We stayed at this hotel the day before a due ferry the following morning. I failed to mention upon booking that we would be leaving 6:30 am to get to Newhaven so was disappointed to learn there wouldn't be any breakfast available as chef wasn't coming in till about 7am. There didn't seem to be any attempt to make sure...

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...

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...
