5/5 Excellent

Breathtaking Oban Oasis!
The Drury is, in a single word, spectacular! We could not have been happier with our stay in this gorgeous and elegantly furnished mansion, located directly in the heart of beautiful Oban, with territorial views of the entire town and harbor below. From its private car park to its hot tub, playroom, terrace, entertainment systems and chef’s kitchen, The Drury provided phenomenal value and comfort. Every one of the many rooms was elegantly decorated in modern, uncluttered furnishings. This place was a lucky find for us, and will be at the top of our list of best places to stay, for our inevitable return to Scotland. One additional note, for those interested in history: The Drury put us within a short drive of Kilmartin Glen, where sites spanning over 5,000 years of human history are concentrated and easily accessed.

4/5 Good

Nice house. Lack of communication leading up to our stay. Repeated requests for a guest list I had already supplied. However when there was an issue with some stains after our stay both owner and agent were happy to email regularly. I had requested a late departure from the owner but the caretaker was surprised to hear this when I mentioned it as he showed us around. Luckily he was able to accommodate this.

Huge, Clean, Quality House in Great Location
We booked this property for a reunion with friends. The house was much bigger than I thought it was going to be and the overall condition was very impressive. Gregor, the house manager, was very helpful and informative. Overall, this was a great stay and we are already making plans to return next year.

5/5 Excellent

extremely well appointed and immaculate
my group visiting Oban stayed at the Drury. The place itself was lovely, the caretaker, Gregor was friendly and very responsive, and the views were stunning. Plenty of comfortable sitting space for everyone. Also, a short easy walk down into town (down a bit of a hill that you of course must walk up on the way back)
