Visited here for a 2 night stay. Had been before but this trip even with covid restrictions was far superior. Our room - 203 was superb. At the front of the hotel looking right onto the castle, which was lit up lovely at night as are the bridges. Room was spotless and the shower was hot and powerful. Dinner both nights, served in the bristo was of a decent quality, 3 courses with 3 choices. Breakfast was in dining room on Sunday and was room service on Monday. Again couldn't be faulted. Will definitely return.

We came to Inverness for a weekend break and were very happy with our choice of hotel. The location is perfect, right on the riverside with stunning views of Inverness Castle, minutes away from the town centre. Parking is available at the Cathedral, about 200 yards away and is very affordable. Our room was scrupulously clean, the bed and pillows very comfortable. WiFi is free and the connection speed good. The television has built in Netflix and Now and Amazon Prime are also available if you have an account. The rainfall shower is lovely and the water hot and plentiful. Staff are friendly and helpful, common areas immaculate and good Covid hygiene practices are in place. We’ll definitely stay here on any future visits to Inverness.

We had an absolutely outstanding stay in the Columba. The hotel organised 3 rooms for us: an accessible room for Mum and doubles for my sister and my wife and I. The rooms were large and comfortable - really comfy beds. However, it's the service that really our stay special. Right from the first interaction checking in to the last, checking out, everyone we met were hugely helpful. Dinner was really good and all the more appreciated for being able to eat in the hotel during the pandemic. Breakfast was extensive and excellent. And to top it all, the all-inclusive room rates were very, very competitive. We booked thinking it was just a place to stay and left knowing that it had helped to make our trip to Inverness very special. Thank you to everyone we met.

Arrived in our favourite highland urban location to be greeted by a fabulous time working to an extraordinary set of rules. They remained upbeat throughout our overnight stay prior to commencing the NC500 A perfect location to help you relax prior to departing. Recommend paying a small fee to upgrade for a river Ness view. Braw
