We booked this hotel on a winter special offer which was great value for money. The room had its ups and downs, it was clean, with comfy beds with good linen and towels. However the shower was a bit temperamental as was the tiny TV. Breakfast had a really good choice and the staff were very helpful and friendly. There... More

I booked through late rooms and got a very good price for a double room for a couple of nights. As I was working this seemed reasonable.The hotel is in a great location, looking over the River Ness, unfortunately my room had no view, which was a shame. There is no parking but just a short walk there is 24... More

We had the table d'hote evening meal but it was interrupted by our visitor keeling over just after the main course with what appeared to be a stroke. The hotel manager (Brian) came to our aid and was brilliant in organising everything including getting the paramedics to the hotel in... More

Booked this with an discount voucher so we had a really good deal for DBB. The reception staff on checking in were really friendly. Our room was nice and cosy, it was a very cold Inverness day! The bathroom and room itself was spotless and a good size with a king size bed. Our view was overlooking the back which... More

My partner and I met up with some Canadian friends in Inverness while they were trekking around Scotland. We stayed overnight at the Columba. The facilities were comfortable and clean. Staff was helpful and friendly. We'd stay again.

The perfect location by the river Ness right in the city center, in a short walking distance to main visiting points and the bus station. Staff was lovely; very kind and supporting, large and spotless toilet, great shower and room was very comfortable and well supplied.
