Columba Hotel Inverness by Compass Hospitality
We paid more than normal for the room because Rod Stewart was in town so every hotel in town was full.
But they had upgraded us to the suite which was a beautiful large room so it was well worth the money.
End of the Great Glen Way
Small shabby room at the very furthest reaches of the hotel.
As usual with many city hotels, the reception looked welcoming and 'polished' but the standard rooms ordinarily a disappointment. At first I didn't think the key had unlocked the door as I had to shoulder it to gain access; probably run out of energy as lift was broken and had to climb/walk half a mile to the room. However, the access door positively glided open compared to the bathroom door which must have dropped a couple of inches since hanging; virtually immovable. The TV was the very cheapest money could buy, likewise the bed and mattress. Okay, it's a city centre hotel in a good location but at £79 on late rooms, totally totally overpriced. During my trek I stayed at guest houses which were palatial in contrast and literally half the price. I was on my own so no great shakes, but if I'd booked a couple of nights with my family I'd definitely have had something to say. Not good at all; far more care and attention required. The manager needs to visit room 325 (?), end of the corridor on the left hand side, and question whether they perceive it to be value for money before they write off another reviewers 'unjustified' rant. As for breakfast, very basic, cheap packet jams, no marmalade/marmite and when I went to get a slice of toast came back to see my coffee and everything else had been cleared away, l'd only had a sip. At least confirm the guest has actually left the room before clearing their table. As with many other hotels it could be great, but treat the guests to what they deserve (they've chosen your hotel to stay in) not simply as cash in the bank, they won't return and will invariably write rubbish reviews.
