The short break I had was booked through a friend. Fantastic views from the conservatory across the bay. The hotel staff, in particular the restaurant staff, were excellent, as was the food. We had the taster menu included in our rate and whilst this was superb, it proved to be too much at times. However, unlike other hotel chains, if guests are on a dinner, bed and breakfast rate no allowance is given towards the A la Carte menu. Anything chosen was at a reduced price but additional to the dinner, bed and breakfast rate - buyer beware!!!

Marion and I spent 2 nights at Oban Bay and Spa on one of their special deals.We were treated by all the staff to true pampering (makes you feel important).The kitchen and dining-room staff deserve special mention, the meals were cooked,presented,served to a very high standard.A bigger car park would be good ,but we would not get the exercise of going to collect the car.I will be scanning the Crerar web-site hoping to find a deal that makes it possible to return .

My girlfriend and I stayed here in February and there wasn't anything I feel I could complain about. We had booked through a discount website so didn't expect much however the experience from start to finish was great! The room we had was, although basic, very clean and presentable. The view from the room wasn't fantastic however the hotel itself is in a great location overlooking the bay. The overall service was friendly especially at dinner. We ate in the restaurant both nights and couldn't be more impressed, excellent food, lovely menu and speedy service. We actually had to ask for a break in between meals the service was so fast. The staff even recommended a few places to carry on the night in town! We also had a treatment in the spa and even enjoyed the hot tub, despite it being February. Overall an amazing trip and I wouldn't hesitate to return or to recommend!!

We have just returned from our third short break at the Oban Bay Hotel and again, it was perfect. The staff are always very friendly and professional and the food is excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the bar has great views of the bay and the island of Kerrera. It is always a pleasure to stay at this hotel and we will definitely be back next year.

My wife and I have just returned from a two day break in this hotel. We were not looking for anything special simply wanted a short break. I can now say that this possibly was the best stay I have had in any hotel. It is very clean and very well run by an exceptionally friendly and efficient staff. The surroundings are very comfortable and the glassed in lounge to the front of the building gives a tremendous view across the bay. The bar is nicely furnished, very well stocked and has a vast array of Scotch whiskies available. The restaurant is well laid out and the food is fantastic.
We had room 363 on the third floor to the rear of the building and which we found very comfortable, clean and quiet. My thanks for a memorable break goes to the staff and management.

We visited the Oban Bay Spa in October and had a great time, so we decided to return on Sunday 13th April till Wednesday 16th, same deal as the last time and we were not disappointed. The food was beautiful from the lovely wee tasters served to you at the start to the gorgeous desserts at the end, service in the dinning room was professional and friendly. Breakfast was a lovely experience, the selection of food available has everyone covered. Our room was slightly smaller on this visit but the standard of cleanliness in the room could not be faulted. This is a place we would have no problems recommending to anyone. Big thanks to all the staff for the service they provided you are well worth a mention
