“Hard to beat for comfort and style”
Reviewed November 12, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We have stayed in many self catering properties and are accustomed to them delivering just a little less than promised. This one is different!
We could not have asked for a more comfortable and well appointed property in which to base ourselves for a few days break in Oban, and I am sure we'll be back before long.

Liked best: The location, overlooking the ferry terminal.
Liked least: Lack of shelf/hanging space in the bathroom, but hardly crucial to our overall enjoyment.

“Perfect again!”
Reviewed October 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Just returned from my second stay at The Little Bay Apartment and it was just as lovely as the first time. It has everything you could want and need and is very comfy and homely.
Close to Oban town centre (5mins walk) and a great place to stay to tour round and visit more of Scotland and the Isles.
Thanks again to the owners for providing such a lovely place to rent.
I'm sure I will return again in the future.

“Fantastic views and convenient location”
Reviewed September 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a lovely family holiday at Little Bay Apartment. Ideally located for the train station and ferry terminal, perfect for a car-free holiday. Fantastic views from the living room and master bedroom - woke to the distant sound of the ferry announcements and it was great to watch the boats coming and going. Made visiting the Isles really easy. Apartment was clean, well-presented and equipped to a high standard, lots of space for a family of four. Lovely welcome pack of tea, coffee, biscuits, washing tablets, etc., comfy beds with fluffy pillows and duvets and towels all provided.

Supermarkets near by (we found a possibly unofficial short cut) and lots of restaurants made catering easy, lovely walks up to McCaig's tower, Pulpit Hill and (rather a long trek) on the Island of Kerrera, visible from the window.

Owner was really helpful in letting us arrive early with our suitcases and leave a little later so we didn't have to sit at the station with our luggage!

The doorway/ communal stairway was perhaps a little faded (although I like the Victorian style) and the stairs would probably not be ideal for anyone with mobility issues or a pushchair. Heard very little noise from other flats.

We didn't want to go home! Highly recommended.

“Lovely apartment in a nice town.”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed in this beautiful apartment with our two four year old children for one week. It was well furnished and spacious. Wonderful views across the bay and a short walk to the shops. Lots of kids toys and DVDs were provided and a well appointed kitchen. Highly recommended .

“Amazing”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

What a fantastic place. Really a home from home with everything you could possibly need. Lovely location and view. Owners spoiled us with a bottle of bubbles and box of chocolates as they found out it was our honeymoon. Only slight problem, which is advised, is parking but that couldn't spoil it.
