We dropped in on The Regent later in the afternoon, looking for a last minute place to stay. Sandi was very friendly and patient (I had to keep ducking out to the car to converse with my husband) on reception and was able to accommodate our family. The rooms were not the biggest

Thank you for your response. we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with u, the Seagulls are part of the coastal scene and beyond our control. Ear plugs can be required occasionally but only in the mating season. It appears they can't do it quietly!

Thank you for response I am sorry you had one of our small rooms but as you say even our large rooms are not of American proportions.

How accessible is this hotel for a guest in a wheelchair? Does it have accessible showers?
Thank you for your enquiry, the Regent is as Gordon states is an old building built on a jagged outcrop of Blue Elvan rock. We have many levels and no lift. You could try the Garrack Hotel they have rooms that are accessible as does the Chy-an-Albany.
