Alternatively drop by for a bar lunch. The Manor House is popular within Oban as a quiet spot away from the bustle of town. With parking readily available it is an elegant meeting point for friends or business acquaintances.


The conservatory provides a light airy setting to spend some quiet time, perhaps catching up on some reading. Have your morning coffee or afternoon tea while soaking up the light atmosphere amidst our collection of plants and flowers.


We have a lovely multi-level garden on the shores of Oban Bay. On a fine day, enjoy lunch on the terrace or a drink before dinner. A great location to observe the harbour or watch the ferries arriving or departing to the islands.


yachtThe Manor House’s owner, P Leslie Crane is a Past Commodore of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and welcomes guests to use our deep water mooring in front of the hotel. The mooring is rated for a 60 ft boat. There is a staircase accessing the beach and old oyster pond but it can be slippery and a better bet may be to run your dinghy to the newly installed floating dock just west of the Manor House.
