Very convenient for centre of town and well placed for ferry terminal. Parking very convenient.
If lift not working it could be a bit difficult for anyone with mobility problems
Convenient to access to a ferry.
Staff unfriendly and little knowledge of what was going on in Oban. Room was not cleaned. Breakfast dull. A family room with 3 beds was booked - this was 2 single matresses on a double bed and a fold up squashed in too. Our car was blocked in its space by the managers car for a lot of the time
Only stayed overnight but it was very central and handy for ferry.
Possibility of parking problems - we got one of the last two spaces in the public car park
Very nice hotel very nice staff wonderful location, would recomend hotel to friends and family and I would stay there again.
We were all very pleasantly surprised -It is several years since I was last in Oban and the whole hotel appears to have undergone refurbsihment -staff were attentive and polite and the breakfast was excellent -thank you very much.
Location. Free wifi. I managed to 1 of the 6 free parking spots.
Very old fashioned, shoddy, grubby. Mind you, that pretty much sums up Scotland.
Great central location, room overlooking harbour, much to see and watch
The room was very comfortable with lots of windows and a view to the harbour
At first not sure but the staff were very helpfull, room was comfortable but not quiet heard tv's and toilets flushing. Food in restaurant was very good breakfast was plentiful all but the same each day fried eggs not the most healthiest maybe you could order scrambled to save waste. No entertainment in evenings, also a lot of painting going on in the hotel.
Warm friendly welcome, great staff, good central location.
Certain areas (stairwell) could do with a paint job.
I have stayed at Columba on more than one occasion and have always had a pleasant stay ,and the staff are great
The staff were wonderful - really friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was comfortable and modern, and the hotel was really easy to find.
Proximity to harbour was a bit of a problem as the ferries seem to leave their engines running all night so we didn't sleep that well - such a pity as other than that our stay would have been perfect.
the hotel was excellent there were lots of things i liked about the hotel including the lovley room, the staff and the breakfast
the staff was lovely and very helpful,food was very good,beautiful see view from the hotel room,i would stay there again
