    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.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Loved the owner and the support we received. Only concern is that the room was on the top floor of a 5 storey building, and there was no elevator. The owners son and husband were very helpful at bringing our bags up and down though, so not a problem unless you have trouble with stairs

    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.

    The Palace Hotel is in a great location in Oban. Central to the harbor and the city itself. Lovely family run hotel with a very friendly responsive staff. Bedrooms are nice size and the bathrooms look to have been recently renovated. Some rooms have water view, ours didn't but not a big deal to us. Anne was wonderful and very accomodating. We were very happy with our stay here.
