Falls Of Lora
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Connel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2013

If you need somewhere to base yourself whilst visiting Oban & the islands, I would definitely recommend this place!

We stumbled upon it by chance after searching tirelessly around Oban looking for a room for a few nights. Be warned that 60% of the accommodation viewed in Oban was of hostel standards with city hotel prices.

The Falls is full of character, the staff were all wonderfully helpful and welcoming. The standard double had fantastic sea views, good quality of cleanliness in all areas and the breakfast was fit for a king.

Will definitely returning asap!

Room Tip: The hotel has amazing views over the Loch. When booking make sure you ask for a sea view!

Upon arrival to the hotel, it seemed clean and charming. It does have a certian appeal to it. That was about as far as I got with good impressions. Our room was definately decorated like the early 90's, However it was relatively spacious compared to others we've stayed in. There was trash left in the bin and FECES and URINE left in the toilet!! When we notified the front desk, it seemed like they didn't care and we were more of a bother to them. Price was resonable but I would have expected at least a CLEAN room.

Loved it. Stayed here with the family for two nights when we found the uniqueness and charm of the hotel such a pleasant change from the glass, chrome and plastic of chain hotels. Food was superb, staff lovely and we will definitely pay a return visit. Thank you

Had the pleasure of dining here with friends. Superb food beautifully presented and lots of it. Very pleasant staff, would highly recommend the meals. nothing was any bother for the staff. I would most certainly visit this establishment for a meal if we are passing that way. Very lovely flowers leading to door of hotel, very colourful and well kept.

Room Tip: Never stayed s we were only passing.

we did not stay in the hotel so cant comment on the rooms but we did visit the restaurant and i have to say the food and service that we received was great. we have been to the restaurant on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. 2 starters 2 mains and a bottle of wine £45 which for the standard of food you receive is really good value. we would recommend if you are in the area then you should come here for dinner you wont be disappointed.

Only stayed here, because my B+B made an error with my booking, and was able to get me a room here instead. Very pleasant room, restaurant food looked very nice but didn't eat any meals here. All the facilities looked very comfortable, my room was certainly nice enough. The cocktail bar served a beautifully smooth pint of Belhaven too!

This is a pleasant hotel with is set close to the very picturesque Connel Bridge and is about 5 mile North of Oban. The general ambiance of the bedrooms may be a little tired but the public areas are pleasant and in keeping with a traditional hotel of this type and staff were very pleasant.

My evening meal was first class with lots of choice on the menu. Breakfast was freshly cooked and the hotel gets 5* for this acid test!

Nobody is going to pretend this is a top class hotel but it was very nice and excellent value.
