Appalling Hotel
Unless you ask they doing clean the rooms Had to request toilet paper The room was very small - I was staying 4 nights with my five year old son and it was very difficult in a tiny room that they couldn't be bothered cleaning. I actually cleaned it myself. No cupboard for clothes just a few small shelves in the tiny wardrobe No chair or desk - I have seen these in the low budget hotels Travelodge No bath Even the shower was too small The bathroom door was ridiculously heavy and I had to be careful to hold it whenever my sone went in or out No meals in the hotel other than breakfast No parking Breakfast barely adequate and they had no idea what a vegetarian was On the only occasion they pretended to clean by straightening the quilt it still had crumbs on so they clearly didn't do much The quilt cover was not on the quilt - they couldn't be bothered to do this it seems. The wifi didn't work on one day On the day they pretended to clean my sons teddy bear went missing - I searched thoroughly. It was definitely there on Saturday but gone by Sunday. it is only worth a few pounds but that's not the point because he has had it since he was 5 weeks old and he is five now and it was his favourite teddy bear that went everywhere with him. On the first night I was unable to reduce the temperature in the room despite following the instructions because it always returned to a default. Consequently I had to open the window to be cool. After this it would not shut be

Central Oban
Small room but functional, small corner shower, breakfast baked eggs and/or cereals. Central location. Parking 300 yards away for £5 per 24 hours. Good for a one night stay.

Nice little hotel and good value
Only downside of our stay was the lack of a cooked breakfast (apart from baked eggs). Staff are very nice and the room was very comfortable

Brilliant choice for an overnight
Comfortable, good hard mattress and lovely pillows. Excellent breakfast for travellers. 3rd floor room was a bit of a climb, but kind young receptionist hefted our cases.
