Boath House manages to be elegant, classy and homely - and it does it well. Think fussy maiden aunt with taste, standards and an eye for collectables and you are not far from what you will get. Walking canes and umbrellas in the entrance hall, unusual art, family photos in the drawing room, comfy sofas and chairs and this in... More

We stayed for two nights at the Boath House on a dinner bed and breakfast Tariff. I have submitted a separate review in relation to the accommodation. As befits a restaurant with a Michelin star, the food was fantastic. Fresh local produce is used in an innovative way so even traditional dishes, such as porridge, turn out to be exceptional....

3 of us went for lunch, expecting to be disappointed but it was absolutely perfect. You really don't get a Michelin star for nothing. Everything was absolutely spot on. We loved it. Go! Support this wonderful place.

Our family of five stayed at the Boath House on our vacation and it lived up to all the positive reviews. The location is quiet, beautiful and in the country. The building is stately with well appointed rooms and the character of yesteryear well maintained. The staff are extremely attentive and helpful with any requests. The meals as you would... More

Beautifully decorated, five star food and very good staff make a stay at the Boathouse House a wonderful experience. Rooms are extremely comfortable with large bathrooms and coffee and tea making facilities. Dinner is either 3 or 6 course menu. Our meal was outstanding. There are several lovely rooms to relax in or enjoy a drink before dinner.

This luxury boutique hotel near Nairn is the prefect place for a birthday or anniversary treat. It is a small, friendly, family run hotel with luxurious rooms, excellent restaurant and set in beautiful gardens. You are treated like guests and not paying customers, They couldn't do enough for us and we really felt special. I would highly recommend this place... More

We visited for lunch last week. We'd never been before, but had read good reviews so decided to give it a try. It's a lovely place, with a nice old fashioned feel to it. Service was excellent - sherries (a good choice, which is unusual) in a wee lounge while looking at the wine list and menu. Very good selection... More

This hotel is a gem. It has a fabulous restaurant, where we had one of our best ever meals - food was just fantastic. Our room was the garden cottage which is a few steps from the main building and has a sitting room, good size bedroom, bathroom and shower room. It is shaded by mature trees but opens out... More

We were treated to a superb lunch, fantastic service and a wonderful location. If you appreciate great food and personalised service this is the place for you. The chef Charlie pays attention to detail and the presentation as well as taste will take your breathe away. We then had a wonderful walk around the superb grounds and spent some time... More
