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

Visited area in March and spent one night at the Oban Bay Hotel and Spa. Hotel was in a great location close to town centre and with private car park. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Twin bedroom booked was modern and spotlessly clean with complimentary toiletries in the immaculate bathroom. Both my daughter and I chose the steak from... More

I stayed here for one night enroute to Uig for business. We arrived very late and the receptionist was busy on her computer and didn't notice me. I was allocated a spacious double room with a beautiful sea view. The furniture in the room looked tired and dated and in need of some minor renovation. The bathroom was also looking... More

Nice hotel, little pricy for what you get but overall ok. We had a family of 4 in a twin. Place was clean and staff friendly. Breakfast was excellent and bar was ok also. Good location on the water front overlooking the harbour....book ahead if you can, it was packed and we got the one of the last 3 rooms.

Booked a two day spa break and requested room upgrade to sea view. When we arrived, all the sea view rooms were allocated but we were offered an upgrade to one of the suites for the second night. The double room we had on the first night was ok - clean and comfortable - but only had a view of... More

This is a big rambling hotel. I guess there may be varying sizes and qualities of room. We certainly had a small one, very cramped with 2 suitcases. Bathroom clean enough, but the whole hotel corridors and doors etc looked like they needed a lick of paint. The lounge area was pleasant with a good range of malts. Staff very... More
