First of all Oban is a very small town, so there's not too much to expect here as far as hotels and service. I feel the location of the hotel was perfect. Walking distance to several bars/restaurants, the Oban distillery, and the ferry crossing. The customer service at the hotel was basically none, it was almost as if we were... More

At £142 for my son and I for one Monday night B & B in a family room this was not cheap to start with. However when we find its a dingy two rooms on the third floor....tacky, tired, threadbare in the extreme & not clean at all, neither the rooms or the old knackered bathroom complete with constantly leaking...

Booked a sea view room here for two nights. Unfortunately, the view was mostly of the parking lot, but apart from that, the room was comfortable and clean and the staff was very polite. The hotel is in a great location.

Had a one night visit in Oban while touring Scotland and decided to stay at the Columba hotel. The good news is this hotel is right in the best location in Oban. It is within walking distance to all the best shops and restaurants. Once we parked, we never got in our car again. The hotel is average at best.... More

Oban is a wonderful city with an excellent view to the Isle of Mull. I had there a sunset like a dream. The hotel is in the center of the city, near harbour, near restaurants. The staff in the hotel is very helpful.

Expensive for a very average hotel. First floor room but no pressure in the shower. Tired decor, unhelpful staff, breakfast experience not good. Staff not bothered that teapots and coffee- pots do not pour properly for example. I would not stay in this hotel again.

The hotel is a fairly typical, older property now operated through a chain (Best Western). It has been modernised but lacks the staff to maintain the standard to which it, no doubt, once aspired. Nevertheless, the facilities we had were generally good and the breakfast buffet more than acceptable. We were spoiled by staying in Room 12, which has to... More

The hotel room is ok, but not great. The staff members are very unhelpful. It's like "computer says no." First, there's only ONE key card for three people in room. When asked for more, we're asked to wait for a group check in first. We have also requested a room at a higher level in the booking. The receptionist said... More
