The inn itself is nice and clean with a lovely restaurant. Perhaps breakfast will be wonderful. We are very sad about our room, which is all dark brown and beige. There is not one spot of color in the room. Even the photographs are sepia toned. With only one small window there is little light to cheer the room up.... More

It figures that our 3rd stay at the Oban, and the one we paid the most for, would be the one we enjoyed the least. Our previous stays have been in shoulder and off season, where the attention to detail, friendliness of the staff, location and ammenities have left us with high expectations. A visit to NOTL during the summer... More

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by name and welcomed back after a 25 year hiatus. The hotel congratulated us on our anniversary . We stayed in room 318, a cozy queen room with a balcony : a summer delight . The 'new' Oban offers spa , pool, hot spring pool and a workout facility . The on-site restaurant appeared... More

It was the morning of July 21st when we were really looking forward to breakfast but unfortunately when our three-tier tray arrived, we could not get past the slices of cantaloupe and honeydew. They were clearly fermented and bad. The cold cuts of sliced chicken were also off. Simply unacceptable!! I would not give it even one star...it spoiled our... More

My husband and I have been going to NOTL for over 30 years and have stayed in a variety of accommodations. This year, we decided to try the Oban. We stayed in Room 303 from July 8 to 11. The room has much to recommend it: a comfortable King bed, lots of light through the many windows, shutters for privacy,... More

We are frequent visitors to niagara on the lake. This was our first stay at the Oban Inn. From check in to check out the staff were polite and helpful The room was beautiful and updated and exceptionally clean. The breakfast was included and was probably the best hotel breakfast we have ever experienced. Highly recommend this property.

We stayed at the Oban Inn for our 10 year anniversary and it was very nice. We were greeted by Gordon who said "happy anniversary". We had no problems at check in. We had forgot to print and reserve tickets for an outing we were going to and the staff was very helpful with getting those done for us. The... More
