On arrival there was no reception area and nobody around, there was more spiders webs than ive ever seen in my life. There was a ladies bathroom upstairs that had certainly seen better days (ie in the 60's perhaps). We were so disgusted we left before checking in and found a guest house. Having spoken to the guest house owners they had heard there was things biting. Yuck......never again.

....not as bad as the reviews suggest! It was friendly and clean. No problems staying here with my partner. We really enjoyed the Balmoral as its small and welcoming. Best pub for watching the world cupgames too. For the price we got exactly what we expected. Loved Oban!

Just wish we got to pet Parsley

Stayed here last night and it will be the very last time I will stay here.room is in big need of a refurb curtains hanging off,stained carpet,room clearly never gets dusted could write my name on everything wallpaper hanging off the walls.
As for the bed the mattress must be years old worest sleep i have ever had in a hotel and to top it off I woke up covered in bites all over me.i understand people say it's a budget hotel but for £60 a night it's DEFO NOT WORTH IT.i got a room with no bathroom had to use shared bathroom witch was disgusting there's noway I was stepping in that shower.the light in bathroom didn't work place is just a run down mess.

This hotel clearly calls itself budget accommodation. It is basic and somewhat down-at-heel but friendly and comfortable. My room had a spacious pine wardrobe for luggage and clothes, ensuite toilet and shower, and in-room tea and coffee service, Yes, the carpeting on the stairs was mended with tape. Would you prefer it not to be mended at all? Judging from some of the comments here, I have to wonder what kind of accommodations people were expecting for £30/night in a seaside resort town. Oban is expensive; if you want to pay less, expect to make some concessions.

Room Tip: Guest room begin two floors above the entrance level.

I have not actually stayed in the hotel but I've seen all the rooms , this is a budget hotel so don't expect luxury , the rooms are clean and a good place to get your head down .
I've been using the pub for just over 18 months and again its just a wee basic bar but as they say here the craic is good and the locals that drink there are friendly and always willing to help visitors feel welcome and give directions to local attractions etc .
Sometimes there is entertainment on , normally traditional Scottish music and the have recently started a quiz night , check out their facebook page for dates .

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with friends
