Small quaint hotel, staff very pleasent , rooms very clean, full English breakfast was good ,not much other choice if you don't like the fried stuff. Overall a pleasant weekend break. Rooms a bit pricey. If you like a small bottle of water by your bed best get it from the corner shop £2.50 in this hotel. 5* prices.

So came here for a relaxing mid-week get away with a friend. Arrived at this well-groomed hotel site to find more of a BnB interior rather than hotel. Greeting was delayed and somewhat brief on arrival. A few instructions were mentioned but an information card would have been better. We took the tiny lift to reach the room. The room... More

It's not really a hotel, more of a B&B. Which is something I hadn't appreciated so there were some real disadvantages, that affected our stay. Namely: 1. No air conditioning and the rooms are very small and stuffy 2. No WIFI in room 3. Lots of stairs so really it's not suitable for someone disabled. There is a lift but... More

Like a bunch of swifts or swallows me and my family return each August to the Oban and each year we receive the same high personalised service from Vin, Georgie and the staff. That's why we come back - simple as that. My wife and I have a very comfortable room, looking out to see with a balcony. Imagine being... More

This was our second visit, as a group of 5 adults, to The Oban, and our stay was just as good, if not better. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable with sea views, and the breakfast was excellent. We can highly recommend this hotel.

Had such an enjoyable stay that hopefully will return in the future. The room well appointed & comfortable. The staff were at all times extremely polite & helpful. The location ideal for exploring the town, just a 10 minute walk to centre.Will recommend to others.
