“three night break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Have just returned from 3 night break, staff were very friendly and helpful, good location right on seafront, try and get a sea view room the view is great. Bedroom was spotless as were all the public rooms. Food was very good and was served very quickly by restaurant staff. Will come back again. Lots of deals available on this hotel, so good value. Nice wee extra touch was Easter egg on breakfast table.

Room Tip: Room 412 sea view

We stayed at the Regent on a coach tour and stayed in room 215 at the hotel rear. The room was very clean and tidy and we had a small problem with the shower which (We reported to reception) and it was rectified by a replacement the following day. The Hotel staff were very nice and polite and helpful, the food in the restaurant was first class and served piping hot. On the bus leaving the hotel the staff were on the balcony waving goodbye. A really touching point to many people. Would certainly stay there again and will recommend to my friends etc.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room in the front of the Hotel for the view over the bay.

We stayed in the Regent Hotel for 3 nights and I must that the staff looked after us very well. The food was lovely and plenty of it. It is idealy situated for the ferry to the Isle of Mull. The hotel is a little tired but the bedroom was lovely and clean. We stayed in room 212 which had a lovely view out towards the Isle of Mull and other smaller Islands. The only problem we had was getting our cases up to our room because the lift was busy. This is where the helpfull staff came in and they took them up for us. Oban is a lovely little town.
Thanks to all the staff for making our short break lovely.

Room Tip: Ask for a view out to sea

The location of the hotel was fantastic. We had booked a double but got a twin room which had placed us at the back of the hotel but after a brief chat with reception they couldn't get us a double but moved us to the front of the hotel. When we got to our room the door wouldn't open fully as it hit the bed but once in we had the most amazing view and we just forgot about everything else. We had no hot water the next day but someone came straight away to sort it. The hotel staff did their best to help and we appreciated their efforts.The hotel itself needs a bit of tlc but such a beautiful building. I could see Poirot being filmed here. I would recommend it and may come back again as the location is perfect for eating out and again the view is breath taking.

Our first time in Oban and wont be our last. we can honestly recommend the Regent, the hotel may not be 5 star but the staff certainly are.
the food was excellent as was the service and the views over the bat where stunning.
I would recommend a visit to the Oban distillery

Room Tip: ask for a room at the front just for the view

Easy to find hotel and although the hotel itself has no parking, there is plenty of parking nearby. Most of the parking spaces are free until 9am, which is fine if you need to catch an early ferry. The proximity of the ferry port was the reason we chose this hotel. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The room décor was fine. The view of the next door building site was not pretty, but we only stayed there overnight so it was not a problem.The hotel itself looks like it could do with a bit of a spruce up in the stairwells and corridors. But for the price we paid, it was more than adequate. Good location.

HI, just a short note to let you know our short stay at the Regent Hotel. WE went for a two night stay and to be honest only picked the Regent when we could not get other hotels in the area that we had stayed at before for the dates we required. Firstly the price we paid was very good for B/B with a 3 course dinner each evening, but we were apprehensive about staying at a two star hotel. I would just like to say, as others have, that it is in need of some deco/ repair in places but the staff were very nice, food good, and the hotel was very clean. Our room (310) had wallpaper coming off the walls and damp patches on the ceiling caused by rain penetration and some of the plaster cornice had come away also, but other than that the room was very warm, clean and comfortable. This is the third time we have stayed in Oban at three different hotels, and to be honest ,I think I would choose the Regent again the next time as the price, and service was very good. It just needs a little bit of love and tenderness.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room.
