No. 17 The Promenade Hotel and No. 26 by the Sea, Oban's newest boutique hotels, offer contemporary luxury in Scotland's chicest coastal destination.
In 2020, the scenic coastal town of Oban welcomed its first boutique hotel, No. 26 by the Sea, under the ownership of local entrepreneur, Paul Sloan. This establishment set a new standard for coastal accommodations. Building on its success, No. 17 The Promenade Hotel was unveiled in the summer of 2022, following a complete makeover of a Victorian guesthouse, resulting in a luxurious coastal retreat.
Nestled in the heart of the Victorian Esplanade, No. 17 The Promenade Hotel seamlessly combines historical charm with modern comfort. It's conveniently located just a short 5 to 10-minute stroll from the town centre, making it an ideal base for guests to explore Oban's local culture and attractions.
At No. 17 The Promenade, luxury takes centre stage in its 19 guest rooms. Each room is adorned with vibrant printed wallpapers in calming hues. The bathrooms feature intricate tiling and vintage furnishings, including classic dial telephones to add character and charm. The room options range from cosy and snug to spacious and opulent, with some offering breath-taking sea views.
To enhance the interiors of both No. 17 The Promenade Hotel and its sister property, No. 26 by the Sea, Atkinson & Kirby’s Bespoke Dark Finger Jointed Oak flooring (RDF1006) from their refined collection of Solid Wood Flooring was chosen. The deep, rich tones of this bespoke flooring create a striking statement in every room, with visible knots and splits adding character and a uniquely aged charm, complementing the vibrant coastal surroundings.
