We have just returned from two night at the Oban Bay Hotel. what a disappointment. Our room was very small and dark and hardly any drawer space. The hotel lounges are badly needing refurbished. The couches and chairs are very worn and the floor is really needing sanded and varnished. The meals are ok, We were on dinner, bed and... More

Hotel sits right on the font with great view over harbour and out into the islands. Don't forget your camera. Hotel has very limited parking with guests having to park at rear of nearby Cathedral (2 mins walk away). Hotel has long siding corridor to rooms which are on many different fragmented levels.they are accessed by stairs or lift. Hotel... More

This is the second visit to this hotel We were really looking forward to going. We were staying in the same room The Kerrera suit. How disappointed we were. Peeling wallpaper, stains on the carpet, paper hankies stuck all round the windows. I can only assume this was to keep the draft out or to stop the rain leeking When... More

Very conveniently located on the North side of the Oban promenade. A short walk to the commercial section of the town. There are great views from the front of the hotel. The room was acceptable, the price ok considering the excellent breakfast was included. Parking was a little tricky and in great demand but we found parking behind the cathedral... More

The hotel is clean and they have a great front room that faces the harbor. It is a 10-15 minute walk to town. The desk manager is somber and not very helpful. The doors to the rooms are very loud so forget it if you want to sleep late. The Wifi is adequate.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Had 1 of the cheap rooms (at top, at back). Room was ok, could do with a facelift. Reception very helpful. Hotel in prime spot, just a walk from town centre. Limited parking. Lounge has excellent views overlooking Oban Bay.

I stayed there recently for a short two night stay. Overall I did enjoy my stay but I feel the prices they are charging for overnight accommodation is playing on the Crerar name. This hotel is in dire need of a major refurbishment. The seating in the lounge area is very worn, with the stuffing in the chairs and couches... More
