Old, tired and in need of revitalising

Pros: Location
Cons: Almost everything!
Location: Oban is a lovely spot and allows access to so many options. A "must do" is the Isle of Mull.
This hotel had location ... it was close to everything in Oban. Sadly, that's where the compliments ran out! It was run-down, it was tiny and (compared to the rest of our UK holiday so far) it was over-priced. Breakfast was satisfactory. It appears to deal with budget group bookings but the whole deal does not present well.

Very tired hotel

Pros: Location
Cons: Most things
Location: Oban and surrounds are wonderful
This hotel was in a perfect location ... but sadly, that's where the praise ended! It was a very tired hotel desperately in need of rejuvenating. Our room had a great view, but was tiny ... hardly enough room for the bed. Bathroom and shower were small. Parking was in a public carpark across the road. Wifi was intermittent. Tiniest lift known to mankind ... TWO people was a squeeze! Arrived back on the second night to find our wet towels lying on the floor of the room. Breakfast was quite okay and the staff were friendly enough.

Hello, many hotels in Oban do not have a private car park for guests, also we do not state anywhere that we have a car park. The wifi has since been upgraded and is available all over the hotel. Kind regards.

Nice hotel close to water and town centre.

Pros: Close proximity to everything
Cons: Lift was a litttle small and slow.
Hotel is convenient to railway and bus stations, in the town centre and overlooks the harbour. We found it to be a clean hotel which is in the process of grading. The staff where friendly whenever approached regarding any issues.
