We booked through laterooms and got a great deal. Very friendly welcome. We expected one of the poorer rooms but the lovely man on reception found us a nice double with a fantastic view. We ate in the bar and were amazed by the great prices. Not impressed by the starter -overcooked mussels but the main courses were terrific. We had a great night, very comfy beds. Breakfast the next day was a buffet and great quality though the girl in the restaurant has a face so sour she almost turned the milk! SMILE! Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view - it can't hurt!

Me and my partner own our own pub and were having a Refurb so decided for the first time in 3 years to get 5 days away.....was really looking foward to this.
we arrived at the columba hotel after a 7 hour drive..........the room which was meant to be a double was 2 single beds pushed together and made up like 2 single beds.
i even called 3 days before to make sure it was deffo a double and was assured it was.
The windows in our room didnt open as they were painted shut.....Middle of summer.
i still had a business to run so needed the wifi which didnt work for the 4 days we were here......i asked the staff and manager 4 times and explained i was losing my patience......it never got sorted.
the remote for the tv never worked.
we went down for breakfast at 8.45am
its served till 9.30
there were 6 eggs that had been there that long were like rubber and only bread crusts
when i asked the guy in the restaraunt what was going on i was told....thats how it is im afraid!

on the last day my other half brushed past the towel rail and burnt herself that badly its still in a mess.....the manager tried to give her a bandage but couldnt find the first aid kit!!!!!!so gaffa taped her arm up.....

THE LIFT IS ALSO THAT OLD YOU HAVE TO SHUT 2 DOORS ON IT BY HAND AND IT WONT WORK IF SOMEONE DOESNT SHUT THEM

the WORST experience i have ever had to deal with
STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!

Visited West coast and stayed in Columba Hotelmfor one night. Had it been longer, would have asked for better room. Expected sea view and 'big Victorian high ceilinged room' Got town view and high ceilings but small room. Weird en suite dated from 1970s bath etc purple in colour. Shower a bit ineffective but it worked. Staff on desk a bit indifferent but pleasant enough. Breakfast was good buffet style and food staff good. We expected a wee bit of luxury as it is a hotel and it did not have that. No biscuits or anything in the room and only enough milk for one cup each.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view and take your own biscuits

Spent two nights in the Columba. We had an excellent room overlooking the wharf area. The room was in two parts, one the main bedroom and two a lounge set to one side. The old elevator was something we only used once. Breakfast was very good. The location is very good, situated in the town centre and is an easy walk to bars, shops and restaurants. Free wifi is available through out the hotel.

The Columba hotel is by far the most comfortable hotel to stay in when visiting Oban, we were passing through on the bikes and decided to stop over for one night but the weather was great and enjoyed ourselves so much decided to stay another night. The food is great and the service always delivered with a smile will definately return.
