The rooms are lovely, exceptionally clean and spacious. The breakfast is absolutely lovely, fantastic coffee, all in all very relaxed and accommodating hosts, leave you to relax and enjoy their home and town. Literally minutes walk from the harbour, shops and bars but very quiet and peaceful at night. Great location. Would recommend to anyone!!

My son and I enjoyed a great overnight stay in Sandvilla. The owners are really friendly, the rooms are very comfortable and we had an excellent breakfast. It is a few minutes from the centre of town so it is an excellent location. Can't recommend it highly enough.

We stayed two nights at the Sandvilla, and loved it! The location is great - easy walk to most everywhere in Oban. Josephine is a lovely hostess, breakfast was hot and plentiful, and we would definitely stay again. A great introduction to Scotland!
