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.

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

The room was very spacious, well furnished, bright and immaculate, with a very modern bathroom. The king sized bed was VERY comfortable, with lovely linens. Breakfast... More

We were hoping to do the 3 island trip on the Saturday and... 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...

Josephine and Robert are setting up their business to a very high standard.in Oban and are clearly working hard to establish a first class reputation.
