    Stayed for 1 night with family. 2 x 9yr olds not aloud in bar to play pool after 8.30pm! Not very welcoming and rooms definately not worth the money. Handy for Weatherspoons for food and drink. Oban is beautiful just dont go to this hotel.

    Very welcoming friendly place. Kimberley is a major asset. Her local knowledge given freely is a bonus. The suggestions re where to eat, places to visit were all spot on. Sheena has a great asset in Kim.
