahead and try room 31 etc ...ps after spending £26 on food they debited my card for £43 saying there is a minimum spend....no joke

12 of us stayed here for 2 nights on a stag weekend and fishing trip and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The rooms are spotless and well equipped. The food served is wonderful. I had a truly exceptional piece of hake on my first night followed by a tender and tasty fillet steak on the second night.

The bar lacks a real ale on hand pump but serves a good selection in bottle.

Breakfast is served from 8am and has a wide selection with the quality being good.

Good parking and situated aprox 5 miles out of Oban and overlooking the beautiful Loch Etive.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hoterl on 1st floor give a good view over the loch

We have just arrived home from a weekend at the Falls of Lora hotel, and honestly wish we could have stayed on. Absolutely nothing to fault. Please don't believe any bad reviews you read, obviously the complainers will never be satisfied with anything. Well worth paying a visit.
