Oban itself appears a nice small town with a pretty harbour, and this accommodation is not far from said harbour (where there is also a great brewery pub on the harbourside), unfortunately thats about as much positive as can say about the Balmoral Inn. Now I know its a 'backpackers' inn, and the price is cheap (£30 per room), but the website looks chintzy but doable - I state now, dont bother. Bedlinen had cigarette holes in it, light didnt work in the bathroom so meant slide door had to be open in order for you to use the toilet & shower - not particularly private, even if the light worked the door was somewhat unstable and lets be honest do you really want to shower in water that smells of egg? Ammonia at its finest, only no one around to inform. Tatty and felt grubby, the nights sleep not being quality as a result. I found two other similar priced venues which would advocate people look for first before committing to a night in a not so royal standard inn.
