The Caledonian Hotel Oban is the town’s landmark building. Originally built around 1882 the Oban Caledonian Hotel is situated in the centre of Oban and rises from the water's edge overlooking the bustling fishing harbour. The historic Caledonian Hotel commands breath-taking views over the sheltered bay. This coastal hotel also offers views to the mountains and islands of Scotland's magnificent west coast.

The Caledonian Hotel Oban is centrally located and has a selection of rooms to choose from most with views over Oban Bay, Isle of Mull and the mountains of Movern.

At the Oban Caledonian Hotel, guests can choose from two of the best dining experiences in the town. The chef’s main focus in the main restaurant is to create a menu using imagination, a fusion of modern and traditional Scottish and International cuisine. The Cafe Caledonian offers more informal dining available all day and an extensive wine list.

Oban occupies a perfect location in the Argyll and Bute area, and is the ideal gateway to outdoor recreation in Scotland.
