Sandvilla Guest House
Ranked #17 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 February 2013

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.

Just returned from 4 days at this excellent B & B. Double room was lovely and bright, good storage for clothes. Ensuite with shower with supply of shower & shampoos. Towels can be changed daily if required. The room also has a TV and clock radio. Also coffee & tea facility and hair dry in room. Breakfast was full traditional, or boiled, poached or scrambled egg with toast or continental. Also available was a buffet of cereals, fruit and fruit juice. Something to suit everyone's taste. There is also private car parking which was really good as you have to pay to park in the street. We were looked after by Joyce who we found to be a very lovely lady who always asked how our day was. The B & B is only five minutes from the town centre which has many places to eat out. We would not hesitate to recommend this guest house to anyone.

My partner and I spent what could only be described as an amazing weekend together in a lovely bnb that is sandvilla; where the rooms had very good closet space and drawers. Good sized ensuite with shower and nice little sets of soap, shampoo and shower gel that was replaced daily after use. Other tangible amenities to this bnb are that they provide free WiFi and off road parking at rear. The cleanliness was more than expected with room and ensuite cleaned daily with bed made along with more refreshments such as coffee, tea, sugar and milk made available in the room. The dining room was very appealing where breakfast was served each morning, they serve up a great full Scottish breakfast at sandvilla. It is a good start to a day of hiking. No complaints can be made from our experience at this bnb.
On the whole I would recommend this lovely bnb to a family member or friends, situated brilliantly up the road from an excellent steak house in walking distance from all the local shops and bars with plenty to do in the area. Too much really for us to do with just 3 nights stay there.
