Christmas gift idea

Once upon a time, a honeymooning couple stayed in a hotel overlooking a horseshoe bay.

They loved it so much, they made a promise to one another – that they would never leave. What’s more, they also promised to take over the hotel that had made them so happy.

That place was Oban, the hotel was the Muthu Queens and the same couple still run it to this day. And now you can soak up some of the horseshoe bay’s good luck for yourself with today’s Big Deal for a one or two night stay for two.

Need we even mention that this would make a particularly nice Christmas gift?

Hotel overlooking Oban Bay

Build for the Bishop of Argyll in the 19th century, Best Western Muthu Queens Hotel in Oban boast a charming Victorian exterior, a refurbished interior and those all important sea views.

The hotel also has an elegant fine dining restaurant, a traditional lounge bar and 24-hour service.

All of the ensuite guests rooms include free WiFi, crisp cotton sheets, tea & coffee making facilities and large flat screen TVs with Freeview. Some rooms also have partial bay views.

Choices, choices

If all of this tickles your fancy then this very flexible Big Deal has three options:

Option one is for an overnight stay for two including breakfast and a late check-out of noon.

Option two is for an overnight stay for two including a glass of Prosecco each on arrival, breakfast, a three course dinner for two and a late check-out of noon.

Option three is for a two night stay for two including a glass of Prosecco each on arrival, breakfast, a three course dinner for two on the first night and a late check-out of noon.

This offer is based on two people sharing a standard twin or double room. It is available seven days a week until 31st March 2019, excluding selected dates.

You also have the option of upgrading your room and extending your stay. Please arrange this directly with the hotel.

Three course meal for two

With options two and three, you can enjoy a three course meal for two in the hotel’s Cuanra Restaurant. Offering long views over Oban Bay, traditional tartan decor and crystal chandeliers, this is fine dining with added atmosphere.

The restaurant is overseen by Head Chef Stuart Wood, a culinary artist dedicated to creating faultless cuisine that will leave diners speechless.

Menus can shift with the seasons, but sample starters include soup of the day, and Scottish smoked salmon with crisp leaf salad, lemon and buttered brown bread.

Mains may include lamb rack with fondant potatoes, seasonal veg and minted jus, and the brie, cranberry & mushroom Wellington with crisp side salad. Desserts often include a selection of Scottish cheeses, and profiteroles with chocolate sauce.

Afterwards you can relax with a drink in the elegant lounge bar, a cosy hideaway of polished wood and gleaming brass. While there, why not sample a glass of the local dram, an Oban single malt?

Whisky, walks and golf

Oban is a great base for outdoor activities, sightseeing and relaxing coastal strolls. The hotel is close to the striking Gothic Revival St. Columba’s Cathedral and a five-minute drive from the Gateway to the Islands ferry hub, should you fancy a jaunt over the water.

You could also spend a day out on a seal spotting boat cruise, sample whiskies at Oban Distillery or head to the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary. Dunollie Castle stands just on the outskirts the town and offers glorious views to the island of Kerrera. The falls of Lora are also within easy reach and are a fun day out for adrenaline junkies or budding photographers.

Glencruitten golf course is a real hidden gem just outside of Oban, in the hilly Glencruitten Estate. The 18-hole parkland course was designed by James Braid and offers a whole host of extra facilities, including a practice area with a putting green, well-equipped shop and a lovely bar and lounge.

Loch Creran is also a very peaceful spot just a half hour drive from the hotel, while Cruachan Hollow Mountain Visitor Centre on Loch Awe gives you the chance to get up close to an amazing feat of engineering.

Happy guests

Recent TripAdvisor reviewers had this to say about Best Western Muthu Queens Hotel (edited for shortness):

‘Service was friendly. Room was downstairs and small but comfortable. Nice meal in the restaurant and even though we didn’t make reservation and it was fully booked, they found us a table and we enjoyed a wood fired pizza.’

‘...cannot fault service and accommodation. The staff were very helpful and the restaurant staff were smart and impeccable and the service was excellent. Food choice was great and very quick service. Would definitely recommend. Views across the bay were fab.’

‘...I found the staff we met helpful and friendly. The room was lovely and there was a Jacuzzi bath in the bathroom. Breakfast was buffet style which was fine. You could help yourself to what you wanted.’

Soak up the magic of Oban

If you fancy a cheeky getaway between now and Christmas, then a stay at Best Western Muthu Queens Hotel offers a chance to cosy up in comfort.

Breakfast and a late check-out are included, plus you can amp up the luxury with a glass of Prosecco each on arrival and a three course meal.
