We spent 4 nights in this lovely hotel overlooking the ocean. Special shout out to Jordan and to the other staff who served us in the restaurant - very attentive, friendly and excellent tips on what to eat. Mary at reception was also very lovely. Will definitely return.

The hotel has a beautiful position overlooking the bay and the bar conservatory makes good use of this. The staff on Reception. in the bar and restaurant were very friendly and efficient. Sadly I'm struggling to say anything else positive about the Oban Bay. Our room was smallish and reasonably furnished but for the price we paid, it would not... More

Despite its rather dowdy interior and ramshackle buildings this hotel has a few pleasing features including a comfortable sun lounge overlooking the bay, meticulous servicing of rooms and pleasant hard-working international staff. Negative features are a lack of car parking, elderly mattresses, a vastly over-priced and poorly-cooked dinner menu, and an indifferent breakfast. I am puzzled why the hotel is... More

Stayed here one night, and yes the hotel was dated, however the location was excellent. Conservatory bar area looking out to sea was a highlight, Rooms spacious with comfortable beds, and excellent front desk service, especially Mary who was extra helpful and friendly. The restaurant was superb. We had dinner and breakfast and would have to say they were the... More

Just returned from 3 lovely nights here. Excellent food. Well cooked and presented. Very enthusiastic young staff in restaurant who were very attentive. Lovely lounge overlooking Oban's beautiful bay. Obviously an old building but very clean and comfortable room. Parking a bit difficult.

We we're booked in another hotel which didn't work out so we called in here on the off chance of a couple of rooms, they were extremely accommodating and gave us a special deal. The rooms were really lovely and clean, just that we were at the back of the Hotel and the window over looked a back street, (... More

My wife and I and my mother-in-law spent 2 nights here. We stayed here last year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay then. The food was once again first class as was the service in the dining room. Sharon, the manager, took the time to go round every table during dinner each evening to make sure all the guests were satisfied... More

The hotel is nice. The food is outstanding, the massage was brilliant. The room was dreadful. Not enough room to swing a cat and over priced. The receptionist had a real attitude problem and didn't seem to understand what a customer is. £110 a night. What a joke!

I found the hotel to be adequate however the shower was the smallest I have ever seen! All I can say is once you are in you are in. As an average size 12 woman I don't think my build is excessive so anyone more ample in figure will struggle. One other thing to note is the hotel charge £2... More
