Beautiful beaches to walk on, with opportunities for spotting wildlife. Golf and other outdoor activities available in local area. Nairn is a very pleasant place to be. There are also interesting historical connections nearby. The hotel is situated in a central, convenient location. It is not noisy at night.

We stayed here on Friday night as we were visiting Nairn for a family wedding. I couldn't fault it at all! The staff were very helpful and friendly, the room was very clean and warm, and the breakfast was delicious! We didn't get a chance to eat or drink in the bar area but it looked great too. Would definitely...

We stopped here on route northwards and were not disappointed. My husband is a real ale fan and that's partly the reason we booked. He was very impressed at the range on offer and the way the ales were kept. We had a lovely spacious room overlooking the sea. Dinner was served either in the lounge/bar area, complete with cosy...

Room with a fantastic view of the beach and over the sea to the mountains beyond, wonderful breakfasts with local produce, nice meal in restaurant and very friendly and helpful staff. The beach and harbour are only a short walk away. Not far to shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs.

Very accomodating & comfortable with bonus of fantastic local craft beers in the bar. I have stayed a number of times and have become a fan of the steak pie too. Warm (not too hot!) rooms. Quiet. Parking easy. Great wifi useful for work.

Amazing location with my room looking out towards the sea. The room was large, well-appointed and very clean. Full breakfast was excellent and local produce was used. Very friendly and helpful staff. The sandy beach is right nearby, very clean and fab for long walks. Great places to eat out nearby. Easy to get to Inverness by train.

We had a great experience. We were fortunate enough to stay in room 7, which had a bay window that allows you to take in the bandstand and see views. Ate in at the Bandstand Restaurant on our first night, food was lovely we both had steak cooked perfectly to our request. Staff were approachable and helpful. Breakfast was also...

Braeval were hosts to a CAMRA weekend with some people overnighting after the meeting on Saturday. The meeting went well with an excellent selection of REAL ALE on the bar, and a great buffet. It is unlikely that Gordon and Morag could have done any more to make us any more welcome. Comfy nights sleep, but woken by some "noisy"...

“Room 3 was a single bed, but all the other guests were more than pleased with their accommodation. "Full Scottish" breakfast may be a bit too much for some, Haggis & Black Pudding, but sets you up for a busy day!”
