Just returned nov 09 from a 5day stay, it was amazing, couldnt fault a thing, we got the best room in the hotel, thanks sarah for honouring our request. Top marks to the chef, food was brill, staff very helpful and friendly. Excellent location, right on the harbour and shops just minutes away, ample parking. .. Some of the comments dont sound so good but honestly i dont no what some ppl want so listen to me not them. I would definetly go back again.
A very satified travelstyle customer.

I have stayed here on 2 occasions before and find it to be very good particulary the location.I tried to make a last minute phone booking for the 28th and 29th of october.the first 2 calls the receptionist could not tell if there were any vacancies and she (sarah) promised to phone back but on both occasions it did not happen.On the 3rd attempt i asked for the manager and i was transferred to him. After explaining the situation he said he was not at the reception but he promised to phone back within 1/2 an hour.I am still waiting ?. i ended up phoning the caledonian and enjoyed a very pleasant 2 days

after reading some comments on trip advisor .we were dreading going to this hotel how wrong could we be , our room had been upgraded with a lcd tv and a sea view evening meals were very good i had some haddock one evening and the sauce was lovely the breakfast was buffet style which i prefer you only have what you like then ,it was a full scottish breakfast with lorne sausage and black pudding if you wanted it ,as much toast as you were prepared to cook ,the rooms were very clean and the staff very helpful only downside the lift was awaiting repair we were on the first floor so it wasn,t to bad a special mention about the manager he wasn,t afraid to roll up his sleeves and help out in the dining room please stop knocking this hotel if you can,t say anything posative the best thing to do is say nowt

Stayed at the Columba for 4 nights from 5th October 2009. Thoroughly delighted with the place. Everything was spot on. Lovely room and bathroom, clean, breakfast buffet style, good choice evening meal with a free glas of wine. All the staff were friendly and accommodating. The manager was a gentleman, the chef did us proud. There was nothing about this hotel that we could fault, and would certainly go back with the coach company that we went with, should they have another trip up to Oban. Thanks to everyone at the Columba.
