Our room was on the third floor (lift available) and was clean comfortable and well equipped with stunning sea views. The evening meals were exceptionally good; three courses with four choices for...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We arrived by train and walked to the hotel which is on the waterfront. We were there for the air show and thought it was a great location. The hotel is a step back in time. The rooms were small but it was interesting. The full English breakfast was very good.

Just came back from a break with the kids. We had family room 12 which was lovely and spacious (plenty of room for my 4 year old to get all his toys out). We felt very comfortable at the Oban and the staff really seemed to do everything they could to make our stay enjoyable, even putting Ice Age on... More

If you are looking for a Five-Star clinically run conventional establishment in Eastbourne - don't book into the Oban Hotel. But if instead, Like me Wife and I, you prefer a small, family run, characterful Hotel on the Seafront - the Oban has it all. The warm welcome as you arrive, the clean, comfortable and airy bedrooms, the great cooking... More

We decided to visit Eastbourne for the weekend and it was a particularly busy weekend with most of the hotels being fully booked however we found a double ocean view room at the Oban. The room itself was ok however was certainly not worth the £115 we spent as the room was tiny and the bathroom was so small it... More

Great location with friendly staff and management who seem keen to ensure their guests have a good holiday, however the shower and toilet space is limited. Bedroom was clean with comfy beds and 2 easy chairs to relax in. Food was good and plentiful, quickly served and quickly cleared up afterwards. Evening entertainment was enjoyable

We stayed for four nights at the beginning of August 2014. We were impressed by the general cleanliness of the hotel and the helpful friendly staff who were very efficient. Our room was very clean and comfortable, the bed was very large and extremely comfortable, and the breakfast was first class. Although we chose a "land view" room we still... More
