About Oban Bay Hotel

The Oban Bay & Spa enjoys a premium location on the Esplanade of Oban’s near-perfect horseshoe bay. Relax in the outdoor hot tub and gaze over to the island of Kerrera in the distance.

Many of the comfortable rooms have fantastic views over the bay, but if you need to rest the black-out curtains will help keep the room dark. Satellite TV, tea and coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi are available in all the rooms, and complimentary toiletries and bottled water greet guests on arrival.

The hotel spa features a sauna and steam room, and the lobby is furnished with armchairs positioned around a wood-burning fireplace.

The Rannachan Restaurant serves locally caught seafood and a variety of hearty Scottish classics for an evening meal. The Atlantic Bar has a range of refreshments and scotches available.

20 minutes’ walk from Oban bay & Spa is the Glencruitten Golf Club, and Dunollie Castle is ten minutes’ walk away.

Positive Reviews

Seafront location and right in the middle of town

Step outside to the fresh sea air blowing, and walk along the seafront to explore the town of Oban The central location of Oban Bay & Spa makes it a great base for exploring the variety of restaurants, pubs and shops in this picturesque Scottish coastal resort.

Delicious hotel breakfast starts the day on the right track

Plenty of choice for breakfast and efficient waiting staff make for an enjoyable dining experience in the morning Make sure you try the haggis for a genuine Scottish breakfast!

Experience the outdoor hot tub with views looking out over the bay

One of the unique added extras here has to be the outdoor hot tub, where you can unwind and let your muscles relax while gazing out over the bay Even more fun during winter when it is freezing outside!

Negative Reviews

Some carpets and furnishings look a bit worn out

Being an old hotel its appearance is starting to go downhill, so you might find that the carpets are a bit grubby or the paint work is not up to scratch If you encounter broken bathroom fittings or peeling wallpaper in your room request a change from reception.

The spa facilities should be improved

Oban Bay & Spa advertises itself as a spa hotel, so they should really bring their spa up to scratch The sauna and steam room are dated and not really adequate for the capacity of the hotel.

Serious lack of parking outside the hotel

With just a handful of parking spots available directly outside the hotel you might find yourself having to use the nearest public car park a few hundred metres away.
