Rated 4 out of 5.
The only draw back is the leisure facilities are very poor compared to other Crerar Hotels also they don't actively offer you the small items on the breakfast menu eg crossiants / yoghurts/orange juice but overall staff good and food was nice would go back ...
Rated 5 out of 5.
Another excellent stay at Oban Bay. The only slight disappointment was that the in-house parking facility for those who had booked Bay-View Rooms (us) had been removed earlier in the month, without any notice given to pre-booked customers. Previously this had been included in the cost of the Bay-View rooms. Reception advised us to contact Easy Breaks re a possible refund. That apart, excellent service as ever....
