  • 8.0.Very good

    This was our third stay over the years as Oban is a nice place to relax. There’s been a lot of money spent up-grading the restaurant and entrance seating but it’s a big hotel and continuously needs upgrades in other areas. Service was okay, but we had a waitress that came across very harsh and sometimes rude. Didn’t explain anything on menu or specials! Might have just been a bad day : ) There was a waiter on aswell who was waaaay more welcoming and friendly and his knowledge was second to none. (I overheard him at another table explaining to a gentleman about the steaks and helping him order what he wanted) Food at night was okay, but did think if it has a rosette it needs a extra lift. It’s just the little things that need tweaked. As the steaks were good, but if finished with sea salt on boards, they would be great. Just little things! If chasing stars/rosettes that’s what’s needed. Would defiantly be back again : )

    Thoroughly recommended.

    I was impressed by the Oban Bay, it’s in a lovely location and has recently been refurbished. Our room (room 7) and bathroom were both beautiful and with a stunning view over the sea and islands. Great food too - the same menus as at the Loch Fyne hotel but cheaper. Well recommended and particularly dog friendly.

    Great hotel

    The check in was poor, took a long time for each guest to check in, that was my only fault as the rest of hotel including rooms, bar and restaurant were all excellent

    Great hotel for relaxing break

    Spent 3 days at hotel in classic double. Room clean, comfortable and in good condition. Nice shower room. Great breakfast with ample choices on menu. Enjoyed a lovely meal in restaurant on our first night. Staff very helpful and friendly. Lovely views over Oban bay from at front of hotel. Very relaxed atmosphere in all public areas in hotel. Great hotel for couples. Overall enjoyed our stay. However hotel has quite a lot of steps and stairs throughout the building making it a bit challenging for people with mobilty issues. Also very limited parking within hotel grounds and would advise customer to check with hotel to get info on off site parking prior to visit.

    Your head waiter was fantastic. There was a drunk lady at the table next to ours and he dealt with her professionally. He gave her a chance to behave but a little later she started again. He then asked her to Move to the bar area. Well done lad.
