I had the pleasure of staying at Elmbank Garden Apartment for 5 nights in January during a visit to the west coast of Scotland. The apartment is bright and spacious and comes with FREE parking which is a huge benefit for Oban since everywhere is paid parking. Everything seems very new as I believe it just opened for business very recently. All shops and restaurants are only a 5 - 10 minute walk away or there is a local bus that stops right outside every 30 minutes. I have stayed in Oban a few times and many of the properties have been a bit tired and in need of a freshen up, so this place was like a breath of fresh air. I will definitely be booking this place in the future.
