The best thing going for this place is the location, it is directly across the street from the river and has easy walking distance to anyplace in Inverness center. In order to access the apt. you have to retrieve the key from a separate location several blocks away, there is no staff in attendance at the apartment building itself. There is off street parking under the building, our particular spot was
impossibly narrow to access and against a wall so that the passengers had to get out of the car prior to parking. The apartments are built over restaurants and shops and apparently the building code require robust fire protection design features. The hallways are a maze of fire doors. Even inside the apartment you had to use door stops to keep doors open as the close forcefully unless stopped open. Our particular apartment had a balcony that looked out on nothing but an enclosed roof. The third floor location was stuffy and hot unless you opened the balcony door and kept it open. The size of the apartment was fine but the furnishings were sparse and budget. There was a fair amount of street noise from the street which is to be expected for a center city location. The kicker was the incessant cawing from flocks of seagulls at all hours along with crows. This all added up to a not very restful or comfortable stop. Perhaps other apartments represent better options but not this one. I would not recommend. Inverness is a lovely city with many options, we'll be back and looking at a variety of other options.
