“Mr & Mrs James & Wendy Fowler”
Reviewed February 12, 2010

Well what can I say - Jim and I got married in the Oban Bay on 21st November last year and all I can say to everyone at the hotel is thank you so much for making our day so special. Everyone at the wedding commented on how professional all the staff were and how organised everything was - it went like clock work! The meal was superb and very plentiful. Darrell the General Manager was so helpful when organising everything and also on the day making sure we were happy with everything. The staff made us feel very special. We had our ceremony in the sun lounge over looking the bay and then drinks in the bar and then into the restaurant for our beautiful meal. If you are thinking of getting married in the beautiful town of Oban I would not hesitate to recomend the Oban Bay Hotel.

Cannot fault this hotel. Fantastic room, service, staff, food and quality. Stayed for Twixmas and we couldn't have been better looked after, which compensated for the poor hotel we had just left. Will certainly be going back.

We bought the Murder Mystery stay for a friends xmas present, and what a stay it was.

We had a double and our friends had a twin and both rooms were clean and tidy. The only complaints we have is the showers weren't very great, there was no real power in them and the temperature control wasn't the best.

The hotel very nice and in a great location and the staff were very friendly, The hotel was nearly full due to the M&M package but you would never have known. we got a seat for dinner and breakfast easy enough and never really had to wait for food.

You must try the hot tub and the massage chair.

We will definitely be going back.

Stayed January 2010, traveled with friends

Stayed at the Oban Bay Hotel with my fiance for the weekend.
Room was fair size and clean!!! Had a problem with a leaking shower, let reception know on the Saturday morning- said we understood it might not get fixed but extra towels would be great, back to room Sat evening- not fixed, no towels!! Only other bad point was you have to pre-book your space in the car park. My parents gave us this weekend as part of our Christmas, my Mother works in Thomas Cook and you would think this would be pointed out whilst booking???

Breakfast was good and you chose what you wanted off a menu with buffet style cereal, fruit and juice!
Spa area was great. Outdoor hot tub was pretty cool in january!!! Only downpoint was that there was no info about the Spa other than treatments offered in rooms.
Hotel is about a 5 mon walk to shops, bars etc. We went over to Mull for the day which was good to see!

This is our third trip to the Oban Bay and it is just as welcoming as the first. The staff are extremely friendly and a definite asset to the hotel, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are clean and have everything needed. Food was greatly enjoyed. Murder Mystery Night not our usual thing but we did enjoy it and it was great to have a dance at the disco really enjoyed it.
We would definately recommend this hotel A++++++++++++++
