You and your husband are a lovely couple and we were delighted to accommodate you, especially after your long road trip. It's good to hear you enjoyed your "packed breakfast" , a must when you have an early start. You are right! This is a new venture as of March this year and we are very happy to have met... More

My first visit to Oban and stayed for one night on Saturday - beautiful guest house with lovely owners. Robert and Josephine were great. Lovely breakfast and great location. Would definitely return again, and would recommend to anyone visiting Oban.

Would without question recommend this B&B to anyone. My fiancé and I stayed 2 nights and were delighted how comfortable the room was and how delicious the breakfast was each morning. The owners were very welcoming too. The location is excellent- just 5 mins from the town centre. The B&B's free car parking to the rear of the property was... More

This Guesthouse is one of the best we've ever stayed in! The owners Robert and Josephine were very accommodating and couldn't do enough for us. My daughter has special dietary requirements which they were more than happy to try and meet. The rooms were modern, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was pre-ordered the night before (which is a good idea... More

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.
