Excellent position

Location: Oban very popular to island hop, it offers great seafood.
Don't do it to yourself- although top notch location the hotel offered only on street car parking. On arrival we were offered an upgrade to our room but it was on the 4th floor. As there was no lift we declined the offer. Just so far to carry our luggage! we spent quite a bit of our time feeding parking meters! hotel was very clean but just had an impersonal feel. An overall disappointing stay at a no doubt shining jewel from a bygone era.

Comment from Hotel Management

We are sorry that our service failed to meet your expectations on this occasion. We are on site most of the day to assist guests not only with their luggage but with help and advice. There are personal photos throughout the building all of which have a story behind them as it has also been our home for almost four decades. The nearest car park is only £5 for up to 24 hours and free parking is available at the door from 6pm till 9am. We are glad that the renovations that we are carrying out did not disturb you.

Cons: Completely over priced.
