We stayed two nights at this lovely B&B. We were impressed with its location - it's a very lovely and easy walk to the center of town and we enjoyed getting to know the area. Our primary purpose for coming to Oban was to take the Staffa tour to the Hebrides islands. Because we were leaving on the ferry to...

We showed up in Oban with no reservations and chose this place randomly. I'm glad we did! Josephine met us at the door and offered to show us a room immediately which we found to be quite lovely. The rooms were spotless and the linens and towels were perfectly lovely and the kind you'd give a guest in your own...

We stayed at Sandvilla en-route to the Scottish highlands. This location, for walking into Oban, was perfect. The proprietor Jo was most welcoming and the cleanliness of the guest house second to non. Breakfast was delicious and very ample. I highly recommend Sandvilla, it provides excellent value and great guest house facilities.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights while checking out Oban. The hosts are very nice and accommodating. Quick 5 minute walk to the waterfront. After a long day of touring around the Oban area we looked forward to coming back to our room and relaxing. It was very nicely renovated.

Ideally located for a visit to Oban, within walking distance to downtown and ferries. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and were able to offer on-site parking. The room was spacious with an en-suite and was spotlessly clean: the bed was comfortable. All breakfasts were of excellent quality.

We rented a room for three nights and found this guesthouse to be a great landing place for our day trips. It is within minutes of and convenient to downtown Oban and the coast, and the breakfast was a great way to start the day. The hosts were very hospitable and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night. Our room was clean and comfortable and the proprietors gracious and helpful. While we didn't avail ourselves of the cooked breakfast (we've eaten a LOT of Scottish breakfasts the last couple of weeks) the continental breakfast was very nice and the cooked food that others were eating looked great. I would...

Stayed at the Sandvilla for two nights in September 2016. Rooms were extremely clean and very cozy. Josephine and Robert were extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations (Eeusk was super) and tours of the islands of Staffa and Iona. The breakfast was cooked to order and terrific – they worked with my wife's food allergies and we're very flexible. They even...
