LISTING DESCRIPTION: Ness Retreat is a bright first-floor Apartment located in a quiet cul de sac, within a popular area of Inverness. It’s close to many amenities, such as Eden Court Theatre & Cinemas and walks along the River Ness and throughout Ness Islands. Bught Park, Inverness Floral Hall and The Highland Archive Centre are within easy walking distance. Equally, the City Centre and many eating establishments and shops are only ten minutes walk from our cosy Apartment. Ness Retreat offers seclusion, peace and comfort within the heart of the City. APARTMENT SPACE: We aim to create a cosy ‘home from home’ with comfort and cleanliness as priorities. The Living Room is equipped for relaxation with a reclining leather sofa, Stressless Chair and a 40” full HD television complete with Blu-ray/DVD player and use of NETFLIX. There is also free Wi-Fi and a range of organised Tourist Information, Books and Guides for the use of Guests. The kitchen is conveniently situated off the living room and is fully fitted with gas hob, electric oven, fridge freezer, washing machine/dryer and microwave. The bedroom is stylishly decorated offering a choice of pillows and tog rating. There is also a radio clock and TV with remote. All rooms have views out to the open landscaped Courtyard where our designated private parking is also located. Hot water is available at all times and the Shower Room has recently been upgraded offering a powerful shower and additional lighting, plus there is a plentiful supply of towels. The Apartment is quickly and easily heated when required, making Ness Retreat a cosy place to stay in the autumn and winter months too. This apartment is fully furnished incorporating a spacious entrance hall with plenty of storage, 1 bedroom with double bed, lounge and separate well equipped fitted kitchen, which includes washing machine/dryer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave oven, fridge and freezer. GUEST ACCESS Ness Retreat is part of a Modern Apartment Complex, located on the first floor. There is a shared external doorway at the front and rear of the building. Our Apartment Complex is very quiet and it is rare to meet other residents when entering or leaving the building. When entering the rear doorway of the building, you will find a short flight of stairs direct to our Apartment. When entering via the front doorway, there is a short corridor, which incorporates one fire door, before you reach the short flight of stairs to our Apartment. We recommend guests use the rear door entrance at this time. We also provide portable hand sanitiser so guests can use this when entering or leaving our Apartment Complex. PETS: Unfortunately our Apartment is not suitable for pets. DISABLED ACCESS: Our Apartment is on the first floor so regrettably may not be suitable for some disabilities. BIKES: Guests have access to a locked bike store should they have bikes or wish to hire bikes. We are sorry, but due to the current situation with COVID-19, we are not allowing access to the bike store at this time. This first-floor Apartment is well situated within Inverness, less than 5 minutes from the scenic River Ness and Islands and Eden Court Theatre. More

About the neighbourhood
Ness Retreat is situated in a popular and secluded area of Inverness. The area is well landscaped with trees, open spaces and public parks. We are situated 2 minutes walk from Ness Walk which provides a ten-minute stroll to the City Centre passing Eden Court, Inverness Cathedral and many popular eateries, whilst enjoying views of the River and Inverness Castle. The City Centre offers a wide range of shops, activities, bars and restaurants and Eden Court is only five minutes away from our Apartment and boasts theatres, cinemas, galleries, cafe bar and restaurant. Stroll south along the Riverside to Ness Islands, Bught Park and the Caledonian Canal where there are even more opportunities for walks, cycling and outdoor pursuits.
Getting around
Ness Retreat has its own designated parking space so there is no stress with parking your vehicle once you arrive. Most of Inverness's main amenities are within easy reach, so you can properly relax by leaving the car at the Apartment and visiting areas on foot. However, there is also a local bus service, with stops nearby and the train station is a fifteen-minute walk from the Apartment.
