Located on Scotland’s northeast coast, where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth, Inverness appeals visitors with its freshwater lake harbouring the Loch Ness Monster and the medieval castle on a hill housing splendid public gardens.
On the banks of picturesque River Ness, The Columba Hotel has just settled itself welcoming all visitors. Inside the hotel’s grand exterior façade, there are 82 guestrooms and spacious suites, each appointed in classic designs and equipped for modern-day lifestyle conveniences. Many of the guestrooms enjoy commanding views of the renowned Inverness Castle just across River Ness.
Its riverside Victoria Restaurant and MacNabs Bar & Bistro offer a choice of indoor dining in cosseted comfort or alfresco dining outdoors on the riverside terrace. With Inverness Castle and River Ness as a backdrop, dining cannot be more pleasurable.
The hotel’s prime location in the heart of Inverness provides convenient access to many shops, restaurants, churches, museums and attractions that cater to different lifestyle preferences. Ness Bridge is less than a minute walk away from the hotel and it connects the hotel to the opposite bank of River Ness. Located south-west and 20 minutes’ drive away from the hotel is Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition (a multi-media attraction) and nearby Loch Ness, home of the legendary Loch Ness monster.
“The Columba Hotel and Inverness offer yet another distinctive destination to our UK presence. Scotland with its mountain ranges, Ice Age landforms, Northern Lights and Nessie are compelling interests to international travellers,” said Compass Hospitality’s President & CEO
