              • Older travelers
                6.2

                Breakfast was good

                Parking is unavailable on hotel premises, it is necessary to pay for street parking or pay to park on the train station car park. This will be an expensive add on for people staying longer than one night.

              • Single
                6.6

                Fabulous location. Very good food. Staff were freindly and courteous

                A little expensive for what is a 3 star hotel that needs modernisation. No internet connection which is very dissapointing as i was on business.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                It was a beautiful spacious room/hotel and very clean and comfortable with a fantastic location.

                Car parking was a problem if not expensive. Also, arial cable on TV was broken and could not be replaced because maintenance do not work at weekend and would/could not replace TV with another. I am not a good sleeper so watching TV during night is important to me, so I was very disappointed at this.

                Location

                Hotel staff receptionist, awful, never smiled never said anything, looked like a robot. Disgusting dirty rooms, for 118 pounds at nite really a dreadful staying. Never seen any dirtier glass window anywhere in the world.

                The breakfast

                Double room too cramp, would have made a better single room &glad we were only staying the one night. Window wouldn't stay open & during the summer that is important

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Friendly and obliging staff. A room at the front without scaffolding would be lovely. Highly convenient location. Breakfast good.

                Lack of easy availability of decaffinated coffee and margarine nowadays generally available without request. Poor vegetarian options particularly on cafe menu.

                The room was of good proportions with agood vista.

                The cookeds breakfast, tea and coffee were luke warm at best

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The Caledonian Hotel is in the centre of Oban, close to transport, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions.

                Reminded me of "Faulty towers", with aged building.

              • Single
                8.8

                The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The Hotel is undergoing renovation (June 2011), however it seems almost complete. The building is quite old so the rooms are small, however are perfectly adequate. There was live entertainment in the bar the night we stayed. Free wifi available.

                The shower pressure was extremely poor. The temp was fine, but the water flow was unacceptable. The breakfast was quite greasy.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                The night porter was very helpful and the bar area was good

                Bar staff were poor and breakfast was a bit disappointing

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The hotel was in an excellent location for the rail station and the ferry.

                No parking

              • Couple
                7.8

                The location is so central and handy to everything in Oban. A great location facing the water and a lovely view from our window. A very enjoyable and relaxing sea side break.

                The pillows needed to be of a much better quality and the shower was difficult to adjust, however it was a most enjoyable stay.

              • Couple
                5.0

                The staff were friendly.

                Room wasn't particularly clean and was in a poor state of repair. Bed was extremely uncomfortable.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                We had our dog with us and on arrival at room there were two bone shaped dog bowls and a dog bed. Much appreciated by Rusty.

                Scaffolding in front of the window

              • Single
                7.8

                Large comfortable room, good public spaces

                Staff could have been friendlier and more ready to help. Slightly faded condition.
