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

If I was asked to sum this hotel up in one word it would have to be 'disgusting'!!!! I have never seen such a run down shambles of a building actually being put forward to paying customers as hotel accommodation. The bedroom we were allocated had windows that didn't open, a bed that must have been there before the war... More

The reception was fine but oh dear the lift - it was minute claiming it could carry 6 people but we found 4 average size people were squashed. With luggage only 2 people max... More

We stayed here because it was one of only a few that accepted dogs in the area (for one night only before we caught the ferry to Tiree). The room was perfectly adequate; clean, presentable, what you pay for. The night's sleep was not very good, the room was far too hot and whenever we opened the window all we... More
