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

We visited Oban Bay hotel & Spa for our honeymonn and we were not disappointed. When we arrived the staff were busy and under pressure but still managed to keep smiling and welcomed us. Shortly after we brought a lovely fruit platter as a congratulations. I myself am a vegan and at times I struggle to get food but not... More

I stayed here for two nights with my elderly parents. We were delighted with the rooms and the service. Rooms were clean and comfortable and well appointed with free wifi (excellent wifi reception). Staff were friendly and courteous, both at the front desk and in the restaurant. The food was first class - the inclusive dinner was a 6 course... More

Heard about the legendary friendly, Scottish welcome? Don't expect to receive it here. In fact, the Wicked Witch of the West appeared to be moonlighting when we arrived and a night's sleep did nothing for her demeanour the next day when we were leaving. In between, the hotel was typical of it's kind - if a bit tired around the... More
