This property is 1 minute walk from the beach. A Victorian Hotel built between 1865 and 1901, the Columba Hotel overlooks the town of Oban and Oban Bay. It has a 24-hour front desk, a traditional restaurant and 2 bars.

The rooms at the Columba have an en suite bathroom and a hairdryer. Many rooms have sea views and others look out over the wooded hillside.

The property's Bar Rio is a traditional Italian bistro, which serves coffee and cocktails, as well as children's meals. Guests can watch Sky sports on the projector screen in the bar. Takeaway meals are also available.

The Oban Distillery, which was built in 1794, is a 5-minute walk from the Columba Hotel. Oban Rail Station can also be reached in 5 minutes on foot.

This is our guests' favourite part of Oban, according to independent reviews.

  • Are there wheel chair access to the rooms.

    Good Afternoon Although we have a lift which will take you to each floor, the lift is small. So if you are able to fold wheelchair to fit. There is also a small step at the entrance to hotel as well as 2 small steps going to the lift and 7 steps to the breakfast room. So it just depends on mobility. Hope this is helpful to you. yours kindly Kerry
