Staff were friendly, and... More

Booked this with holiday vouchers at what was an Over-The-Top price. Paid £120 for 2 nights B&B but was quoted £35 when I inquired about an extra night. Surely for that price a sea view was in order. First the bad, bedrooms need attention, mildew, dirty carpet, damaged and dirty window frames, television faulty and awful view of passageway and... More

The location and price of this hotel were brilliant. Right on the waterfront with lovely views. My room, unfortunately looked over a building site but this didn't really bother me too much. I could however, hear people constantly talking in the hallway during the night which did disturb me, as well as banging doors. Breakfast.... I'm still a bit confused... More

The hotel is in a fantastic location near the shops and only a short walk from the railway station. We had two rooms, both with sea views and they were warm, clean and comfortable, The breakfast was excellent, as was the service. We enjoyed our stay at the Regent and will definitely book again when we return to Oban.

The room was clean, warm and the bed was very comfortable. Room 104 - the view was out towards a building site, but it was good to see that the area is being done up. Would certainly come back to this hotel.
