The Highland town of Oban is always a hive of activity. Affectionately known as the “Gateway to the Isles”, Oban attracts locals and tourists every day as they soak up the town’s special atmosphere, hop on a ferry to an island or two, enjoy the delicious local seafood, or take a boat trip to the nearby seal colonies.

As the largest town on Scotland’s west coast, Oban also attracts many organisations who want that special location for a conference, the most high profile being the Scottish Labour Party. The town has excellent amenities, has good road and rail transport links with Oban airport only a few miles out of the town, and high quality accommodation and eateries.

Anyone attending a conference in Oban is struck by the stunning views the town affords. However, here at Loch Melfort Hotel a few miles south of Oban, we believe we have the finest views on the west coast. Our position commands breathtaking views of the magnificent Sound of Jura and its islands, and because of our position in Asknish Bay, it is beautifully tranquil.

Indeed, this is one main reason conference delegates and business executives choose to escape Oban’s hustle and bustle and stay with us. They enjoy not only the scenery and tranquil setting, but our delicious, award winning food made with fresh ingredients sourced locally, cosy lounges and relaxing atmosphere.

We also have full conference facilities of our own and an experienced team who are well-versed in creating tailor made set ups for conferences, seminars, and meetings. As an added bonus, our boardroom has an incredible inspiring view which helps create a perfect, stress-free environment for corporate gatherings.
