You may not know this but Oban played a vital part in the Cold War as it was the western landing point for the first Transatlantic Telephone Cable – the cable which carried the hotline between the presidents of the USSR and the USA.
Take up today’s Big Deal with the Oban Bay Hotel & Spa and you’ll have a hotline to a holiday in of the most romantic spots on Scotland’s West Coast.
This atmospheric hotel on the picturesque esplanade is the perfect spot from which to explore Oban – the Gateway to the Islands.
All the rooms have been restored to the highest standards and most enjoy stunning views. They all feature a private bathroom, hairdryer, TV and hot drinks facilities along with complimentary WiFi.
The offer is for a one or two consecutive nights stay in standard double or twin in the Oban Bay Hotel & Spa with a full Scottish breakfast each morning and a three course table d’hote dinner on the first night.
Fresh & local seafood
The hotel’s Rannachan Restaurant specialises in fresh, local seafood and organic produce, all served with a smile. They source their fish from Willie Fish whose family-run shop is well known locally for supplying maritime marvels fresh off the boat.
Outdoor hot tub
As well as an out door hot tub with one of the best views in the world, the hotel has a mini-spa which offers treatments such as hot stone massage, reflexology and face and body sensation. Use of the sauna and steam room is included in the deal.
Alternatively, you could just chill in the spacious sun lounge and gaze at Mull, Kerrera and the Firth of Lorne.
Stretch your legs
If you want to stretch your legs then there is plenty to do in Oban. You could visit Oban Distillery, walk to McCaig’s Tower or stroll up Pulpit Hill for a superb view out over the town. Ganavan Sands are not far away and there are loads of opportunities nearby for golf, walking or boat trips.
Previous visitors have written glowingly of their stay at the Oban Bay Hotel & Spa. This is what one recent TripAdvisor reviewer had to say:
‘A lovely hotel with very professional staff who were friendly and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable indeed. The hotel is in an excellent position, right on the sea front, just a very short walk to town centre. Our room was very clean and quiet and the beds were very comfortable. It was cleaned daily to a really high standard. The food was excellent and the restaurant itself was run in a professional way… I have absolutely nothing but praise for this hotel and for the staff and would highly recommend it to anyone.’
