This is a nice inn, beautifully located. Rooms were clean and beds were good. We had booked a package including dinner, and it was a little confusing, and the staff did not know much about the arrangement, but it turned out that it meant that we could eat for GBP 25 each. Food was very nice, and breakfast too. The...

Travelling as a group of four, we stayed at the Oyster Inn for one night en route to the Western Isles. The room was very comfortable and clean with a nice comfy bed. The sound proofing wasn't the best - though that may just have been our room. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We stayed for an evening meal which...

Stopped by for lunch very nice food, friendly helpful staff. Beautiful location also. I was travelling solo but I'm sure I'll be back again,as I'm in the area quite often. Hopefully I can book in overnight next time.

There is a nice bar attached with quite a choice of fine ales. The bedrooms were clean, modern and comfortable and in a beautiful location..Being a blonde I left my jewellery and the hotel...

We thought we had booked a ground floor room with walk-in shower which would suit our disablement, but this room was not of the high standard of the rest of the rooms and was therefore not acceptable. Apparently a mistake was made at time of the telephone booking and it should not have been offered to us. Fortunately the Manageress...

Excellent salmon, fresh veggis. The lamb loins were perfect, wonderful juice. These cooks do a great job! And the service was very nice, competent. High recommendation to go...

Wife and I fancied a little treat and having passed Connel countless times in the past on our way to Oban on holiday, decided that we would give the Oyster Inn a try. It would appear to have had a somewhat chequered history over the last few years with a few changes of owner/management/staff and having read all the previous...

We spent a great 3 nights here in September and were made to fell really welcome. This hotel not only allows dogs to stay but they don't give you a shabby (not that they have any) room like some Oban hotels give to dog owners. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we had was spacious, clean and...
