Last weekend at Nairn on the Moray Firth in the north of Scotland provided the complete range of Scottish weather. We drove along the coast from Inverness on Saturday in bright sunshine to arrive in Nairn in a sea haar! Sunday was a brilliant warm summers day with people queuing up for ice creams and families having BBQ's on the... More

Stayed for a night away with a friend. Wanted somewhere that had a pool and good restaurant, this had both. Hotel was lovely, staff very friendly. Rooms were large and very comfortable just a bit too warm but opening the windows solved that. Some of the room furniture showing signs of wear but that did not detract from our overall... More

Just back from a two night stay at this hotel. Have looked at other peoples reviews, which are mixed to say the least. We had booked bed and breakfast only. Our check in was quick and friendly. Our room was very large with a super king size bed. There was also a small side room attached with bunk beds for... More

I've gave this hotel 4* because the food was nice and the service was fantastic, the staff here couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. I took my mum here for a spa day for her birthday. We got lovely robes slippers etc and a fantastic massage from Melanie couldn't fault it. The poolside sauna and steam room were nice... More

My wife and I have been going there for about 30 years and have seen changes in the management over that time but after our last trip that's it, I would not give them the money for what we got.

We used to go to this hotel regularly and were always pleased with the service and staff. The situation is it's best feature, just down a path and straight onto the prom for a nice walk along the seaside. A few years ago we started complaining about the high proportion of fish on the menu, sometimes difficult to find a... More

Having booked my stay and then subsequently reading Waldo54's review, I must confess I travelled to my destination with some trepidation. I was even more worried when we presented ourselves at reception and the older receptionist curtly told us we were too early to book in. Her delivery could have been more polished, especially as she is the first point... More

This is a pricey hotel (in my opinion), situated right by the seafront in Nairn. Although the hotel website boasts of having 1 x AA rosette for their Fairways Restaurant, the staff knew nothing about this. We tried to make a Fairways reservation but we were told, that, as we were on a B&B rate, we should eat in the... More

My wife and I have always loved going to Nairn. It is a beautiful, peaceful town on the Moray Firth with superb views across to the Black Isle.

Booked this hotel for a short break, not realising it was part of the Crerar Group, previously stayed in two Crerar hotels, which were looking a bit tired. However the same cannot be said of the Golf View. An old building in which the decor and furnishings have been well kept. Excellent service and dinner was superb. An beautiful view... More
