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.

Hello thebooler, Thank you very much for leaving a review of the hotel following your recent stay with us. We are delighted that you returned after a less than enjoyable experience on your last visit, and even more so that you found your stay welcoming, comfortable and good value for money. We have limited parking on site but as you say there is ample unrestricted parking on the road opposite; I hope you found a space without too much inconvenience. I am sorry to hear you had some issues with the shower and steam in the room and hope the team were able to assist you with this matter. I will pass on your lovely feedback to the rest of the team and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kindest regards, Tipi

Hello clairebbz91, Thank you for leaving a great review following your weekend break in Oban. We are so pleased to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the views of the bay from your room - we agree it is beautiful and well worth booking a bay view room. Parking is very tight across all of Oban unfortunately, but I am glad to hear you were assisted on arrival. I will be sure to pass on your lovely comments and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kindest regards, Tipi
