The Royal Hotel, Oban
Very Good8.0
We enjoyed our stay here. The hotel has a great bar where you can get food most of the day and is comfortable to settle for a while, including an outside sitting area. There is a full service restaurant, and all of the food was good. The employees were friendly and very helpful. The hotel is probably ready for a bit of an upgrade, but it has a wonderful feel of being a step out of time.

You could do much better for the money.
Elevator wasn't working, room and bathroom not very clean, couldn't find service during breakfast, and check in service was not very friendly. And, Wifi not available in room, only in lobby unless you paid 5Pounds per day.

Quaint, cozy little place with great sea view. Age gives it character, but it's also showing its age. Particularly in creaky floorboards...

It was fine. The facility is older. Nothing was bad about it, it was fine for an overnight stay.

Great service at front desk!!
The ladies at the front desk were awesome!!! They could not have been more helpful!! The hotel is old and doesn't have air conditioning, but it does have an elevator!!! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here, too. They also graciously stored our luggage as went to Duart castle for the day.
