We stayed here for a large family gathering. Great location, great sized house and plenty bathrooms. I would definitely recommend
We stayed at the Drury for my husbands 60th birthday in October 2019 with family and friends. From the outset I was very impressed as was all the people I had invited. The house is amazing, bedrooms stunning, living areas fantastic, hot tub was a hit!! Everything you could ever want and need for a fabulous weekend at one of the most amazing properties.
Special mention to Gregor who is just the most amazing House Manager. He is so welcoming, friendly and helped us so much. He is always available if you need him (which we did not) but just knowing that he is there is fantastic.
When you have the responsibility for organising accommodation suitable for children and adults (up to 85 years) it's not an ease task, I spent many hours searching for the right place and can honestly say the Drury satisfied all of our needs. Firstly the booking, I had never heard of houseparties.com before this and was wary, however, after a bit of research I was reassured and the booking was very straightforward. The house was just perfect for us, it was very clean on arrival, the rooms are extremely spacious and my bed was comfortable, everyone said they slept well. The facilities in the kitchen met the demands of 22 guests, (plenty fridge space) although we mainly ordered food from the local fish and chip shop and Chinese takeaway, both of these were excellent and only 5 minute walk. The 2 large sitting rooms were a real bonus and both very comfortable, a plentiful supply of logs was a lovey touch for the open fire. The hot tub was well used every night and the view from the house at sunset was beautiful.
Gregor, who met us on arrival took time to show us around the house and explained everything we needed to know, he was very friendly and easily contactable by phone if were to have any issues (which we didn't)
I particularly loved the feeling of this house, it is presented to a high standard but still managed to creates a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
I would definitely return to the Drury.
We booked the Drury for a 3 night stay in Oban for 20 adults. We had a fantastic stay and highly recommend the Drury to anyone considering a weekend in Oban.
The house is perfect. It is immaculate, in great condition, spacious and very comfortable. The two living rooms and games room accommodated us all with ease. It is conveniently located and is only a 5 minute walk from Oban town centre. It also offers the most spectacular views of Mull, which you will never get tired of.
The kitchen facilities were on the small side, it could be doing with an extra fridge and larger ovens. I would also recommend taking appropriate footwear if youre intending to use the hot tub as you have to cut across gravel then grass to access it.
A brilliant weekend was had by all and we would not hesitate about visiting again in the future.
We booked The Drury for a big birthday! We had 18 guests and we have never done something like this before! The booking was easy to deal with, property immaculate, had everything we needed or wanted! We would definitely recommend and are already looking for an excuse to go back!
As soon as myself and direct family members arrived at the Drury we were welcomed by Gregor the house manager. He gave us a very short tour and pointed out key things we needed to know during our stay, which was very helpful. The house facilities were excellent and it had everything and more for our 22 guests, one baby and two dogs. The location of the house is fantastic as it allows for incredible views of Oban and the sea to the Isles. An added bonus was its only a 5 minute walk into the hub of the town which everyone loved.
The abundance of seating area in the garden was very much appreciated as we happened to pick a fantastic weekend of sunshine and everyone could comfortably sit outside.
We were so impressed by the Drury that whilst there we tried to book for Christmas or New Year, to no avail as its fully booked, cant say we were surprised!
A fantastic weekend making wonderful memories was had by all.
