    We've stayed in the Royal Hotel, which is centrally located in Oban, on several occasions. The friendly welcome, service and location are perfect for us and I would recommend especially to those travelling onward by ferry, bus or train.

    I'm afraid our rooms were very small!! Mine in particular was tiny, but since I spent no time in it at all - I didn't bother too much. It was clean and functional.
