          Lots of stairs (not much you can do about that)

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Room clean and comfortable.

          Not impressed by the by the excessive credit card booking charge of £6 on a room charge of £85

        • Older travelers
          3.8

          The room was not clean. Rain came in the window and dripped down the walls. The bed was barely sleep worthy. The shower was nearly non-existant. Oh, and the "free" internet was not free and was not available even if you paid, since the connection was so poor. We left early.

        • Older travelers

          View over harbour and Oban Bay

          Very old fashioned could do with modernisation.

        • Older travelers

          Quaint, old fashioned with friendly hospitable staff

          Fantastic view over Oban bay from our 4th floor room.

          Far too much £120 (no breakfast)for a very basic room.

        • Family with children
          5.4

          The bed

          Place totally run down, need of a good clean ... no wonder this was the only accommodation available in Oban for the festival weekend. Paid a lot of money too for the rooms ... never again

        • Family with children
          6.2

          Great location for exploring the region. Lots of restaurants/services on doorstep. Friendly and helpful staff. Tea-making facilities in room.Room was well cleaned daily.

          The family room was too crowdwd for us. Bathroom also small. Price was the main problem 200 stg per night for room excluding breakfast.We had only one breakfast, service very slow so we went locally after that.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          It ws clean .. plenty of hot water..

          Overpriced - £120 per night breakfast not included .. for an attic broom cupboard with a damp patch on the ceiling 5 floors up (no lift or offer of help to carry bags) - . £5 per hour for wi-fi when every other hotel we have stayed at offers this service fee of charge. No parking available except in local authority park at 80p per hour. A bucket to catch rain drips in the corridor near our room reamained there long after it had stopped raining and constituted a trip hazard. Not happy about fire evacuatipn procedures .. no fire escape only exit via front door 89 steps down via central wooden staircase. Vey tatty furniture covered inadequately by cheap throws.

          Proximity to ferry terminal. Residents' lounge overlooked harbour.

          Single room was tiny and oppressive. Impossible to spend any time other than sleeping there. Hotel charged full amount of my stay to my credit card on day of booking, although I wanted to pay in cash.

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          The locations was fantastic, and the breakfast was most enjoyable and had a great view fro the breakfast room. The bed was ok and the doona was good. Great hair dryer with extra long cord - yeah!

          90 stairs to our room, bathroom ancient and the toilet seat broke completely whistle we were there. Very basic for price - too basic.

        • Family with children
          4.2

          Excellent location and lovely views of the bay from our bedroom

          We were unimpressed by our room. The single bed rocked, there was a huge wet patch on the external wall under the window, the exterior paintwork was peeling, we could not get TV reception in our room or communal lounge, the shaver had a loose connection and my Dad couldn't get the shower to work. We stayed in 3 locations in Scotland during our week and given that this was the most expensive, we were surprised to be charged a further £8.50pp for a mediocre and limited breakfast on top. I don't eat meat and regard this amount as excessive for egg, toast, orange juice and coffee, given that we had already paid more for the 2 nights than we did in Glasgow and the Trossachs.

          it was clearn and friendly

          it did not give you information about meals, you had to ask about them

        • Older travelers
          4.4

          Location was excellent.

          Bed was very uncomfortable, like sleeping on a brick. Shower would not mount so had to be hand held. No lift. Expensive, but I presume the cost was mainly for location, view from our window, and the fact that it was peak period.

          very friendly would have liked a lift would stay again
