The Palace Hotel is in a great location in Oban. Central to the harbor and the city itself. Lovely family run hotel with a very friendly responsive staff. Bedrooms are nice size and the bathrooms look to have been recently renovated. Some rooms have water view, ours didn't but not a big deal to us. Anne was wonderful and very accomodating. We were very happy with our stay here.
