      Booked last minute, as only place that allowed dogs. Never again. Room was tiny, filled with old furniture, an electric heater from the 50's no PAT test sticker. The en suite , enough to say I left with out showering. Bed pushed up against window and rattled off the wall when sat on! Small window that did have spectacular view of harbour. Wallpaper torn and very dirty, paintwork chipped carpet just not good. Left without having breakfast so can't comment on that. Did not use any of the amenities

    • Horrible

      This hotel might be the worst I've experienced in Scotland, if not world wide. The room we were allocated was one of the last available and apparently was pet friendly. You could feel the springs through the bed, there must've been a problem with the cistern in the toilet, the noise all night was awful and made sleep impossible. There was no staff around in the morning to tell - not surprising. The halls walking to the rooms smelled repulsive. Left Oban the next morning, scarred.

      This hotel needs totally cleared and refurbished. Bedroom was filthy and bathroom was DIY disaster. TV was old and didnt work. Furniture needed thrown out and staircase an accident waiting to happen. Never went to pool etc as after seeing state of hotel gave it a swerve. They will not refund your money either and take no notice of complaints many people complained but were just ignored

      Myself and a friend stayed here for one night recently and that was quite enough. The room was grubby and uncared for, the chest of drawers was broken, the TV was one of the tiniest I've ever seen, the electric heater didn't work, the bath was very dirty as was the rest of the bathroom. We ordered fish and chips in the bar which was straight out of a freezer pack and very unappetizing. About the only saving grace was the breakfast which was efficiently served, hot, and good quality. However all in all I won't be returing and suggest you don't either.

      Room 27 This hotel is the grubbiest hotel I have stayed no money has been spent on it in 30 years the toilet took 6 pushes of the Handle to flush the beds were terrible hard as a brick head boards that I dare put my head on for fear of catching something the carpet smelt it was something from the tip the hole hotel is in a time warp the pic speed for them selves. That fold away bed needs to go to the tip. I am home now and will be going for a shower with some VIM.
