The Royal Hotel, Oban
Very Good8.0
We had a large room on second floor overlooking the Main Street. Room was clean and comfortable but carpeting could be updated throughout hotel. Hotel is popular with tour bus groups, but breakfast room is large enough to handle everyone. There was entertainment in the hotel lounge including bagpipes, when we were there.

Hotel rooms not air conditioned
Hotel has a great location & limited parking. Unfortunately it was very hot in Oban & the room was not air conditioned. The window was stuck open & the traffic noise was very loud & continued all day & night. Food in the bar was good as was the buffet breakfast.

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...
