Barbados may be buff and Cannes is thought chic but, when it comes to coastal beauty spots, we know which we would keep.
Scotland’s West Coast offers stunning sunsets, romantic history and fantastic wildlife.
See it all with today’s Big Deal on a mini-break at the Oban Caledonian Hotel.
Just over two hours from Glasgow by car and on the world famous West Highland Line for guests arriving by rail, Oban is an easy destination for a short break.
Completed with the arrival of the West Highland Railway in 1882, the Oban Caledonian Hotel is one of the town’s landmark hotels and it enjoys a great location by the harbour – perfect for watching the boats come and go to the islands.
Option one of today’s great offer is for two people to have an overnight stay in a double or twin room at the Oban Caledonian. Guests can enjoy a full Scottish breakfast in the morning.
Option two is for a one night stay with dinner in the evening and a Scottish breakfast the next morning.
Dinner is a two course meal in the hotel’s candlelit Restaurant Caledonian.
Both of today’s options are available seven days a week. There is a £20 supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays.
While it dates to Victorian times, the hotel features 21st century facilities such as free WiFi in all 59 of the bedrooms.
In keeping with the hotel’s highland location, each of the Caledonian’s well appointed bedrooms has a traditional theme.
Standard rooms mainly have views to McCaig’s Folly and the Soroba Hills and there is the option to upgrade to sea view rooms which look out over Oban Bay to Kerrera.
This fantastic offer includes a two course dinner in the candlelit Restaurant Caledonian. Carefully restored with chandeliers and ornate plasterwork, the Restaurant is a Victorian dining room showcasing the best of Scotland’s larder.
The menu changes daily in keeping with the seasons and local produce available. Seafood from the cold, clean surrounding waters is a speciality.
See & do
As well as being the departure point for ferries to Mull and beyond, Oban and the surrounding area are packed with great things to see and do. From a tour of Oban Distillery to a Seafari adventure via whale watching, you won’t be bored.
The Oban Caledonian Hotel won lots of praise over the years. These recent extracts are from enthusiastic TripAdvisor reviews:
‘Fantastic view from our room… Great room and reception staff were helpful and friendly. Looking forward to going back. Oban itself is a fantastic place and gives easy access to the islands.’
‘The hotel is like a pair of comfy slippers and has a homely feel. The bed was big, clean and comfortable. Maid service daily with clean sheets and towels, and the breakfast was really good with a vast selection of fruits, juices, cereal, yoghurt, porridge, fish and a full cooked breakfast.’
Scotland’s West Coast in the summer is one of the world’s best beauty spots. Make the most of all that we have on our doorstep with today’s Big Deal on an overnight break at the Oban Caledonian Hotel.
