First impressions weren't too good especially with the sign of the hotel a bit wonky and the 'A' from Oban missing!! Not good. BUT, totally changed my mind after staying here for a few nights at Easter. Great sized triple room, on par with recent Hilton hotels we have stayed in. No view but not needed at night time! The...

The hotel is long of tooth. For those who arrive in Oban by ferry or train having a significant amount of luggage the walk to the hotel is a bit long. At arrival the desk clerk was not friendly. There is no lift. Getting to one's room is akin to negotiating a maze with multiple short climbs up and then... More

Spent a 3 night D.B.B break at the hotel over Easter weekend. Although this is a 3* hotel I definately rate the food, service and location as more 4 to 5 *.We have been to other Crerar hotels and feel the food is always of a high standard offering 6 courses at dinner(3 being little samplers but still delicious).

Me and my partner loved our time here! So relaxing, and the views are magnificent! You have full use of spa facilities (steam room, sauna etc) included in room price which is great! Stayed in Kerrera suite which had lovely double bath and great views! Choice of food is limited if you're really fussy (like me) but staff are happy... More

Turned up on "spec", having cancelled a booking elsewhere in Oban. This hotel does look a little tired - a coat of paint here and there, some brighter wallpaper, brighter lights in the lounge area and some varnish on the dining room tables would put a bit of sparkle back in. BUT, the views out the front lounge window just... More

The hotel is a little tired in places but not serious. The staff were so efficient they left us speechless and always charming. The food was some of the best I have had in any hotel in the UK for many years and certainly the best ever in Scotland. We had a perfect stay in Oban thanks to such a... More

The shampoo and shower gel were lovely and the shower perfect. The staff were so helpful, calm and polite and appeared really happy in there work. We had dinner and breakfast while we were... More

Never a good sign when you approach a hotel and the sign has letters missing. Overall this hotel is tired. Some attention to details in the soft furnishings couldn't hide that the rooms were in desperate need of attention. Is there a shortage of varnish in Oban? Not just the bedroom furniture, but the dining room tables also seemed in... More

We have just celebrated our Golden Wedding with a lunch for family and friends at The Oban Bay Hotel. The staff went out of their way to make our day very special and nothing was to much bother. Althought Alistair the manager could not be there we were left in the very capable hands of Daniel and his team. The... More
