Our tour provider booked this property as part of their U.K tour. This is a very old hotel and as such has some issues: Our bathroom window would not close, the pub next to us was noisy and the property has maintenance issues that should be addressed. The buffet breakfast was typical of what is served at other hotels in... More

We stayed here for one night while on tour. The location is very picturesque, the river in front and a typical older Scottish building. Our registration went very smoothly. Our room was small but clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was small as well but adequate. Our meals were very good and the serving staff did a great... More

Stayed for one night in this hotel. Warm welcome when we arrived at 21.00. Quite a tired room could do with a spruce up, but bed comfortable and clean.Plenty choice for buffet breakfast,smooth check out in morning.

We stayed here for one night on a tour. The check in process was so quick and efficient. The surroundings do need some upgrades and some of our fellow travelers had complaints about being to warm. But all in all, it was an okay place to stay.

This hotel has the rudest, most disrespectful Russian receptionist I have encountered since the 60's in the Soviet Union. The manager, to whom I asked to speak, trembled and coward before her and deferred to her rather than discuss a matter before me. Do not expect them, to uphold deals struck on line as in her words they "lose money... More

We stayed in this Hotel on a tour. Quick check in and out. Nice dinner and breakfast. We had a show which was quite good. Location was beautiful, on the lake. It's an older Hotel that is being upgraded. There was a nice new bathroom in our room. I like the older Hotels and this one checked all the boxes.... More

Have stayed here on a few occasions. Once booked by myself, the other booked by other people it's a pleasant enough hotel and not far from town centre. The rooms are ok but could be kept a little more up-to date. Occasionally we had problems with the water being to cold in the room and were moved to another, then... More

That sounds like an excerpt from a home makeover TV programme, but pretty well encapsulates the Columba. Great location and a classic Victorian facade, but the romantic imagary dissolves quickly when you walk through the front door. Seemingly everything is beyond it's sell-by date; tired carpets, furniture and soft furnishings in the main. In the room itself, everything needs a... More

We stayed one night at this hotel during the Loch Ness Marathon/ River Ness 10K weekend and found the hotel was situated in an ideal location of Inverness on the banks of the River Ness. The hotel is within a few minutes walk of the city centre and has plenty of bars and good restaurants in close proximity. The main... More

We accepted the itison coupon offer and very good value. We loved the location, being visitors to Scotland we enjoyed the walks up the River Ness, just beautiful at our front door. I was a wee bit concerned when the lady at reception to welcome us evening of 21st was a bit sharp with us. She offered us morning paper... More
