This Guesthouse was booked for us by a friend who lives in Oban and it was a very good choice. Modern, very clean, ensuite facilities and a good breakfast for a very reasonable price. Wouldn't hesitate recommending it.

Sandvilla is a beautiful Guest House in Oban. Well positioned on a quiet street, but only a short walk to all amenities and the sea front. Hosts Robert and Josephine are lovely, very friendly and welcoming. The service they provide cannot be faulted. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Bedroom was lovely, big comfy bed, beautifully decorated and lots... More

A solid choice of accommodations in Oban. Efficiently run with little excessive "warmth" both literally and figuratively. The rooms are of good, probably above average size, and clean without fault. The basic amenities are provided but don't expect heat at night. Comfortable bed and good storage space. Breakfast is ordered on the night before service and was nicely done...fresh, attractively...

Myself, my husband and 5 other family members recently stayed at Sandvilla for 2 nights and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were attending a christening in Oban and the location of the b&b was a 2 minute walk from the church and local amenities.
