Good3.0 / 5
Hotel stay was nice, once I got into room, but they still have the skeleton keys which to be honest was annoying. It was a little run down but clean and the service was great. It seemed pretty empty though which contributed to an eerie haunted hotel feeling but inside the room it was fine. I did stay in the off season which is why it was probably so empty, but honestly struggling with the skeleton key at after a few pints, at night, in an empty hotel was definitely workout on the heart-

A regal stay at the Palace
The Palace was considerably lower cost than the other options in the area. At first I was a bit concerned about this, but on the past couple of nights we literally only got to the hotel after dinner, slept, showered and departed. We didn't need anything special. The Palace didn't really offer much more. But the bed was very comfortable, the shower was nice and warm, the location was absolutely amazing, and the internet was the fastest we'd experienced in Scotland. If you're only looking for a place to sleep the night and don't need anything more, this will work quite well. Oh, I would suggest earplugs, however, since the rooms are a bit old and you can hear people heading up and down stairs. It's not too bad, but if you sleep light you may notice this.

Perfect location, very clean
We arrived late on the train and could see the hotel when we stepped off- awesome location! Our host was so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Pointed us right to some close food, and was always available and helpful.

Unassuming hotel in great location
We spent 4 nights in Oban, using it as a base for travel to the islands as well as exploring the town. Traveling by bus we appreciated the hotel's great location right on the harbor near bus, train and boat terminals. The hotel is a hundred years old and reflects its era. The owners have done some extensive upgrading of bathrooms, and new paint and paper in the entry and stairwell. The desk is unmanned, but a bell brings immediate assistance. Beds were good.

Poor1.0 / 5
Not recommended at all
Hotel is in an excellent location with magnificent views of the water. That is all it has. It has no elevator and the rooms are either 3 or 4 floors up. The ceiling in the bathroom was covered in mold. The carpet was disgusting. The bed had a plastic mattress cover under the sheet so you crunched. The bed springs had sprung. I barely slept. There was only metered parking, so we ended up leaving our suitcases in the car and just grabbing what we needed overnight. I wish we knew all this before booking.
