I stayed at the Columba along with 37 others on our Insight tour. When we arrived, a gentleman came onto the bus to welcome us to the hotel. When we left, he wished us a safe and enjoyable journey. I thought this was such a nice way to start our stay in Inverness. I enjoyed the river out front and... More

As stated in previous reviews there is no parking at the Hotel however, it is a short taxi ride from train station. It is a short walk to Theatre and Town Centre. The dinner menu was limited however staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was adequate, clean and quiet. If we were planning an overnight stay we would certainly... More

Booked this through Thomas Cook. Night-time picture in the brochure made it look really attractive, lit up by night, and it seemed to be set back from the river in large grounds! Dream on!! Yes, it's city centre but there is no parking (not stated in brochure) and you need to use Cathedral Car Park (£4.50 for 24 hours). Hotel... More

One good thing about this hotel is that you can walk across the River Ness bridge into town. It also has an excellent bar. Make sure you request a room with a river view. Rooms vary in size from extremely tiny to largish and bed sizes vary too. Breakfast is below average as is dinner. There is a lounge for... More

The Columba Hotel is in an old section of buildings. That's what makes it an interesting place. We had a room on the front of the hotel overlooking the river; we also looked up to see Inverness Castle. The hotel is close to restaurants as well as shopping. Staff very friendly and accommodating. The only thing that keeps this hotel... More

We went on a trip with CIE and this hotel was one of the hotels that the tour picked for us. When our bus arrived the staff was very quick and efficent in giving all 50 of us our roomkeys. The hotel was close to the river and the city center. It had an older touch to it which we... More

Spent there last night of our holidays. Got a good deal online so it was fair price for a 4 star hotel. Room was ok for the price, but nothing very stunning, no view thru the window. Reception staff was very nice and friendly, but bar staff was very rude (short hair, polish lady), no hi, no smile, very disappointing... More

Firstly I would say that I don’t consider the Columba to be a “Bespoke Hotel” or a 4* either. We stayed from 6-13 July in room 158 which had an internal roof view. Room was kept clean but was very hot and a fan did not improve comfort. Window opened bottom hinge to top and air intake seemed limited. Security... More
