Good Hotel Guide Review

There are ‘dramatic’ views of the ferries on Oban bay from Leslie and Margaret Crane’s ‘excellent’ hotel, to be sure, but there’s much interest within the Georgian stone mansion as well, say guests this year. ‘We enjoyed a relaxing break. The standards are high; the staff are very friendly and helpful; the food, from hearty Scottish breakfasts to well-balanced dinners, is first class.’ Take coffee or tea in the ‘spacious’ lounges and well-stocked bar; on a fine day, lunch on the terrace overlooking the harbour. Bedrooms may be snug, but are ‘well appointed’ in country house style, and stocked with bottled water, fruit, cookies and coffee. Go for one of the best, with binoculars to take in the ‘wonderful’ views. In the elegant dining room (white linens, fresh flowers, candles), long-serving chef Shaun Squire ‘makes good use of local produce’ in his daily-changing menus. Typical dishes: quail’s egg, crisp Brie, asparagus; veal cordon bleu, Orkney Cheddar, smoked ham, olive oil mash. Lighter meals, perhaps West Highland fish soup, are served in the bar. The harbour and ferry terminal are a stroll away.

Guest comments

'Excellent Scottish country house-style hotel overlooking Oban bay and the regular ferries to and from the Isles. Wonderful views from the well appointed bedrooms. Spacious lounges and bar with equally dramatic views. First class food, from hearty Scottish breakfasts to well balanced dinners making good use of local produce. Very friendly and helpful staff.A few minutes' walk to the harbour and ferry terminal, and the station. A high standard hotel for a relaxing break. ' - - June, 2015
'Ideally located near the ferry terminal, but completely quiet, with fantastic views towards the harbour and the city front. Generous free parking. Stylish interior, charming staff and most of all: excellent dinner (+ wine list) … obviously THE posh place for dining out in Oban. Our room was a bit cramped, but others seem to be larger. All in all an excellent experience. ' - Christian Bartoschek - December, 2013
