Nice stay and very thoughtful breakfast to go as had to leave at 6am on first day. Breakfast first class on second day with great views from breakfast room. Central location to the town itself. Would certainly stay here again.

I stayed here for a business trip and the room was comfortable, quiet and a handy location close to the sea. Breakfast was fab and the staff were friendly. I thought it was really good value for money.

Stayed here prior to the coast to coast race. Perfect location in Nairn, being close to the beach and town centre. Food from the restaurant was very good and a great selection of whiskeys, if that's your thing.

Was very lucky with the weather but a clean beach to walk along and discover the nature again. Nairn is a good place to stay with a good rail connection to Inverness and onto Loch Ness. Close to Nairn is Cawdor castle with its beautiful gardens and local pub 2km away serving super meals.

We stayed for one night only. The location is fantastic, across the street from the Beach. The room was a bit in the small side, but nice and clean. The food at dinner was really deliciuos and fresh. Breakfast was good ad well. I'll be back if visiting Nairn again.

I stayed at the Braeval in Nairn for two nights on a golfing trip. The room was very clean and well appointed with a comfy bed. The staff were very accommodating and welcoming. The food is excellent, but you must reserve a table due to its popularity and location next to a few guest houses. A fine selection of beers... More
