My family stayed at this hotel and it was a really good place to stay, the staff were friendly and helpful. Jason and Jordan served our breakfast with great wit and charm, the bar tender made the best coffee with cream on the side we have had in years and the beauty therapist was excellent. We won’t hesitate to stay... More

Recently stayed the The Oban Bay Hotel, family of 3 adults, and after a rather unfiriedly greeting from a receptionist who did not lift her head when we arrived and just repeated "Three o'clock" the situation was immediately recovered by Sharon Houston, General manager, who welcomed us and checked our reservation. Our room was very clean, each of us had... More

Such a disappointment, reception in darkness, dark dingy room, nasty colour, tiny en suite rust around taps rust and limescale on effort that they called a shower space so tight when you sit on toilet bowl you hit the toilet roll holder which was loose on the wall. Staff were also as unhappy as us to be their as they... More

Whatever you are told, whatever the small print says in the hotel literature in the bedrooms, there is NO PARKING at this hotel and you CAN'T reserve any. If you arrive at peak time, all the arriving guests will be driving around the town desperate to park at the same time. Clearly a risk if your car is full of... More

Lovely comfortable hotel with amazing food and really friendly staff. Had a lovely weekend and the bowl of fruit was a nice touch. Abit noisy in the morning with early risers using their showers and going past our room to the lifts but this was minimal so didn't spoil our stay. For those inclined the spa and hot tub was...

This hotel has a great location - the lounge has one of the best views possible. However, the room we had was extremely ordinary (small and in the back of the hotel). The hotel is in need of some maintenance - worn carpets and some very outdated rooms. The staff were very polite and helpful - and they went out... More

Having called ahead to check if we could get food when arriving late and being told yes, we arrived to be told no. No parking left so had to drive around and find a space down a back street. The room was tired and generally worn around the edges, when I closed the curtains the net curtain and pole fell... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and the staff couldn't do enough for us, we enjoyed the food and they made us up a breaky to go as we were leaving early one morning. The only problem we found was we couldn't just walk into the dining room, you had to book, but they did serve us good meals from... More

This hotel was the last stop of our honeymoon. Absolute disgrace from the start. Parking was 1/2 mile from the hotel, we arrived soaking wet. On arriving to our room i had ordered a fruit platter, picture says it all, £7.99 for a orange, pear and apple 2 strawberry and 2 grapes stuck in a cereal bowl, complete disgrace. Our... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Staff were very friendly, food was excellent, comfortable surroundings for a peaceful drink. Rooms clean and tidy. Never took up the opportunity to use the spa facilities. Spent alot of time going around Oban visiting the pubs where we were made welcome and the local Wetherspoons recently opened in the area. Will definitely visit again.
