Location wonderful right on the beach, staff very pleasant from what we seen of them, breakfast was ok but the room wasn't up to scratch for what you'd expect for an £80 room but overall had a nice stay

Just returned from a one night stay at the Oban Hotel. Well located and easy parking for the Hotel was immaculately clean, although dated. Room was very comfortable, as was the bed. But the only criticism I could give about the bed is. if you put an undercover on the mattress and on the pillows the life of the mattress... More

Another stay at the Oban Hotel, with a beautiful room, overlooking the sea and promenade. Vin, the Manager, runs a very efficient and friendly hotel. Food first class and excellent selection of choice, with first class service from all staff. This makes for a wonderful holiday, and a delight to stay at this establishment. A big thank you to Vin...

Just returned from a one night stay at the Oban Hotel. This is your typical English bed and breakfast hotel. It is clean and has a welcoming lounge area, the room was clean, comfortable bed, good sized bathroom and tea/coffee making. Breakfast was plentiful. The receptionist/waitress was excellent (long hair, pretty) very helpful on our arrival. Overall we would return... More

Without doubt the stand out factor about this hotel is the owner and staff (a special mention for Georgie), every effort is made to make you feel welcome and it really does make a difference. The location is great, being a stones throw away from the beach and Devonshire Park, a great bonus if you are visiting for the tennis... More

Why people pick a 2* hotel for there holiday and then expect all the delights of a 5* is beyond me which a few moaners on our coach did, however the service and friendliness I felt was 5*, all the dinners were good wholesome traditional meals and good full English for breakfast. I had a single room which although was... More

Great location for everything, beach just over the road, town a 10 min walk and theatres just round the corner. Lovely sun terrace to sit and have a few drinks and... More

Fantastic stay at this little hotel. Stayed with friends who were lucky enough to get a sea view room. That said we loved our room just as much, massive king size bed + loved the decor !! Spent most of the day at the beach then back to hotel to sit on the terrace with a bottle of wine before... More
