My wife and I have visited Oban at least once a year since 1978, and have stayed at many of the fine hotels available, but in our opinion the Columba is the best of the bunch. We have asked for a "bay view" room on many occasions, as sitting having afternoon tea watching the hustle and bustle of Oban Main... More

We chose the hotel for its location - sea front, centre town - and the room with sea view. And it turned out to be a good choice. Our room was on a corner, with a small sitting area overlooking the harbour and the sea. We really liked the atmosphere of the room and found it "nostalgic with a modern... More

Enjoyed staying in this hotel. Our room was newly renovated and comfortable and we had gorgeous water views. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, not great, but ok. The pastries were not very fresh.

Husband and I had a great time and the room we had overlooked the harbour. Decor was nice but the windows leaked a little but it was raining rather heavily. Bathroom was beautiful however bath was not conducive to my disability. Restaurant staff were brilliant and really friendly, nothing was too much bother for them. Stuart was absolutely brilliant in... More

Fantastic stay with friends for the weekend. Hotel was lovely, rooms spacious and food and service top class. Nothing was any trouble for the staff who went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating and to make our stay 1st class. Vikas especially helped us out and helped resolve a parking issue we encountered. Food was also good... More

We were not staying in the hotel but decided to go into Rio Bistro for dinner. It is very well decorated/furnished. Staff very nice, service was quick but not rushed. Food was excellent and prices reasonable. We will definitely return and would recommend a visit.
