Clean, large room, great location, delicious home made breakfast and parking. Josephine and Robert are very nice. Would stay here again for sure. Book early is you want to do the Scotch tour at a specific time.

The rooms are very clean, cute, comfortable and quiet.. We stayed for two nights with a day trip to Mull and Iona. Josie was helpful with directions and ferry advice. We... More

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!

Stayed here 2 nights in late June 2016. The hosts are very nice and very accommodating. The room was very pleasant and quiet. The breakfast was delicious, ample and made to order. Easy 5 minute walk to main area of town and about 15 minutes to train station. Would stay here again.

The room was one of the best we stayed in during our trip. Very nice ensuite bath. Very conveniently located within walking distance of the downtown area and ferry. Josephine made us a sack lunch in lieu of breakfast. Parking was a bit of a challenge because our car was parked behind another. However, because we could walk downtown and... More

Sandvilla is centrally located 5 minutes walk from the town centre and sea front. Warm welcome from Josephine and Robert (who cooks up a great breakfast). Room is fresh airy and clean. Off street parking is very handy. We thoroughly recommend.
