We thought we had a bargain here for £62 for two B and B, but met a couple who had 2 nights, dinner, B and B for £79 each ! So ask about offers. Hotel is a bit tired and in need of an upgrade, but has views to die for. Our room was at the back of course so... More

Excellent Service. Spotless. First class staff. Not very modern but the food more than makes up for that. Couldn't fault anything. We were there for a wedding which took place in the hotel. The bride, groom and guests all had a great time

Was a good hotel in its day but really needs some money spent on it. On the plus side however - good location -... More

We stayed at this hotel after 4 days of camping and it surely felt good. It's a bit old and the bathrooms are small, but it has everything to make you feel comfortable for a night. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is quite good. Also the location is very good (next to the sea, center, next to tourist... More

Our fourth visit to the Regent was this month. The reason we keep coming back? It's cheap. The bedrooms are a bit hit and miss. This time both couples had super big rooms with a cracking view over Oban Bay. When the weather is good the view is stunning. On previous visits however we have had pokey back rooms with... More

The staff in the dinning room were fantastic and could not do enough to try and help all the guests . Excellent location and would... More

Spent two nights in this hotel, the room was small but with a harbour view it more than made up for the size, the room was clean and so was the bathroom. Our 3 course meal was served by very helpful staff, the food was very good, breakfast also I could not complain the staff cannot do enough. Car parking... More

The hotel is situated right on the water, in the heart of the adorable city of Oban. The rooms were pretty basic, and the lift is super tiny (we ended up carrying up our bags from the lobby because the wait was so long). The hotel offers a really nice seating area outside, overlooking the water. It was the best... More
