Inverness is Heavenly
The hotel is right on the River Ness, across from Inverness Castle and the heart of the old city. Walk out the door and there are pubs, restaurants, shops all within easy walking distance. friendly staff willing to answer all my questions. We arranged two day tours (Happy Tours) in advance and were thrilled to learn they picked up at our hotel! Inverness is a jewel of a town and we will be going back there again and again.

The Ness Suite is where it's at
Charming old hotel with views of Inverness Castle. I can't say much about the hotel other then I booked the Ness Suite and it was a huge and nicely appointed room. I don't know the condition of the smaller rooms but this one was very nice. Overall condition of the hotel is fine, it's pretty basic and so is the service. The breakfast in the morning is terrible, better to go some place else to eat. If you need to spend a night in Inverness the Columba is fine, just stay in the suite if you can.

Not the best choice.
The hotel was dirty, our room was dirty and we were not impressed at all even though the reviews said otherwise.

Step back in time, but with modern plumbing.
Using the stairs reminded us of Hogwarts. It's booked by tours so your requests may wait on them. High ceiling rooms. River view was great. Staff was very responsive to a shower plumbing problem. Scotland hotels don't provide wash cloths!

Good hotel, just some quirks
This hotel has an amazing location, awesome aesthetics, and a decent hotel overall. There were some hiccups though... we arrived at the same times as two tour buses who were checking into the hotel at the same time as we were, luggage was everywhere! We requested a river view room, because that was one of the main reasons we chose this hotel was for its location, little did we know that this would leave us with the impossible task of trying to get our luggage to our room. We had a room on the 3rd floor, but the lift aligns with the 3rd floor of the new addition of the hotel, not the original structure. To get to our room, you exit the lift and proceed through two "half-doors" (fire doors?), then down one step, then up six steps and through another set of "half-doors" to get to the 3rd level of the old structure. This isn't anything anyone can really fix but it left a bit of a lasting memory... The room was adequate, best was okay although a little firm and the mattress was thin, one thing in the room that we found annoying was the bathroom door is considered a fire door and had a self close hinge on it that made an atrocious noise when you opened it... not the most subtle of late night trips to the bathroom. Outside it is beautiful, there is no onsite parking though, you are asked to pay five pounds to park at the Cathedral and the hotel gives you a voucher for the bar in exchange. Overall good hotel, just some little quirks that made the stay interesting.
