We enjoyed a delightful stay at Columba House weekend of 25 Oct 2013 with our 3 yo son. Columba House is situated in a nice and quiet area with beautiful surrounding scenary. The hotel itself is about as homey as it can get, an instant wave of comfort and warmth when you walk in. Mark and Yolanda were welcoming from the minute we walked through the doors all the way till the end. The food was fantastic, even our son cleared up his plates after dinner! (a very rare occasion). Just the right portion and just the right flavors, all perfectly combined. The view was impeccable and the staff were all very friendly. Mark and Yolanda made all 3 of us feel right at home and were accommodating from beginning to end. Breakfast was always a joy as we could see ducks marching left and right, even rabbits hopping about! We had a fantastic stay at Columba House in Kingussie and will definitely be returning again!!
