Could not fault it big portions and good on price. The ultimate burger 🍔 was just brilliant. Will go back. The wife had a chicken sizzler and it looked well tasty. Will try that the next time. Friendly staff and could not have done anymore for us. Just brilliant

We were supposed to stay here either side of a trip to Mull, but due to a medical emergency we only stayed on the way back home (they kindly waived the charge when we had to cancel at no notice)Well situated for the ferry and train station and all other things Oban offers. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Food was...

Great location, couldn't be better for walking round Oban, visiting distillery etc. Car park difficult to get in very busy, once we got a space we left the car for our two night stay. Not very good first impression of the hotel entering the back door from the car park, along a dingy corridor passing the kitchen to reach the...

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel as the staff were really friendly and polite. The hotel was situated in a great location for walking all over location. It had a nice breakfast included in the price and the restaurant seemed to be popular in the evening for food. Room was lovely and cool which was great although our friends had...

We arrived to Owan early In the evening and was a great surprise to discover the hotel In the centre town. Rooms were clean, but during the night not confortable due to the several noises, from outside (employees in the backyard) and In the upper floor. They say you have free wifi but there is no signal Inside the rooms....

My Partner and I stayed at the Rowantree Hotel at the weekend. We checked in around 2:00pm on Friday dumped our luggage and headed to have a wander out as it was such a nice day in Oban. When I returned around 7:30 and went to go back out again I realised that our door didn't lock. I went down...

I am originally from Oban and spent many years there before moving down to Ayrshire. With the beautiful weather we had at the weekend, I decided there was no better way to spend it than to go back home. I travel back to Oban regular but this time I decided to take my two young boys to show them their...

The place is moderately priced, the location is right in the city centre, Once you park you don't need to take the car out for anything - you can walk to Oban distillery, the shops, the restaurants and the bars. There is a lounge on the ground floor, which serves all kinds of beverages.

Hotel is in a great spot in the town centre and handy for everything. Had two of the worst showers of my life there though; water temperature changed consistently and not what you really expect when spending that kind of money. Staff at check in were very friendly and helpful.
