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. Loch Ness, Cawdor Castle, Culloden, Elgin, Inverness... and so much more... all within driving distance. Paul and Sally, the owners of Dolphin Bay Suites, are terrific hosts, couldn't be more friendly and helpful. They're delightful people. The town of Ardersier is...

We (two sisters) just returned from this beautiful area. We found this accommodation on Trip Advisor - it was very warm and cosy and everything you could wish for. The owners were kind, welcoming and very helpful. Great location as 5 mins from Inverness airport and looking towards the Black Isle and next to Fort George. We have already recommended...

Just spent a wonderful week here with my disabled client and was met on our arrival by Paul the owner who could not be more helpful and asked us to give him a call at any time if we had any problems or questions. Self catering flats are well equipped with washer dryer, dishwasher, free wi fi, tv, DVD player...

First, Ardesier is a sweet, quiet little village. There are two small grocery stores. But for better selection, head to Nairn and go to the Coop grocery store. (It's maybe 10 mins drive). Paul is so nice and helpful!! He was very friendly and quick to respond via email. He met us on arrival and was very helpful and knowledgable...

My apologies for such a delayed review - but this place is fantastic - it's 1,000 time better than it even looks in the photos. Paul and Sally are incredible - and you get to stay in a slice of history - not that history isn't all around you in Scotland. My cousins who live in CarrBridge visited and couldn't...

A bit of a delayed review here - me and my SO were looking for a place to spend NY break and chose Dolphin Bay Suites. I must say - we didn't expect our getaway to be any better. Lovely surroundings, a cosy spotless apartment and a charming owner who made us feel very welcome. 100% would come back.

Paul makes you welcome from the moment you arrive until you have to leave (all to soon) & we found the same warm Scottish welcome in the local area too. Bearing in mind this was toward the end of January we found more than enough to keep us occupied (the winter waders & wildfowl directly in front of the apartments...

I would like to say this place is a bit of a hidden gem but, the excellent reviews on here, goes to show these apartments are gaining in popularity all the time...and deservedly so. Immaculately presented apartments, impeccable service from the owners Sally and Paul, and very impressive views from the balcony. Directly next to the tidal beach (teeming with...

Stayed on the top floor. The view alone was worth the price. The owner Paul was very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. I have never had such a charming experience. i would and probably will stay there again. Wonderful.
