    the accommodation is fairly basic but I thought it was clean enough and comfortable enough. Very handy for the ferries if you are just there for a single night. It qualifies as an experience but it is really quite palatable

    I stayed here with my girlfriend on a trip of the west coast and this was without doubt the worst place I have ever had the misfortune of spending a night. Between us we have stayed in straw huts in the Philippines, hostels in Bangkok...More

    It's easy to spend big to stay in Oban, and also to have to stay in an inconvenient part of town. If location and value are important to you then I'd certainly recommend this hotel. You won't get five-star luxury, but the bed was comfortable,...More

    Positives: cheap, excellent location in the town centre. Negatives: Filthy. Sheets covered in stains, duvet covers not washed, paint peeling off the walls, old, run down bathroom. Above a busy pub so generally noisy. Glad we were only there for one night!!!
