FAQs about hotels in Oban





Gateway to the Inner Hebrides

Oban is a city built around a late 18th-century distillery that produces one of the finest single malt whiskeys in Scotland. This normally peaceful town is invaded during summer when tourists use it as a base to visit the Inner Hebrides islands such as Mull, Lismore and Coll, supporting its status as the Gateway to the Isles.

The horseshoe-shaped Oban Bay is sheltered by Kerrera Island with its spectacular Gylen Castle. Award-winning seafood restaurants and lively pubs line George Street and the waterfront of Corran Esplanade adjacent to the harbour.

Take a short walk up the hill to McCaig’s Tower, a structure based on the Roman Colosseum, for the finest views of Oban’s centre and the outer islands. When you get back down to sea level, stroll into and stumble out of the Oban whiskey distillery after sampling the local version of the 'water of life'.

Admire the coastal scenery as you travel a bit out of town to the 7th-century ruins of Dunollie Castle, home of the Clan MacDougall. The Firth of Lorn gives visitors a fanatstic opportunity to try some sea kayaking.

As the capital of North Argyll, Oban has a great selection of hotels, guest houses and B&Bs available on Booking.com.

    Love Oban, been there a few times.

    Love Oban, been there a few times. Lovely town and a good base to explore other islands nearby. Great ferry service. McCaig tower is worth a visit - great views, but a steep climb, so easier with a car if mobility, or other ailments are a problem. Some nice shops you could easily spend money there 😂

    Oban is a bustling busy little town with many visitors and many others using the towns ferries to travel to the popular Scottish Islands ! Lots of shopping available, Plenty of places to eat and drink to suit any budget and gift shops galore probably for those with plenty of spare cash I was able to buy a waterproof jacket (hooded) having forgotten to pack my own got a great deal and made little dent in my wallet! Been to Oban a good few times and hopefully will be back a few more!

    Oban is an absolutely beautiful coastal town with great access to the rest of the Highlands. The ferries were very easy to use and we had a wonderful time exploring the Isle of Mull and travelling past the Isle of Kerrera on the way. Also make sure to head towards Dunollie Castle and take the tour round - a great time if you enjoy history or stories of the clans. All of the food establishments that we went to were delicious and had great options. Highly recommend the ceilidh dancing on a Monday and Thursday night as it was a cracking time.

    What a beautiful location and a beautiful view! I had a Seaview room and could have sat for hours looking out the window. The bed was big and comfortable. We enjoyed a delicious meal in the pub where the staff was incredibly accommodating to our large party. Breakfast was good as well with plenty of options. There was a parking lot in back, which, luckily we got the last two spots for. There was a treat, along with the coffee maker, which always raises my opinion of a hotel!

    Great location on waterfront at harbor. Plenty of on-site parking. Some parking allocated to hotel, other spaces in lot were free overnight, so no problem there. Very convenient to local pubs and restaurants. Nicely sized rooms. All around good location and good stay. Really fun little pub fight across the street - check it out. PLUS, Oban Distillery is right there!

    The rooms were extremely clean (good sign when dog doesn't endlessly sniff the carpet!) Great sea view. Staff incredibly helpful, comfortable bed, food excellent - proper Scottish fare. Extremely pet friendly hotel for a brilliant price. Stayed in the winter and room was lovely and warm. Closer to Oban centre than appears on google maps. I will return.

    We both work for the airlines, and are in about 125 hotel rooms a year. There is at least one fault in each of them. In your castle, neither of us could find any! Food, surroundings, and everything else was excellent. It will be our first stop on our next Scotland vacation. Thanks Simon and Alana. Joe and Juliana.

    It was nice to get the buffet breakfast back, though we had to pay for the breakfast. Next time we'll be booking direct through the hotel so the breakfast will be included in the room rate. We have been coming to Oban at least twice a year over the last 10 or more years and have always stayed at Columba hotel.
