The hotel has a lovely location on the sea front of Oban. Our room though was a step back in time, but not in a good way. The decor was extremely tired, with the furniture in need of updating. The bathroom was very much out of date and in desperate need to renovation. The breakfast was exceptional, a real full... More

Firstly the good points: the hotel was in a good location (as the name suggests it was facing the sea) and the staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel needs a bit of money spent on it and the dark brown furniture gives the small rooms a gloomy feel. Parking (as others have pointed out) is a big problem as... More

We stayed as a family of 4 for 2 nights, we were in a family room which overlooked the laundry and bins, but was advised that all the family rooms are at the back so I suppose we wouldn't have got a better view in another room. Our bed was 2 single beds zipped together which was spacious and comfortable.... More

Great little hotel, lovely rooms, excellent food and very helpful staff. We stayed one night on couples retreat deal and floated out the next day!! Would highly recommend to couples or anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing night away. Being pet friendly and right on the beach was a bonus! Thankyou

Crerar Hotels you really need to give your staff a product they deserve and their hard work merits. From the lady at reception(who organised a fruit platter & dips as it was our wedding night- a lovely thought thank you), the gentleman who helped us with our luggage to the spa assistant they were excellent. However, other than the conservatory,... More

The hotel is set right on lovely Oban Bay. I guess some rooms have a lovely view and the bar patio was nicely located for view. Our double room was so tiny we could only open one of our suitcases. It was very hot and cramped and the window did not open well. View of the car park. The restaurant... More

I stayed for two nights in August, travelling alone and had a great stay at the Oban Bay Hotel. The room was comfortable with a view of the bay. All in all this was a wonderful hotel, friendly and attentive staff, excellent food, what more could anyone want?!

We stayed at this hotel last week for a 3 night break booked through Classic Britain. Good price for 2 nights DBB and 1 night BB. I booked a sea view room as it was our anniversary and we are retired and having read the previous reviews didn't want to regret our stay or room. I am glad we did... More
