“Right on the bay, awesome views from 2nd floor, a great place to stay - if you have a car!”
Reviewed 2 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Dolphin Bay Suites are a newly decorated, comfortable self-catering apartments in Aredesar - a beautiful (tiny) little town on the bay.

By the time we booked our suite, there were only apartments available on the first floor, which means you have no view of the sea. It was beautiful anyways to sit and watch the lights flickering over the Bay and walk along it during the day but get an upper story apartment if you can.

The suite was light and airy, nicer even than the photograph, there was a good self-starter kit and anything you may need in the one grocery two minutes away.

Our party arrived at one and Sally was extremely nice and friendly got our room ready for us within 15 minutes of arrival!

The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, the blowdrier actually worked but the beds could really use a tempur-pedic foam covering - you can feel the bones right through.

Location: To reach any of the sights close by (aside from Fort George, which is in walking distance) you will need to catch a bus into Inverness - the city center - and from Inverness catch another bus to Loch Ness or Avoch etc. These bus rides, particularly the one to Loch Ness can be over 45 minutes and you have to make sure you check the schedules so as not to miss the bus once you get to Inverness (or miss whatever you scheduled to do once in Loch Ness etc.) The bus stop is literally one minute away but buses run only once an hour - so be ready to tightly schedule your goings and comings. Of course, this is only if you plan to see the Highlands by bus.

If, like us, one of the reasons you choose this property is the 'bikes' be sure to ask in advance if there are bikes available for the number you need in your party as when we arrived one of the bike's chain was too rusted to ride, another's seat was way high and couldn't be properly adjusted and the third had a 'rocking seat' that kept hitting the rider uncomfortably and ended in a position that made it impossible to ride and the brakes didn't work on the fourth. (Also, the hotel does not provide helmets, which you need if you want to ride on the main roads!) Paul was very kind and tried to repair them for us during our stay, but unfortunately they needed professional attention.

All in all, though, it was a beautiful stay, but would have been greatly improved by working bikes, awareness of location vis-a-vis 'local' sights and better beds.
