Negative Reviews

Location may not suit

A number of previous guests have noted that this property is further away from the centre of Oban than they would have preferred. It is easily accessible by car but will likely prove to be too far of a walk for many people.

Some noise

Guests who were allocated a room at the front of the building note that there is some traffic noise to contend with. Others mention that the floorboards in the hallway creak and this has proved annoying as people have passed through the area.

Bathrooms could be better

While generally finding the rooms comfortable, guests have reported that the bathrooms could be better. Guests have found the bathrooms are cramped, also noting examples of poor maintenance.
