This hotel is good for a short break, the location is very good, it's best feature, beds were comfortable, breakfast good, but it could do with a little bit of freshening up, the staff were very nice, we would stay again.

Excellent service from Vin and the team at the Oban Hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was decent, clean and quiet. Some of the reviews on here said it was a poor breakfast and I have to disagree - scrambled eggs, bacon and beans was very good, good bacon + cereals, juice, toast etc, decent portions, overall very...

Stayed in August for a few nights, rooms are very clean and comfortable beds. Breakfast very good and close to the theatres and seafront facilities. Staff are welcoming and helpful to make your stay good.

It is with regret I must inform others the problems encountered at the Oban hotel Eastbourne. It all sounded and looked good on paper, but my wife and I were dissatisfied with our stay. At a cost of £300.00 for two days for our visit to see the Eastbourne air show, we expected some comfort and courtesy, our list is... More

We booked a bit late for the famous Eastbourne airshow but The Oban had rooms and as a big user of TA it looked OK (general rule we book in the top half and ideally top 1/3 and this met the criteria. ) I understand that all the hotels do charge a premium for the event but the normal price... More

We booked this hotel at the very last minute (same day) as we were in the area and were let down badly with accommodation we had arranged elsewhere. As a party of 4 adults we had the last 2 rooms. The location of the hotel is on the seafront in an excellent position. The Oban has a traditional seaside hotel... More

This small hotel is clean but looks a little poor in the public rooms. Prices , there are so many prices on offer on line from the various agencies . Looking at other hotels in the area this is one of the poorest. The manager is unfriendly , on arrival the first thing he asked was for the balance of... More

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.
