stayed for 3 nights, views are fantastic, just a short flat walk to shops, pubs, restaurants etc. did not have a sea view but plenty of room to sit in lounge and watch the boats go by and admire the scenery, never had evening meal but breakfast was fine, we took the car on the ferry to mull, ferryport 2 mins. from hotel, great day out, if we go back would use hotel again

Firstly i have to say that the room i had in this hotel was clean and warm and the meal i enjoyed in the evening (scallops - try them) was absolutely excellent.A couple of things spoiled my trip though - i was allocated a room righ tnext to where renovations are taking place.These started up before 8am in the morning and made it impossible to sleep - i had been looking forward to a lie in as i had several meetings coming up in the town.It would have been handy to know that this work was ongoing when i booked but it wasn't mentioned at all even at check-in.That same morning at 9.20am someone chapped on my door and walked in as i was in a state of undress - i assume it was housekeeping staff but surely they check who has vacated their rooms before they clean them?Not very proffesional at all.

As i say the food was fantastic and the bar staff friendly and attentive.Just a shame other things spoiled my stay.

I stay in the Oban Bay every 2 weeks and i cannot fault the place, the views/rooms/facilities//food/staff are all fantastic. This is my fourth year on the trot staying here and i wouldnt stay anywhere else in Oban whilst i'm up there. Before i stayed with the Oban Bay i tried numerous hotels within Oban and none of them even came close. Superb place to stay for either business or pleasure, i have stayed for a weekend many a time for pleasure and its been great. For people on business its the perfect place to unwind and relax either in the sauna/outdoor hot-tub or even with a glass of wine watching the world go by with the fantastic views it has to offer.

Had a great stay here in oban spa hotel room was clean food great most of the staff were extremely helpful, until one night i had difficulty sleeping so didnt want to wake my family to make a cuppa so went downstairs and asked night porter man if it would be possible to get a hot drink and had money their to pay i explained im not a great sleeper
but was told no that is not the policy of the hotel. the dining room could be warmer apart from that i would recommend this hotel and definently go back again soon the decor is outstanding just had carpets all re-fitted you really feel relaxed and the views are stunning from sun lounge to sit in. had a go in the hot tub steam room this was great !!!

Of the many visits I and my wife have made to OBAN,this hotel was,without doubt,the best so far.The rooms were clean and of a high standard and were serviced each day to a similar high standard.The meals were excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful.I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel for future visits and would,without doubt,highly recommend it to others. Thanks to the staff at the hotel for making our stay a pleasant one.
