Just returned from our fourth visit to this wee gem. Yes the rear of the hotel is a bit dated but it's clean and comfortable, the staff are fabulous, the food delicious and the location second to none! In the words of Arnie.....

Great spot with nice views of Oban. Rooms were clean and staff was very inviting. We needed a room last minute and they were able to accommodate us. Even took us to see the room to make sure we wanted it before actually staying the night!

Where to start. Don't be foooled by the nice picture of the stone house you see. Onto the back they have build (circa 1970) a warren of dingy hallways complete with thread bare dirty wavy carpets leading to the worst room for this price you will ever encounter. All rooms are dreary brown with cheap dirty indoor/outdoor carpets, a postage... More

One which wasn't great straight away but is pointed out on the website is they have very limited parking I think they maybe have 20 spaces for the whole hotel maybe... More

Just back from a lovely weekend at the Oban Bay Hotel and Spa. Rooms were clean, warm & comfortable and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Only down side was that the outdoor hot tub was closed for maintenance on the morning of my birthday......was really looking forward to that! But it didn't spoil the weekend. The 6 course... More

Amazing price for the package and having never been to this hotel we weren't sure what to expect. We got 5 star treatment!! The room was clean and comfortable with loads of towels, fresh fruit tray, friendly and helpful staff. Dinner and breakfast were included in the deal. Dinner was a 6 course meal that was delicious and breakfast was... More

Fifth time here still as friendly and comfortable. The new idea of the taster menu for dinner (six courses) is great.

We hired a room at the hotel for an all day meeting. The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The large lounge and conservatory area was ideal for break outs. Lunch and refreshments were well organised and the food was very good. Great service.
