Best Western Muthu Queens Hotel

Best Western Muthu Queens Hotel in Oban has been substantially refurbished to offer both Victorian charm and modern, functional accommodation. Stunning views can be found both inside and out, as the hotel boasts beautiful, cosy reception rooms and outdoor views of Oban that stretch for miles across the water. The friendly team of staff are just as inviting, keen to offer the warmest of welcomes to all guests. Reassuringly, you'll be staying in the only 4-star full service hotel on the West Coast of Scotland - so there is no doubt about the quality you will enjoy.

The lovely resort town of Oban offers plenty of attractions inside and outside of its parameters. Dunollie Castle stands just on the outskirts the town, and provides glorious views that reach the Island of Kerrera. The falls of Lora can be found just six miles away from Oban, and prove a perfect day out for any adrenaline junkies or budding photographers. Treat yourself to some kayaking or diving, or simply enjoy the outstanding scenery that is waiting to be snapped. We'd highly recommend Loch Creran for some of the most peaceful fishing around, just 30-minutes away from the hotel.

Best Western Muthu Queens Hotel is a magnificent building, with its own interesting history. The hotel is believed to have been built for the 1st Episcopalian Bishop of Argyll and the Islands, to become his home in the late 19th Century. At present, the building stands as a family run hotel, taken over by a friendly couple who saw great potential after staying on their honeymoon. The couple are proud to welcome their guests with unparalleled views over Oban Bay, an elegant interior and some of the best food in Oban.

Not Best anything

14/08/2018 98PaulB007, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Nothing ‘Best’ about this place. A modern chain hotel; every member of staff appeared to be from eastern Europe. Nothing wrong with that in itself, but we just ended up feeling like foreigners ourselv... more

Poor location and service

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. It enables us to improve our services for future guests and iron out all the small issues we incur. We are disappointed to read about the unhappiness of your stay. The hotel is structured in such away hence it makes it a bit of a winding route to the rooms. Parking is free but limited and is subject to availability. We are always ready to assist with baggage especially to the higher floors. We are continuously trying to improve our breakfast selection. We hope this experience will not deter you from returning so we can further enhance your experience of staying with us. Kind Regards Rohan Devgan
