Oban Inn, Spa and Restaurant
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 November 2010

The Oban Inn is a great place to celebrate a special event with a special person. We booked the Oban Suite, which is off the main building, with a dinner package. The suite was very nice and consisted of a living, dining, bedroom and a bathroom. Very well appointed with two flatscreen TVs. The king bed is very comfortable.
The dinner was fabulous and the service was very personal. Definitely recommend.

Excellent place to stay! The rooms are very good and the staff members are also very helpful (especially the front desk staff) . Very good location...

The breakfast is not that great considering the price (included in the room price) but other then that everything else is perfect! Would definetly stay at Oban Inn again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Spent the day and night at this SPA and have nothing but amazing things to say about it. The rooms are beautiful, the bed is amazing, clean, and nothing is forgotten. A complimentary bottle of wine was in the room when we arrived, and at night our bed was turned down and a rose placed on it. There is complimentary water bottles in the room as well. It truly was very lovely. Also, my husband and I did a couples massage that was out of this world and very reasonable priced. I also added a facial by Jenny and again nothing but rave reviews for this place. I would recommend this for a romance get away; or a weekend with girlfriends.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Ob an. A warm breakfast would have added to the experience. The dining room staff, bartender, desk and cleaning were professional, personal and made us feel very comfortable. Dinner was excellent and the menu had a wonderful variety of offerings. The exercise room was just great.

We wanted an off-season retreat. The Oban was lovely, very quiet. It's a nice distance from the main part of town... far enough away from the busy-ness that can be Niagara-on-the-Lake, but close enough that it is barely a 5 minute walk. Close enough to Lake Ontario shore for some lovely walks there too.

The food was quite good. Although they only offered a few options, and since we were staying over 2 days, it became quickly monotonous. I realize November is quite off-season, but still for the price we were paying I did expect a little more from the restaurant there. Still, our meals were pleasant, relaxing and we enjoyed our dinners very much.

Breakfast was probably the only thing I would complain about. For $26 for two of us we were offered: coffee, toast, a chilled hard-boiled egg, a bowl of melon slices and a 5-day expired diet yogurt. I did NOT enjoy breakfast at all, especially at that price! Breakfast never changes, so we opted to have breakfast somewhere else the second morning.

Typical of an older inn, the washrooms are really no different than a 'home' washroom, not large and not luxurious... but that is expected of a true, old inn. They didn't build large bathrooms back "in the day". Small regular tub, small sink, etc. But it was clean and shiny.

Air conditioning and heating was fine.

Small television, but we weren't there to watch TV, so that wasn't a big deal for us. Free wireless internet was fast.

Bed was large and comfortable and turned down every night. A long stemmed rose on our pillow at bedtime. (I tell ya, they could KEEP the rose and just spend that money on a better breakfast! Haha...)

The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We opted for a massage and a pedicure in the spa and both were very nice.

The Oban is our new favorite spot. The location in the heart of niagara wine country is ideal. The rooms are lovely and service exceptional. Booking by phone was a snap and personalized followup email a nice touch.

Spa was fantastic. Beautiful well laid out facility with excellent staff.

Restaurant was top rate - the chef is talented (smoked salmon with creme fraiche served with homemade potato chips - exquisite).

The Oban has it all!1

We won a night at this hotel, and we were really looking forward to it. It is not often we can "afford" to stay in a luxury hotel, and this was our anniversary so what could be better? Let me start with the positives - GREAT LOCATION - Right on Lake Ontario, 2 blocks from downtown Niagara-of-the-lake. Parking was included with the stay (BONUS). The STAFF was AMAZING - so friendly, helpful and attentive. The mentionables: There is a nice pool, outdoor jacuzzi and fitness room. The negative: The room was EXTREMELY small - Just enough room for a queen bed and about 2 feet to wak around the bed. The Shower did not close - Trendy Glass covered just HALF the shower, which made for a very chilly encounter. VERY VERY Noisy heat/Air Conditioning - we actually shut it off cause it was so noisy every time it turned on or off.... This made for a very warm night of sleeping, but that was better then the clicking on and off of the furnace.

There were nice bonuses included in the room, like complimentary bottled water, magazines in the rest room and continental breakfast was also included in the room rate.
