Have been here several times, opting for the dinner, B&B option through Easy-breaks.com - a last minute bargain! Room was average .. Fine but nothing special & suffered from condensation on the windows leading to a faint damp smell. But that's worth putting up with for the fabulous waterside views from the conservatory bar, and the wonderful 6 course taster... More

Cons: onsite parking is something like 5 spots for a hotel of 75+ rooms (however we parked in a lot 5 min away and... More

Storm Gertrude reared its head on Friday, and prevented us from going to the hotel in Mull as planned. Before writing this review, I must take the opportunity to thank Neil for arranging this hotel as an alternative to our DBB 5pm voucher booked. Maybe we will finally visit Mull in better climes. This is reflected in a separate review.... More

Arrived to a very friendly welcome; bit of a corridor trek to room but this made it away from the bar (so quiet area as requested). Warm, comfortable room with adequate space for all our luggage. Splendid breakfast with plenty of choice and all served by bustling waiters. Would not hesitate to stop here again. Situated away from the town... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, your kind comments are much appreciated. Unfortunately, the fault on the hot tub was out of our control and after investigation by an engineer it required a new pump, however, I understand this was something that would have spoilt your stay, therefore, please email me at gm.obanbay@crerarhotels.com and I will...

Really enjoyed a relaxing break at The Oban Bay. Lovely views whilst relaxing with a drink. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and compliments to the chefs. It was our second time at the Oban Bay and we will certainly stay again in the future.
