Recent guest reviews

I work in Oban for a week in every month and have done for longer than I care to remember and try to avoid the hotels as much as possible as my preference is for the 4* guest houses that provide a great service for single travellers. On my last visit my preferred locations could not take me so I had a look at and found a reasonable deal at this hotel that showed up well on TA. I had stayed here years ago when it was under different ownership and vowed never to return - never say never. I had a very comfortable stay in a smallish but well equipped single room with a large bathroom and with a single bed that I (6' 1") just about fitted. Breakfast buffet was excellent with a large and varied choice and I was impressed that the fried eggs came soft and not like rubber as in much larger branded hotels. I had one bar meal that was delicious and of the hotel's restaurant standard although, if you are large meal inclined, you may need more than one course. The staff were extremely polite and very efficient and the room was fresh and immaculate. In common with all the hotels on Corran Esplanade parking on site is at a premium but on road parking is generally available although this may change if the Council gets its way and extends the yellow lines. The only downside was the slow shower and the lack of ventilation in the bathroom but this can be encountered in the majority of hotels these days. The only solution to a mist free mirror for shaving is to leave the door open let the steam invade the room and mist the window. At £60 per night the hotel is well worth a try.

Overnight stay for 7 tired bikers! The hotel itself has seen refurbishment in places and looks to be an ongoing project. We had 4 twin rooms to the rear of the hotel which looked to be recently refurbished and had whirlpool baths which were a nice touch and would have been used if we had stayed longer. The bar and lounge area are modern and pleasent. Overall the hotel is very clean and well presented. On arrival we recieved a warm welcome from the reception staff who worked together well and one also ran the bar. The lady on reception could not do enough to help and not only reserved a table in a local resturant but also found a local garage open on bank holiday monday which had a replacement battery for one of the groups motorbike! The staff at breakfast were friendly and helpful and we recievced a nice farewell. In all we would have gladly spent a few more days here but other comittments prevented us from doing so!

My boyfriend booked this hotel for easter weekend as a break for us. From start to finish we couldn't fault anything about this hotel. We were met by the friendly receptionist as we arrived and she checked us in and made sure we got parked ok. Parking could be increased as it is very tight and not many spaces. The room was gorgeous with a view of the bay of oban. The bed is very comfortable and bathroom very clean. The breakfast provided is also brilliant and cooked freshly to help yourself. Can't wait to return to this hotel in the future and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in oban for a break.

Stayed recently for 5 days. From the warm welcome from reception staff till the farewells, our stay was fabulous. All the staff from management to waiters & waitresses were all very well mannered and could not be more helpful. We must single out Sonya who made our meal times more enjoyable with her banter. Breakfasts were well cooked and plentiful. There was a wide and varied menu to choose from. We ate dinner within the hotel on two evenings. The menu was again varied to suit from burgers to fine dining. We were not disappointed on either occasion and approached the chef himself to congratulate his skills. The ambiance and decor was stunning. The views over the bay outstanding. Our overall experience, having been in many, many hotels worldwide was that this small 'family' run hotel is up there with the best. You would be daft to stay elsewhere whilst in Oban.

It is not a fancy hotel, but i makes it up with its charm. We had two rooms facing the bay, highly recommended, with great views. The service was great and the rooms very comfortable. The breakfast had the usual fare and was adequate. We definitely stay again if in the area.

I was there for one night during my trip around Scotland and I found this lovely victorian hotel perfect. It is lovely inside and it has a great view on the bay. My single room was small but comfortable and clean. Heating, hot water and wifi worked well. Breakfast was buffet style, with plenty of options. They also serve tea/coffee and toasts to your table. Staff was very attentive and helpful. I would definitely go back!

Spent the day shopping in Oban and then looked for a hotel and found the Queen's Best Western. We were given a room with a view of the water and a fancy Jacuzzi tub with colored lights for 65 pounds. There was a very good breakfast included with our room. This is a very pretty city. We walked the streets both during the day and evening. We only spent one night and ate dinner at a nice restaurant/bar but can't remember its name.

We have just returned from a 4 day stay at this hotel, our party of 4 have nothing but excellent praise for the hotel, facilities and most of all the staff. The rooms we had were clean, spacious, comfortable with a sea view, all we expected from a good hotel and certainly value for money.. Breakfast had pretty much everything you could want but if not you only have to ask a member of staff and they will accommodate, on several occasions we asked for extra coffee and toast and it was no trouble at all. The hotel was full as was the dining room at night so we choose to eat in the bar, it was the same menu as the dining room and the menu was varied to suit everyone The staff were all very helpful and friendly, we couldn't name just one as they were all excellent. We look forward to our next visit and hope it won't be too long till we return.

We arrived and were warmly welcomed by the receptionist. After going to the room i was bitterly disappointed. It looked into a wall that had algae on it and a broken down pipe was leaning against the wall. I went down to reception and politely asked if we could be moved. This was not a problem and we were given a beautiful room overlooking the bay. The hotel was excellent, housekeeping was excellent, breakfast was excellent and service was excellent. We will definitely be back.

Lovely hotel was given an upgrade to the front overlooking the bay, breakfast was excellent plenty of choice staff were very friendly and helpful highly recommend a visit. Also recommend ferry trip to mull very cheap.
