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 and all his staff, for another enjoyable stay.
Hope to be able to visit again next year.
Oban Hotel, your the best.

Well located and easy parking (dont forget to ask reception for the £1 voucher before you park up - valid 24 hours). Hotel was immaculately clean, although dated. Room was very comfortable, as was the bed. Tea and coffee available and a tv. Breakfast was very nice, full English. The staff were so helpful. Pleasure staying there. Also do go to The Bandstand to see their concerts, saw the Beached Boys, there were brilliant, dancing in the rain will never be the same!

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 again. Good value all round.

Great 70 inch TV For World Cup games. Most impressive !
Nice family run hotel with a great feel and atmosphere. The wife let me watch the game whilst she was entertained by the barman. Room was clean comfortable and functional. We enjoyed a couple of drinks on our balcony before bed and woke up to a delicious breakfast delivered by a charming young girl who seemed to be doing everything on her own without struggle I might add. Hot food delivered on hot plates .....lovely. Can't say much more other than we were pleased with our choice. Thanks Oban and we may see you again

Room Tip: Room 13. Great sea views with balcony

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 as we were.
If you are planning a visit to Eastbourne then I would highly recommend this hotel where the guests are put first. We will definately be booking again next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front with a sea view ...

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 slightly smaller than others I have stayed in still had all the bits I needed plus the bonus of beautiful sea views.
There was always a member of staff around to help people or just to come and have a chat in the lounge which is very nice when your on your own.
Thank you.

Arrived on a beautiful sunny Friday afternoon and asked if we could upgrade to a sea view which was only £10 extra a night.
Quick and friendly check in.
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 watch the world go by.
