This B&B is an easy walk from the center of Oban, where the bus from Edinburgh deposited us. Josephine and Robert were friendly, pleasant and helpful. They know their city and its amenities well, and are very generous with directions, and suggestions about places to go to eat. While I see from other reviews that some visitors experienced spotty wi-fi... More

A group of friends stayed on the top floor 3 bedrooms. We enjoyed our stay and a very nice breakfast. Would recommend these room for families or close friends as two of the rooms need to share a bathroom in the hallway. Would recommend to others.

Sandvilla Guest House, run by the couple Josephine and Robert, is a lovely place to stay in Oban. Its location is nearly perfect: just 5 minutes walk to the train station and ferry terminal, near great pubs (Coasters) and excellent food (Oban Fish & Chips). Josephine and Robert couldn't have been more welcoming and hospitable. Here's an anecdote: As my... More

You and your husband are a lovely couple and we were delighted to accommodate you, especially after your long road trip.

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.
