    Position is great handy for ferries to Mull and other islands. Food is good and the decor in lounge is modern with great views over the bay. Hotel is very central with plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from.

    The hotel is badly in need of updating.The bedrooms although clean with plenty of room are rather tired looking. Did not know you could still get big bulky T.V's. In saying that it did not spoil our holiday.

    The location was probably the only good point.

    Worn carpets, broken loose tiles on bathroom floor. Horrible furniture. Free wi-fi that doesn't work. Overpriced, staff who just don't care, breakfast was yuck.

    The location is excellent, my parents are elderly and found it easy to walk to everything.

    The hotel is very tired now and are room was very basic. But the staff are very helpful.

    I had the pleasure of staying at the Caledonian at April this year, and with the intentions of returning soon 2 the hotel, as we enjoyed this stay even more, as the staff went over board to assist if required. Incidentally in 2015 we are returning once more to our fav hotel for the Oban Mod, and are booked in. What I liked was I asked if it was possible to have a room groung floor, nr lift, as mobility probs, they worked wonders for me, I cannot thank them enough. I would like to ask you, if u could pass on to the staff my thanks. Thank you for allowing me to say my thoughts....... John Maclean

    There is nothing that I do not like ... stupendous hotel, ...John

    View from room was good. For what we paid our 1st room was poor with a narrow gap between bed and wall -my husband tripped and we were moved to a much bigger and better room which made the remainder of our stay very pleasant.

    Lunch time there was only one person serving in bar I waited 15 minutes to order soup&sadwiches Staff in bar and dining room required motivation-they were pleasant but lacked attention to customers.

    The location was great. Breakfast great.

    Our family stayed as a 60th birthday celebration. One of the rooms we booked (a double) was supposed to have extras as it was at the front of the hotel and cost us more. In fact it was very small and quite shabby (much smaller than the ordinary double my daughter had at the back of the hotel). The curtains were stained and it could have done with re-decoration. Only one window opened and that for only about two inches to rest on a screw. The view was good though.

    Great location, spacious room, bed comfortable. Lovely breakfast, lovely eating area, nice and bright. Have statyed before and have booked for a 3rd time to bring my daughter.

    Would have preferred a better room view, would recommend requesting a front room looking over the sea. Room a bit dated.

    Location perfect on the front overlooking the bay. Nice big comfortable lounge bar area.

    Rooms need upgrading Didn't get the room I asked for on the telephone when I booked otherwise for the money I paid would probably have looked elsewhere

    Nothing

    My room was awful. When I arrived there was no remote for the T V. I couldn't contact reception as there was absolutely no information. I reported it in person but was told nothing could be done till next day. My bed was the worst I have ever been in. The pillows were so old that they virtually had no stuffing. It was like lying on the mattress. The mattress was so bad that they had put a memory foam topper on it. This only made it worse as it kept shifting and wrinkling. There is no toilet roll holder and no towel rail in the bathroom. The floor tiles are cracked and the grouting is black. The room had not been dusted in ages and all the edges of the furniture were literally thick with dust. I cleaned them up a bit using toilet paper. Sunday mid day and still no T V remote.I asked to speak to the manager. The duty manager was very pleasant and the result was a different T V (this time a modern slim one and not one of Logie Baird's originals which it replaced) 2 more pillows were added to the bed. They were of the same vintage as the originals but did help a little. No mattress replacement as they do not carry spares!! The next 2 nights were sleepless. Had I not paid in advance I would have checked out. The breakfast was adequate but not wonderful, like other hotels I have stayed in in Oban. I am a regular visitor to Oban but certainly will not stay in the Caledonian Hotel again!! They have spent a lot of money on the public areas which are very nice but not on the bedrooms. Certainly not on room 118 anyway. I would advise you to check which rooms your clients are being allocated before making a booking.
