Very good 8.0
Good location but do not expect too much
This is neither Palace nor hotel. In reality it is a B&B. But room was clean, comfortable and relatively big. Bathroom had a bathtub. We had a room on a top floor with magnificent view of Oban waterfront.There is no lift so one has to climb quite few flights of stairs but it worth it. Summing up, a good place, worth the money if one does not expect high end hotel. No parking space is a real drawback as it is very hard to find a place to park a car in Oban.

Fair 4.0
clean and comfortable bed but that's it
As a new traveler to the UK I was a bit surprised at the price of accommodations and probably gambled a bit more than we normally would have. The Palace does not have elevators and you don't know that when you book. A group of 3 couples stayed in 3 rooms an ours was the only one that had a nice layout. Our view was old, rusted scaffolding that I'm sure was there forever. I am not sure when the last time the bathroom floor was swept let alone mopped. The lady that checked us in was nice but honestly this place could use some TLC. On the upside, the bed was clean and comfortable, and the central location is fantastic.

The room and hotel were clean and in good shape. They say renovations are going on but I didn’t see any construction mess. The staff were helpful and polite. The breakfast was delicious and great way to start the morning! Only thing I didn’t like was the pillows. The rest of the stay was great!

sweet dreams at the Palace
My wife and I really enjoy staying at the Palace.Friendly family hotel and we catch up on the latest doings of their dogs and horses every time we stay.. Comfortable bed good tea bathroom could be upgraded (seems to be happening for other rooms) Fine view over the harbour from front room and dining room. Fine breakfast with very friendly service even produced warm milk for my wifes coffee. We travel all over the world and are always happy to return to the Palace in the centre of Oban. Close to shops and the bus and ferry terminal.Excellent value for money.

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.
