We stayed three nights in July 2014 at this nice B&B with better than average Scottish breakfast. The room is large enough, it's quiet, and the owners have invested in modem for each floor so the WiFi actually works in your room. Helpful owner for ideas for what were some rainy days in Oban.

This B&B was by far one of the best we have stayed in, just because it had the whole package. Friendly, clean rooms, brilliant bed (we had a great sleep), breakfast fit for a king and did I say how friendly Joe and Robert were. I had my family from Canada their and Joe and Robert made them so welcome.... More

Sandvilla is located on a street of B&B's just up from town center. We walked everywhere from here. Our room was tidy and clean, though a bit small. It was quiet. There are no public spaces in this B&B other than at breakfast the breakfast room is open. I don't know what it was about the breakfast room, but the... More

Sandvilla is a pleasant B&B run by a very accommodating couple who are new in the business. Josephine and Robert did all they could for us, even parking our car in the designated place behind Sandvilla. They kept our room very clean and fresh, and the bathroom, although small, has everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and in a friendly... More

Josephine and Robert took over this bed and breakfast just a few weeks ago. Although it's their first foray into running a B&B, they're doing a wonderful job. The rooms are clean and bright. Josephine couldn't be more attentive and Robert's breakfasts are outstanding.

We stayed here for two nights in June and were very happy with the accommodations. We were close to the center of town, the room was small but comfortable, and clean (with a very nice shower), and breakfasts were delicious. The owners were there whenever we needed them, and were friendly and helpful. The only minor problem was an undependable... More

We enjoyed a comfortable two nights at the Sandvilla Guest House. Josephine and Robert were friendly and helpful. This establishment is close to (under 10 minutes walk) the harbour an many fine restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable. The off-street parking could even take the monster car we rented.

Sandvilla is well-located and we walked to the pier and city centre without the hassle of having to find a place to park. There's free parking at back of guest house. Room was clean & well-furnished & host was great. Enjoyed our stay here.

I cannot rate this guest house highly enough and for the price it is such good value for money. The rooms were immaculate and very comfor,table, breakfast was fabulous too. The owners go that extra mile for you and were very kind and generious. We would definately visit again.

We came here off a late ferry from Colonsay, to a warm welcome and comfortable room with all facilities we wanted. Having spent the previous week in a fairly primitive cottage feeling cold, Sand Villa seemed extra luxurious, warm, a spacious room, well furnished, lovely shower, TV, hospitality tray. Hosts were attentive and friendly. Breakfast very good.
