“Two night stay was a lot of fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We took a 2 bed apartment with another couple for a 2 night stay in Inverness and had a great time. Place is well looked after with underground parking, 2 bathrooms & decent living space, in honesty we did not spend too much time there as the location means going out to places like the Heathmount and the Rocpool was a cinch (check them both out when you are in town).

Room Tip: River views are best but more expensive, save the money and take a rear facing room if you don't...

We stayed in apartment 404 for 3 nights. The location is perfect - within walking distance of several great restaurants and the train station as well. The apartment is beautiful and modern with all the amenities. It is spacious and the view of Inverness Castle is stunning. Everything was handled perfectly and the staff managing the apartment was very helpful. I cannot wait to go back to Inverness and when we do, we'll definitely be staying here again. Leaps and bounds above an ordinary hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011

We stayed here 2 nights and were very impressed. The apartment size, styling and cleanliness was outstanding and the meet and greet service well organized and helpful. This apartment is very central so expect noise with windows and doors open, which was actually necessary due to the heating - which was difficult to turn down.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

1st impression very good. Apartment spotless and beautifully furnished and contains everything you need.
However that's where the excitement ended, on arrival on the Friday afternoon we decided to go onto the balcony to view the river, as this was the only way we could see it. Unfortunately our view was of a car park directly across the road on our level and was frequented by young hoodies drinking and arguing which meant we couldn't use the balcony and were reluctant to stand at the window as they were looking over. This continued throughout the whole weekend although when we rang Gillian on the Friday she said she would contact the police but we didn't see any attending. This is obviously a regular meeting place for these people so I'm sure this isn't the first complaint made. When we first viewed the apartment on the friday afternoon we were seriously considering staying a third night but within an hour we had totally changed our minds.
Nice apartments shame about the view

Room Tip: Try to book a room facing directly onto the river or on the 4th floor.
