Lots and lots and lots and lots of stairs not mentioned in advertising. Overpriced even if it was Oban

Nice enough but needs refurb
The hotel was clean enough but overpriced for what it was it also could do with a refurb.

Missed the ferry to Mull and made a quick reservation in Oban. Wonderful town and great location for a stay on the water. Ann was very kind and accommodating.

Very good 8.0
Lovely and friendly
Lovely views from bedroom very clean and tidy everything only minutes away from the hotel very handy for train station and all local pubs
Malcolm, gb2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Despite the name, The Palace is more of a B&B than a hotel per se. It's a basic, quaint, family-run property located on the main street, just a 2-minute walk from the station and ferry terminal. Not a bad choice, but I would certainly look elsewhere when I return to Oban. POSITIVES - Excellent location near the ferry terminal and train station. NEGATIVES - No elevator: You may need to climb three floors with your luggage. - No wifi, despite the rather misleading sign on the door. - No reception before 8.00am. - No reception after 9.00pm: So beware if you are arriving on the late train from Glasgow.

Quaint, charming and compact.
Nice, simple but very small rooms. Friendly, convenient and served it's purpose for a 1 night stay.
James, us1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Fine stay
Perfect location and if it hadn’t been a very unusual hot day we’d rate comfort higher. We were top floor with no AC. We’ll happily stay again.
