I stayed in this hotel for two nights during business trip. It's very nice place, in picturesque location, very nice staff and delicious food. The hotel room was clean and well kept. It was very cold these days and the room did not heat up properly, but there was additional portable heater and additional blankets in the room to cope...

Had a one night stay in this good value Hotel - we ate in the restaurant, the food was excellent together with stunning views out onto the Loch, & the friendly staff make it a great overnight spot. Only downside I m afraid our electric shower was really poor - it the guys were to take this 'small ' criticism...

We used this hotel as a stop over while travelling between Skye and Stirling. The location is very convenient to Oban, which is worth a visit, but I wouldn't stay in the city. Our room was on the top floor with a beautiful view of the river; there is a circular stair going up two flights which is difficult to...

We spent 1 night here after getting back from Isle of Mull. The staff was very accommodating on arrival and showed us our room and a few key items to note about the shower and local information.

We spent an overnight at the Lochnell Arms in Oban on our way to the Highlands. This property has recently changed hands. It was a bit tired and could do with some upgrading. I know it is a very old building. The room we had was bright and clean. A new shower would not go amiss. These are only cosmetic...

While the room was clean, the shower had terribly low water pressure and would switch constantly from really really hot to freezing cold. There is little to no staff around so it feels very impersonal. Breakfast was lacking; the sausage we ordered never came out.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The view from our room was stunning! Had dinner at the restaurant downstairs and that was so handy! Breakfast was great with many choices. Parking was convenient with lots of space.
