    • Terrible- just terrible!

      Reviewed 28 August 2019

      We booked and paid over 400 for 2 nights in a family room. We were so disappointed on arrival as the hotel is very run down . Our room was dirty, there was a leak in the bathroom ceiling, so they had a bucket and towel under it. The main bedroom ceiling showed signs of previous leaks and everything was dusty. The windows had good views of the bay, but you had to open them as they were too filthy to see properly. We went out for the day and came back to find the maid had not even touched the beds, just emptied the bin and folded the towels. Breakfast was average at best . The grade is 3 star- honestly I dont know how this hotel gets more than 2 stars! Find somewhere else to stay !!

    • Fantastic location - walking distance to everything

      We stayed here for 2 nights. Its a small 3 star hotel in a fantastic location. It definitely needs an upgrade/ facelift especially the tiny elevator. We had a sea view room on the 5 th floor that was lovely. The floor near the bed is lower than the rest of the room so you have to be careful. The bathroom is OK but you need to change from 2 faucets for hot and cold to 1 faucet!!! There are no chairs in the lobby ????

    • Okay Hotel, good location

      Good location in Oban, especially if you want to take an early ferry to Mull. They offer breakfast from 7:30 onwards and the ferry terminal is just down the road. Town center is just a short walk. The rooms were very clean, bathroom seemed quite new. The cot for our little one was a joke. No mattress at all, she could as well have slept on the floor. The hotel itself is not the newest, but it was okay.

    • 50 years past its prime

      Reviewed 15 August 2019

      The Royal Hotel is 50 years past its prime, despite obvious attempts at remodeling including a miniscule elevator. Our room had a wavy floor, uncomfortable beds, windows that would barely open and a bathroom with loose fixtures. The room was clean and the breakfast was very good. But that could not make up for a miserable night. The only parking anywhere was on the street, first-come, first served.

    • Old, tatty and tired

      Strathmore Hotels start putting you hand in your pocket and start spending money on this hotel. It is old, tired and dirty. It needs a major update. It is only the good hearted staff that is keeping this establishment afloat.
