Reviewed 20 May 2013

We stayed for 1 night and were very pleased with our modern, light and comfy room. The bathroom was also very nice and it all seemed fresh and new. I particularly liked the little make up mirror with lights round it. So often there is not adequate light for doing makeup. We could also park at the rear of the house. Joyce was very welcoming and Scott recommended 3 places to eat and we chose Chan Mar and had a lovely meal. It was only a few minutes walk away overlooking the harbour so house is in a very good location. Had a tasty breakfast next morning and would highly recommend

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.
