    We are a short walk across the road from the ferry terminal. Roughly half our rooms are to the front of the building where guests can watch the boats arriving and departing.

One of the oldest family run establishments in Oban.

Anne has been involved in the office side of equestrian sports for many years and many of the photos throughout the building have a story behind them which she like to share with the guests.

We are fortunate that we are located just opposite the bay but it is difficult to find a more centrally located family run hotel in town with most things in town within a short walk.
