    Quaint and stylish hotel. Very friendly and efficient lady at reception. Room was at top of 3 flights of stairs so not for people with any mobility issues. This was fine for us - simple, clean and bright room. Lovely shower and bathroom. Great view of oban bay. Room not huge but nice for us. Ceiling was low at one side of bed but wasnt a problem.

    Nice modern rooms with stylish deco. The staff was very helpful. Ask John for your very own personal whisky tour in his bar, that was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Scotland!

    Stayed here in March. The rooms were great and clean. The bar was good with a nice cosy fire and plenty of whisky and gin to choose from!! The hotel owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately our trip was cut short due to the coronavirus situation so we only stayed 1 night instead of 2. However, we will definitely be visiting Oban again to do and see the things we had originally planned and wont hesitate to book this hotel again! Have also recommended it to our family and friends should they ever visit oban!

    We all loved this hotel as it is tucked away behind the parade in Tweedale Street. Do not be put off by the rather plain exterior! It is a delight. Beatiful modern rooms decorated to within the parametres of a Boutique hotel in classic darker hues with lovely lighting that lifts the interiors into wonderful blues greens greys and blues.. Spotlessly clean and all windows double glazed. Just needed a shelf in the hanging space and a few more hooks in the bathroom. The bar downstairs as you would expect offers an eclectic selection of Whiskies the sublime to the ridiculous at £360 per nip for the 25 year old Balvennie! We stuck within the affordable and enjoyed a nightcap and a chat with the owner before going to bed and enjoying a comfortable duvet as well as an excellent nights sleep! We would happily book this hotel again well priced with a good breakfast and a small courtyard weather permitting.. wonderful!
