Staff were friendly and courteous, hotel was good location. Restaurant served nice food.
My room was a front of the hotel and was very noisy from early morning with passing traffic.
very friendly food and the rooms
Friendly, helpful staff. Good food. Bit dark into the corridor to our room till I realised that the lights were automatic. Room was very clean and kept this way during our short stay. Would go back there again.
The only downside was the heat in the room. As ours was at the front, opening the window allowed the noise in.
Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Facilities (particularly the free car parking) were good and the buffet breakfast was very nice.
Rooms at the front of the hotel face out over a main road so can be noisy at night - ask for a room at the rear.
Very welcoming atmosphere
Only Channel 1 available on TV in room No lift to 1st floor /no disability access to shower etc
Our room on the second floor overlooking the street was good: extremely well designed and furnished. It would have helped if there had been guidelines available for the tv - and even the way the plugs worked in the bathroom! We very much appreciated the chance to park our car at the back while we visited Coll. Thank you.
Unfortunately the beautiful new bath had no handles and was quite difficult to get out of! No lift to second floor made taking our luggage up to the second floor quite hard. Unfortunately it was a very hot Saturday when we stayed and therefore the open windows made it extremely noisy. Breakfast OK - no brown bread available however.
Hi we stayed for teo nights staff were very friendly and curtious breakfast was excellent although the toaster was sliw but a minor niggle clean tidy and we would stay again with. No hesitation thanks for a lovely stay mr mrs brown room 203
Staff were excellent and a good central location for Oban
Laminate flooring in the bedrooms were very noisy. This meant that you could hear everyone else in their rooms at all times. The bathroom door in our room did not close at all!!
Facilities in room except television
Television in room. Television was unsuitable. Too difficult to find controls on top of television. No leaflet provided to explain the television controls which were very difficult due to being hidden behind the television. No television text service available. For the price paid, would expect television with digital text system on BBC channels.
Clean modern rooms, interior decor & upkeep & car park
appearance of hotel from car park at rear is poor
Hotel on-site car parking in town centre. Good breakfast.
Poor standard of Freesat television reception. Poor quality of shower unit - low pressure and low flow.
Good clean and comfortable and convenient
The Staff were all very helpful and pleasant.
There were no parking spaces available on arrival though the man on duty at Reception did remedy this and got a vehicle belonging to somebody at the Scottish Energy Shop next door to move it. Our Room floor had not been swept/cleaned prior to our arrival. There were no Real Ales on offer at either Bars. Our Room fronted onto George Street which was noisy and we could hear people walking over floor above our room.Perhaps you could consider upgrading the soundproofing above the ceiling and around the window area in this room to remedy these problems..?
location! clean & tidy & cosy too! :)
a bit pricey but cosy & great location :)
I was only there a very short time - leaving on the early ferry the next morning so I did not have the opportunity to form a complete opinion. For a one night stay it had everything I needed, staff were welcoming and efficient (including the night porter - surprised to see me up and about at 05:00).
