“Absolutely beautiful!”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just left this stunning apartment which is ideally located on the Oban esplanade with gorgeous views of the sea and surrounding area. We had a great time visiting the small island of kerrera and ganaven beach as well as walking around and enjoying Oban . The apartment itself is beautifully decorated was like a home from home and we were made to feel very welcome . Would highly recommend definitely going back.

“The Alexandra Apartment is absolutley beautiful and I can't wait to go back !!”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I stayed in Alexandra Apartment with my partner, our three year old little girl and my parents. We arrived on the Friday afternoon and left on the Monday morning. We didn't want to come home. The apartment was even more beautiful than I imagined. It was very spacious and modern and everything was just lovely. It has such a lovely feel to it - very warm and welcoming. Each room has its individual touch of Scotland to it. We didn't have to worry about bringing bed sheets and towels because they were all included, which was great. There was a lovely bottle of prosecco waiting for us when we arrived which I thought was yet another lovely touch. I could go on and on about this apartment but my comments just don't wont do it justice - you really do have to see this apartment to experience how lovely it is. My little girl just loved it. All she wanted to do was to say in the "holiday home". We went out and about around Oban i.e. took a ferry trip to Mull and went on the open top bus and she loved them both but as soon as they were finished she just kept saying she wanted to go back to the "holiday home". She loved it just as much as we all did. One of the many lovely things about this apartment is the location and the beautiful view from the living room and front bedrooms. We will definitely be going back, hopefully very soon. If I could give this apartment a higher scoring than 5 star, I would :-) Oh, and last but certainly not least, the owner was brilliant. I was able to contact her by email or by telephone if I had any queries and she responded almost immediately. She was lovely and extremely helpful :-)

“Fantastic stay in Oban”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I would like to express my thanks to Hazel in first instance.

We, 7 people travelled all the way from West Yorkshire, England to Oban and our journey time was 9 hours in total and we were tried. As soon as we entered this property, we felt re-energized within next 10 minutes because of its lovely infrastructure.

Location & infrastructure.

Alexandra apartments located at the centre of Oban city centre. Being located in 2nd floor, it offers fantastic scenic view with loads of fresh cool air. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 double bedroom, 2 single bedrooms - 8 people can stay easily. We were group of 4 adults with 3 children and we enjoyed the space to max. Every room has been decorated in such an excellent way which will adore you for sure. It has a nice big kitchen with stove, refrigerator, washing machine, oven, Mircowave oven and a range of cooking appliances. Beds were neatly maintained and we were provided with fresh bath towels, fresh linen.

Hospitality.

From the day I booked this apartment, Hazel extended her help to all my queries. We were welcomed with a bottle of an alcoholic fizz drink and Hazel left few chocolates in each room whilst kids enjoyed it very much.


Alexandra apartments is located in centre of Oban city centre which Is beneficial if you have plan to roam around isles through ferries. We booked three isles tours with Staffatours where the boarding point is just 10 minutes walk away from Alexandra Apartment.

There are plenty of restaurants(Chinese, Fish & chips shops, Indian, Mexican) with just 10 minutes walk away from the apartment.

We stayed for 2 nights and we enjoyed our stay very well. We all left with such beautiful memories and we are now already missing Oban and Alexandra apartment.

We will again book with Alexandra apartment soon.

“Beautiful , Peaceful, Loved it”
Reviewed July 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

What a fantastic apartment. Everything that you would need plus a lovely bottle of bubbles and some yummy orange chocolate :)
The view is spectacular, the apartment clean and fully equipped and a very welcoming feel about it. We stayed here with extended family from Perth Western Australia and everyone was extremely happy with the apartment. Hazel was friendly and very accommodating and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alexandra Apartment to my friends and family.

“Stunning Apartment with scenic views of Oban Harbour and beyond”
Reviewed July 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Visited this apartment with my girlfriend and her parents and we were extremely impressed with our stay here.

This is a large traditional Scottish tenement style apartment which has been renovated to a modern spec. The decor has a modern Scottish feel and is extremely comfortable and homely.

The flat is extremely spacious with large entrance hall leading to four large bedrooms, three double beds and one twin room which would be suitable for large families or a group of friends. The beds were extremely comfortable and we got good sleep on both occasions, despite being on a main thoroughfare of the town at the seafront. Linen and blankets all provided.

There are also two bathrooms, one with walk in shower and the other with shower over a bath which gives the option for relaxing in the evening as well as making morning time easier for large groups.

There is a large kitchen which appears to be extremely new and plenty of essential utensils and crockery provided. There is also a large fridge freezer which is handy for longer trips as well. There is also dishwasher which is handy to have when away on holiday. The kitchen has a large dining bench which makes meal times easier as there is plenty of room for large groups.

Living room is extremely comfy and homely and is centered around a traditional decorative fireplace.

The apartment looks directly on to the harbor and out to the Isle of Kerrera and there is a fantastic view of the boats moored as well as being able to see the Calmac ferries sailing in past the window. Amazing views from the room at sunset as well. (See photo attached.)

Communication with Hazel was fantastic, she answered any questions very promptly and gave lots of helpful information about the apartment and the area round about as well as making us feel at home. The process for pick up of the keys was also very easy and flexible as well as we were arriving later in the evening. We found the brochure left with info about Oban and the surrounding area very useful as well.

I would also recommend taking advantage of the seal boat cruise which leaves regularly from the pier across the road from the apartment. We took the trip which lasts an hour and is £10 per adult which took us out to the other side of the Isle of Kerrera where the seals were sunbathing on the rocks and seen the new pups. The boat trip also includes information from the captain about the area and some of the famous vessels moored in the harbor as well.

All in all a fantastic trip of which the accommodation was a massive part. Would recommend this apartment to friends and family and anyone who is looking for something a bit different from the hotel experience. Would definitely stay here again.

“We were made to feel so welcome!”
Reviewed June 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

From the outset we knew this would be a special place to visit - Hazel (the owner) was lovely and on the ball with emails and info, and very knowledgeable about the town and surrounding area. And then to find a bottle of bubbly waiting on our arrival . . . so nice! The apartment was well appointed, spacious and clean, the beds comfy, and the views glorious. It was close to shops and restaurants and within walking distance of the train station. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a great stay at this apartment with the girls. This is a truly generous apartment, enormous bright elegant rooms with charming original features. We all appreciated the complimentary bottle of bubbles. Nothing at all to fault about this place. Would go back again in a heartbeat.
