Popped in here the other day for our lunch: and very pleasantly surprised at the warmth and quality of service we received. The meal was also tasty and well presented. The portions were also praiseworthy, being neither too much nor too little. Altogether a most pleasing experience; and we will be returning.

Staying overnight at the Braeval Hotel made for a pleasant and restful break at the end of a very busy week. There was a very good selection of unusual beers in the bar and the breakfast was excellent.

Lovely relaxing stay, with good food and amazing views of the sea. Would recommend the room with sea views. Comfortable bed and ensuite facilities. Glad their was not a live band below as the early nights may not have been so enjoyable.

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. The weather has been wonderful in Nairn and the views on a winter morning are stunning! All the dates when we have live music are published on our website and I recommend customers check this in advance of their visit. If noise is a concern, let us know and we can try to allocate...

A cozy hideaway between Elgin and Inverness. Nice room, good food and nice staff make it ideal for a business stopover. A decent bar with a few real ales, I'm assured that there are normally more, on tap helped.

This is a centrally located hotel which is handy for Inverness Airport -- Kim was very helpful at check in -- I was supposed to get a 'grab and go' breakfast which is aimed at those folks who have to check out before breakfast service at 0800 -- I was assured it would be outside my door for my 0615...

I'm disappointed to hear that we slipped up on delivering your "Grab and Go" breakfast pack and do apologise for that. I hope it won't put you off returning again.

I'm really sorry this happened. There was a misunderstanding with the bar person on duty who thought the bar had moved to winter closing hours and was to close at 10pm (should have been 11pm).
