Turned up rather bedraggled after a week of camping and got a spotless, spacious twin room with all the required facilities that really hit the mark. Bathroom was a little cramped but I'm nit picking here. Nice breakfast...lovely coffee. Private car parking round the back was great and it really is just an easy short stroll into town. Friendly hosts... More

Josephine and Robert were great hosts during our two night stay. They were very helpful with restaurant ideas (Ee-usk is fine!) and provided ample breakfasts. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location allowed for an easy walk to the waterfront and the ferry to Mull/Iona.

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

We recently spent 3 nights at this lovely B&B. Josephine greeted us warmly upon our arrival and showed us to our room (Rm. 1). She gave us info on breakfast, wifi connection and parking. 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

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
