Stayed at the Oban Bay Hotel 3 years ago and really enjoyed the food and the carpets then: although threadbare were at least clean. It has deteriorated now to the point of no return: it needs complete refurbishment the carpets throughout are filthy and the rooms although clean are dated and claustrophobic . The breakfast was awful one sausage and... More

Stayed for 2 nights with a friend. We are young and in good physical shape and just getting to our room was a challenge. Lots of half flights of stairs to drag bags through. The shower was extremely tiny and the room offered no frills. The staff offered no help in explaining things to do in town, though one man... More

Couldn't fault this hotel and facilities. We booked 2 night Manager's Special DBB. Food outstanding! Very,very efficient,friendly staff! A credit to the place. Spa facilities and 'Hot Tub' an added bonus. Room comfortable and although at the back we still had a view of the sea! thank you Oban Bay and we shall definately return!

This hotel is a real gem with very comfortable accommodation, delicious meals and excellent service with a personal touch. One could get lost in this place with its split levels and winding halls, but that only adds to its charm. There is a sense that locals love this spot as well, as they can be seen sipping a drink on... More

Had a two night stay here. We came by train so can't comment on the parking, although the car park did seem very busy. Our double room was very small and had a partial sea view. The room was clean and comfy and the shower room compact! The lounge area is nice with lovely views over the bay. The restaurant... More

I went to Oban Bay hotel for two nights with my boyfriend for a wee romantic trip away, having been to a number of Crerar hotels in the past we were looking forward to it. I checked out reviews on trip advisor and felt disheartened about the negative reviews, but as my boyfriend had booked the trip under a "flash... More

Stayed here for a spa weekend with my friend. The facilities (jacuzzi/steam room) were broken but we were given a fantastic discount and compensated. This didn't put a downer on our weekend. Mary the receptionist is fab! Claire the massage therapist couldn't have been more helpful with magic hands. The staff were great. Good was amazing breakfast and dinner. Will... More

Nice room, quiet and comfortable. It is an overnight stop for tour buses. Lobby a bit congested at about 9, but we got through it. Helpful staff.

Our group of 5 booked a double and triple for three nights starting the last Friday in July. Oban was extremely busy and fully booked. The bad news first. Guests should be warned that there are only a few parking spaces and parking is about 400 feet away. This hotel is not good for those with mobility problems as there... More

We stayed here, having missed the last ferry for our trip to Mull. It was gorgeous. We stayed in a luxury room overlooking the bay, with a four poster bed and leather armchairs. More than made up for the disappointment of missing the ferry. The bar food was excellent. Other parts of the hotel are a little dated, but we... More
