We stayed in this hotel for one night Oban. It’s part of the Best Western chain so we weren’t expecting much, but every other hotel I tried was booked due to our last minute change of plans. We were on the fourth floor but the elevator only ran from the second to the fourth floor so we had to carry our luggage up one flight of stairs to get to the elevator.
The room was OK but had no air conditioning, and it was a warm evening which made us uncomfortable. The parking at this hotel is practically non-existent (six parking places for 40 rooms) nor is there any place to park near the hotel unless you just happen to get very lucky. We were going to have dinner in the hotel because I didn’t want to give up the parking place I finally found to go out for dinner. Turns out the kitchen was having a problem, and we couldn’t eat there anyway.
I thought the breakfast was very good for the class of hotel so I compliment BW on that. Overall this hotel was not our cup of tea but it might be suitable to others who are on a budget or can’t find anywhere else to stay. As far as we were concerned, it was better than sleeping in our car. less
