    About this property

    • The Manor House was commissioned by the Duke of Argyll in 1780 and is an elegant Category B Listed mansion, gracefully proportioned and can be fairly described as the perfect Georgian house. It was later owned by Admiral Otter who was responsible for charting the Hebrides in the 1860s and was used as a residential property for most of its existence. Recently, the Manor House has been transformed into a hotel which is consistently rated the number one hotel in Oban by Trip Advisor with a two AA rosette restaurant and winner of the Best Hotel Restaurant in Central Scotland at the Scotland Food and Drink Awards in 2018.

      The gardens to the rear of the property lead to the waterfront and mooring. The Manor House Hotel building has been meticulously maintained over the last 30 years and the roof has been recently re-slated.

      The accommodation on the ground floor begins with a beautiful entrance hallway with mosaic tile floor and fluted pilasters. The ground floor apartments comprise a generous reception hall, beautiful sitting room with fireplace, guest lounge with bay window overlooking Oban Bay, bar and formal dining room. To the east of the ground floor there is an inner hallway leading to a downstairs bedroom with shower room en suite, a linen store, conservatory and ladies and gents toilets. To the west side of the ground floor there is a commercial kitchen with washroom off, stores, laundry room and additional WC. The upper floor comprises 11 bedrooms all with en suite bathroom or shower rooms.

      The gardens surrounding the Manor House are meticulously maintained with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs with seasonal colour and to the rear there is access to a former oyster bed and the shore. To the side of the property there is excellent provision for off street parking. The kitchen stores could be converted into a 2 car garage.

      While currently configured for use as a hotel, the approximately 5,300 sq ft of living area could(subject to the approval of planning permission) be converted back to a premier residential property in a unique and quiet situation on Oban's active harbour front.
