  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

AVOID unless you want to be told on arrival (well the night before they had tried to ring once, whilst I was travelling there with no network) that you need to check out after 1 night (of a 4 night paid booking) as they are closing the hotel. Didn't care in the slightest I was left with nowhere to stay in Oban, no assistance or care, and not bothered at all when I told them I had paid upfront the full amount for 4 nights and out of pocket (they were also still advertising rooms for the dates they said were closed). Completely unreliable and unbothered, go anywhere else if you don't want to be scammed with terrible service and end up paying twice for accommodation. The only plus the night porter was lovely.

NYE Disappointing stay

Hotel advertising images on hotels.com are not a true representation of the hotels condition. Our room 219 was in serious need of some TLC. The bathroom was unfinished, no extractor fan (wires hanging out the wall). There was also no mirror in bathroom. The bedroom decor was extremely dated, chipped and needing a refresh. Very basic and missing all additional room dressings that images show. At breakfast we were greeted by a very rude member of staff that made us feel uncomfortable about even being there! This hotel is not worth the money and we are extremely disappointed in the service and condition of the regent hotel.

Wonderful location, easy access to the ferries. The room was quite cold overnight and the heater did not seem to work.
