Great hotel, and great location. Close to car park and walk along seafront. Bed was comfortable and we had a nice view. Good value (not 5* but you get what you pay for). Clean and perfect for our family.

We booked this as a treat to ourselves since both our birthdays are in January. We were not disappointed. Our room had a fabulous view of Oban bay and it was clean and tidy. The evening meal was good and the breakfast excellent. All the staff were very friendly which is always an additional bonus too. We secured a special...

I stayed here in september 2015 as part of large group. We had a very large room for myself and a roommate. Our room was switched by accident with other people in our group, turns out it was for the better. We had a view of the harbour! The hotel was a close walk to everything in this small town....

We booked in for one night and were initially disappointed that there was no guest drop off point. All the space outside the hotel was taken up by presumably staff as the vehicles were there all day. Had to lug our bags across from the car park in the rain. Our room was average but extremely noisy. The fire alarm...

We were gifted a voucher deal to stay overnight in the hotel as a birthday gift. We stayed on the night before my birthday which I thought was a nice touch. Checking in was easy, and the receptionist told me where to park my car free overnight during our stay, which was only a short 5 minute walk along the...

My mum and I stayed here on a festive coach trip. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful. Our twin room was on the third floor, very clean and pleasant with a bit of a sea view. The meals were very nice and tasty, and the restaurant staff very helpful. The only fault I could find with the hotel...

Had a chance to relax at the Regent after a hectic holiday period. Had a beautiful meal with my husband. Staff always courteous and attentive with the added bonus of such a great view from the dining room over the bay. Recomended.

At the invitation of some friends who were staying across the road at The Columba, we would normally have had lunch with them there, but due to their lunchtime food service being cancelled today (Boxing Day 26th December 2016), we were alternatively booked in at "The Regent" for lunch by the hotel's front desk.
