“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for a short break - 3 nights and explored around the area. Everything was great from the booking process, to arrival, our stay and departure. The suite was impressively well equipped and the small details such as the washing up liquid, tea, coffee and loo paper were ideal!

Although we had a ground floor apartment with a limited view of the sea everything it was no issue.

PROS
Good location
Well equipped
Comfy beds
Very clean & well maintained
Quiet
Value for money

CONS
Wifi a bit flaky
Eating out is limited in the village - need to travel by car

TOP TIP - walk to Fort George along the shore path!

Stayed June 2013, traveled with family

We stayed in apartment 9, which has great views and a bakcony. You do have to carry your bags up 2 flights but don't have noises above. It's a good situation for exploring the area. We enjoyed visiting Nairn, Blair Castele an d Findhorn. The apartment is well equipped but we had some issues when there. The bed was fine for us but might possibly be too firm for some.
The owner is chatty and helpful and very kindly helped with our bags.

We have had another 2 weeks holiday at Dolphin Bay Suites and it was wonderful. The apartment was exceptionally clean and very well equipped. The beds, particularly the double bed was so comfortable ( I didn't sleep in the twin beds so cannot comment but sure they were just as comfortable).
Paul and Sally are the best and sort out any little problems immediately.
So for this review "wonderful, fantastic, excellent" are the words to describe Dolphin Bay Suites.

Paul and Sally make all guests very welcome and can't do enough to help. The appartments are of a high standard, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Information pack is comprehensive and well thought out.

Room Tip: Top rooms have fantastic views.

Just spent seven days here (late April/early May). The weather wasn't very kind, but the apartment, and the help from Paul and Sally, was great!
Well placed to visit places/sites of interest, and the views, when the weather reveals them are breathtaking.
If distillery visits are "your thing" you are spoilt for choice.
We were in apartment 9, which has glorious views across the Moray Firth (you are right on the water's edge). It is well equipped, so self catering was easy.

We went to Dolphin Bay over Christmas and Ney Year, It was just magical.. Beautiful view from the apartment (we had number 3,top one overlooking the bay)
We stayed for 11 nights, we saw the owners a few times and they were very helpfull (even getting a yorkshire pudding tin for our xmas dinner as we didnt have one)
Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and the rooms are immaculate...
Really dont have a bad word to say about the place...
Went to Nairn,Inverness,Lochness,Ardesier and Fort George whilst we were there and loved them all...
New Years was amazing and should be done for defanite....
We loved it and would (WILL) be going back again...
