This delightful B&B is a stone's throw from Oban's harbor, and an easy walk to the train station and ferry terminal. Josephine is a very accommodating host. The rooms are spotless and well appointed, and the breakfasts are well prepared and filling. This is a great jumping off point for exploring the western islands and western Highlands and a great...

Turned up rather bedraggled after a week of camping and got a spotless, spacious twin room with all the required facilities that really hit the mark. Bathroom was a little cramped but I'm nit picking here. Nice breakfast...lovely coffee. Private car parking round the back was great and it really is just an easy short stroll into town. Friendly hosts... More

Josephine and Robert were great hosts during our two night stay. They were very helpful with restaurant ideas (Ee-usk is fine!) and provided ample breakfasts. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location allowed for an easy walk to the waterfront and the ferry to Mull/Iona.

Sandvilla is a great choice in Oban. Location is just moments from the heart of town, and our room was comfortable and immaculate. The bathroom and shower were a bit tight, but not problematic. The room itself included a nice sitting area with two small chairs. The bed was comfortable and overall we felt right at home. Making arrangements was... More

Sandvilla Guest House was everything I hoped for and more. The room was spotless, well appointed and comfortable. The owner was helpful and friendly. The B&B is well located (only a short walk to the main area of town). Finally, the breakfast was spectacular! French press coffee and more food than you need! We would definitely stay here again.

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.
