Myself and my 74 year old mother have just returned from a lovely stay at the Regent hotel. We were very impressed with all of the staff who couldn't do enough for us. We went with the Groupon offer at £99 for two nights B & B and dinner with bubbly on first night. I requested and was given room with sea view. Room was very nice, as was breakfast and dinner.

Highly recommended for 2 star hotel at this price.

Excellent location also.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view.

Just home from a lovely time at the regent hotel. Went through groupon, fantastic value. Had read very bad reports through trip advisor. All that I can say is that the staff were marvellous, food was first class. We had a room on the 4th floor facing the sea, a view to die for.The only bad report that I have is that being on the 4th floor there are lights outside the window facing onto the hotel keeping you awake at night.So bad that you didn't need to switch a light on to see the time at 3.00am. I reported this to the reception and was told that the manager would alter the timer which was to no avail, I had to buy eye shades for a nights sleep. I would say, however, that my husband can sleep through anything.So if you are a good sleeper the 4th floor is where you want to be

Room Tip: A room with a view

We stayed here in April 2014 and had a wonderful stay. Oban was a nice town, Oban distillery was a nice experience, we saw all kinds of weather, and the hotel was nice, for a good price, clean linen, OK standard, although not luxurious. Good english breakfast must be mentioned!

I stayed here as a single person as part of a Caledonian 3 day trip to Mull and Iona. I requested - and got - a single room with views of the harbour. I had to pay a small premium but it was worth every penny. Room was an excellent size for a single, shower room seemed very new and nice flat screen tv.

Breakfast served everything you could think of and there was a good choice for dinner. Braised beef on the Friday was superb.Staff were excellent. i would certianly return.

Just returned from a 3 night break to Oban , and booked on a internet deal price of £129 for 2 people and a spoilt dog for 3 nights , B&B , inc evening meal on first night .
Hotel has prime location , was welcomed and checked in by a smiling and happy face ,could not fault the evening meal , and restaurant service was very pleasant ,
Breakfast was fine and more than edequate ,
Bar prices are reasonable , you can certainly pay more in the town for a drink ..
Had a couple of minor issues with our room (nothing life threatening) that I raised with management , and was rectified immediately by Tommy , the general manager .
Overall , we enjoyed Oban and everything it has to offer , and as we didn't manage all our objectives with the trip , we are already planning a return, and without hesitating , will happily re-book with the Regent Hotel ,
And the whisky cellar bar they are about to open for the season will be a place I look forward to frequenting during my stay ..

Room Tip: Room 310 , spacious and comfortable with a seaview overlooking the Barbour/bay

Five of us, including one child, visited the Regent Hotel in April, just for an overnight stay. We couldn't have been made more welcome. Our rooms were on the first floor, disappointed not to have a sea view, but then we hadn't thought to ask for one!
The rooms were very nice, plenty of supplies on the hospitality tray, excellent, clean en-suite. The food was lovely, served by a friendly, efficient waitress who couldn't do enough for us. It was a pleasure to stay there, and we shall certainly be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view if you would like one - worth it, Oban has a very busy harbour.
