This rental unit provides an absolutely spectacular view and is close to everything we needed in Oban. We highly recommend it.

“Amazing views from lovely, homely apartment”

Just returned from a week at this lovely apartment, which was like a home from home, especially as we had mixed weather and were in it more than if it had been sunshine. It is very spacious and well-furnished with everything you would need. Yes, some things like the suite need attention- a throw would help that- and yes, you have to pay for electricity but, even with nightly baths, we still paid less than anticipated; and yes, there is carpet in the bathroom, but everything is spotless and clean. But the wonderful view and sunsets from the lounge and the very convenient location, only a few minutes walk from the town and restaurants and ferry- and across the road from the Chocolate Shop!- make this a great place to stay, and we would have no hesitation in staying here again if visting Oban.

“Getting away with murder”

Have gone to this property for the last 3 years and loved the view and the location but the property is dated - the bathroom has a carpet which will be full of germs, so i always take about 4 bath mats to cover it then throw out when we leave -it has an Ala baba basket beside the toilet which must be covered in urine so we move it when we arrive, the grouting is black. The double bedroom has blankets so always take our duvet with us, the drawers have paper lining with drawing pins. The living room is spacious but has a dated dangerous fire and a carpet like a jigsaw with a frayed suite. The balcony is great but unsafe as the railings are broken and rusted which has been like that for the last 3 years We have reported this but the owner does not want to spend any money on it since the view is amazing enough to not bother about the standards of safety and hygiene. This property is great if Oban is warm but if it is cold there is a coin meter which is set high so could cost you a lot if staying for a week. - we were hoping that the place would be updated or at least cleaner and safer since it is the main disappointment, but after 3 years it's safe to say 3 times is not a charm.

Management Response

Thank you for your review. The owner is very disappointed that you did not enjoy the apartment on your most recent visit. The owner takes feedback very seriously and since your review has replaced the blankets on the double bed with a duvet and also removed the basket in the bathroom. Additionally, the metalwork on the balcony has recently been renewed. The owner has assured us that at no time was the balcony unsafe, although the railing had become rusted in appearance due to sea air exposure.

The owner wishes to point out that all electrical appliances in the apartment are PAT tested annually and are therefore perfectly safe. Any thing not up to standard would have been removed and replaced. In addition the apartment is inspected annually by Visit Scotland who have awarded it a three star quality rating for the last six consecutive years.

The owner has stated that they are greatly concerned that guests enjoy their stay and any comments or criticisms are of immense importance to them. A testament to the standard of this apartment is the fact that we have many satisfied repeat guests.
