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...

As above, thoroughly excellent weekend with friends in Oban, Robert and Josephine helped ensure we had a fantastic stay at the Sandvilla Guest House, they could not have been more helpful and the breakfasts were to die for. We will definitely return in the near future.

Hi Ian, It's good to know you enjoyed most of the facilities we offer here at Sandvilla. It's disappointing that you thought the parking was a problem as you were able to benefit both days from the free parking we offer. Our car park is at the rear of the house and easily accessible, however if you feel uncomfortable with...

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!!

Could not fault the hospitality of Josephine and Robert. A very warm welcome awaited us as did a beautiful, comfortable, spotless room.

This was a nice place to stay for our visit to Oban, a beautiful Scottish port as part of our whisky tour.
