We stayed in the Regent for two nights with friends. When reading the reviews prior to our visit I was a bit worried. Coming up the steps at the front there was a terrible smell of cigarettes which was a bit off putting. The decor in the hotel is a bit dated but the staff were very friendly. Our room...

If you're looking to step back in time, come here! It was like stepping back into the 1950s upon entering reception. No card system but keys for the rooms - annoying when you have a room mate who comes home at 2am!!!! Wifi is only really available in the reception area, but requires logging in with a long password if...

My friend and I had stayed here for one night in early December, what a mistake I made booking this hotel. When we arrived they could not find our booking ( I had telephoned a week earlier to confirm the booking, which they did) after faffing about for 20 minutes they said we were lucky as they had one room...

Its not the first time at this hotel. So know what to expect. Clean rooms welcome staff and a fantastic breakfast where the staff go the extra bit in service. The location is perfect in Oban. Will come back again.
