My partner & I stayed here for 3 nights and both of us can't fault it in any way. Check in was quick & easy. We had a room with a partial sea view which was a bonus as we only booked about 2hrs before arriving. The room itself was spacious, very modern, extremely clean & warm. The jacuzzi bath was a definite hit too, after getting caught in the rain & was a great way too get the heat back into us. Separately, of course. Breakfast was plentiful & had a fair choice too. We ate dinner there twice & that also was exceptional. The service was quick, efficient. We would both like to thank ALL the staff at The Queen's Hotel for their kindness & hospitality during our stay. Keep up the great work. I would certainly come back to this hotel & highly recommend it.

The hotel looks nice from the outside and has a small car park to the front. The hotel is on the esplanade, looking out to the water so is a good location and roughly 1/2 mile walk from Oban town centre - a nice walk! And about 1.5 mile walk in the other direction to Ganavan Sands beach - another nice walk! Check in was pleasant and quick - our rooms weren't ready as we were early but the receptionist was friendly and polite, even making us a cup of tea. The common areas were clean but very dated and cold. It felt a bit damp and was quite dark. Our room was quite far back in the hotel - again clean but small and very dated. Bathroom was very basic, small and shower wasn't very powerful - but fine for a night's stay, nothing luxurious. The breakfast room was again in need of a modern update. Table service was nice but they didn't have any of the options I wanted for breakfast they had on their menu including fish which was a real shame. They didn't provide water and selection of fruit etc wasn't very good. When they did bring out the meal they included beans which I asked to exclude, they took it away but just scraped it off the plate and came back with a dirty plate. Staff were lovely throughout and check out was quick and simple. A wee refresh would help this hotel greatly as it's in a fab location but I would rate it as a decent 3 star hotel, not a 4.

Fully enjoyed my trip and will be back. The hotel had everything I needed, check in was simple, and so was check out. I didn't eat in, so can't comment on the food but I fully enjoyed my visit and I will be returning to meet up with family members soon.

Stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights in between Christmas & New Year. Lovely warm, clean room. Only ate breakfast in the Hotel but had everything you could want, staff were very attentive, quick to remove dirty plates etc. The only down side was that there was not enough parking, we had to park down the road not really a problem for us but could be for older people or those with a family and more luggage.

Overview: The hotel is clean, friendly and the breakfasts are great. We stayed for three nights before new year. The car park is small but we got a space each day. The staff are all friendly and helpful. Our room was standard and just large enough. Good sea view. The power baths are great! The wifi is really good throughout. There was a little noise from other rooms but not enough to be a problem. The breakfast choice is excellent. Form fresh fruit, to full cooked options, as well as options for kippers, fish and eggs cooked to your choosing. All followed by a variety of pasteries if yiu still had room. Really good quality. The location is good being 5 minutes walk out of the centre right on the sea front. All in all a great stay and good value...

Arrived on the 27th December for an overnight stay at this lovely hotel. Allocated room 27 that had a sea view and was perfectly pleasant. Bright,clean room with a comfy queen size bed and flat screen TV. Very clean,modern toilet with a jacuzzi bath and overhead thermo mixer shower, not a problem with hot water and the jacuzzi was a welcome bonus. Great nights sleep and up next morning for an included breakfast. Full Scottish or cereals, toast,pastries etc. Lovely food,cooked to perfection and constantly replenished. All in all a perfect base in a great Scottish seaside resort. Totally recommended.

We stayed the night after our son booked the room for us, We love Oban and always stay over night when we get the chance. The hotel was fine, Staff very helpful and always smiling. We did not have a meal in hotel as we had table booked down on pier. But the breakfast was one of the best I have had in a best western. The bacon, sausage, eggs etc etc all cooked to perfection. Plenty of choice to for the cereal brigade, fruit, and bagels etc. All in all a good stay and would book again.

Stayed here for 1 night on the 21st Dec.Car parking right outside,limited spaces but as it was very quiet we had no problems. Lovely lady at reception,quick,easy check in.Our room was a superking double, pleasantly surprised at how lovely,fresh& clean it was,great value for money.Everything you could need, coffee,tea facilities etc,TV, jacuzzi bath was a bonus. Only downside was that the walls are quite thin,could hear next door&the lift, didn't keep us awake though. Breakfast was lovely,huge selection including kipper's &full Scottish. Definitely return to this hotel, excellent value,clean&very friendly.

First that bad points - rooms are small, slightly tired and dated. I had no hot water for my shower. Good points - the hotel is in a great location with impressive sea views and spotlessly clean. Terrific breakfast and lovely staff who couldn't do enough for us.

Very nice hotel. Rooms were comfortable and clean plus the staff helpful and friendly. Its probably a 10 minute to the edge of the town but its an enjoyable walk due to the scenery. Well worth a visit.
