Stayed at the Columba for one night only and had a very enjoyable stay. Dinner and breakfast were lovely. Our room was small but probably because we were on an Easy breaks deal, but we had no complaints about it. It was spotlessly clean and very warm and cosy. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. We would highly recommend. Only... More

I stayed here in a single room. The staff were very helpful and friendly, especially the young man waiting at breakfast. The check in was efficient, the room spotless and adequately equipped and the breakfast buffet fine. The hotel was in a great location on the banks of the Ness, very close to the town centre and offered very good... More

Great hotel for a weekend break. Beautiful views of the castle & river and located really close to shops and nighlife. Room was small but immaculate and had everything we needed including great Wifi. I had a really sound sleep, the bed was comfy and there was no noise from traffic as our room faced the rear. The bar was... More

Quiet boutique hotel just off main street but within easy walking distance of the town. Very professional staff and receptionist Gary was very helpful to us by printing our flight tickets. Good standard of accommodation, very well maintained and comfortable. Some rooms have river view and its lovely. Could not fault this hotel.

We stayed one night and found the hotel staff friendly and helpful . Good selection at breakfast and our room was clean and comfortable . Decent Wifi signal too. Room 303 has some good views over the river although there were some eerie noises coming from the adjacent cupboards during the night. Could it be a ghost or a noisy... More

I can't fathom how some establishments pass as accommodation. Beautiful on the outside but once you take that long walk to the ends of the earth where they place tour groups, things aren't so beautiful anymore. Rooms are appallingly tiny, especially for 2 people, staff in the restaurant are curt, rude and need to be trained in acceptable table service!!... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review following a stay in October. I am sorry if we did not meet with your expectations. I must say that we feel our breakfast offering allows plenty of choice with over 9 hot options, 7 cereals, juices, chesses, cold meats, fruit, pastries, pancakes, yoghurts, toast with preserves and of course beverages. Unfortunately, being... More

This hotel is really handy for town and we got a really good online deal on the cost. The room was generally okay but with a very creaky bed. The major issue for us was the breakfast, we went down at 9:30am and breakfasts were served until 10am. They seemed to run out of everything (to the extent that one... More
