Sandvilla Guest House
Ranked #16 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Our room was spotless with the most comfy bed I've experienced in any hotel or guest house. We were made to feel so welcome by the proprietor and the location is ideally situated just a couple of minutes walk from the town centre. I would strongly recommend a stay here to anyone visiting the delightful town of Oban. We will definitely return for another visit.

We stayed one night at Sandvilla this week - we meant to stay two, but had to leave early. Joyce was warm and welcoming and was very helpful when we needed to change our plans. The room was bright and spacious and comfortable. An easy 2 minute walk to the water and the centre of town. Breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend!

We have booked this bed & breakfast for our honeymoon. We were looking for a nice homey and comfortable place where to spend a couple of nights in Oban. Sandvilla has free parking (best if you advise beforehand). Joyce and Scott are really nice people and are always ready to help out. Breakfast was great and service was excellent. Rooms were always clean and tidy. We also got some good tips for our trip in Oban. Whilst there make sure that you do the Mull & Iona Trip. A fishing trip is also suggested...great fun indeed.

We enjoyed the 10 days in Sandvilla Guesthouse. Joyce was very helpful !
She gave me extra tea,when I was sick.
Last morning Joyce got up earlier in order to give us breakfast before our train started.
We got some help in our touristic plans . We could sess a lot in the nearby area of Oban.
Everything was so extraordinary clean ! We got good books for reading !
We shall never forget the nice days ! Would be good to have the nice breakfast again !
We recommend the Sandvilla Guesthouse to all of you !
The view from upstairs is just beautiful !

My daughter phoned and booked this Guesthouse for us at 9pm on a Sunday night. We wanted only one night, the Monday, as we were staying with our daughter in Glasgow for the week, and fancied a little trip to Tobermory.
Joyce confirmed the booking and said she would see us Monday around lunchtime.
When we arrived she was very friendly and showed us to our room, which was spotlessly clean,fresh towels and toiletries in the ensuite bathroom.
The bed was extremely comfortable and we had a good night's sleep.
Breakfast was served in the lovely Breakfast room, plenty of food and tea / coffee etc.
I would recommend this Guesthouse to anyone...was excellent all round.

The Sandvilla is close to the city center, A short five minute walk. A pleasant room for our two nights. Joyce simply loves to serve people with her wonderful smile. Breakfasts were excellent, with good options. The price was reasonable, very competitive. You will not be disappointed if you stay there.

We stayed our first 3 nights of a week's holiday touring the West Coast and this b&b set a very high standard. The lovely house has been stylishly refurbished, was extremely clean, everything was done with quality in mind, the breakfasts were excellent both cooked and continental with a lot of fresh fruit always available. The location is ideal being a short easy walk to the town and ferries. Joyce was very helpful and friendly. We were two single ladies in a big twin room, and glimpses of other rooms showed them to be equally large and decorated with flair. It was up a couple of flights of stairs, which was no problem for us. Highly recommended. Private car parking to rear. Room rate was good value.
