We though choosing a chain would be safe but it was disappointing. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food at dinner was average. The eggs and bacon from the buffet were cold but the next day we ordered smoked salmon and scrambled eggs from the menu and it was excellent. Our room was tiny, we had one small shampoo and one bath gel for two We left a bit of bath gel and it was not topped up when the room was done. There was no fridge, no dressing gowns ,no water.

A lovely hotel overlooking the water. Good size room with very comfortable bed. Very helpful staff, good breakfast and a very good evening meal in their restaurant. We had a window table and it felt really special to eat and look out as the sun set over the water. Free wifi on the ground floor level in the lobby and lounge and dining room.

Ok so Oban is a pretty setting however the Queens would not be my first choice. We arrived in two cars needing secure parking, however the staff took most of the spaces and we were left to park in a public car park half a mile away. In fairness the reception was warm and helpful if not that we could not get an early breakfast as we needed to get the 7:30 ferry to Craignure, we were offered fruit and hot drinks to take with us. It's a basic hotel that serves a simple purpose, beds are ok and bath... Read more

I was pleasantly surprised by this Best Western in Oban, Scotland. We generally stay in locally owned and operated hotels and stay away from chains, but l can recommend this Best Western. It is nicely located a bit outside city center, so it requires walking to the pier and shops, but it is very doable. They offer two restaurants for dinner (a casual pub and a nicer restaurant) and both are good. Breakfasts are good as well. The rooms are small, tidy, clean, and the bathrooms are fine. The best ...

If you're on the mature side, don't want to hike a half mile to your car, or don't want to drag your luggage up stairs, you might want to give this hotel a pass. Parking is a big problem. They have more than 40 rooms but only about 10 parking places. We had to park a good distance down the street behind a church and walk to the hotel in the rain. The only way to get street parking is to end your day early. If you need accessibility, definitely give this hotel a pass. The elevator is up a fligh... Read more

Located 10 minute walk from Oban harbour on the seafront, and with limited parking. Average size double room at the back of the hotel with restricted view of the sea. However, the room and bathroom were furnished to a very good standard. Unfortunately breakfast on the second day was disappointing as they ran out of three main ingredients and the waiter was somewhat brusque when this was pointed out. At £150 per night we felt it a bit steep!

1 night stay in Oban that was booked at last minute. Hotel is a 10 minute walk from the main town and overlooks the sea. Our room was ok but didn't have a sea view but was clean and tidy. Breakfast was standard fair for Scotland. I can see that car parking could be an issue if you arrived late as very small car park for size of hotel. However there is on road parking that can be used as well. Oban is well worth a visit.

Breakfast included here and I would find it hard for it to be beaten. The room was very clean and the facilities great. The staff were friendly, a very pleasant experience. Best Western has gone to the top of my queue and I will be seeking these hotels most definitely ahead of any Premier Inn.

The hotel is satisfactory and could be graded as 3.5 rather than 4. Accommodation is satisfactory bur parking is a problem unless you come before 5 pm and not take your car out again. We ended up using taxi in the evening to go into town. The staff at the reception are helpful and friendly. The staff in the restaurant , for breakfast , are excellent and the breakfast more then satisfying as they do have a good variety on offer. The elevator is on the 1st floor and hence one has to carry the lugg... Read more

Had an overnight stay at the hotel. Checked in late and out very early. The staff were excellent. Very friendly and helpful. The night porter could not have done more for us to ensure we had breakfast and made our early departure. The room was functional and very clean. Only downside is that the hotel is starting to look a bit dated inside.

Disappointed I'm a diamond member. No upgrade.. Poor service. No local staff. None. Food okay. Bit slow. Cider pouring looking awful. But they still sold it. Despite the staff having a good moan about it. Don't sleep beside liftshaft. . Very noisy..

It was ok, but nothing particularly special. It is walk-able from the train station, but you will probably prefer to get a taxi (available from outside the station) if it is raining/you arrive late/ you are not very mobile. It's about £5. Room small, but acceptable. Good to have tea/coffee making facility in room. Shower could have been a bit more powerful. We did not bother with breakfast, as there are plenty of places in town. Decent food (burger was good) if it's too rainy to go out of... Read more

Great cheapish hotel. Nice and clean. Food in the restaurant was lovely. Slightly understaffed but it was end of season. Great location, clean bedroom and bathroom. Jacuzzi bath was a nice touch but very noisy. Ideal for 1 or 2 nights after Craggy Island triathlon!

Very comfortable hotel. Good food and service. Rooms clean and comfortable. There is an annex which if you are unlucky you may not have a sea view. The position of the Hotel makes up for it though. No more than 10 minutes walk to the centre of Oban. Try the distillery tour - should not be missed!

The Queens is a relaxing 20 min. stroll from the station along the sea front . Staff were very welcoming. My single room was just fine, working TV and a bath with shower. All clean and tidy with room serviced every day. Breakfast was self service with all the usual choices. I was seeing friends so did not have dinner there but the menu looked good. The view from the front of the hotel is across the lovely bay to the islands. Will be back on my next visit to Oban.

We came to Oban especially to dine at EE-usk, our favorite restaurant on the West Coast. We missed that chance since we would have lost our parking space, The description says parking is "first-come-first-served" but we arrived shortly after noon and were asked to park on the street. We finally got a place at the hotel an inch or so from an ivy-covered wall but were subsequently "penned-in for the evening. Other guests found spaces at dinner time. We were further stressed by a poorly cooked... Read more

The hotel is situated right on the front overlooking Kerrera. It is nicely furnished and decorated downstairs and has a cosy and friendly atmosphere, helped by the relaxed and friendly staff. We had a few drinks and a mixture of small menu items rather than a proper meal and enjoyed everything, other than the chips that were a bit overdone. Breakfast was also enjoyable. Our room was in the extension at the back of the hotel. It clearly wasn't built to match the style of the original building an... Read more

I am wary of Best Western hotels that I am not familiar with, however, we were pleasantly surprised by the Queens. The staff in particular were friendly and welcoming, the hotel itself (I think recently refurbished) was very clean and well laid out. The room was a bit small but warm and clean with plenty of power points. The breakfast was perfect. We also sampled the bar menu and had an excellent meal.

My wife and I booked three nights on a bed and breakfast basis and overall, the Queens was a pleasant place to stay. It is only a brisk ten minute walk from the town centre or if that's too much for some people, the local bus stop is almost at the door. The standard of housekeeping is excellent and all the areas we were in (including our room) were all spotlessly clean. Our room was on the smallish side but the double bed was huge and very comfortable! Some minor criticisms would be the shortage... Read more

I booked here based on the reviews, saying it had been done up and was worth a visit. The service was first class and my room was immaculately clean. Maybe not the most up-to-date decor but bathroom and bed were both spotless. Really comfy bed & a window which opens - hurrah! What stood out for me was the quality of food in the main restaurant. It was hands down the tastiest meal I've ever had in a hotel! The halibut was exceptional and if I'd been staying another night I'd be ordering it again... Read more

Booked with this hotel for the first time and stayed last night. Chose it because it is dog friendly. Nothing was a problem on arrival and went to room to find a lovely dog bed, bones and bowls to make our wee dog feel at home too! Room was clean and comfortable. There was a lot of choice for breakfast and staff were friendly. Looking forward to returning.

Got a good deal from this hotel by booking direct. We booked on the Friday morning and checked in on Friday afternoon for two nights B & B. We arrived to a very pleasant welcome from Peter at reception. Everything was absolutely perfect. Fault the breakfast at your peril !. Loch Fyne kippers to start with followed by Sausage, bacon, egg, black pudding etc. A very enjoyable two day break.

This is a very comfortable hotel with an old-style feel about it. The room was very comfortable, the hotel lobby was a great place to read and the bar felt warm and cosy. The only failing was that when the shower temperature was increased to an acceptable level, the pressure dropped to a trickle in Room 8. Breakfast was great and the table I was shown to had a stunning view of Oban Bay. Much enjoyed and would recommend.

One night stay only , double room incl. breakfast . Positives include good location , parking , warm , clean & tidy. Hotel a little tired but still good . Bar area needs better lighting , too bright & cold with the main chandeliers , some table lamps & floor lamps would transform the room into a cosy bar area where you would sit & have a few drinks. Room clean , warm & comfortable with a jacuzzi bath which was a pleasant surprise. Breakfast average though staff pleasant & welcoming. Why must... Read more

We stayed for three nights and this would undoubtedly have been a five star review if it wasn't for the appalling customer service I received when checking out. Let's start with the good. We arrived very late after an awful 8hr drive through rain and snow to a very warm welcome. We were given our key cards and directions to our room, after a couple of wrong turns we made it to our room (this was not the fault of directions given it was our tiredness not quite understanding) The room was a reas...
