We've just returned from a week in Eastbourne, staying at The Oban Hotel with Gardiners coaches. What a lovely, friendly hotel this is. Many thanks to Vin, Georgie and their extremely hard-working staff for making our stay so enjoyable. The room we had was clean and comfortable, the bar lounge was pleasant, there was a good menu choice for both... More

Me and my mum had a week at the Oban Hotel during May half-term. We were welcomed by the owner/manager and his staff. We had a lovely welcome we arrived before check in time and the staff were happy for us to leave our luggage in reception. Which was welcoming. The rooms had lovely views of tge seafront.

We were looking for a last minute room in Eastbourne and the Oban had one left with a double bed room. The receptionist was extremely polite, friendly and helpful showing us the room before we paid. I couldn't believe breakfast was included in the price and it was a lovely one as well! Really enjoyed staying there and recommend to... More

We have booked 2 nights for the BH weekend at the last minute so the only hotel Oban had one last room left. We were hoping for the best. And indeed very pleasant stay we have had. Super friendly staff, delicious freshly cooked breakfast and of course fantastic location. Well spent money, fully recommended hotel.

Excellent location on sea front. Steps up to entrance. Not aware of a disabled entrance. Reasonably priced. Decor needs updating, but clean. Room a good size with adequate storage. Beds comfortable. Small tv. No information that we could find in the room eg how to operate tv, or meal times. staff very friendly and helpful. breakfast adequate .

This was a late planned booking so we weren't expecting much booking in the week before Easter weekend. Our request for a room with a bath was seemingly missed before our visit but the excellent receptionist dealt with this swiftly upon our arrival. Bearing in mind that the standard rate here is about £70-75 per night I wasn't expecting too... More

I had no hesitation visiting this Hotel with a group of 20+ as I had every confidence in the organisers. I was not disappointed. I had a single room which was small (I am quite big) and it had every commodity that one could ask for, I was very impressed. The service and food quality can only be described as... More
