    Fabulous

    Comfortable older-style hotel, very clean, very pleasant and friendly staff, location handy for the centre of Oban and the ferry terminal. Excellent buffet-style breakfast.

    The hotel is an older building and could do with some refurbishment, and though the centre of town location is handy, it also means that you get any noise from local pubs etc.

    Very good

    The hotel is right in the centre of Oban with good access to town and ferry port.

    Our room was a little out of date, the ceiling had had a water leak and was stained, some plaster missing, the bathroom fittings were old too. No parking on first night, limited car parking space not really highlighted.

    The staff was very friendly and I was delighted to find a fruit basket and some hot chocolate in my room. The room was really comfortable and there was a good choice of food on the breakfast buffet.

    Fabulous

    The town centre location made the hotel a convenient base for getting to know oban, its shops, pubs and restuarants.

    There was a shortage of private parking at the hotel.I did find a free car park a short walk from the hotel, but this was not suggested by hotel staff.

    Fabulous

    The Royal is in a fantastic location, right opposite the train station and ferry terminal and near the waterfront, shops and ameneties. The hotel is an old fashioned one and has a friendly staff. The breakfast - a buffet style affair - was excellent with a wide range of hot and cold items in a large room.

    The room was a little on the small side and the floors sloped around! If you've just come off the Mull ferry you might think this is still your sea legs coming to terms with being on dry land. We didn't mind this as it at least showed a bit of character but I imagine some people wouldn't like that.

    location, price, buffet breakfast, friendly staff at reception, room spotless, nice public areas, general good value.

    very very very slow lift! could do with some modernisation in terms of decor but this wasn't a major issue for me.

    The breakfast was OK, although I did have to wait for eggs to be cooked and more bacon to be brought out.

    Tv and handset were filthy! Badly cracked tiles in bathroom floor. Toilet rocked because it was not properly fixed. Shower: Never did get the right temperature. No grab handle over the bath - nearly fell because I grabbed the toilet! Taps looked worn out and were on the wrong sides (standard fitting for blind people) (I'm not blind!) Only 2 hangers in the wardrobe. The whole room looked 'tired' and in need of refreshment.

    The Hotel staff that I spoke to were efficient, friendly, and responsive. The breakfast was a buffet and there was a very good selection and standard of food. When I pointed out a couple of issues to the staff the Manager dealt with these very well.

    The Hotel is a bit 'tired' looking, it could do with a refurb. The beds are small compared to most hotels that have king size beds.
