62 Academy Street Apartment

Hotels Near Trains - Inverness

Need a quick recommendation? Book this two-bedroom apartment in 62 Academy Street, Inverness, Scotland. It’s 150 meters from the railway station and around 230 meters from the riverside. Guests absolutely love its spaciousness and the abundance of natural light due to its high ceilings and large windows. It has modern conveniences — from the kitchen equipment to the high-pressure shower to the unlimited free WiFi — but the apartment also retains a lot of features that give it character, such as its fireplaces. One guest also particularly appreciated being allowed to check into the apartment very early, coming as they did from a journey on the sleeper train from London, although of course this will depend on whether or not there were guests the previous night. Easy communication with the host is also a plus mentioned by several previous guests.
