Stayed here 4 times now, great base when in Oban, fab location. Staff were as usual really friendly and helpful, we arrived early and as our room was ready they let us check in early, we had a sea view room spotlessly clean with everything we needed. Didn’t stay for breakfast as we’d an early start next morning but have had it on previous stays with no complaints. Lots of shops/restaurants and pubs within walking distance from hotel ……our favourite watering hole is the tartan tavern a warm welcome every time. We will definitely stay here again next time.

We stayed here as part of a small group tour of the Scottish Highlands. The hotel is well located within walking distance of eateries and bars in Oban. We had a drink at the attached restaurant and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We were lucky enough to have a room facing the bay which gave us a beautiful view of the lights and the water. The room was on the larger side and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was served buffet style, with plenty of options for a cooked or continental breakfast.

Definitely wouldn’t ever stay here again. Very basic room, dirty curtains hanging off window. Woken at 6am by fire alarm, went downstairs and no staff to be seen. Receptionist appears and said “maybe someone used hairdryer too much”. When asked if they will be calling fire brigade to check out the building he said “maybe”. Staff didn’t have a clue how to deal with the situation & brushed it off that there was no fire without any checks and without evacuating the building. Smelled bad everywhere, held my nose everytime I left the room. Each day of our stay there was a new drama going on at reception. Like a faulty towers sketch. A lot of fire doors in the building that are banging loudly at night.

We stayed at The Columba Hotel for 2 nights in November. This proved to be a very disappointing stay. The room was very basic, the bathroom was a particular let-down, the shower on/off lever was an allen bolt screwed in, a couple of cheap plastic disposable water cups still in cellophane and a hand dispenser. The light above the shower did not work. Breakfast on both days was another major disappointment, the cooked breakfast buffet was cold both days, added to this the waiter was rude and abrupt. I have never written a poor review before and am not one to complain at all, but this was such a disappointment. Not recommended at all, and I would never stay there again.

I loved my stay here for various reasons like friendly staff, great breakfast and budget friendly prices. The rooms were big and well lit and view from my room was also really amazing. All in all, amazing place to stay.

3 star rating should be zero. Staff unfriendly and quite aggressive. Although the room information said a grab and go breakfast was offered, now not available! However they wanted to charge for breakfast they didn’t offer. 2nd day, did have breakfast which was at best described as very poor. No vegetarian option, scrambled egg looked disgusting. No fresh fruit, very limited offering for a 3 star hotel. Got up at 5.45am to shower before early departure to find no hot water, told we should have done a call at reception, not very helpful, reception staff very defensive, I understand these things happen but no apology and no one at reception to advise. Hotel very dated, not welcoming and frankly not worth anything near what they charge. Would not recommend to my worst enemy.
