We have been in Scotland for more than 14 days. And the best seafood/ food we got at Oyster Inn!!! Delicious scallops with chorizo, nice decoration and done as it should be. Excellent salmon, fresh veggis. The lamb loins were perfect, wonderful juice. These cooks do a great job! And the service was very nice, competent. High recommendation to go...

Wife and I fancied a little treat and having passed Connel countless times in the past on our way to Oban on holiday, decided that we would give the Oyster Inn a try. It would appear to have had a somewhat chequered history over the last few years with a few changes of owner/management/staff and having read all the previous...

We spent a great 3 nights here in September and were made to fell really welcome. This hotel not only allows dogs to stay but they don't give you a shabby (not that they have any) room like some Oban hotels give to dog owners. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we had was spacious, clean and...

We stayed in self-catering accommodation close by, but used the Oyster Inn most nights. The food was great every night with a marvellous fish pie, Fish and Chips. Well kept beer and very friendly and helpful staff. We ended using the Oyster every night because it was so good. Highly recommended.

Stopped here last week for 2 nights. The bedrooms were clean and modern. The staff at reception were pathetic, clearly unfit for purpose. The WiFi wasn't working and the chef did not appear at all. The menu shrank from a couple of dishes not available on Saturday night to practically nothing available on the Sunday night. Checking out was the...

The Oyster Inn is a restaurant and small hotel just past the bridge at Connel, Oban. It is painted bright blue so you cannot miss it and inside the public decor is a nautical navy and white. We stayed here two nights at either end of a trip farther north to the Outer Hebrides. The food in the restaurant was...

Decided to visit again after a 10 year break and was not disappointed. The room was comfortable and the en-suite shower room clean with a good sized cubicle, only two points let the accommodation down one being the lack of sound proofing(could hear every sound from adjacent rooms) and there appeared to be a faint unpleasant smell(stale cigarette smoke ?)....

My partner and I are huge fans of the Oban area and holiday at Tralee Bay in Benderloch near Connel several times a year. We had never dined in the Oyster Inn before but had heard good reviews from the locals so, having time to kill before catching our 12:30 bus home to Glasgow, decided to pop in for breakfast....
