Here for two nights and pleasant enough. OK breakfast - sausages recommended. Nice relaxing mezzanine bar area to look out on the harbour. Staff pleasant enough although one waiter was insistent that the ferry passing the window was going to Iona and it would take 20 minutes. This was the ferry to Lismore but I didn't want to spoil his...

A large, quite gloomy hotel on the sea front, which apparently is - or was - being refurbished. Unfortunately none of we three couples were in the refurbished part. The french windows to the balcony were locked, thank goodness, because a third of the wrought iron base of the balcony was missing. Most of the staff were pleasant. Very few...

We returned here having staying previously in 2012. Yet again, staff were very friendly and the room was great. Exceptionally good value for money. In the town right next to the water. Don't have any complaints and would stay here yet again

Staying at the Columba hotel was not a pleasant experience. My room was dismal & the window glass on the outside was filthy. Bathroom taps didn't work properly. There's a big staff training issue although the receptionist was brilliant. Although noise from other guests is often outwith the managements control, I was awakened twice in the wee hours by noise...

I was blown away with the views from my hotel room that featured x3 large windows looking out of the bay. The hotel is possibly the best located hotel in Oban. The room itself was large and comfortable, it came with free wifi, free parking, free full Scottish breakfast (like a full English but with a tatty scone). I cannot...

We booked a room at the Columba Hotel well in advance for one night in August. When we arrived we were told the hotel was full but a room had been reserved for us at the Regent, across the street. The staff at the Regent were very nice and the view from the room was great, but the room was...

We stopped at this hotel for an evening before catching the ferry to Mull. The accommodation was good value for money with a very spacious and well equipped double room with a super view over the water. With the great choice of nearby restaurants we chose to eat out in the evening however the breakfast was very good. Apart from...

Great location for all Ferry trips also great location for Trains too. Friendly staff at the hotel and also many different restaurants attached to the hotel where you get lovely meals. Breakfast is included in the room cost which is a great start to your day.
