Things didn't get off to the best of starts. You're website quite clearly states check-in from 2pm. To be informed by a surly receptionist that the room is not ready and to come back in an hour wasn't great. The room was clean and comfy however how about using curtains that fit (rm 102). The divan is grotty how about the use of a valance? I particularly liked the use of toilet roll to block the gaps in the window great until it rains. The bathroom was clean however the Black mould in the shower head was unacceptable.
The final nail in the coffin was the absolutely appalling breakfast. The choice is awful. What if you don't eat white bread? The pastries seem to have been on show for a matter of days, the buffet was dreadful, over or undercooked food. What did you do to the potato scones? Over cooked and rubber. The fresh fruit was a joke with the grapefruit looking like it had been put out for a few days.
Unfortunately this is not the standard you expect from a modern day 3 star hotel. So much potential unfortunately let down by lack of attention to detail How many bulbs are out in both lighting chandeliers in the breakfast dining area? this sums the establishment up I'm afraid. a disappointing stay

I should start with the location - top class right in the center close to market street and all eateries. Sea view rooms are sikkk tho we couldn’t get one. Lovely and helpful staff. Shashi one of the best staff. Met few others who are always there to Assist you. Parking available(limited space) but pay and park is huge so no issues. Breakfast is alright. Would definitely go back again!! Keep up the good work cheers !!!

The staff could not have been more helpful this time. Really great customer service.

Our room was amazing, overlooking the bay with a lounge area. It’s all very clean and modern. Loved it. Want to come back again.

The lift remains a curiosity.

I was here for one night. The room was fine and perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay. Searching for accommodation in Oban I thought they were all somewhat over-priced.

The hotel is located in the centre of town, next to the marina and just a short walk from the railway station.

We ended up at the Columba after a terrible experience at the Lancaster. Was very pleasantly surprised by the spacious CLEAN rooms. Nice view of the water, and good central location in town. Breakfast was good, and we enjoyed our time at the hotel bar. I would definitely stay again! Every staff member we interacted with were very professional, helpful and friendly.
