We recently stayed in Flat 9 ( top floor) of the Dolphin Suite Bay. It is a 5 minute drive from the airport, 10 minutes to the retail park (cinema, large tesco, large selection of chain stores) and 15 minutes from the centre of Inverness. It is a great base for exploring Nairn, Inverness, the Black Isle of further afield.... More

These self-catering apartments offer a fantastic base for visiting the area. Beautiful view, and I had a balcony from which to enjoy it - if only the weather had played ball! Comfortably furnished, and very well appointed and plenty of parking too. I booked at short notice, having been disappointed in my planned accommodation, and I couldn't have been more... More

Came up with my mum and son for a weeks break for my birthday after reading the good reviews on booking.com. I have to say right from the get-go, just driving into the car park, my expectation was exceeded!! Paul was there to meet us, took us straight in to see the apartment, he collected our bags from the car... More

They may not have made their presence felt near this comfy apartment, but go across the water to Chanonry Point, or head a mile down the road to Fort George and Flipper and his dolphin friends put on a spectacular performance. A modern kitchen, king sized bed, and good sized lounge made for a home from home. I would have... More

The Suite was nice, clean and spacious. Good Location, great view, we loved it. Paul and Sally are very nice and helpful. He tell's you the best places to see in the surrounding area. Great Guy with a Historic Background! It's worth to come back.

We stayed in apartment no.3 on the top floor, it has everything you could want for a great self-catering holiday. There was even milk in the fridge when we arrived! The weather was perfect allowing us to spend time just sitting on one of the two balconies admiring the view. Perfect location for a holiday in the Highlands.

We had a fantastic time at Dolphin Bay Suites. It's a perfect base for day trips throughout The Highlands. Loch Ness, Cawdor Castle, Culloden, Elgin, Inverness... and so much more... all within driving distance. Paul and Sally, the owners of Dolphin Bay Suites, are terrific hosts, couldn't be more friendly and helpful. They're delightful people. The town of Ardersier is... More

We (two sisters) just returned from this beautiful area. We found this accommodation on Trip Advisor - it was very warm and cosy and everything you could wish for. The owners were kind, welcoming and very helpful. Great location as 5 mins from Inverness airport and looking towards the Black Isle and next to Fort George. We have already recommended... More

First, Ardesier is a sweet, quiet little village. There are two small grocery stores. But for better selection, head to Nairn and go to the Coop grocery store. (It's maybe 10 mins drive). Paul is so nice and helpful!! He was very friendly and quick to respond via email. He met us on arrival and was very helpful and knowledgable... More
