Set on the edge of Oban's picturesque Esplanade, Oban Bay Hotel is the ideal base from which to explore Scotland’s west coast. Convenient for the train and ferry terminals it is ideal for both leisure and business guests. The modern bedrooms and luxurious suites are appointed to a very high standard.

Oban Bay Hotel

Had a great stay at Oban bay hotel.

We were greeted by an extremely friendly and helpful woman and she explained where to pack and gave us choices for dinner. The room was nice but, we paid for the superior room and expected it to be better than what it was. The room was only heated by two electric heaters but they barely made a difference and there wasn't a light at the mirror at the door. The bathroom also needs a bit of work done to it. It was a bit cramped and bare to be "superior". Other than that we had a great stay and we did like the room but just felt that it wasn't superior. Would highly recommend people to stay here and we would come back but we wouldn't bother paying more for the superior room

Hi there,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to write your review, your kind comments are much appreciated by all of the team.

I have taken your comments on the superior room you were allocated into consideration and have also passed them on to head office who operate a rolling programme for the decoration of all Crerar Hotels.

I look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Kindest regards,

Sharon Houston,

General Manager
