Columba Hotel Inverness by Compass Hospitality

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel run down, small rooms, worn out mattress, floor uneven with broken floors, dining room chairs too filthy to sit on, tables fit for a dumpster, food barely edible, staff unprofessional, booked and got reservation confirmation for handicap accessible room only to discover upon arrival that all handicapped rooms were taken. Hotel should be rated for one star.

This older hotel has a lot of potential to be great, it just needs some work. The size of the property is fixed so I would suggest a much lighter brighter color scheme would help offset the fact that the rooms are small. And get rid of the wall to wall carpet as it is heavily worn. It seems that this hotel is frequented by large tour groups which would account for the wear and tear. the room and linens were clean. We did skip the breakfast on morning two as the breakfast the day prior had been sitting out a while and was unappealing. If you are lucky enough to get a room facing the water the experience may have differed. The staff were very pleasant. The doors need to be thicker as we could hear every footstep and whisper in the hallway and our door jiggled in the frame whenever another door was opened in the hallway. It a bad hotel, but not a great hotel.

Room was cold, especially bathroom gave a space heater! Breakfast was ok. Won't stay here again! Only good thing it was on the river great view if your room faced it, ours didn't.

This hotel is older and does not provide much in the way of comfort.

Outstanding. Bearing in mind how old the building is, (creaky floors, lots of corridors etc), the quality and comfort of the rooms was very good. Breakfast an evening meals were of high standard and reasonably priced. Large sitting rooms with views of river. Will certainly stay there again when next in Inverness.

My stay at this hotel was mostly great, but had a few weird quirks that could be ironed out. After a long conference in Glasgow, I headed to Inverness on a lark to get some solo time and explore. Getting to the hotel was easy and it was in a great location, the staff was pleasant, and I got to my room eventually. It was tricky, since it was up a ton of stairs, which couldn't even be avoided with the elevator, and also with tons of closed fire doors that were tough to navigate with my luggage. The room was spacious and comfortable, although the wifi was very very spotty and slow. Also, the bathroom was pretty cramped and the inability to leave the door open was a bit of a pain. Finally, when I checked out, the elevator wasn't working...not an ideal end to my stay. Overall though, the location and comfort was solid.

This hotel was great. It had a fantastic location. Our only complaint would be that it was not very sound proof and you could hear people in the hall and about you. The breakfast that was included was great.
