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.

Dear Macandcheese7, Thank you for you for leaving this review on tripadvisor from your recent experience with our hotel. I apologise for the inconvenience caused by this. When reservation was made, the hotel was planned to be open. All guests who had booked groupon vouchers did not book directly with the hotel, therefor we could not contact you directly due to GDPR laws. Groupon were instructed to contact all guests that had purchased a voucher. Explaining that the hotel was closed, that we could either refund or look into further dates. I can't comment on anything regarding to the manager, as its unknown to me who you have spoken to. If you wish to contact me directly I will leave a copy of my email address below. I wish you all the best with your future travels. Best Regards, William Stephen mqh.reception@muthuhotels.com Best Western Muthu Queens Hotel

Dear Guest. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback from your recent experience with our company.

Due to the terms and conditons with Groupon it was their responsibility to contact all guests who had booked using a Groupon voucher. This is due to the new GDPR laws. If you would like to contact me directly I will leave my email address below. I can insure you and all others guests, that renovations have taken place.

Dear JeanD2129, Thank you for providing us with feedback from your experience. I understand your frustrations, and I personally apologise for this. However, the due to the nature of your booking through a groupon voucher. Groupon had to contact all guests who had paid for the hotel due to GDPR to be cancelled. I also note that you have wrote that we had no refurbishment going on. I must disagree with you on this, has many improvements have been made around the hotel, including a complete refurbishment of our laundry room. So please do not wirte slander regarding our hotel. I wish you all the best with your future travels. Best Regards, William Stephen Best Western Muthu Queens Hotel.
