We spent a wonderful 3 weeks there and were very comfortable. We have been going for years and this was our first experience in the apartment which we enjoyed immensely. Douglas, visitor services manager, Willie maintenance, Liz and all the staff are a great team, providing a welcoming and superb service. Kevin and all his garden team do a magnificent job in the garden, we appreciate all their work. We love our annual holiday there and look forward to going back next year.

Reviewed by Una5.0★Oct 2023 "Great stay, only niggle was we couldn’t use the en suite shower as the tray doesn’t drain fast enough for the water pressure." Other than that, location and staff were very responsive and helpful. Reviewed by Catherine4.7★Oct 2023 "We had a wonderful week (2 adults and a 3 year old) in the House Apartment, having stayed twice previously in the Garden Lodge." We return because we love visiting the garden and wider area, and it was great to stay elsewhere in the grounds for a change. The apartment is well set up, attractive and comfortable, with a friendly welcome from the team and a lovely taster tray of local treats. There is lots of info on the history of the garden, house and region for those interested in that side of things, and also plenty of up to date local info which helped us learn about events and facilities. The garden staff were always really happy to answer any questions or provide suggestions as to what we could do or where we could buy particular things locally. The central location within the grounds was great for garden adventures at all hours, particularly with having a pre-schooler and pregnant woman in the group, and the ability to bring our car to the house out-of-hours for arrival and departure made loading and unloading our luggage really easy. Although the property is on the first floor the shallow and wide stairs were easy to climb. We'll be back soon to stay in one property or the other in the Inverewe NTS Garden - it's now most definitely our family's favourite place to visit! Reviewed by Rebecca5.0★Oct 2023 "Shower in ensuite bedroom tended to overflow onto the floor (we were warned about this up front)." We found the hot water ran out too quickly to allow five people to shower in comfort. Welcome pack was excellent as was Jackie in her tour of the apartment. Clean and comfortable with superb views from all the windows Reviewed by J5.0★Sep 2023 "The property was exceptional: the views of the garden and loch, the quality and comfort of the furniture, the high standard of the kitchen and its numerous appliances and the beautiful finish of the wooden floors." The welcome on our arrival was warm and thorough and we knew we could always ask staff at the shop or cafe for help and advice on walks and local facilities. We loved exploring the gardens and chatting to the gardeners and .we enjoyed the boat trip around the loch. We hope that before too long there will be a charging point for electric cars on site but we had no problems finding charging points nearby. In conclusion, I don’t think there could be a more perfect property. Reviewed by Rosamund5.0★Aug 2023 "Wow, this was an amazing stay." The apartment is in the middle of the gardens but you can unload the car before taking to the designated parking spot. The thoughtfulness of the welcome package was so nice - Inverewe gin and whisky. Entering and leaving the gardens for day trips was easy and all the national trust staff were happy to chat. Boat trip from the garden was great. But having the gardens once all the visitors had gone was magical. Cuddy Rock sunsets, quiet moments in the stunning borders and walks. Thank you so much for the great review. It is a great place to just chill out in the evening by the rocks, watching what ever passes by in the sea. We hope to welcome you back. Property Owner Reviewed by Alison5.0★Aug 2023 "The welcome we received was wonderful, flowers, tea, coffee, fruit, toiletries and even locally made spirits, plus a wonderful tour of the house." The housekeeper had thought of everything. The apartment was stunning, one of the best NT properties that we have stayed in and a beautiful setting. Inverewe gardens are gorgeous. Thank you very much, we are lucky to have such a lovely house in a fabulous garden. Property Owner Reviewed by Janice5.0★Jul 2023 "As we have visited, and stayed at, Inverewe before we were really looking forward to our first stay at the apartment at Inverewe House." It certainly didn’t disappoint. Everything from meeting Jackie at the gates, her tour of the house and her stories of the house and the area set us up for a lovely holiday experience. The apartment itself is lovely. Lots of space and the views are exceptional. The thoughtful welcome pack was much appreciated and the lovely fresh flowers made the place very much like home. It is a very tranquil place. Even although it is in the centre of the gardens you don’t really notice the visitors, and once they are all gone in the evening you have the whole garden to yourselves. Plenty of wildlife around and we were lucky enough see one of the pine martens on several occasions. That really made the holiday perfect for me! Will hopefully be back for another stay soon. Thank you very much for the great comments and we hope to see you soon. Property Owner Reviewed by Pamela5.0★Jul 2023 "This was our second stay at Inverewe and we'll definitely be booking a return visit." We loved staying right in the middle of the beautiful gardens with views over Poolewe and the mountains beyond. We especially enjoyed the fact that once the gardens were closed for the day we were able to wander around and enjoy the peace and beauty of this very special place. The apartment was perfect and we had everything we needed, high quality furnishings and fittings ensured we were very comfortable, lovely sofa's, comfy beds, huge fluffy towels . We appreciated the thought that had gone into the extra little touches including the vases of fresh flowers and the welcome pack. All of the staff we met during our stay were friendly, helpful and very keen to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you very much for the lovely feedback. Property Owner Reviewed by Steven5.0★Jun 2023 "Excellent accommodation and we could not have felt more welcome." We really appreciated the welcome pack that took our individual circumstances into account (travelling by motorcycle with really limited carrying capacity). Big thanks to Jackie and all the staff and volunteers we met. What a great place to stay! Reviewed by Caroline5.0★May 2023 "Absolutely fantastic flat, beautifully renovated and extremely well equipped." The flat was spotless and we really appreciated both the very generous welcome pack and the personal welcome from Jackie. Everything was so thoughtful - from the welly pull to the huge selection of local information. Jackie and Willy could not have been more helpful and really made our stay. The location in the gardens is amazing - it was a very special holiday and we hope to come back! Reviewed by Karen5.0★Apr 2023 "We absolutely loved our week at Inverewe House apartment." A very clean, warm, well appointed, spacious and luxurious apartment, with epic views from every window. We arrived to a warm welcome from the team, including a gorgeous and generous welcome pack. Such a treat to have the gardens to ourselves after visitor closing hours. The Inverewe Gardens and Estate team were so friendly and helpful and clearly very proud of the work they are involved in. We loved every minute of our time in the apartment and the surrounding area. So many epic beaches, mountain walks, swim, bike, kayak, SUP opportunities. We also enjoyed the coffee stops, great food and local museums, including onsite! What a privilege to have the opportunity to spend a week in such a beautiful piece of history. This is a true gem of a holiday location. Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. The apartment came on line in September 2022 and it is great to read that you appreciated the hard work the team at Inverewe put into preparing the apartment. We agree with you it is fantastic to have the gardens to yourselves after closing time.
