is vis­i­tor ac­com­mo­da­tion in Oban too ex­pen­sive?

The Oban Times - - News - By David McPhee

Clive James, from Wat­ford, came to Oban af­ter see­ing McCaig’s Tower on tele­vi­sion.

He said: ‘ You [peo­ple from Oban] com­plain, but it’s ex­pen­sive in Wat­ford. The nearer you get to Lon­don, the more ex­pen­sive it is.’

Mr James paid £35 pppn for his ac­com­mo­da­tion in Fort Wil­liam.

Dorothy Hen­der­son, from Mus­sel­burgh, said: ‘ We only paid £60; I would not have paid that [£132], it’s not worth it.’

Irene Turn­ball, from Glas­gow, said: ‘ That’s ex­pen­sive, I wouldn’t pay that. We’re pay­ing £60 for two. I was in Liver­pool and stayed close to the air­port. An overnight stay and to use the car park for a week was £85.’

Neil Brown, from Oban, said that he wouldn’t pay the £132, but he added: ‘If that’s what the price is, it must be what peo­ple are willing to pay.’

Les­ley McInnes, from Oban, said she has friends who pay for ac­com­mo­da­tion in the town.

She said: ‘I think it de­pends what deals are on at lo­cal ho­tels. We want fair ac­com­mo­da­tion for a fair price.’
