Hotel update


It’s been a long time but the big day that we all waited for, is finally here! No. 26 By The Sea are thrilled to announce that we are now taking bookings from the 26th of April.

We would like to thank all of our guests who have stayed with us in the last few months, and everyone who has been part of our journey! We have been blessed to be surrounded by amazing people who have given us the confidence to keep going during these uncertain times. Despite No.26 opening in the most challenging conditions, it was much appreciated by all of you, and we have loved every minute hosting you!

We can’t wait to welcome you back and celebrate together soon!

With love from Oban,

Ioana & Paul

Since opening we have implemented strict cleaning protocols and procedures across all areas of our hotel, to ensure we offer a safe environment for our staff and guests.

These include:


Hand sanitiser will be available at the entrance of the building and all the public areas, including rooms and guests are encouraged to use it frequently.

We will ask you to pre-book a time slot for breakfast in order to maintain safe social distancing. We ask that you respect your slot and arrive on time. Please avoid arriving early as this has the potential to cause gatherings. We are also offering breakfast in your room or to go options which must be pre-arranged at reception.

Rooms will be disinfected according to government guidance after every check out.

All our staff will be wearing the requested PPE and we encourage guests to wear masks in public areas of the hotel.

Providing digital thermometers for guest use during their stay.


We also ask that guests follow the Scottish government guidance which can be found here.

Book direct for our best available rate with a glass of fizz on arrival, a complimentary breakfast during your hotel break, and a luxury Gordon Castle product to take home with you.
