    • Older travelers

      THe food was of a high standard for this grade of hotel

      The bedroom shown on the web site is not near the quality of the actual rooms .The rooms are very much smaller.

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      The location and delightful ambience of the lounge and its view of the bay. The helpfullness of the staff.

    • Single
      8.0

      Within walking distance of railway station and ideally located for my needs - service at Oban Cathedral just two minutes away.

      While it did not apply to me there was obvious confusion about car parking in the hotel grounds which was not mentioned on the booking site.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      Travelling round Scotland and only stayed one night. Evening meal was very good. Staff very friendly. Did not use any Spar facilities

      Parking is limited and you have to be aware of the small print that states that parking needs booking at and extra cost of £5 per night. Continental breakfast only stated on documents. (Price was highest of all the 18 hotels on the trip and no full cooked breakfast in the price. Extra for Full cooked breakfast on menu was £17 + per person!)

    • Older travelers
      4.2

      the view of oban bay from the lounge conservatory.

      the dark, musty room with view of the carpark. no food after 8pm. the abrupt attitude of certain staff. not one sunday newspaper to be had in the whole hotel.

    • Single
      7.8

      Friendly staff, good food, convenient location, reasonable value for money

      Some of the decor and fitttings are a bit "tired"

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      I liked the relaxed feeling at the hotel. I did not like the hot tub, when the tub switched off we then realised that we were sitting in a tub of dead fly'S. Liked the location of the hotel, the staff were very friendly. The hotel was clean, meals were good.

      As I said above my only real complaint was the jot tub, it should be covered over when not being used!

    • Older travelers
      5.0

      having a drink any time of the day in the hotel bar, one would always enjoy the magnificent view of the Bay

      checked in at 3ish after a long drive, 1st thing 1st, when I turned the tab trying to wash my hands, it gave me i shock I was holding part of the tab. Then I went to the shower and there was no hot water. Looking out of the window we saw the Roof instead of the Bay. After our sea food dinner and drinking session we moved(with kindly help by Peter the night porter/bar tender) to a room with everything but cleanliness.

    • Single
      5.8

      The hotel was quiet.

      Room was very small and bed not particularly comfortable. No wastepaper basket in room. Service at breakfast was extremely slow. In shower room long wait for hot water to run warm.

    • Single
      8.2

      Nice hotel, nice room, nice breakfast, very pleasant staff.

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      the service from the staff was excellent especially the Polish guy who is employed there. He was very helpful, friendly and efficient

      showers could have been better and bigger

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The location was excellent overlooking Oban Bay and the Sound of Kerrera. Sitting in the conservatory at the front with a drink watching the sun set was very relaxing.

      The bathroom could have been a little cleaner as there was stains on the work top, but it did not spoil our enjoyment.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      the outdoor hot tub was great fun but was let down by the leaking downspout showering constant cold water on to the heads of those in the tub. this leak also created a damp patch in our room which was just under the leak.

      the hotel is looking tired and needs a bit of a revamp, especially the steam room and spa changing rooms where the showers worked sporadically and the floor floods if more than one has a shower due to poor drainage.

    • Couple
      6.6

      The breakfast was very good.

      I found the bathroom a bit grimy espcially the tiles in the shower which was a bit off putting.

    • Single
      6.6

      Room was warm, clean and comfortable.

      Staff - greeted with being told i will have to park elsewhere as other guests have booked parking spaces. I was not offerred the opportunity to book a table for dinner or asked if i wanted a newspaper. When i went to the resteraunt i was told it was fully booked so i could book for an hour later or ' walk into town'. I reserved for an hour later and went to the bar where the service was poor and abrupt. The barman seemed to be more interested in talking with colleagues.
