Lovely hotel on the river

Posted 28-Apr-2015
My partner and I stayed at the columba to attend a wedding in the area. The hotel itself is lovely,lots of character and very central to Inverness city centre. It would be more suited to people who are travelling without a car though as parking is situated a wee walk away in cathedral car park which you have to pay £4.50 per 24hour stay. Also when we were visiting we actually had to vacate the car park as there was a cycle race, so that wasn't very convenient. The only other complaint would be that there is no double glazing and each morning at 8am someone would be tipping copious amounts of glass bottles into the bottle bin which isn't conducive to a good night's sleep.

Good location

Posted 25-Apr-2015
Pros: Location
Dated but pleasant. The room was decent in size and clean. There was a small balcony but it was quite dirty. The strongest point is it's proximity to the railway station and town centre. That made everything so convenient. The room was a little stuffy and we had to open the window slightly to cool down the room. As a result had to endure some traffic noise but it was not too bad.

Noisy

Posted 20-Apr-2015
Four problems: 1) despite the window being open, the room was too hot overnight 2) our room was at the back of the hotel: noisy service & waste disposal trucks started arriving at 6:30am 3) the bath was very uncomfortable 4) no hotel parking Three good points: 1) The hotel is very well placed 2) The breakfast (£10 for two people) was well worth the money If the room had not been so noisy, I would have rated the hotel higher: best to request a room away from the back of the hotel when booking. Parking is easiest in the nearby pay Cathedral car park (£5.50 for 24hrs)

Local to Business...

Posted 18-Apr-2015
Pros: The location for my business meant that this was within walking distance of a review meeting that was taking place over the course of a week.
Cons: The hotel seems a bit tired and I am not sure how the 4* rating is determined.
i read the reviews of others and thought that I was getting a good deal on a reported 4* hotel although I was a bit disappointed. There are other hotels nearby that are better options.

Hotel is very close to Inverness city centre

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Had a pleasant stay at hotel and breakfast was good. Rooms are a bit tired and could do with a bit of decorating but were clean and comfortable.

Great Location right on the River Ness

Posted 12-Apr-2015
Situated on the River Ness in the heart of Inverness, this hotel provides an ideal location for any traveler to the start of the Scottish Highlands. Staff was friendly, Bar was fine and had local live music who sang depressing songs of Scottish lore. LOL

good looking and well located hotel

Posted 18-Mar-2015
Pros: perfect location as everything is in walking distance, lovely spot by the river
Cons: the signage for the hotel is very easy to miss so not the easiest place to find in the dark after a long journey
Location: close to loads of bars and restaurants and the main shopping areas. torvean golf club is very close by and a little further up that road is loch ness
this is a very good value for money hotel in a lovely location. decent sized, clean room and a good offering for breakfast. there is no parking at the hotel so a bit of a walk to the nearest car park and the sign for the hotel is not the easiest to see as you are coming past. but other than that it is hard to fault. Our TV remote was slightly damaged but worked in the main and this was a very minor issue.
