Travelling with 6 other family members (no teens) we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights here. The Pub was warm with a roaring fire, an Honesty Bar! with comfortable seating. The rooms were clean, spacious and the bathroom had been updated to include a corner shower without walls. The furnishings in the rooms were 'traditional style' that suited the Hotel but were a bit dated. Adding to the charm, was the lovely Breakfast room with a great selection of breakfast items prepared by Chef David and served by team members, including Ryan (owner). Easy walk to some local restaurants for dinner / or pizza delivery to enjoy around the fire in the Pub. We wished we'd be staying longer.. Enjoyable hospitality for sure!!

Now called the Invernairne Guest House, this small hotel overlooks the North Sea. Some rooms have a sea view. The breakfast room has large windows overlooking the sea, as does the incredibly lovely bar and lounge. The bar is on the honor system - you help yourself and record what you had. It shows up on your bill as you leave. The bar is cozy and rich, with a real fire and leather chairs. The is also a lower-level room called The Bunker which is spacious and has a full kitchen.; It does not have a view, but it is a great room to spread out. Many golfers use this hotel as there are numerous golf courses nearby. It is also in the area of the Scottish Whiskey Trail.

We really enjoyed staying at this appealing guest house. It is conscientiously run by Camilla & Ryan, things couldn't be nicer. Our room, Black Isle had a wonderful sea view. The (honor) bar is a comfortable room with a terrific view. The breakfast offerings were delicious. We had a friendly welcome and our host called booked us a table for dinner at The Bandstand Restaurant which is a pleasant ten minute walk away along the water. For the quality of our stay, we'd call The Invernairne a bargain. Nairn is an attractive place and there is plenty to explore nearby. This was the final destination of our vacation. This place is an easy 20 minutes from the airport. We'll always plan to stay here when we fly in our out of Inverness Airport. We'd highly recommend The Invernairne!

It was our pleasure to welcome you to The Invernairne and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us, your kind words are very much appreciated. We are lucky enough to have a wonderful location overlooking the sea, which, if you use our private path in the garden, is less than a minute away, and as you discovered, there are several good restaurants and bars serving food within easy walking distance, and what a lovely walk it is, too. We've never been called "a bargain" before, so thank you. We would love to welcome you both back when you are next in the area. Kind regards The Invernairne Team

On arrival we had the best welcome from a very lovely lady who showed us around the areas of the hotel we needed to know. Lovely lounge area with honesty bar. Room was clean, fresh and lovely decor. Ideal location for access to the beach with a lovely walk. Breakfast could have been better but it was a lovely atmosphere in the breakfast dining area.

Clean, convenient, reasonably priced. All we needed! Plus a great bar and really good breakfast. Nice views out the back. We got in somewhat late and left right after breakfast for golf, so I’m not even sure of everything the hotel offers. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This was the first Hotel we stayed at for 2 nights on a 10 day trip touring Scotland. We had probably the best room in the hotel with an awesome view from the 1st floor bedroom over the Moray Firth. The Hotel has its own private path direct to the beach promenade below, and whilst you will encounter better beaches, this was perfect for a morning walk before breakfast, and for those brave enough, suitable for swimming. This is family run, and has some nice touches like a putting green, honesty bar, and all you can eat hot scottish buffet breakfast, which is a good standard without offering too many frills, the cereals were a bit limited, but more than made up for by the hot breakfast. The Lounge bar is a wonderful room, that we should have made more use of, and feels like something from a much more expensive Country Hotel. The honesty bar works well. Our only criticisms are the ensuite bathroom. In this day and age its a necessity/essential to have a heated towel radiator, as otherwise you have to deal with damp towels in the morning, and the toilet and bathroom door were a bit low spec for this end of the market. However the owners were more than accomodating with any requests we had, and we would give this a solid 7.5 out of 10.

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted you enjoyed your time with us at The Invernairne. Unfortunately we have been having supply issues with our breakfast cereal offering which we hope will be resolved soon. Thank you for the comments regarding the en-suite. We shall look into this in our programme of projects over the winter period when we are closed. We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back some day. Kind regards The Invernairne Team

In my review of The Invernairne in 2018 I started by asking “Is it possible to have an experience that exceeds perfect?” My answer then and again now in 2022 is a resounding yes!!! Recently retired from a career involving operational excellence and continuous improvements The Invernairne embodies so much of what is sought in these fields. Their excellent facility and amenities are surpassed only by their genuine warmth, hospitality and graciousness. A new addition to the team, Michelle, is a wonderful hostess always available to offer suggestions for venues in the area or to just have a warm, friendly chat about a range of topics. I can think of no better place to base your adventures in this part of Scotland.

Well what can we say? It is always a particular delight to welcome returning guests, especially ones with such fond memories of their previous visit. We are blown away by your very kind words. It has for us, as many in hospitality, been a pretty tough two years, but it is comments like yours that remind us why we do it, and all our efforts are worthwhile. We are blessed to have a great team, with a wealth of knowledge and experience, delivering the Invernairne's unique peace of magic. We are so pleased you enjoyed your time with us and can't wait to welcome you both back again soon. Hopefully it won't be another four years before we see you again! Kind regards The Invernairne Team

We have never encountered such warm, welcoming and helpful hoteliers. Everyone was quick and happy to offer suggestions for dining, touring and which roads to take. This information was invaluable to our visit. The location and grounds are beautiful. We slept with the window open and listened to the waves hitting the shore. Housekeeping did a very nice job, as did the kitchen staff with breakfast.
