This is the second time this year we (hubby and myself) have stayed at Sandvilla and it was faultless again. We had the ground floor room (room 1) which was very spacious, really comfortable and immaculate. Robert and Josephine are exceptional hosts, nothing is too much trouble. 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...

Room was good being comfortable and well furnished.A very short walk takes you to the centre of lovely Oban. Your breakfast choice was ordered the night before which is very handy for all. Lovely Stornoway... More

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. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by Josephine and shown to our very clean, comfortable... More

Pros: Great location, only 5 minute walk to the city center. Breakfast was delicious though you did need to preselect the night before (and every night of your stay; this wasn't clear). Private parking in back, but get there early as it was already filled the first night we arrived Rooms were very clean and there was housekeeping every day... More
