“Very comfortable”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Very comfortable and handy for town centre etc. Everything here one would need. Only thing is my friend, who has MS, finds is that the sofa's and beds are very low so has a problem getting up from them, especially as she is quite tall. Both fine for me being smaller and fitter! We were aware of the several steep steps up to the property.

“Soul food!”

My husband and I stayed in this fabulous apartment as part of my husbands 40th birthday celebrations and didn't want to leave at the end of the week. The view over the bay and the people watching from the lounge are first class. We loved the decor and art work and the bed was really comfortable. The private parking space was a bonus as parking in Oban seems to be a big issue, we were able to leave the car and walk every where due to the central location. Oban itself is a great wee town with loads to see and do and we have no doubt we will return.

“Adequate Appartment”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed a week in this appartment...the owners are nice people who always answered any queries promptly ..the view from the combined lounge /kitchen is of the bay and esplanade .
The appartment itself is quite cheaply furnished ...the main bedroom is without an external window...the other bedroom overlooks the back lane were the garbage bins are kept from one window and the other window over looks a car park and adjacent beer garden which can be quite noisy...both bedrooms have small double beds which have cheap bed linens.
The bathroom is without a window ... the shower has good water pressure.
The kitchen doesn't have a dishwasher....has a washing machine but no dryer....plenty of cooking utensils
Lounge furniture is quite shabby...window didn't open properly but apparently this is being replaced soon.... Wifi good
Our biggest issue was the over powering smoke smell when you entered the building....the worst I've experienced in a vacation rental property .
Overall if you are looking for basic no frills holiday rental this might suit your needs....

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments about Westbay Seafront Apartment. Westbay was built in the 1800's and was previously a sailing club, hotel and pub before being converted into apartments in the 1980’s hence the slightly unusual layout………lovely high ceilings, period features and large sea facing windows. There are glass doors between the rooms however so there is plenty of light in the main bedroom from the back bedroom and lounge and silence when the doors are closed, something guests usually like as this facilitates a good night’s sleep. Being so conveniently situated right in the centre of Oban there is a small short stay car park next door, a good pub with a fantastic beer garden with sea views a few hundred meters away and a lane at the back of the building that the neighbouring hotel use to access their kitchens and bin area which is situated 30 meters or so from Westbay. I don't imagine many town centre apartments have much to look at to the rear of the building neither do many have an uninterrupted sea view, private parking and a sea facing garden and seating. We have put time and effort into furnishing and decorating the apartment to a standard we would be happy to stay in ourselves. In the last year the whole apartment has been freshly painted and papered, had new carpets and flooring throughout, a new standard size double mattress, memory foam mattress toppers and fresh white cotton bedding (M&S and Next). None of which was 'cheap'. The new large sea facing windows we are due to have fitted in the lounge in the coming weeks are not 'cheap' either but a necessary upgrade to keep the apartment up to the standard we strive to offer our guests. We do not advertise that we have a dishwasher or tumble drier and are priced accordingly in comparison to our competitors who do. We do however provide plenty of washing up liquid, dish brushes and sponges, dish drainer, dish towels and clothes horse and hangers for drying clothes. Finally Westbay is made up of 8 apartments, ours being the only holiday rental, the others are all lived in long term. The smell of smoke in the foyer may have been coming from one of these apartments or someone smoking at the front door. Unfortunately we don't have any influence over what the other residents do in their own homes but we are thankful the smell was only at the entrance to the building and not in our gorgeous non-smoking apartment. Overall if you are looking for a 5 star hotel perhaps paying the going rate for one might find you something that suits your needs.....

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We rented this flat for a week and it was brilliant. The location is perfect being literally 5-10 minutes from the ferry port and all the attractions between. We had one or two issues with the flat and that is why a four point rating is given but these issues have were immediately addressed by the owners. They are a very pleasant and helpful couple and respond very quickly to any difficulties. The flat was perfect for a couple with all the facilities we would want. We would recommend the flat and the parking space, whilst potentially tricky, is a definite bonus and we would certainly return there.
