I had already booked a special deal before reading some scary reviews of this hotel, boy was I surprised! The positives are that all the staff were superb very professional, attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent and of a high quality.very quiet and maybe not for families although I have no doubt that they would be catered for.... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times and each time we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Yes the rooms at the back are typical generic hotel rooms but the service, the staff and quality of food ensure that guests have a memorable stay. I agree with a comment from a previous guest about the shower, it must be... More

But I have to say that my husband and I have just returned from our stay at the Oban Bay hotel and we had a wonderful time.

The lady on reception on arrival and check out was very missable and I was made to feel guilty when I complained about the noise from the floor above during the night. As a single travel I was made to feel like an inconvenience if your with a group booking then you seemed to get treated better due to trying... More

Only had a one night stay -therefore adequate for our requirements. We hadn't booked their parking but no problem on the street just up from the hotel. Room was small - not a lot of space for 2 people to move around. The shower was very small! One of the smallest I've ever been in - shame for anyone a... More

Bitterly disappointed with this hotel! You need to be fit to stay here as it is quite a long walk with lots of steps to 'new' bedroom section at the back - we had a dreadful dark dingy room overlooking the bins in the back yard! No light in the bathroom shower and I certainly would not use it as... More

Mixed review here. Staff and service were great throughout our short stay, however this hotel is not great for anyone with mobility problems nor for late bookings without car parking ( had to park a fair hike away). Breakfast was delicious and served super-fast, but main restaurant and bar pretty pricey for quality delivered. No elevator in parts of the... More
