The hotel is comfortable and clean, relatively quiet (although I would suggest ear plugs on a "Live music" night). We stayed as a family, in a mini-suite comprised of Rooms 9 and 10 and would definitely stay again if we are in the area. The bar was well stocked with local ales and a massive variety of whiskeys. We had... More

I have stayed at this hotel three times now on my way home from working offshore. The food, room and staff have been excellent everytime I stayed there. Very handy for the town and airport links. I wouldn't go anywhere else when staying in Nairn.

Catering for special dietary is important to us. Our head chef is coeliac, I eat mainly vegetarian food and so together we work to design menus with a great choice of varied, tasty dishes for all types of diet. I'm pleased you enjoyed the food. Thank you. More

Comfortable room. Good wifi. Excellent cask ales. Very early bar closure because town was in hibernation. Good grab and go breakfast available for early leavers. Dinner food not bad...I had Ardgay game casserole with a good portion but rather too much watery gravy. Overall, a comfortable stay at a very cheap rate with a LateRooms booking. I would go back.

My wife and I stayed here on Saturday 19th of November. We really enjoyed our stay at this cosy wee place and full marks to the lovely staff. Food was nice and our room (4) was nice and warm. Smashing breakfast too. Will definitely be back! 😊

We had booked Sunday lunch here as they advertised a Carvery on Sunday and on the website it said the restaurant had been voted a finalasit in the Scottish Hospitality Awards, after our experience today I find that hard to believe. The menu offered a two course Sunday lunch, a starter and the carvery. We all chose the soup which... More

Excellent staff, fantastic food, amazing selection of real ales and whiskies. Room was adequate and clean. There was only limited on-street parking but we found a space every night. Would definitely recommend!!!

Unfortunately I have to express my disappointment about a poor experience at this hotel. The one positive I can give the hotel is that the staff working in the hotel were very good and attentive.

On check out, you complained you were cold on the first night of your stay (but comfortable on the second night). I apologised and refunded £40 (which I believe is a reasonable deduction). You (all) seemed to believe you should have stayed for free and responded in quite an aggressive, argumentative manner (which surprised me given that your complaint was... More

Well positioned in lovely Nairn, though parking not easy. Friendly staff and delicious food. Simple rooms, clean and small. "Old fashioned" feel. Comfortable bed though prefer wider than 4'6"! Short walk to lovely beach.

Thank you for your comments. Parking is free on street parking but can be busy at meal times (as our restaurant is very popular) but there is also a free open air car park at rear of hotel which takes about 100 cars (normally empty). More

Room was spacious for a single room, bed comfortable, shower pressure could of been better but that was a minor point. Cleanliness was good, bar was good, never had food day time so can't comment. Breakfast ok prefer buffet style breakfasts. Overall would stay again if in Nairn.
