We got married in Inverness four years ago and decided to go back for a visit for our anniversary. We now have a 15 month old so thought a serviced apartment would be the best option for us. The Dolphin Bay Studios exceeded our expectations - the pics in the website don't do it justice. Our apartment was lovely -... More

We emailed Paul the previous evening before our check-in and I had a reply the next morning when we woke up. Upon arrival at the apartment I phoned and on the Sunday Paul was there within 30 minutes to check us in. He gave us advise on the nearby shops and attractions. Warm welcome. Beautiful , clean , awesome location... More

It's an amazing place to stay, if you have a car. Within walking distance of Fort George, ideal for walks at the seashore. Accommodation was spacious, clean, and the hosts were very pleasant and helpful. If we ever visit the Highlands again, I wouldn't hesitate to return here.

Ideal base for travelling around the highlands and very comfortable apartment to come back to at night. Lovely view over the water especially at night. Faultless accommodation - everything you need in a holiday let. ( agree with Nancy J - the dishwasher has spoilt me). Friendly and informative welcome. I would certainly come here again and totally recommend it.

This is perfectly situated to explore the Highlands and the far north of Scotland. A friendly welcome to an apartment with all that you would need, clean and comfortable. Wonderful views over the Moray Firth, Plenty to see nearby and along the coastline. Just the place for a relaxing uncomplicated break , with no request being too much trouble.

Paul met us with a cup of tea when we arrived. There was even some milk in the fridge! He explained a few of the things to do in the nearby area and then left us to our unpacking. The apartment was perfect for our party of 3 adults and one child and had a good-sized kitchen and wi-fi access.... More

We were welcomed by Paul and Sally, who unpacked our car and made a cup of tea for us, such a warm and friendly welcome after a long drive. The apartment catered for all our needs (no 5), even a dishwasher - wow - need to have one at home now as totally spoilt on holiday. The apartment was very... More

This apartment was cozy, clean, comfortable and had all the amenities and appliances we needed. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful - their recommendations for meals were spot on. I enjoyed its convenient location and access to the outdoors. I enjoyed birdwatching and dolphin watching from the balcony (with a scope) and walking on the beachside trail. The only... More

Stayed at Dolphin bay suites from Sept 1st for three nights. Greats sea views across to Chanonory point from balcony and most windows. Owners Paul and Sally were most friendly and helpful nothing was to much trouble for them if we had any problems they had them sorted in no time at all. Would recommend these suites they are well...
