1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
On arrival the manager was very jovial and standoffish . He gave us our key and off we went to our room when we got to our room there was only one bed we had asked for a double and a single as our son was with us . I went to change our room and the manager was coming up on the lift with another key which was fine , he took us to the room which he had to knock incase someone was in which was alarming in its self . There was no sea view but promised to change us over in the morning , on the morning my partner went to the front desk and the young girl who was pleasant said that it would not be a problem come back in and hour and the too Will be changed , we went for breakfast and came back she said it would be an hour so we went about our business and on arrival back at the hotel the manager took us to one side and said it wasn’t possible to change rooms or a refund . Which would have been fine if we hadn’t paid for the sea view on the first place , he offered an extra night which wasn’t feasible as we were both working the next day , totally ruined the feel good factor of why we were there to enjoy ourselves. I would give this hotel a body swerve and pay a bit more extra for somewhere else . Trust me I’m doing you a favour.

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.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
NYE Disappointing stay
Hotel advertising images on 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.
