Bridge Street Apartments
Reviewed 28 September 2013

The photos on this site do not show the best of the apartments. We have had the pleasure of staying on several occasions, each time in a different apartment, all 5 star. No better place to stay in Inverness and great value.
We did try other apartments, don't get me wrong they were nice but nowhere up to the High standard of by the bridge.
Book early to avoid disappointment

Helpful owner Gisella met us and showed us into the apartment. Have stayed in several other apartments in different cities before and as previous author noted, they have all provided basic amenities / breakfast basket, usually consisting of tea/coffee/fresh milk/jams etc. There was some tea and coffee and a couple of other things such as already opened diluting juice and opened balsamic type dressing (no idea when how long these had been opened so not touched). We stayed for 2 night, 8th and 9th March 2013 so were fine with the one set of towels provided but any longer and would need these changed. The main thing lacking was soap in order to wash your hands! Pretty basic I think, liquid soap should be provided for guests use in both the toilet and bathroom, so we had to go buy some. Apartment was clean and tidy, although you usually want to wash the glasses / crockery before using (well I do!). The other niggle was the strange noise during the night.....lasting ALL night......I don't know what it was, sounded like some kind of rattling on the roof and I can only guess it was the seagulls outside. Rather irritating when it goes on all night though. Also agree with other reviewer that the noise of the lift can be heard from the bedroom. Location is great, as is the free secure parking for the car. With a few small adjustments, this could meet even more guests expectations and requirements. Would stay here again and do recommend (but perhaps take ear plugs if going to bed sober!).

Thank you for your review. We always appreciate when guests take the time to write about their experience. It may be necessary to clarify the difference between self-catering and serviced apartments, as there is a fine distinction. Bridge Street apartments are self-catering, best described as ‘home from home’. Once you have checked in we don’t disturb you. We used to provide soap but guests did not seem to expect it, and in any case they preferred their own toiletries and left ours untouched. However, I take your point, in future we will start again providing liquid soap, just in case.
Most of our guests are happy to cater for themselves. If you have special requirements, please let us know beforehand. We are happy to change towels or clean the apartment for a small surcharge.
The noise on the roof – I can’t explain, as I don’t hear it during the day. One night, however, I saw an eagle owl sitting on the balcony, whew! what an experience!!!

I have been debating whether to write about 401 but here it goes,the apartment is right on the high street and very convenient. Having have staid in most apartments (Bridge street,highland apartments) all owned by different people,i would say 401 is the least attractive apartment of all of them. The apartment in itself is ok except few things, its on fourth floor and the bedroom is adjusted to the elevator,so come morning or a busy Fri/Sat night the noise of the elevator coming up and down kept us awake or woke us up every morning.

All apartments usually have a coffee tea or sugar,this one had none of them,we bought some take away and forgot to buy salt,usually most apartments have abit of salt but not this one. Staying a week we did our washing but there was no hanging rail,theres only a small 1 pound shop peg thing that cant be used. We had to hang our cloths on the doors and dinning room chairs.

We were also very disappointed about the TV, theres a small 12/14 inch tv that hardly has any charnels,and theres also a warning of using internet,says clearly that you cant watch anything online via wifi or else you will incur an extra £50 on top of your stay. We have never come across this anywhere but lucky we dint need the internet that much.

Bathroom needs a good clean, on the tap areas and the bottom of the shower bath door is very very dirty.

This apartment is nice only needs few things changed to be at least close to comfort compared to the other once in the same block.

Room Tip: Best apartments in this block are, 310,306,307,404, we have staid in this once and were never disapp...

I am very sorry that you found some points not to your satisfaction. In future, it would be helpful to us when you make us aware of your concerns during your stay, so that we can do someething about it to make your stay more comfortable.
By the way, the washing machine is washer/dryer, so there was no need dry your clothes on hooks and chairs.
You stayed in apartment 401 last September, now it is February and I will keep an eye on those things you pointed out, so that it will not happen again.
Thank you for your helpful comments.

Me and a few friends stayed at the apartment for the weekend. We were very impressed with the appartment, the rooms were spacious and clean and the view, although somewhat restricted when on the balcony, was still beautiful. The price was good considering we would have probably spent more on two hotel rooms for the weekend and we really couldn't have asked for a better location. It catered for all our needs, couldn't really top this appartment. Would definitely go back given the chance and would recommend to all.

We stayed for 3 days and it worked really well. There were all the things in the apartment that we needed and the facilities are really nice. Wi-Fi worked very well. Please be aware that you can not see the river very well, but the view is ok and the terrasse was nice to sit on in the evening.
Bed very nice and bathroom really good. Parking was great and it was easy to go around in Inverness. Pipe music is played live around 7pm by the "castle". I can truly recommend this place.

Stayed at apartment no.405 in June,2012. Nicely furnished with all the modern amenities, very comfortable 'Home Away From Home!' . The best part is the location. Right in the heart of the city yet very quiet. Definately would want to visit again.

Room Tip: Get a river view room.
