Just returned from a 6 day 5 night trip to The Alexandra Hotel, Oban. After reading some of the reviews I was very apprehensive about this trip. I personally thought it was marvellous. Yes it is regimented, yes you have to use hand sanitiser all time and yes you are a long time on the bus, but the system works...

This was a short (5 day) break with Highland Heritage and from beginning to end I could not fault the friendliness and efficiency of the staff - particularly in the hotel, but also the coach driver (Gavin). Nothing was too much trouble for them and the meals were all tasty and quickly served, despite a very full dining room. It...

This is a very tired hotel and certainly does have the Scottish experience. I was expecting Scottish accents, Scottish décor and Scottish hospitality. During the day, you can't contact staff, bars are not open and if you need to phone for assistance during the night you will have to use your own phone as no phones in the room. No...

This is a strange review because it was actually my parents who stayed here, and they loved it, the food was great, the trips good value, and the entertainment was good. I was staying at another hotel a few doors down but was allowed to spend the evening with my parents, as they enjoyed the entertainment there. And were staying...

We went on a Turkey and Tinsel tour with Highland Heritage which was tremendous value and great fun. As others have said, there are a couple of downsides, doors are locked at 11.45 and there’s no wifi in the bedrooms, but apart from that, we really enjoyed our trip (and weren’t up at 11.45 to get locked out!) Our room,...
