Our 5 day break in February was wonderful. The location of the apartment at the bottom of Loch Ness has to be seen to be believed. The view is stunning and pours in through the windows. It's difficult to move from the sumptuous sofas as they are perfectly positioned to 'Loch Watch'. The entire apartment is full of character and the furnishings and attention to detail help to make this a holiday to remember. We would love to return in the Autumn.
We stayed the end of Jan/Feb 2014 for 4 nights, just wished we had booked longer, it makes a pleasant change to arrive on your break and find everything is just like the pictures. We felt at home the minute we arrived. I would fully recommend this stay . The owner's take pride in ensuring your stay will be all that you want. Right down to the find detail in the booklet you receive filled with all you need to know for your stay. This trip will become an annual vacation for us.
Often you hire a holiday let and when you get there it is a bit of a disappointment and doesn't quite match up to how it was described to you... the Boys Dormitory is the opposite - its looks fantastic on the website and it is even better when you get there.
A beautifully furnished apartment - spotlessly clean, warm and cosy with everything you could wish for. The view from the lounge area is absolutely stunning - it was magical sitting in the huge mullioned window area gazing down Loch Ness.
The bed was roomy, soft and comfy and the bathroom fabulous and how lovely to be supplied with bathrobes for your stay.
The Abbey itself has plenty to keep you occupied and I particularly enjoyed swimming everyday in the pool in the converted chapel - again so unique.
Cannot recommend this place enough - I will certainly be booking again
I am lucky enough to have stayed in some of the best hotels in the UK but this apartment ( The Boys Dormitory) and area has captured my heart. My fiancé and I decided we would book 3 nights but we loved it so much that we booked an extra night and if I'm honest that still wasn't enough!! Charles and Pebble were great and made us feel so welcome we are already planning our next visit. The views from our apartment were fabulous and you don't even need to leave if you don't want too but you won't be disappointed if you do.
After a wonderful week in the Boys Dormitory, we took a lot of fantastic memories with us ... and felt, like we had left "home".
What can we say .... it's absoluteley marvelous and we could see, that the owners laid their hearts in this place and put lovely details and furnitures in it. We felt very comfortable and we are sure not to be the first guests, who wished, they could own such a wonderful place.
We totally agree to the positive reviews, and like to point out, the brocure respectively the booklet, given by the owners, which we found very helpful.
To give you a short review of the booklet: We indeed made our way from Fort William to Mallaig with the Jacobite Steam Train, as suggested, and we loved it ... we visisted Dunrobin Castle ... and although we already knew the one or another suggestion, it was nice and helpful to have had such a good compedium, above all the fact, that we found a few things, that we will plan for 2014 ... we are absolutely looking forward ... ;-)
