Columba Hotel
Ranked #11 of 13 Hotels in Oban
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Stayed whilst on business in Oban. Originally booked in Rowantree but due to a mix up ended up here. Room well decorated and spotless. Only down side in the room was noise from room next door, could hear them quite clearly. Ate in restaurant, good menu and good quality food. Breakfast an all you can eat affair and of an average standard. Service from staff first class, certainly recommend the Columba

Hotel in a great position and if you book a front facing room the view is super, we upgraded to a junior suite and the rate included breakfast. The room was a good size with two single beds pushed together which were not the most comfortable a large television with another one in the small stepped up sitting area as well (one each!) which had a sofa and two chairs, the bathroom was fine and everything in general was clean just a bit frayed round the edges, but the view made up for that. We dined in the hotel the first night and was quite disappointed with the food, my trout was very over cooked and the potatoes were reheats not a good start. The breakfast was also disappointing with eggs you could have played golf with and everything else had been kept warm for too long, perhaps the chef was having a bad day after reading other reports but I don't think so.

Our initial room had a flushing issue, so we were moved to a room with a view instead without questions.
The location is great, as was the breakfast selection - loads of both hot/cold dishes - we were glad we got up early to have better time to enjoy it fully!

Hotel ideally situated. Staff very attentive and helpful. Food excellent. Room 310 was perfect, views superb from every window. Beds very comfortable. Lift a little difficult to open and close.
We had a lovely six day break thank you.

Room Tip: Third floor sea view rooms.

The perfect location to unwind, relax and explore the west highlands and isles.
We had a corner first floor bedroom with a wonderful view of the harbour and sheltered bay.
Evening meals were cooked to perfection with a varied menu throughout the week.
Waiting Staff were efficient and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.
Duty managers personally welcomed us on arrival and wished us Bon Voyage on departure.
Really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Very little to say on the down side except the hotel WI Fi failed on the second day and despite efforts from reception could not be restored for the rest of the week, there is no comfortable lounge for evenings other than the coffee shop and although a warning sign is posted the hot towel rail caused minor skin burns if touched.

Room Tip: Book sea view rooms the views are excellent
