The Manor House was built in 1780 as the Duke of Argyll's Oban estate. Great consideration has been given to preserve the elegance, charm and atmosphere of its past. There are eleven tastefully decorated bedrooms each with en-suite bathroom. Informal lunches are served in the Bar and lovely Drawing Room which, like the beautifully restored Dining Room, have magnificent views over Oban Bay, the adjacent islands, the mountains of Morvern and Isle of Mull.

Where do I start? Firstly the hotel is gorgeous, located overlooking Oban with the majestic McCaigs tower in the distance. We dined there on the evening of 19th Jan as a treat for my belated birthday. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely man behind the bar, so looked after

Stayed here for a night and had such a lovely time! The history of the house oozes through every pore. The staff was ever attentive and our breakfast felt like high tea! Sat in the lounge and bar areas and soaked up the hospitality. Great view from our room and a great location.

do they offer a shuttle into town?
No but it is only a five minute walk. If you are arriving at the train station with a bag, there will be cabs available.

The town centre is 5 minutes. The train station a bit closer.

Yes, are there lots of steps?
There are steps because some rooms are on an upper floor. I think you can request a room on first floor.

Thank you for your enquiry. I can appreciate that comfort is very important. The beds that we use in the hotel are high quality Hypnos Heritage Deluxe. The mattresses are specified as 'Firm/Soft'. The mattress construction is made up of a firm base with a softer pillow top giving you just the right amount of support and comfort. If you would like to know in more detail, please refer to the Hypnos Beds website. If you would like to know any more information about The Manor House, please do not hesitate to contact us. I hope this has been useful information and we look forward to seeing you here soon. Kind Regards, Nicola Mckie.

"Some rooms have lovely sea views."
