hanging gardens of Oban

Pros: The view over Oban Bay
Cons: Complete renovation including cleaning of gutters
Location: Been to Oban many times and enjoyed the scenery and the town
When we got to our first room my wife could not see over the hotel parapet. We moved to the 4th floor ans view from room was perfect apart from the grass hanging from the gutters some at least 18 inches in length. I asked for a small plastic stool for my wife to use in shower-none available. I decided to have a shower and the door was off the bottom runner- so to dangerous for my wife to use Spoke to duty manager when having dinner and all we got was a free drink. For what we paid for B&B is far to expensive for what we experienced and in future will go elsewhere. Regards Tom Marshall I

Liegt am Yachthafen, alles zu Fuß zu erreichen. Zimmer war Richtung Hinterhof, Lärm von der Küche. Bett gut.
