Was a bit wary after some of the reviews on here but I needn't have worried, it was very good. Friendly girl on reception when I checked in and good directions to my room which was on the first floor with a view out over the town. I didn't find it noisy at all. The room was spacious, clean and... More

Me and my partner visited Oban for a relaxing weekend and booked columba for our stay. The location was very good and the room was clean. these were the only good things in this hotel. The shower had warm to cold water and almost no pressure at all. After we complained in the reception and the manager they said that... More

From our six different places we stayed at this was the cheapest, also the most uninteresting. Quite worn down, service was without much smile. Room was good enough for a good nights sleep. Breakfast was by far the most uninspiring we had all through Scotland. Location is perfect, but many hotels in Oban has that. So on a budget guess... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 days mini break. It was awful. The cleanliness left a lot to be desired, but the worst thing was a cold shower, it's the first time I have stayed in a hotel with no hot water to shower. The breakfast was terrible as well, seemed like watered down beans, luke warm food. I did... More

We booked a sea view room at Columbia Hotel in Oban though Booking.com. On arrival we found that the room we were allocated in no way resembled the photos on the websites (booking.com or Columbia). The photos associated with the room showed space, chairs, three windows etc, the room we got was just big enough for a double bed and... More

Got into town late on a Saturday. All the larger hotels on upper Loch Lomond were fully booked by bus tours so we continued on the Oban. We had to settle for the Columba. Good location, near the pier, and next to main street, but this does contribute to noise at night. Elevator was new when Victoria was queen, the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights b&b from 11-13/11/16, on a good deal from booking.com (£108 total bill). Our double room with ensuite was spacious with a view of McCaigs Tower which was great. Well-kitted out with hairdryer, iron & ironing board, kettle, TV, trouser press, etc. The only downside was a big trickle of a shower in what was... More

Just back from a weekend in Oban. First of all the location of the hotel is great and there's pay and display parking outside till 6pm. Always lots of spaces when we were there. So easy to walk anywhere in the town. I had booked a double room with sea view. I was concerned about the size of the bed... More
