“Fantastic Apartment in Great Location”
Reviewed May 20, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

Lots to say about this place. First of all, the location is very close to the Ferry/Train and Bus ports. Easy walking distance of 5 minutes. Likewise, it's only 5 mins back into the town. The apartment or Flat is located on the second floor of 3 levels. Stairs only into this property.

Very modern and welcoming. Lovely, clean and scented smell as you arrive in. There was a lovely welcome basket with some goodies for us, as well as a handwritten welcome card. Extra brownie points for the fresh flowers and the pint of milk in the fridge. The little things make the difference.

The flat comprises of two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen/diner, utility room and bathroom. The master bedroom has a double bed with a view onto the Harbour. Very spacious and nice decor. The second bedroom is a twin room and is a comfortable size but nowhere near as generous as the master bedroom. Beds were very comfortable and I think there was down bedding in the master room.

Large sitting room with fantastic views onto the harbour. Two large sofas, and single armchair, all very comfortable, could easily seat 7 people if required. Tv, games, iPod stereo, information guide and even the local paper. Very nice decor and furniture.

The kitchen was very well equipped with usual kitchen appliances and the utility room just off the kitchen. Dining table and 4chairs located in the kitchen. There was even bits and pieces left for kitchen use to start us off, use like a few washing tablets and dishwasher tablets.

As the location was just a few minutes from town centre, the outside road was quiet with traffic and quiet location. Close to all the amenities, harbour, shops, restaurants and bars. Lots of handy and useful information also listed in the flat.

It was really a lovely base for ourselves whilst we were in Oban for the Oban Live festival. There is nothing I could really fault with it. The windows are due to be replaced but it still didn't spoil the view. My only complaint is due to the age of the building plug sockets are limited, however, there are some plug extensions in the twin room. Nothing to really complain about but to be aware of.

As a part of 3 friends we really liked the apartment, location and service received. We'd definitely come back again.

Cannot Fault anything - from booking- receiving information for arrival- welcome pack.
This apartment has a view over the Oban- Bay to die for.
The fixtures & fittings are to the highest standard.
Thank-you for a superb short break holiday.

We have just returned from a 5 day break here.The apartment is absolutely gorgeous,very welcoming and ideally situated.
We were touched by the welcome basket that greeted us on arrival (milk,sugar&coffee sachets,fruit teas,kettle chips,laundry tabs,etc).All these wee touches were very much appreciated.
Definitely looking to book again for next year.

“Great family friendly apartment - loved it!”
Reviewed April 24, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Littlebay apartment was simply perfect in everyway - beautiful interior, very light and spacious!! It was nice too watch the ferries coming and going in such a great place where the children had loads of toys and a library just round the corner (which my son loved), also Oban centre is a short walk away as well local amenities.

Littlebay was immaculate with a fabulous welcome pack when we arrived, great touch! The kitchen was a good size which inc a utility room and the flat was well equipped with everything you would need for a great holiday (lovely soft towels too).

It is well worth a stay, you won't want to leave ;-)

“Five stars!”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Great apartment - bright and spacious, with everything you need. Ideal location, with gorgeous views. The fresh flowers and welcome basket were a lovely touch. Jane also quickly organised replacement bedding as one of our party is allergic to goose feathers. Excellent accommodation and excellent customer service. I've no doubt we'll book again!

“Perfection”
Reviewed January 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Second visit to Little Bay and it was perfect like before. Every thing that you good possibly want from a holiday let. The owners have thought of everything. The ideal location if you want the train, the ferry, the town. The flat is spotlessly clean and tidy and fresh... I wish i could own a place like here. We certainly will be back. Thanks to Jane and Kevin - keep up the wonderful job :>)
I have already recommended Little bay to a few colleagues. I hope they come your way as they don't know what they are missing.

“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.
