Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Good value, central hotel
This hotel offers very good value and is well located in Oban. The owners are very nice and helpful. There is a friendly and quiet bar there. It is not a fancy place but it is clean with good amenities for the price. I have now used it twice and certainly intend to do so again. Very handy for train station and ferries.
