We have stayed at Arbour House annually for many years, only because of its proximity to Corran Halls. The family room was extremely small, up two flights of stairs, and the double bed and twin bed could not be any closer to each other. Seven rooms shared the bathroom as well as each other's sounds. The room was much too small for a family room with not enough floor space for luggage or moving around. The furniture was inappropriate in type and size for the room.


A shower with only cold water is very disappointing first thing in the morning, and no staff at that moment to ask for assistance.


We booked 4 beds bedroom: only 2 beds (one with lath broken), add one more one bed on the floor. No parking as mentioned, electricity cut at 9 am. (no more hot water)


It is conveniently Located close to Oban city centre, the rooms were cheap and reflected that but were clean. To check in we had to phone a number that was on the pin up board inside but no one answered for some time so we were left trying to call for 15mins before anyone showed up.


The room smelled of smoke, the WIFI signal wasn't strong enough to work in our room. There were only lace curtains on the windows which meant the room was light by 5am
