Where is the best place to stay? “The Manor House Hotel (01631 562087; www.manorhouseoban.com; doubles from £163, including dinner), which has a wonderful dining room with daily specialities” – Artist ‘Jolomo’ explains why he loves the the highland port of Oban.
Today this stylish hotel is the perfect place to stay to enjoy various day trips to the Western Isles. Bedrooms are not large but each is accompanied by a snug bath or shower room, and all are most attractively decorated. It is well worth the few extra pounds to secure a room with a sweeping water view across to Mull, Lismore, and the hills of Morvern.
On a rocky headland on the south shore of Oban bay, half a mile from the town centre, this hotel was found ‘excellent’ by visitors again this year
This is your best bet for an overnight in Oban
Today the Manor House is a hotel where great consideration has been taken to preserve the elegance of its bygone days but provide up to date amenities.
Compact bedrooms are pretty in blues, reds and greens, with fresh flowers, crisp linen sheets, radios, padded headboards and piles of towels in good bathrooms; those that look seaward have pairs of binoculars to scour the horizon.
An elegant Georgian residence…a smart restaurant where carefully prepared dinners are served.
Period furniture and colour schemes bring out the character of this 18th c dower house
