ighland A artments, n erness Reviewed by Mr & Mrs L Barnes from Bathgate
After a career involving business stays in hotels, retirement offers relaxation in one’s own space at one’s own pace. Highland Apartments by Mansley’s serviced apartments on the banks of the River Ness more than fulfilled our expectations.
The instructions, which we received in advance, ensured an easy check in. The fourth floor superior apartment was easily reached by lift from the private basement car park. On entering, we were struck by the bright, spacious lounge with a view of Inverness Castle. The luxury chocolates were a real treat. The kitchen equipment would easily allow the cooking of a meal, but, since the apartment is right in the heart of the city, many fine restaurants are only a short walk away.
The modern accommodation comprises an open plan lounge, diner and kitchen, spacious entry hall with toilet and one bedroom with king size bed and ensuite shower room. The quality furnishings and artworks complement the style of the apartment.
How nice to enjoy breakfast, including croissants, in the sunshine without having to dress and appear in a hotel dining room. In summer, we might have opted to eat on the balcony but it was just a little too cold.
A short drive took us to the Caledonian Canal for a walk. Loch Ness, Culloden, bike hire, boat trips, and whisky distilleries are all within easy reach. All in all this was a memorable, relaxing break in the Highland capital. Prices from £115 per night
