No. 26 By The Sea Guest Reviews & Testimonials

A simply fantastic boutique hotel, beautifully decorated and staffed by the most welcoming and attentive people. From the wonderful greeting, to the fabulously appointed rooms, the stunning views across the bay and the exquisite breakfast, we’d go as far as to say it was one of the best hotel experiences we’ve ever had. Book without hesitation. And be sure to order the salmon for breakfast.

Simply stunning boutique hotel. We stayed at No. 26 for two of the best nights I’ve ever had at a hotel. We were lucky enough to receive a free upgrade on arrival and the room was utterly fabulous with an amazing bay window looking out over the bay where the local otter would swim around for our delight. We’ll definitely be coming back, it was an amazing stay and great value for money.

Tom H

WOW! What an amazing hotel. Great location, 10 minutes walk to the main bars and restaurants in Oban. We were stunned by how beautiful the decor is. Our room was incredible & we even had a view over the sea. We had a few drinks in the honesty bar at night (great selection of Scottish drinks & the lounge is very relaxing) followed by a great sleep in our comfy bed. The breakfast area has a lovely vibe and food was delicious. Friendly and amazing hosts. 10/10 – can’t wait to go back!

Dan M

Warm welcome on a January afternoon with a glass of fizz and the fire I knew we made a good choice. Perfectly framed view of Kerrara Sound and ferries as they sailed for the islands and back. Very comfortable bed good lighting, smart TV, thoughtful addition of vanity mirror in bedroom. Good WIFI and phone signal. Breakfast was amazing, imaginative but old favourites on offer too. Loved the lounge and home from home feel of open fire and honesty bar. Shame there are not more hotels in Oban of a similar style. Talking of style, hats off to the interior designer.
