I booked this hotel as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend and booked the dbb package for 2 nights. Check in wasn't good, it wasn't explained how dinner or breakfast worked and we weren't shown or told how to get to our room we were simply passed the key! Our room on the second floor was comfortable, clean and warm... More

Clean room in a convenient location. Bed fairly comfortable. Washroom nice. Breakfast better than average. My one complaint: the two times I stayed here, room wasn't ready when I arrived ~ once at the check-in time, the other maybe 20 minutes before. On the plus side ~ they hold luggage (although the location isn't the most secure ~ a corner... More

I saw a few poor reviews about this hotel, but, honestly, the hotel was quite good. It was in a great location, and the restaurant there was fairly good. The only negative would be the plumbing. The toilet didn't flush well and the water was sporadic. All in all, though, it was a very good place to stay, especially for... More

Enjoyed a long weekend at the Columba on a dinner bed and breakfast deal. Very friendly staff. Evening meal was lovely however breakfast was ok but queuing and waiting for food to be cooked and replaced. It wasn't that busy so no reason why we had to wait. Very Central for shopping and nightlife in Inverness. Room was a fine... More

We were given a warm friendly welcome at reception on our arrival and this level of courtesy service and friendliness of staff continued throughout our stay. The food in the restaurant both at breakfast and dinner was excellent and the bottle of red... More

Perfect Location, amazingly friendly and helpful staff and the most wonderful breakfast, The room a bit tired but the hotel currently upgrading rooms but it was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed. Brilliant shower head over bath and staff couldn't do more to make your stay as pleasant as... More

The building itself is beautiful from the outside and is right on the waterfront, however inside it is very old and in need of renovation. The bathroom was very old and the carpet in the room was quite grubby. Breakfast was great, I had 2 lovely poached eggs made to order. Overall I would say that this hotel is pricey... More
