Guest reviews for Oban Bay Hotel

3 out of 5

Great location, excellent breakfast.

Pros: Location, breakfast and pleasant staff especially in the dining room.
Cons: Bedrooms and common areas require upgrading.
Location: Oban has a fantastic setting and the hotel has a superb location on the Esplanade. Easily within walking distance of train station/ferry terminal.
We love the location of this hotel overlooking Oban Bay. The Sun Lounge is an ideal spot to enjoy a refreshment and admire the wonderful views. Staff are all very pleasant and welcoming. Standard of bedrooms is disappointing, but probably on a par with other accommodation offered in Oban hotels. Always wondered why standard overall in Oban is so poor bearing in mind that the area attracts a huge amount of tourists from home and abroad.

Shabby Hotel with no charm for quite a prize

Shabby Interior( like rotten curtains and chair, peeling walls..)severywhere ( not only my room) no charm or atmosphere Looks like as if there had been no improvments nor restauration since it was built. Not suitable for elderly as there are stairs ( often without handrail) everywhere and the staff never helped with the suitcases ( eventhough I offered my help to a couple, they staff didn't get the hint)

Nicht empfehlenswertes Hotel

Pros: Nichts
Cons: Abreisen und neu bauen
Das Hotel ist uralt und richtig schmudelig. Der Preist ist für den Zustand des Hotels eine absolute Frechheit.
