Located in the centre of Oban, The Royal Hotel is a large and grand building, with traditionally decorated interiors and cosy bedrooms that all have a television and tea/coffee making facilities. Built in the late 1800’s, the building retains many original features such as high ceilings and large windows that look out onto the town.
The Royal Hotel is ideally placed, close to all of Oban’s main attractions as well as the harbour and pier – perfect if you wish to get up early and take a ferry trip to the nearby islands of Mull and Iona!
The hotel’s Morvern Suite Restaurant and Blasta @ The Royal Hotel have menus brimming with locally sourced produce and classic Scottish dishes. Its food is complemented by a fantastic selection of wines, cocktails and spirits from the bar.
