Food was terrible. Location was not to be recommended. In the middle of a back street in the town with constant traffic noise. Overflowing water? drain? in back yard where cars were parked. Had to walk through this to get to car. Not recommended. Only good point rooms were spotlessly clean. Overnight no other option stay hotel. Not worth the price charged better in a good edge of town bed and breakfast. The buffet breakfast hot plate meal was cold and uneatable. Food at night was steakhouse?? chips and whatever. Best thing I liked about this hotel was leaving it.
see above and repeat, Not recommended. Poor value for money
Very comfortable, very convinient
I chose the Rowantree Hotel firstly because it was near to we were attending a function also because it had free off street parking and lastly was within our budget
Stayed in November,very cold outside, but warm and cosy on the inside,Breakfast very good,friendly staff
Fire doors very noisy at night they closed with a loud bang, being a vegetarian would have liked more choice for evening meal
Stayed one night on a driving tour of Scotland. Nice location just up the street from the distillery. Easy access to the harbor and waterfront. Nice that it has free parking in the back oft he building. Free wifi. Clean rooms with decent space. I would stay here again.
I was in the room above the bar/breakfast area and I could hear when it got really noisy below me.
We had a problem working out the heating system just as well it was a mild night also tv took a bit of getting our head around not the usual free view choices either! But on positive note we had a warm welcome.
The smell on the stairwell !!!!!!
That it had car parking? A must for me
That when booking on line ,The hotel checks rates that have been agreed and don,t wait until the customer is at desk waiting to pay the final bill .And duration as the cleaner knocked on our door and asked us to leave.When we had one more day to go.
Good location. Friendly atmosphere. Good breakfast and service. Comfy bed. Full sized kettle in room for tea.
Only one low level side-light in our room. We had to put 2 side tables together on top of one another to raise up the light for reading. The room needed another sidelight, one on either side of the bed. The shower was difficult to control - lots of fiddling to get right water temp and it kept reverting to bath.
relative closenesss to other facilities, restaurants and tourist attractions. car park available
a lift would have been helpful to us but there was only 2 floors
central position in town and helpfulness & friendliness of staff
parking not great and room price a little high compared to similar standard elsewhere
very well situated in oban . The room which we stayed in was moden and very clean.The hotels food is really good and the breakfast is fab .
the only complaint i have is that because the room floors are laminate , it meant that we could hear the people above us every time they walked across their room. i know this may sound petty but at 2 and 4 in the morning it becomes an issue .
The staff were wonderfully friendly - we were really impressed, very helpful. When we had to leave early on a Sunday morning they checked we were up and opened the restaurant up early to make sure we could have breakfast. Really helpful.
Limited car parking.
The hotel is ideally located in the centre of Oban, close to the Distillery, shops, coast, everything. It has a free car park at the back which is great in the centre of the town. The rooms were excellent.
This is our second time at the Rowantree hotel we find that it suits our needs fine .The staff are friendly and helpfull, the rooms are spotless and the location is central for everything that Oban has to offer. Will use this hotel again.
Friendly stafff and comfortable rooms. Relaxed atmosphere.
No lifts (disabled wife struggled with stairs). Situated on noisy one way street used by commercial vehicles and cars both day and night.
