Columba Hotel Celebrates New Four Star Rating

Management and staff at the historic Columba Hotel on the banks of the River Ness in Inverness are celebrating after the AA awarded the Victorian hotel a ‘four stars’ rating after its annual quality standards inspection.

The hotel which is part of the Oxford Hotels and Inns portfolio joins only a handful of other hotels in the city to reach the four stars standard, and the management and staff are looking forward to welcoming visitors looking for a hotel that offers a greater level of luxury.

Commenting on the new star rating, General Manager Neil Turner said: “We’re all thrilled to have been given four stars and it’s a testament to the hard work that all the staff have put in over the last year.

“The hotel once had a reputation for being a touring venue, but it’s now entering a new era in its 127 year history and we will continue to invest in our collection of facilities and services to ensure we remain at the top of our game and attract an even greater range of guests.

“We’ve made many changes to our offering this year including the opening of our new fine dining venue - Castles Restaurant which features high ceilings and stunning views across the river and towards Inverness Castle; as well as refurbishing our popular Victoria Restaurant in modern vibrant colours and investing in our conferencing facilities which can cater from 4 – 200 delegates.”

The hotel underwent a major refurbishment programme in 2004 with an interior design scheme to complement the Victorian architecture, with a modern twist. The spacious bedrooms feature traditional pieces of furniture with contemporary transitional accessories as well as wireless WiFi broadband internet access.
