Great location and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by the owner Paul and immediately felt welcome in Scotland. The apartment was well equipped with all the amenities. We slept well and the noise from other quests was not even apparent. We cannot wait to come back!

Great Location near Inverness, Great Value for Time and Pounds Spent

  • 5 of 5

Paul is a delight to work and converse with and does his best to ensure you have a most pleasant and enlightening stay. His appartments are in a beautifully refurnished historical building with at least 3ft walls as looking at the window resesses will demonstrate. Very quiet location but the two pubs in the town will delight with food menu items as well. Town folk here were quite friendly and helpful.

The location is reccommended for bringing a car with you, but our family did quite well and affordably with bus rides into Inverness or local Taxis from Inverness. All day bus tickets for 3people = 18pds, Taxis from or to Inverness/ Colluden one way for less than 20pds(Avoid calling Narn taxis as they add a surcharge). You can book tours from the Visitor Center in town and we visited John O' Groats, Skye, Loch Ness, Black Isle, Fort George, Castle Cawdor. We would definately reccommed Dolphin Suites for anyone wanting a nice place to relax after a day out touring. The Fish and Chips truck at the Spar on Tuesday was a great treat and a not to miss if you are in the area. Fresh off the boat fish that draws a crowd from the locals.

Lovely, affordable, well-appointed apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at the Dolphin Bay Suites for a week - a mix of business (two of the group were involved in the Highlands Military Tattoo) and pleasure. On arrival, we were upgraded to a top floor apartment. The place was immaculately clean and had everything you could need for a comfortable week. The only thing that is a slight drawback is that there is no soundproofing between apartments and you can often hear guests in other apartments (and I assume they could hear us.) Paul and Sally are warm, welcoming, and responsive - wonderful hosts. The location is perfect for exploring, but you really need a car if you want to see any sights in the area. The view of Moray Firth from the Dolphin Bay Suites is a wonderful bonus. The proximity to the pub and shops is also a plus. We would definitely stay here again.
