Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very convenient location for all Oban amenities. Clean and comfortable room. Excellent and very helpful host. Breakfast is not included but available very nearby at about a two minute walk. Small fridge in the room was very handy.

Lovely establishment located near the town centre. Pristine clean, very quiet, comfortable beds, parking available on the street (free from 6pm to 9 am.) A few good places available in town from 8 am for breakfast. I would certainly stay here again.

If you are looking for a lovingly appointed, immaculately clean guest house close to the town center, look no further. I had a relaxed, quiet, delightful 3 night stay. Sunny skies helped, but equally sunny and helpful was the proprietor Josephine. And a 5-minute walk to town center. The room was ample, en suite with thoughtful upgrades like a fully lighted mirror in the bathroom and decorative full length mirror. Bed was scrumptious. If you are looking for included breakfast or community sitting room you might want to look elsewhere but for me, Sandvilla and its most reasonable price were quite the treat.

Lovely guest house just up the hill from Oban city center and an easy walk. It is adjacent to a number of small guest houses. The room was lovely and comfortable. Josephine was very friendly and very helpful. Parking is tricky in the area but she does have a couple of spots out back for hire, and highly recommended.

We had a lovey stay at Sandvilla. The rooms were beautiful and clean, lots of electrical outlets, nice shower room with complementary toiletries. The bed was comfortable and offered two types of pillow. We both slept very well. The owner was friendly and discreet, and was available when needed. There was free parking to the rear of the property. While the cars were double parked we were never inconvenienced by it. Sandvilla is situated on a side road just before the high street. All the attractions, shops, restaurants etc are within a few minutes stroll, but far enough away to avoid any traffic or pedestrian noise. Highly recommended. Thank you for a comfortable stay!

What a beautiful bed and breakfast this is! 😊 we would definitely recommend anyone to stay here as it so lovely and is based in a fab location. There are plenty of eating places and bars near to the B&B also. If you want to do some site seeing you are not far from some great things to see.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Location: very good - far more central than options that are further from the centre. ;-) Welcome: Josephine brilliant - some queries prior to our stay were dealt with really well. Thank you! Room: traditional, nothing spectacular, no view to speak of, but everything just right and clean. Excellent plusses... extra power sockets on an extension (I always take one - no need to use it here!)... a kettle big enough to make proper mugs of tea... a real fridge... the shower room just exemplary. Breakfast - there is no breakfast - TA used to imply that there was - hence our interaction with Josephine before our stay = but you have the fridge and you can ask for bowls and cutlery. Yoghurt, fruit and granola and we were set up up. Simples! Would certainly recommend and stay again.

Just back from a weekend staying at Sanvilla. Warm welcome and lovely wee single at the top of the house. Noticed bedding was feather and am allergic to feathers. I should have said on booking but it’s rare to have feather bedding these days and I forgot. I mentioned it before going out for dinner and everything was changed for my return. Sorry Josephine, but appreciated. Nice shower-room with a proper cabinet to store toiletries . Small fridge in room was a bonus. Everything was clean and welcoming. Central location without hill climbing is perfect!

The host was very welcoming, warm comfortable feel to the place. Helpful with places to go in Oban. Relaxed feel, left to enjoy your stay. Everything is pretty much a short walk from the guest house. Parking outside the guest house is pay and display however there is limited guest parking at the rear of the property. Room and bathroom was spotless. There was also a fridge in the room. Decent hair dryer. Price for one night was well worth the money, for a clean and comfortable stay. No breakfast due to Covid, completely understandable. Homemade tablet was delicious, nice touch. Would highly recommend.
