Great long weekend with 20 adults!
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 you’re 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.
Thankyou for your review, I'm glad you had a good time. We added both a further fridge and a further oven this year so in total the oven space comprises: 2 full size ovens, a separate grill/oven and a microwave. We have 4 fridges, being a large American style fridge freezer, a set of integrated refrigerator pan drawers, a wine fridge and a beer fridge in the shed.
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.
Dear Vivienne, Thank you for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed our stay and your husband had a wonderful birthday. We hope to welcome you back to The Drury for many more celebrations in the future. Kind regards Helen
Celebrating an 80th birthday with 22 family members
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.
Amazing house for a big party!
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!
Family birthday 23-25th August 2019
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 it’s fully booked, can’t say we were surprised!
A fantastic weekend making wonderful memories was had by all.
Thanks for the review, I’m glad you had a lovely time. There is a temperature control on the top floor which can be turned down or indeed turned off completely as you require it. We’ll make sure that’s clear moving forward. We like to leave guests the ability to turn the heating on even in summer rather than switch it off in the plant room ( which can always be done if necessary). Thanks for letting us know, we’ll make sure it’s not an issue going forward. Christmas and New Year typically get booked up fairly far in advance - come back for Easter, right now it’s still available, and we’d love to see you! Kind regards Katrine Owner of The Drury
Family holiday to celebrate a 70th birthday
We stayed at The Drury for a week in July 2019. It is a fabulous house in a stunning location on the hill above Oban. The views over to Mull are really spectacular. The house was immaculate when we arrived. We were given a guided tour of the house and grounds by Gregor who explained everything to us. The house itself is very comfortable and accommodated us all with ease. The children loved the hot tub and games room.
The only criticism I have is that the heating was left on aĺl week despite the warm weather. We were all far too hot! I can't see the need for it in high summer even in the UK!
Apart from that, we all had a wonderful time here. Hopefully, we'ĺl be back again in the near future.
