Firstly, the views from the bedroom were stunning. We stayed in this lovely little hotel for 2 nights. It was warm, welcoming and the food was delicious. We opted for the 6 course set menu each night and were not disappointed. The service was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed 2 full Scottish breakfasts in the restaurant each morning and it... More

The hotel is good value if booked in advance, the outdoor hot tub was constantly in use but it was the weekend and the hotel was busy. The single malt whisky, The Oban, as recommended by the barman, tasted like a cheap blend which was a shame but whisky is very personal.... I was surprised to find a 2% charge... More

It's the fourth time we've stayed at this hotel and we will hopefully be back again next year. The views are spectacular and if you don't have a sea view room then you can relax in the bar for a panoramic scene. The hotel is clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. We had DBB and the six course... More

5 of us stayed here recently and the trip was enjoyed so much by all that we have decided to return again in April. We couldn't fault a single thing. The service, food and bedrooms were first class but the icing on the cake was the hotels location and the breathtaking views. Stunning. A great hotel. Well done to the... More

Stayed here as a late Valentine's treat and I wish we'd been able to stay for longer! We stayed in one of the suites, which are fabulous and really reasonably priced. The views are stunning too. I particularly appreciated the claw foot bath as a nice added touch of luxury. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was... More

Had a 2 night stay with my wife recently. Good points:- Food is absolutely brilliant (the 6 course taster was tremendous, had this both nights and was fit to burst) The staff were all really polite and friendly at all times. It is in a lovely location with amazing views. The bar overlooking to bay is a fantastic way to... More

I stayed here some time ago and hopefully things have improved. We stayed for 2 nights and seriously considered cancelling the second and getting out of Dodge that's how unhelpful and unfriendly the staff were. We arrived from Mull (as many, many guests do judging by the parade of cars leaving the ferry headed for the row of hotels) and... More

As your comment is over 11 months old, I apologise I can not give you much input to your comments as I have been the manager since May 2014, therefore, no knowledge of the staff at that time. I believe, borne out by recent guest feeback, in my 9 months, we have made much progress and our guests are experiencing... More

We spent 3 nights in the Oban Bay while we were visiting the SAMs facility. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly. The rooms were as all hotel rooms , but were particularly warm on our first night which just required turning off the electric heater. The only drawback we found was the Wifi was very slow. I...
