We stayed here 2 weeks ago. Very nice room with view of marina. service was nice, friendly and helpful. We booked a table for 8pm by the window in the restaurant. The food was very nice and tasty. We did not bother with breakfast the next day as we got up late. We were still offered tea and coffee as...

I stayed here just for the one night before the early morning ferry and was impressed. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, food and accommodation both hit the spot. This is just a couple of miles outside Oban and perfect for anyone heading over to the Isles.

Beautiful setting and the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Our room had a very small television that could not be watched from bed and the wi fi signal was very weak. It was a convenient stop for us on our way to Mull . Breakfast was good but the evening meal was disappointing.

These guys are trying really hard to make everyone's stay special. It started when we called to make the booking when they just couldn't have been more helpful. Everyone working there is a character and you can have a good laugh with them. We didn't see the rooms as we stayed in a very nice suite, needs a little bit...

Stayed an overnight in this hotel before catching the ferry to the Isle of Coll next morning. Room was average. The bathroom had a foul smell in it constantly and the back of the toilet had a leak. Found an old dirty toothbrush beside the sink. Would not stay here again.

We booked this hotel as it was one of the only hotels with vacancies (last room) during peak season. We were so glad we did...not much to look at from the outside but we were in for a pleasant surprise. Rooms were clean and comfortable, the hosts and staff were friendly and courteous but it was the food that was...

If you stop in the marina only go to the bar and resturant as a last resort. They treat people from yachts as second class citizens, the proprietor is a female version of Bazil Faulty and rude. The food is mediocre, the service is poor and if you dare to complain you are shouted at by the owner. Who said...

Stopped off here on the way to Eriskay. We arrived late and departed early to catch the boat. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Because we were leaving before breakfast time they made up a little packed lunch. Many thanks would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

We booked 2 rooms here for one night and were all very pleased with our stay. This is not a flash modern hotel but it has something feelgood about it. The rooms are a bit dated but comfortable enough for our one night stay. The bar is comfortable with prices not too bad. The hotel is only a 5 minute...
