Within walking distance from Oban centre, I was glad to stay here overnight having travelled from the Hebrides. Was able to park at the hotel. The location of the hotel is Ideal for getting in and out of Oban by car. Comfortable room and bed and good breakfast. Really nice staff.

Family group of 8 rented 4 rooms. All rooms were adequately appointed and pretty. Food was cooked to order at breakfast. One of our party has severe food allergies which were easily accommodated. One side of hotel is painted a very bright yellow which seemed a bit odd; however, the interior of the hotel was quite nice. I guess the...

We booked this in advance, we asked if there would be Gluten free bread at breakfast and were assured that there would be and I didn't need to bring my own. At breakfast there was no G/F bread! My Husband orderd the full breakfast but they forgot the beans. The room was small dark and shabby with an uncomfortable bed...

I hope the lack of beans has not required entering therapy for the emotional distress caused, it's very easy to ask one of our waiting staff , who would have brought it straight away, perish the...

We stayed here last week as a stopover before getting the ferry early next morning. The hotel has been updated since our last visit and all is fresh and new. The proprietor is friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The evening meal, although not adventurous, was well cooked and attractively presented. We will be back.

We stayed three nights during our tour of Western Scotland. Our room was large and well appointed. The hotel is situated on the main exit road from Oban but we were not troubled by traffic noise. The breakfast was first class and evening meals are available in the comfortable bar should you not want to walk into the town centre...
