My hubby and I stayed overnight in this very friendly and comfortable hotel. The rooms have ample space with comfy beds, clean white linen and fluffy towels. Food was excellent. Staff very helpful and polite. We would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and family. Oban itself is a very pretty place, will definitely be back in the summer.

Booked 3 nights at the Regent in January which included dinner on arrival and breakfast. We hadn't booked a sea view room, but the receptionist couldn't be more helpful and changed us to a lovely sea front room right away. Staff were all very welcoming and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Room was very comfortable, with a gorgeous... More

Just returned recently from a Xmas trip to this hotel. I must say that everything was ideal and with Tom, Ann and the staff going that extra mile in all that they were doing to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Can't praise the restaurant highly enough with the choice of food they put on and plenty more if... More

Booked 2 x nights over the Hogmanay period through a hotel booking website. The booking included dinner on 31st December - which we did not intend to take as previous hotel deals that we've been on that included one nights dinner proved to be nothing special - and there's so many good places to eat in Oban anyway - and...

The only positive aspect is its location, near shops and restaurants. But the hotel rooms desperately need a complete restoration, the toilet pipe was loose, the curtains were falling apart (there is a huge window in the bathroom, I struggled to close the curtains). Everything inside the room screams old, but the worst part was its lack of cleaning: I... More

6 of us stayed at the regent for 4 nights 23-27th December......on arrival I thought....oh no, it's an old folks home and the place looked ancient. Our room was ok and very very warm but like the rest of the place it's in dire need of upgrading. The food was excellent and the staff were great too......A BIG HELLO TO... More

We stayed at this hotel just before Christmas for a family visit. The hotel is quite dated, but retains lots of character from its 1930s (?) art deco design, has a perfect location and comes complete with small exhibition on Oban in WW2. Decent rooms, TVs and wifi; breakfast fine if a tad small, but all in all for three... More

Needed to book a family room at short notice which seemed either impossible in Oban (most family rooms we looked at only took 3) or very expensive. However this was a great deal. The room was spacious and had proper beds for everyone (one double and two separate singles), rather than camp beds or sofa beds like in other hotels.... More
