Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in mid november. Building is old and could do with a refurb but was still a nice place to stay. The lift was a bit temperamental but I found if you keep your finger on your floor number it will move. We were allocated a double room at the back of the old part of the hotel. Not much in the way of a view as it looked out onto the alleyway and street.
However, the room was clean and well stocked with tea, coffee and biscuits. As it was a mid week booking I asked if we could be moved to the front which overlooks the sea and harbour. The hotel staff were more than happy to do this and, although no double was available at the front, they asked if we would like a twin room instead which we accepted. The view from a front facing room is spectacular and was well worth the move.
The food at both dinner and breakfast could not be faulted and was served to our table by very well mannered and courteous staff. There is a great choice of menu at dinner and a wide and varied selection on offer at breakfast.
Oban is a very good place to visit sith plenty to see and do.
I would reccommend this hotel to anyone wanting a short break or a holiday.
I would return to Oban again and would definately stay at the Regent again.
