    Budget central location thats a bit dated

    The Balmoral offered a good location in Oban centre with an ajoining bar downstairs. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were fresh and clean. The shower also worked well. However, it must be stated that the rooms are fairly dated and it could do with a large overhaul to bring them into the current day. Certain areas need a bit of TLC and fittings and lights need checked as there were a few that didnt work. Overall, this is a good place for someone or a group on a budget who want a great location, friendly staff/bar and something a bit more private than a hostel room.

    Good value, central hotel

    This hotel offers very good value and is well located in Oban. The owners are very nice and helpful. There is a friendly and quiet bar there. It is not a fancy place but it is clean with good amenities for the price. I have now used it twice and certainly intend to do so again. Very handy for train station and ferries.

    The place needs shutting down. It’s disgusting and unsafe. It is actually called Balmoral Inn. Too many bad things to say, needs inspecting and closing.

    My husband and I were not happy about balmoral we had to go in the bar to get the key for are room , there was horrible smell and carpet was ripped. In the room was a small electric fire which was not very big to heat up room paint and wood falling off the window. Sockets in the room were not workin as to make a cup of t had to unplugged the tv to get kettle to work. Shower was too small I couldn’t get in it. After all the room was an absolute joke
