Really unhappy with this choice. Room 108 over the steakhouse and main road. Glazing inadequate, the noise was relentless. The cheap laminate flooring offered no noise insulation from above. The room occupants above got up at 000. They were less than considerate. Next night room 106 decided to test my patience by making noise. This was 01.30hrs. This was the... More

Nice hotel located in the small city of Oban. Everything is close by, including the distillery. The staff is nice and welcoming, the rooms are clean and well maintained. The general style might be old school, but it's all right.

I arrived at this Steakhouse with 3 star accommodation after an 8hr train journey. The hotel is a mere 10min walk from the train station/ferry port so is well located. Checked in and found the room clean (apart from the poo stains in the toilet..) and warm. TV didn't work so I popped downstairs to ask for help - to... More

Took my parents there for my dad's birthday and we weren't disappointed Excellent hotel, very modern, clean, and friendly, close to everything, ideal for the town and ferry port and with a decent car park at the rear Don't be fooled by the Steakhouse name, I was very well catered for as a veggie both at evening dinner and breakfast,...

I picked this hotel primarily because it had free parking. There is a large free parking lot behind the hotel, which is great because parking in this town is not trivial. I had wanted to stay closer to the center of town originally, but my research told me parking would be a problem. As it turned out, this place was... More

Comfortable hotel room, excellent reception staff, very welcoming and attentive. Some road noise as to be expected being on the main road but not too intrusive and very convenient location. Nice breakfast. Overall good value.

Is it a steakhouse with rooms or a hotel with a steakhouse? Either way it's very family friendly place to stay. We spent Christmas in the hotel and had dinner in the restaurant and were extremely pleased with the food and the service. The bedrooms were large with nice en suites. There is parking at the back of the hotel.... More

As above, this was very modern inside and facilities were good. Room was comfortable and clean. Prices were very good value. They have their own Car Park, which is essential in the main part of Oban. Location good for the town and ferries, also, central for Oban. They have an integral Steak house which serves lovely food, especially their steak... More

The rooms photographed well, but don't be deceived - it was low quality. The bathroom was ok Where do you start when everything was bad. The curb appeal was old and dirty. Entered from the rear parking lot into a bleak dark dirty delivery hallway into the kitchen and the hotel. The receptionist was rude! There is no elevator, no... More

Our room was only £80 and it included a good breakfast. It was not the best hotel on our trip, but it was pretty good. The room was big enough, but a little tight. Both the room and the bathroom were clean and the bed was comfortable. The television was tiny. My biggest complaint were the hard floors. When the... More
