      Location in Oban, rooms well cleaned, option to have meal in the evening in the hotel, entertainment in the evening, member of staff at the time of check in.

      There should be an option to not have a 3 course evening meal, there is a bit of a let down at breakfast as the tables are not being cleaned and I was seated at a dirty table cloth table, breakfast items were running out. The checkout member of staff did not ask about my stay and did not communicate that well.

      it was in a good location for both the ferries to the Isles and the railway station

      the rooms were very small with not much storage

      central location with easy access to the ferry service,food and service was first class.

      car parking was the only let down.

      The complimentary 'extras' were very generous

      Well the parking was not good.

      The staff were pleasant and the Scottish music night on Tuesday was very entertaining. The room was clean if small.

      They only had heating on for two hours in the morning and evening, even though the weather was cold. My travelling companions were freezing for most of their stay, although a portable heater was eventually provided.

      The hotel's location is very good although the local council should consider zebra crossings for pedestrian safety. Staff were in the main very friendly and helpful especially the Leeds United supporter at reception.

      Floor boards and windows need urgent attention. Communication between reception and kitchen could be improved. On the last day of our stay we had to catch a train at 8.10am to Glasgow and requested an early breakfast. The breakfast arrived too late and had to be left half eaten. The breakfast and service on the other two days was very very good.

      The breakfast was good.

      The room smelt very fusty and damp when I went in and I realised after I had taken my shoes off that their was a damp patch on the floor and it was the wet carpet that was smelling.

      It was quiet and relaxing, and the staff were friendly and allways willing to help.

      Would have liked to be able to see out of the windows, as the were not to clean. and better pillows would be appreciated.

      convenient location, good breakfast, pleasant staff

      The room (317) was cramped,particularly the bathroom and the bed hard and very uncomfortable. Entrance to the room claustrophobic and the floor sloped

      Only there for one night and breakfast, though friendly, helpful staff. Room and bathroom clean. Well placed within town.

      Bedroom & bathroom in need of overhaul; wallpaper peeling and window too heavy to open for fresh air. First impression was very poor until realised it was clean. Okay for 1 night but wouldn't take my family there.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      The breakfast was good, hot and fresh, with a fair choice of things to eat. Staff we dealt with were friendly.

      Room was very tired and had sloping floors which was very off putting especially as we were sober!. Shower stuck in the on position which meant we had to get a change of room late at night . Pillows very flat and soft so a restless night all round.
