Best Western The Queens Hotel.

Best Western The 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 The 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. Your pets will be just as warmly welcomed as the Best Western The Queens Hotel is a pet friendly hotel.

Dear Dina D, Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a kind review of our hotel. It is excellent to read that you were happy and impressed with the cleanliness of your room.

Dear KateInverness, Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay. I am glad to read that in the most part you were happy with the accommodation, all the mattresses in the hotel were replaced about 1 month ago and I hope this added to the comfort of the bed. It is disheartening to read of your comments regarding the cleanliness. I am very proud of our housekeeping team who work extremely hard to ensure the standards of cleanliness in our rooms meet ours and our guests expectations. I can only apologise that our usual high standards have not been met on this occasion. If you wish to, I would be happy to speak with you further to obtain some information on which room you were in and the date you stayed so I can investigate this further. We welcome all feedback from our guests whether positive or negative. This is one of the best ways for us to maintain or implement new standards to ensure our guests receive the type of accommodation and service that they expect. Please contact me on 01631 562 505 if you would like to discuss your stay with us further, I would be happy to do so. Kind regards, Rob
