  • "This is a nice enough flat, but as per previous reviews, the communal close is not in the least inviting and there are so many snags it is very frustrating."

    When I arrived the wifi and TV weren’t working and on reading the visitor book plus online reviews, this has been an issue that guests have reported before, so I thought I would phone the owner too. A previous guest stated that she seemed “baffled” but I think they were being polite. She also said no one had complained about the TV before, sorry but the proof is in black and white. She also asked me what I expected her to do about it because she “lives two hours away”. And finally ended by telling me to get out. When I spoke to someone from Sykes, they said an engineer was meant to have been out last week to install a new ariel, more proof this issue was known about, and would organise it again while I was there. Needless to say I waited in on the afternoon they were due and no one turned up. I am working in Inverness and chose to stay in an apartment rather than a hotel due to coronavirus. When working away from home and paying for accommodation, I think it needs to be better than home or at least just as good and there are a few things you need, especially if it is advertised as available. • wifi/internet • facilities to relax after a hard day • cooking facilities • washing facilities This apartment failed on the first two immediately. On the third, there are no sharp knives to be able to prepare food, there are no oven gloves to be able to remove said food from oven and if you are under 5.5 feet, don’t expect to reach the top shelf of the fridge. On the fourth point, there is a washing machine but no clothes horse. You could use the hangers in the wardrobe but they are covered in a black velour fabric and therefore it is likely the dye will seep into wet clothes. Then there are the small points which make life easier. No soap in the bathroom – I always carry a small bar of soap but this is the first time I have ever had to use it. A toilet roll holder on the wall and a shelf in the bathroom & shower would be handy. In fact, shelves fitted in the kitchen cupboards would be useful rather than having them lying on the bottom. A side table for my glass of wine when finally being able to relax – I had to use the kitchen bin. Ambient lighting rather feeling like I was either left in the dark or being interrogated but I found a lamp in the wardrobe so made use of that. There are no chains on the bottom of the vertical blinds which laziness. BTW I corrected the cabling to the TV and left an ethernet cable for the wifi so no one else should have the same problems. If coming to Inverness, I would recommend the lovely Glen Mhor Hotel on the banks of the River Ness and it is cheaper than this.

  • "When we arrived the flat had not been cleaned or the towels and bedclothes changed."

    After waiting on the 'phone to Sykes for over an an hour I was told that the housekeeper would be there in half an hour. He was - and very efficient too, if only he'd done it earlier. The flat is well designed and excellently located overlooking fields adjoining the generous car park, with plenty of paths and walks. Ideal if you have a dog. Only ten minutes drive from Inverness and the Culloden battlefiedl.

  • "Superb studio apartment all brand new and with every appliance you would need."

    V quiet residential area and great location for sightseeing around the Highlands. The shared access is a little scruffy but ignore that - the neighbours were v friendly and obvs live there permanently. Only thing was the TV was internet based and only BBC iPlayer was available and despite trying to assist, the owner was a bit baffled by it. I didn’t spoil anything but other people may need full service. Adam at Sykes was v v helpful and followed up on our query regarding the TV issue. We had a great week and we’d only booked it the day before we arrived.

About the location

CULLODEN

Inverness 3.9 miles; Cawdor 10.7 miles; Nairn 13 miles

Three miles east of Inverness is the village of Culloden in Scotland, famed for being the site of the Battlefield of Culloden, the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745 on Culloden Moor. Today the National Trust for Scotland has a visitor centre which is a popular tourist attraction, which hosts an interactive battle experience with an immersion film battle room. The village was originally made up of estate houses surrounding the Culloden House, but is now home to several holiday homes. Located in Culloden Woods is ‘Clootie Well’ where brightly coloured rags are hung as offerings from those wishing to be cured of ailments. The Cairns of Clava are also close by; a group of Bronze Age burial mounds.
