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.

Lovely location, on the coast in Nairn! Nice breakfast and restaurant! Recommend the Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert! It was the best in Scotland! We tried it all over the country after having it at Braeval. Hotel was older and a little outdated. Mainly needed horrible carpet replaced! But for the price and the beautiful location, we surely got our...

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.

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...

All staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very tasty. Evening meals had a good choice on offer. Good value. Bed was very comfortable and rooms were very clean. Great view to the bandstand and sea. Lovely sunsets. Nairn has a challenging golf course nearby. The Theatre has a lovely ceramic collage on the corner of the street. Fascinating!

“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!”
