“I would have happy stayed!”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

What a lovely little find the Dolphin Bay was! We stayed for 5 days and it was a home away from home. The owners were very friendly. We were very close the village shop and a short drive from a supermarket. A lovely village to explore and we even spotted some dolphins.

I would go back in a heart beat!

“Excellent Restful Break”
Reviewed 24 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I had an excellent week’s break in Ardesier. The apartment I stayed in was reasonably new and in good condition, if a little heavy on Ikea for its furnishing.
I had a second-floor apartment, and as there are no lifts, I could see this being an issue for those with mobility issues.

The décor and furnishing is functional rather than lavish, but definitely comfortable and fit for purpose. The kitchen was well equipped, with a lot of utensils provided. Having a washer/dryer in the apartment is a real luxury; having spent many hours in communal facilities in the past, being able to just set your washing going and head off is fantastic!

The bathroom was a little cramped but clean & functional, the bedroom had a comfortable bed and plenty of storage and the lounge/kitchen/diner was spacious and comfortable with some great views of the bay from the balcony.

Wi-fi coverage was a little patchy – the thickness of the walls and metallic staircases meant that coverage at the far end of the apartment was a struggle at times, but if I really needed access, I just had to be a bit flexible about where I sat with the laptop. When connected the speed was pretty good.

The complex is easy to find, with very good parking, and a great position right on the coast looking out into the bay. The village shop was useful for essentials, but I had to head to Inverness to do a proper grocery shop. Inverness is about 20 minutes drive away, Inverness Airport about 10 mins away, and a Tesco Extra halfway between the two.

“Excellent location and wonderful owners”
Reviewed 20 June 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We stayed at this property for 5 nights and it was a wonderful experience. Paul, the owner, met us when we arrived and gave us tips on what was in the local area (pubs, shops, etc) and showed us how to work everything in the flat. The flat was kitted out with milk, tea and sugar so we could have a cup of tea upon arriving without having to run straight to the market.

This is in a wonderful location to easily get to everything the Highlands has to offer and is beautifully located right on the bay. We didn't see any dolphins but it was a bit early in the year for that (we were in town for the Inverness Half Marathon).
