    Very friendly and very very helpful staff (nothing was a bother to them and they couldn't be more helpful - for this I would give a aaa rating). Food was delicious, room very clean and comfortable and views were marvellous especially watching the ferries so close by.

    From arrival to departure, the staff were excellent. I have stayed in lots of hotels across Scotland whilst on business trips, and the Queens Hotel is without doubt the best I have visited. As for the cuisine, words fail me when trying to describe how good it is.I will definitely be staying at the Queens Hotel on my next trip to Oban.

    The hotel was recently refurbished and was the best hotel we saw out of many we visited in Oban. I would recommend this hotel for its location, cleanliness and friendly and helpful staff.

    The reception staff were ok.but after several problems with room i.e.no water. There was no offer of even a courtesy drink.the staff could be heard shouting and swearing at breakfast.very overpriced for what it was.

    It was clean and the breakfast was good. Location was good.

    Small rooms. So small the kettle must be boiled on the floor! Awful bathroom - no water pressure in shower, noisy 'jacuzzi' function that can be heard through the walls. Price - £150 per night for sub travel inn standards. Parking - good luck!

    Very good

    Location, view and staff

    After reading the booklet in the room we became very worried we might accidentally do something that would result in a hefty surcharge (minimum of £150). This included setting off the smoke alarms with steam from the bathroom amongst many other things. Not the kind of thing you want when trying to have a 'relaxing' time. We also thought the charge of £7.50 for corkage if we had our own alcohol was very steep and a bit ridiculous - what if we had wanted to bring a bottle of champagne on our romantic weekend? Not really very fair as the bar was not open all day and the selection was not very good. We found it expensive and the drinks of average quality. Presuming this rule was to ensure people spent money in the hotel bar, what it actually did was make us go elsewhere. We have never stayed in a Hotel that didn't allow us to bring a bottle of our own wine and probably won't stay in a Best Western again because of the above rules.

    We had a superior sea view room. Lovely. Was lovely watching sun sets and sun rises. We also had a jacuzzi - brilliant. We had breakfast and a bar meal at night - very good.Staff all friendly.

    Superb

    Location on esplanade with beautiful views across the bay both from our bedroom and in the public rooms. Liked the way in which the public rooms were decorated and the comfort of them. Bar meal and breakfasts were very good with local fish dishes available. External floodlighting at night was also an attractive feature and helpful too when returning after dark

    Our bedroom was fortunately not next the lift but even so we could hear it clearly when used.
