Thank you to the staff in the Victoria restaurant within the Columba hotel they were very attentive and our meals were served very quickly. We were a party of 18 and all of us without exception had a thoroughly delicious dinner, 3 courses of yummyness. I'd highly recommend the Co

The best things about the Hotel were the staff, and the quality of food which was excellent throughout. The Hotel is well located on the Bank of the River, and one would expect a good view from the room, however this is not the case. Our room was located over a service road wit

Dear Guest, thank you kindly for review. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and have found major improvement on our standards. We have been working hard to redecorate and improve standards so it is pleasing to hear that our changes made are recognised and appreciated. We do encourage our team on breakfast to clean the tables fully including the chairs as they are fairly new and need to be kept clean and tidy at all times. We hope to welcome you back on a future visit to Inverness. Kind regards Columba Hotel

Are there lifts/Elevators to the rooms from the Ground floor?
For one of the floors the lift kind of stops between floors and then there are doors and stairs. Best to ask for an accessible room if stairs will be a problem.

I will be driving to the hotel on Sunday and was wondering whether there is a car park on site.
No car park on site but a couple of minutes walk to car park at the Cathedral

There are 10 friends traveling together on a CIE tour arriving on Aug 8 for 1 night. After reading the many poor reviews of your hotel I hope some action has been taken in regard to these reviews. I am a retired travel agent and tour escort, so I will contact you directly for specific requests that I have. I know you have group room assignments, but truly hope we are not on the back of the hotel which are very noisy per all the reviews.
Good Afternoon, in response to your question, we do try to allocate rooms where guests that are booked as a group are as close as possible to each other. As there are a mixture of room types in the Hotel it is not always possible to do this. However I have made a note of your comments and passed these on to our Reception Manager who will try and accommodate where possible.

I have tried o contact your hotel re my reservation but have had no response. Your web site states that you will respond within 24 hours but this is clearly not the case. Can you please respond before I have to take this further. All I want is confirmation of my booking
I hope that whatever the question you had has been answered however please contact us at the hotel directly if you still require assistance. Thankyou

"Hard to do, as rooms are allocated on arrival"
"Make customers aware that there is a spare heater hiding in the room somewhere should it get really cold."
"There are rooms with views of the river and the castle, we did not chose one as we did not spend a lot of time in our room."
"I recommend the Ness Suite as you get a large room with sitting area and a terrific view of the Inverness Castle and the Ness River"
"ask for river view room"
