The Regent Hotel (a former sea captains house) was converted to a hotel in 1926 by the well-known local Architect Frank Nicholls. Since its conversion, it has been running continuously as a hotel ever since. During the war, the hotel was first of all the coordinating centre for the coastal gunnery around the Western Approaches. Later to be taken over by the American General Omar Bradley for his G.H.Q and over the door, the sign read ‘134th U.S. Infantry’. A large curved sign board over the main entrance door proclaimed "All Hell Can’t Stop Us". After the war, the hotel continued as a small family run hotel and ever since that time visitors have been enthralled by the views from most of the rooms in the building.
To quote from the September 1998 edition of House Beautiful magazine, "The Regent, a historic former sea captains house with elegantly decorated rooms and stunning sea views from practically every window."
The Regent has a very comfortable resident's lounge and a dining room. As well as our breakfast buffet that is served each morning, we also have a wide selection of cooked items which include: English, vegetarian, continental & fish. Our fish & bacon are local products and have been delicately oak smoked. We also offer you the choice of real espresso, cappuccino, latte or cafetiere coffee, plus a selection of teas or hot chocolate.
