Throughly enjoyed our 2 weeks at Dolphin Bay Suites. Its a lovely clean, spacious apartment with all the utilities you would need & a spectacular view. The owners were only too hapy to help with any enquiries.

Paul and his wife went out of their way to make our stay most enjoyable. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend this property. Many areas to visit nearby. The Culloden battlefield, the whiskey spey trail, Fort George.. The apartment had everything you could need. It was clean, spacious, and quiet. Great views from the second floor.

We stayed here on our recent trip to Loch Ness. We had a two-bedroom apartment on the ground floor. The apartment was spacious and clean, washer/dryer, kitchenette - everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We were walking distance to some small restaurants and stores, a mile down the road from Ft. George. The kids loved finding seashells on...

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....

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...

Came up with my mum and son for a weeks break for my birthday after reading the good reviews on booking.com.

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...

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.
