Fodor's Review

This handsome, historic building dominates the main road in Oban, offering comfortable rooms, some of which (in the front) have sea views. This is an old-fashioned hotel, which means that you share a bathroom with other guests if you stay upstairs in the original building. If you'd like your own bathroom and a more peaceful room, ask for a studio unit behind the hotel. Downstairs is the pub and restaurant, so you don't need to go far after a few drinks or to have breakfast in the morning.
