This hotel is in a perfect location in Oban with panoramic views, I would definitely recommend staying here, the friendly atmosphere and beautiful character of this hotel made our stay memorable, the mezzanine area within the coffee shop is particularly beautiful with views of the harbour where we sat and enjoyed drinks, we will be returning very soon.

This hotel's location is the best in Oban. It has a great restaurant called Bar Rio which serves a mean steak! Staff are great, rooms are very nice. There is a lady called Pooja who works there who really looked after me and my family. Also, they serve the best cappuccinos in there cafe!

Great place to stay, fantastic rooms and amazing views. Staff are so friendly... Will not hesitate to be back for another stay! The food is absolutely amazing and the steak is so juicy it just melts in your mouth. It's a family run hotel and they have done a fantastic job of making sure all guests are taken care of.

We arrived and they were a bit not even polite, and when we left they didn't even say thanks, have a good day, it was just very cold behaviour... The room was nice, but really old fashioned, the lift like from the Titanic, all the furniture was very old, our room had the TV where you couldn't almost watch it,... More

The staff: Our two year old daughter was constantly made a fuss of and she loved the attention.the staff were friendly and efficient and are a credit to the hotel. The room: It's a very old... More

Stayed in the Columba hotel 22/7/15, nice rustic hotel, location was fantastic, staff were friendly, WiFi was good, room was very clean and the cooked breakfast was A+++. Only issues were that the double bed we booked was actually 2 single beds pushed together (see pics) which was extremely uncomfortable and the outer side of the windows were very dirty... More

Very good, central location. The (seaside) view from our third floor room was quite nice. Though this is hardly a selling point for a hotel, the bathrooms had a very interesting, modern look (and towel warmers!). I would recommend going elsewhere for dinner as there are many more iconic restaurants in Oban, but the breakfast was suitable. Would definitely go... More
