Quick stop-over in Oban, this was a great price for a very central hotel. The woman who was runs the hotel is lovely. The attached quiet pub is really nice as well.

Good view of ferry
Very good room, comfortable bed, en-suite good. Very convenient for ferry, train station and town. Couldn't hear much noise from ferry terminal with windows closed, but could when windows were open. This didn't bother us. We slept well.
