The CIE tour used the Columba. Reception was pleasant and fast. We knew the place was older, and our room faced into an area where we were even with other buildings 3rd floor level. Again, we needed to seek out a fan, but that also kept our any possible noises. The included buffet breakfast was quite adequate. We had our... More

Nice hotel. Great location. Room was fine. The only problem was the layout of the hotel. My wife and I repeatedly got lost trying to take the stairs when the elevator was in use. The stairways made no sense. To go down from our room, you had to go up first...who knew? We were part of a tour group and... More

I appreciate a quirk of two - but there were a few too many to make this a great place. Small rooms don't bother me, but really found the bathroom a challenge. The lighting was iffy, but the fire door just outside our room was the biggest detraction. It "banged" every time someone went thru it. No rhyme to the... More

When we walked across the bridge to the Columba Hotel for the first time, we had high hopes - it looked like a great old Victorian building, and its website had promised comfort and modern amenities. The front lobby was all warm old dark wood. But after that, things went downhill. First off, no offer of assistance to bring our... More

We visited the Columba Hotel on a tour of Scotland. We were traveling with a group so I can say that your appreciation of this hotel will vary depending on the room you are in. We were in room 101 which was very nice with a King bed and spacious. It had a small but modern bathroom. We had a... More

The rooms are VERY small, although they were clean. Bit of a rabbit warren to find your room in the first place. I realize this is an old building and they are trying to keep it up but it was not right for us. Hardly enough room to fit us and 2 cuitcases. The restaurant leaves a lot to be... More

Old building in centre of Inverness. Nice view of castle over the river. Our room was small but comfortable with fabulous new shower. Staff are professional and pleasant. Dinner & breakfast were served in peaceful spacious dining room. Good menu choices
