Comfortable Stay
Old Coaching House, reception took our bags to the room which we didn't expect. Food was excellent Our only complaint was the shower had very poor pressure I'm glad we didn't want to take a bath as it would have taken all day to fill.

Lovely old country hotel in a fantastic setting, full of character. Owners were very friendly and whisky selection was top class. Breakfast excellent with best bacon I've had in a long time. Bedroom was fine and had a great nights sleep. Will definitely stay again. Great vfm😀

Not bad place to stay
A quiet place to stay to explore the area with very friendly staff. Décor a little faded and the floorboards "squeak".

not usual
It is a kind of central meeting point for local folks The food is excellent

3/5 Okay

Basic hotel, used it as a base when sailing
We used the hotel as a base when going on a tall ship for a couple of days. The room was basic, two single beds, and a very old TV. Tea and coffee in the room, which was an advantage . Didn't order breakfast at £10 each. The staff were helpful with directions to laundry facilities close by. It's about 30 mins to Oban and nothing in the town apart from the hotel for eating places, so not terribly convenient , although we were able to leave baggage there when we went on the ship. Staff were friendly .
