      Historical Traveler Reviews Oban Bay Hotel & Spa

      Great Hotel

      from

      We have always enjoyed staying in this hotel as the staff are so friendly and helpful. Now that it has been refurbished it is even better. The icing on the cake!! We shall be back .

      Wonderfully refurbished

      from

      Just stayed at the Oban Bay hotel in Oban.

      WOW....having stayed there 12 mnths ago, it was almost unrecognisable.

      More like a 4 star than a 3 star, with great rooms, friendly staff & wonderful food.

      I hear theres even a hot tub being put in....i will def be back

      Great Time and very friendly staff

      from

      Enjoyed this Hotel as soon as we entered through its doors, it was welcoming and v/warm, a bonus where it is situated and excellent rooms, views, very clean and quiet away from the main road. The town is only a matter of minutes away and has an excellent assortment of bars and restaurants.

      Ferry and rail terminals are adjacent to each other, and well priced for a ferry over to Mull..there are other destinations available.

      The entertainment could have been a little better, but with the space alloted to the entainer he did his best. The breakfasts and dinners are good..(book your time for these meals the day before) and just ask for more toast. Enjoy...

      Homely and welcoming

      from

      We have just returned from a week in the Oban Bay Hotel. I have to say, despite the terrible weather, we were most impressed by the hotel. The room was clean comfortable and more than adequate, the staff were very helpful and friendly, food and restaurant service was first class. The hotel conservatory, which runs the whole length of the building offers an excellent viewing point for the bay. All in all we would highly recommend this lovely hotel, we certainly feel we were well looked after and without a doubt it was certainly excellent value for money.

      Great Food, welcoming staff and Spectacular Views

      from

      We have stayed here many times (when we can get in) and it really is a lovely, homely hotel with friendly welcoming staff. The food is superb and the hotel is only a spit away from the town and right on the sea front.

      The rooms are clean and comfortable and the management is always at hand should you require anything! They even gave us an extra single room next door with a shower to use as our room did not have a shower.

      Just a pity they are always full in the summer unless you book early! -Ask the receptionist for a room with a view in the front building before you arrive and your sorted!

      Never again

      from

      Not what we expected from British Trust Hotels. Had to request change of first room offered , very dirty, dark, stank of smoke. No shower faclities in any rooms , so we were informed. Preffered to accept a twin room--slightly cleaner, less "smoky" room. Furniture basic, old, and quite tacky(MFI????). Snail trails in dining room. Disgusting standard of accomodation.

      Have to say on whole ---staff were pleasant and food good, But we would never return. Not what one would expect of a so called prestigious Oban Hotel. Very Poor show!!! Have stayedin other British Trust Hotels (not Oban) and they have been excellent--- this one was appaling---dont know how they get away with it!!!

      What a view

      from

      More than an adequate place to stay. Would have been nice if there had been a shower. Room was neat and clean, and the staff helpful. The food was certainly super.

      Avoid this hotel like the plague!!

      from

      This is quiet possibly the worst hotel experience I have ever had in the UK. The floor of my room was very dirty and obviously hadn't been vaccuumed for weeks; there was no shower in my ensuite bathroom (something I feel I should have been told when booking); there was no hot water. At all. Not just cold water coming out of the hot tap, but NOTHING coming out of the hot tap. There wasn't even a phone in my room so that I could phone to complain about the absence of a shower and the dirty carpets, The wallpaper had been scribbled on in pen by previous guests (children?); at breakfast, the orange juice was watered down so much it was almost completely tasteless; the Tupperware containers for the cereal were filthy - caked with dirt on the lids; the carpet in the dining room was filthy with what must have been many years worth of grime trodden in. Awful, awful, awful. I would rather sleep in a bus shelter than stay at this hotel again. Avoid at all costs!!!!

      Loved the grub+

      from

      Stayed here many times--great food; nice rooms---with lovely views from the large bay window in the lounge. pleasant staff.

      Disgrace and dirty

      from

      We had a holiday at this hotel and found the rooms dirty very dusty and carpets not cleaned or vacumned, and in the dining room there were snail trails along the carpets for th two days of our stay,which in our eyes is not hygenic, there were four in our group and although we did complain the letter was of not comfort to the thought we had of this hotel.

      ... in Oban for our final night. Adriana and I are across and up the road from the main building with the bunk rooms in a narrow three storey house with the two bed rooms. It's a cute place to stay and the weather is ok enough to be able to walk back down to join the group for games and drinks and pizza in the main building. Once again, we can't go out as the town is quite small and everything is closed for ...

      ... remainder of the journey was full of amazing scenery at every bend in the road, different Lochs and Lochans, hills, cliffs and open fields, but the one constant thing was , , , the rain, which was nothing if not predictable. We couldn't find the camp site we wanted, a second was under water and a third was very boggy so we decided to book into a B&B. Sadly, every B&B had a 'No Vacancy' sign and those that didn't were full also full?! The ...

      ... soldiers who built the road, as it is a long and steep climb to the peak so people would stop for a rest, and be thankful for being at the highest point.

      Returning to Oban we walked into town and then climbed up to McCaig's Tower, the imposing Colosseum inspired tower that sits at the top of a hill overlooking the town. The steep climb was worth it as the views over Oban and to the islands off the coast were amazing. ...

I was walking to get to the hotel we will stay at tonight when I asked a sanitation worker if he knew where it was. The scottish man told me I had to turn around and go back and up the hill down the road. I started to do that and about five minutes later the sanitation ...
