Self-Catering Apartment in the city centre

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 11, 2009

--> There are 2 accomodation options in Inverness called "Trafford Bank":

One is a luxury Bed & Breakfast located at 96 Fairfield Road;
The other is a self-catering 1-bedroom apartment (Huntly Street) by the River Ness.

Both are owned & operated by interior designer Lorraine Freel.

We stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks in July 2009 (for our wedding) and absolutely loved it! You could hardly ask for a more central location - right down by the River Ness and yet it was quiet and peaceful. Lorraine met us upon our arrival and was very friendly and helpful. There are also plenty of brochures and leaflets for tourists sights and things to do in the area, as well as discount vouchers for meals in some nearby restaurants!

Spotlessly clean, comfortable and cosy, we felt right at home straight away. The apartment consists of a double bedroom, a small bathroom with shower, a spacious living/dining area and a small but well-equiped kitchen.
The entrance to the aparment has a romantic touch: a winding red metal staircase up to the 1st floor, adorned with climbing roses in a small but inviting garden. Downstairs there is also a garden shed in which the washing machine/dryer is located. The neighbours in this terraced residence were friendly but generally kept to themselves.

Unique Quality: > Comes with a Huntly Street parking permit.
> Communal garden.
> Tesco's Supermarket right next door (50m distance).

From the Trafford Bank apartment you can walk to the main Ness Bridge (2min), Inverness Castle and the High Street / pedestrian precinct (7min). The small Tesco's near the apartment is great for stocking-up on fresh produce, toiletries, etc.

The only slight negative point I have to mention is that - due to being on the 1st floor right under the roof and south-facing - on a warmer-than-average summer's day the apartment heats up quite substantially even when opening all windows. Thankfully, there is a small fan which we used for 2 or 3 nights in the bedroom to keep a bit cool.
We loved our time in the Trafford Bank Self-Catering Apartment and we would definitely stay here again!

Directions: On Huntly St., stand in front of "The Kitchen" restaurant with the River Ness behind you. Walk down the small footpath on the RIGHT side of the restaurant. Here it is!
