Here at Crerar Hotels, we are doing what we can and we’re in good company ... the spirit of hospitality has been here for everyone before, and will be now and forever.


Set on the edge of Oban’s picturesque Esplanade in the heart of Argyll, Oban Bay Hotel is the ideal base from which to explore Scotland’s West Coast. Convenient to the train and ferry terminals, it is ideal for both leisure and business guests to become immersed into the Scottish Highlands.  

Oban lies central enough for a weekend break, longer family holiday or a relaxing break away. The hotel’s spacious sun lounge offers a panoramic view of the bay, the island of Kerrera and the mountains of the Isle of Mull and is suitable for all sorts of events. Modern bedrooms and spacious suites are appointed to a good standard, those front facing benefiting from seaside views. 

The stylish Atlantic Bar serves hearty meals throughout the day and the Grill Room showcases the very best of Oban’s local produce.  The restaurant offers a daily changing menu (depending on the catch of the day!) and a carefully constructed a la carte menu featuring fresh, local seafood and a selection of classic dishes that have been given our twist.

If it’s a break away from the hustle and bustle of city life, then Oban provides that perfect retreat. Use the steam room and sauna and take in expansive views of the bay to help you feel a million miles away from everyday life.
