Weather was terrible. Ferries weren't running. We had to find somewhere to stay. We liked the look of the palace from the outside with it's perfect position overlooking the harbour. We were given a large room at the front with ensuite bath and shower. We...More

Hotel location is great, and parking is free from 6pm to 8am. Room was on the 3rd floor with no lift but I knew this in advance. More expensive rooms have a nice view of the harbor but the economy rooms have no view, room...More

If ever there were a misnomer, then "Palace" is it. We only booked this place because it was the only one with availability. Oban is a popular destination in August it would seem, so beggars can't be choosers. As far as Oban goes, the location...More

The good bits first. The hotel was located at the centre of things in the middle of Oban. The views from Room 9 of the harbour were great. Not much noise too. The staff were also helpful. The bad news- we had to park about...More

Thank you for your message. Unfortunately there is no lift in The Palace Hotel. Most of our bedrooms are on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors - there are roughly 100 steps to the top floor. There is no private parking. The... More
