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 was like a closet, and the sink was in the bedroom. Because the toilet was so small with no ventilation it had an awful damp smell which also came into bedroom.
The room itself was fairly standard in terms of cleanliness. Wifi did not work in our room.
Breakfast was a disappointment and was of very poor standard. Another thing that caused us a great inconvenience was when we asked to put our bags behind the desk when we checked out a very unhelpful lady said sorry they couldn't hold our bags as the hotel was closing early for refurbishment. This really should have been communicated to us the night before as we had two huge bags to carry around when we had plans to stay in Eastbourne ( we travelled up by train) for the day which would've been impossible with us carrying the bags around. The woman was very unhelpful and basically had a "it's your problem" attitude. Luckily the friendly staff at the Cavendish hotel was kind enough to take in our bags even though we hadn't stayed there- so huge thanks to the Cavendish hotel. Oban was Definitely not worth the £115 and unhelpful/ unfriendly staff - would not stay there again. The only plus was that the location was good and only a five minute walk from the pier.

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 had good view of the South Downs from our bedroom window. We will certainly come back again. Would recommend the Oban to anybody.
A very BIG thank-you to the manager and ALL the staff at the Oban.

My cousin and I stayed at the Oban Hotel for the second year running having so enjoyed the experience last year. The Hotel Manager Vin was really pleased to see us again which made us feel very special! We were so lucky as we had Room 11 which overlooks the Wish Tower and it has a balcony where we could sit outside and watch the world go by! Georgie, his second in command, was a real sweetie and could not do enough for us, and the food was good too!! I would thoroughly recommend the Oban to anyone who wishes to stay in a very friendly and personal hotel.

Room Tip: Stayed at the front of the Hotel as we loved to look out onto the sea. The shower room/toilet area is quite small but did not affect out stay.
