Lack of adequate parking was forgiven when they staff took time to juggle rooms on a very busy weekend to give us rooms together. Rooms are really quite small but have everything you need. Great staff.

The rooms are adequate, but the public areas are great. The sun room, the restaurant and the bar/lounge area created great memories for us.. I recommend this hotel for anyone who finds themselves going to Oban. It is also within walking distance of most sights. The view is wonderful.

We have been traveling around Scotland for almost 2 weeks. Such a lovely country. The view from the sunroom here at Oban Bay Hotel is lovely, overlooking the bay. The hotel itself is average. It is clean, the staff nice, but the rooms are small and basic, the breakfast is adequate.

Short get away. Food decent quality. Service, quick, polite and with a smile. Rooms tidy, beds a decent size. View from front of the hotel absolutely breathtaking.

We have just come back from an excellent couple days away. This hotel was great, staff were very friendly, rooms were nice and clean. Lovely bar area over looking the water. Very central for everything. Not a lot of parking, but there were plenty free on street parking just up the road. Would definitely go back.

A 1 night stay here after leaving mull, on the way to Edinburgh. the corridors were a maze and after being given bad directions from the receptionist, we found our room, which had a partial ocean view, comfortable beds and a heated towel rail (a definite bonus in March!). There were plenty of towels, hair and body wash, and a... More

Great Hotel, easy walk to the shop, attractions and Ferry Terminal. A few stairs so not suitable for people with mobility problems. Nice helpful staff, good food and clean room. Hot tub is outside but great fun! Sauna and steam room are small but usable.

They were also most helpful and accommodating to the numerous requests for variations to numbers and room changes. On arrival we were welcomed with the same pleasant accommodating manner. The...

Stayed here for a party night at Christmas ( bit late doing my review ) Severe lack of parking, was told I could go back along the road and up behind a church to park, handy. I had two cases and two outfits on hangers and struggled in the many doors with them to check in. I was given a... More
