Great location with wonderful views over the bay. Walking distance to the ferry and the whisky distillery. Local seafood and ice cream excellent. Staff helpful and friendly. Parking limited so arrive early. Otherwise, there is paid parking until 6 pm

Stayed here for one night on our way to Skye. Our room was big and clean and had a lovely view of the harbour. A couple things in the room (a chair/the drapes) were a little worn but we're pretty easy going and the view and level of cleanliness made up for this. Slightly disappointing was breakfast. The quality of...

Here for two nights and pleasant enough. OK breakfast - sausages recommended. Nice relaxing mezzanine bar area to look out on the harbour. Staff pleasant enough although one waiter was insistent that the ferry passing the window was going to Iona and it would take 20 minutes. This was the ferry to Lismore but I didn't want to spoil his...

A large, quite gloomy hotel on the sea front, which apparently is - or was - being refurbished. Unfortunately none of we three couples were in the refurbished part. The french windows to the balcony were locked, thank goodness, because a third of the wrought iron base of the balcony was missing. Most of the staff were pleasant. Very few...

We returned here having staying previously in 2012. Yet again, staff were very friendly and the room was great. Exceptionally good value for money. In the town right next to the water. Don't have any complaints and would stay here yet again

Staying at the Columba hotel was not a pleasant experience. My room was dismal & the window glass on the outside was filthy. Bathroom taps didn't work properly. There's a big staff training issue although the receptionist was brilliant. Although noise from other guests is often outwith the managements control, I was awakened twice in the wee hours by noise...

I was blown away with the views from my hotel room that featured x3 large windows looking out of the bay. The hotel is possibly the best located hotel in Oban. The room itself was large and comfortable, it came with free wifi, free parking, free full Scottish breakfast (like a full English but with a tatty scone). I cannot...

We booked a room at the Columba Hotel well in advance for one night in August. When we arrived we were told the hotel was full but a room had been reserved for us at the Regent, across the street. The staff at the Regent were very nice and the view from the room was great, but the room was...
