My wife and I recently stayed at the Oban and we could not have been happier with our experience. We stayed for 2 nights, in a premium room.
The room was spacious, very well appointed, and the bed was incredible to sleep in. In room there were multiple pillow choices, so our sleep was one of the most comfortable to date. The room was clean, and stayed spotless during the duration of our visit. The housekeeping staff were friendly every day. Windows opened to fresh air from the lake, and the atmosphere of the rooms is one of modern comfort.
We had dinner one night in the dining room as a part of a package. What a good call that was on our part! We were able to choose three courses each, and every single one did not disappoint. The meal moved along at a great pace, and the service was attentive and friendly. The sommelier Kim made some great wine recommendations and made the mood of the meal downright perfect. Thanks Kim!!
We took advantage of adding spa to our package, and my wife had a facial and I a massage. The spa staff were literally the best we have yet to experience. Both the asthetician (Monica) and the massage therapist (Irmi) said they had been with the owner for over 15 years, saying they loved working for her because of her high standards and enthusiasm. This showed in the treatment we received. Relax is not even the word for it - we were in heaven!!
To make it a perfect weekend, we added a wine tour through the property with Denis. This was by far the highlight of our weekend. Denis brings an intoxicating zest for wine to the experience, and our 4 hours with him flew by. Even if you don't stay at this property, please take the time to book a wine tour with this man. From France, his passion for wine is so evident, and his private tours make you feel like the most special person in Niagara on the Lake. While the other tours were shuffled off buses with name tags stuck to their shirts, we exited from our Mercedes private car and did private tastings in special parts of the winery while being educated on each and every wine we tasted. And we learned that our tour was better priced than those group bus ones! Imagine!
We look forward to returning to this charming, kind property, where all of the staff put so much heart into everything. For anyone looking for a quiet place in Niagara on the Lake, we'd highly recommend this property.
