Stayed at The Manor House hotel for one night and cannot rave about it enough. The room was ready early so we were able to settle in and leave bags. The room itself was a delight with comfortable beds and a spacious bathroom. The view was amazing - overlooking Oban bay - you felt you were on a boat! The...

My wife and I held our staff night out at the Manor House and combined it with a night's stay. The hotel is beautifully maintained and furnished to a very high standard and is a wonderful place to unwind. Gregor, the Manager, is clearly passionate about the hotel and it's not hard to see why the standard of food and...

Such an amazing place, cosy and quiet. The look of the room was very cool and typical, decorated with good taste. It was the best hotel of our trip. The breakfast was PERFECT with an amazing view on the bay. The living room was very nice with a fireplace. A very relaxing atmosphere. We LOVE this place

This hotel was a great find in Oban. While it is just a short walk to town, it is far enough out that you don't feel like your in the city. I would shy away from the "Garden Rooms" as they are really a "Road Room" lookin out onto the street not more than fifty feet from the front door.

Romantic treat at the end of August. The weather tried to ruin our plans, but the hotel was an authentic gem, fortunately ! Arrived at the hotel quite early, we left our bags and we were absolutely impressed with the staff friendliness' and the common areas- the young man we dealt with was a star. We checked in around 5...

Three nights in this small, cozy, very comfortable hotel. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Rooms are decent size and nicely decorated, fine bathrooms. Water view rooms are worth the extra. Guests meet in the bar before dinner and again in the drawing room after dinner. The in house restaurant is very good for all three meals. Nice selection of...

I am very sorry we were not able to accommodate you properly. While I will have to learn from the manager how it happened that our system would allow us to send you an email confirm for a different room than that in the booking file, there is no question you should have been notified as soon as the mistake...
