A pleasant small hotel, with friendly and helpful staff who really make you feel welcome. The bedroom décor is perhaps a little tired. The food is good and a good selection for breakfast. The cooked breakfast was freshly prepared to individual requests - a real bonus! The hotel is well-placed for the centre of Nairn. The beach is a short... More

A small friendly hotel, well placed for the beach or the town. Food and service excellent, lively, friendly atmosphere in the bar obviously favoured by the locals, an indication of how well regarded it is. It would certainly be my choice for a return stay in the area.

Welcoming and friendly staff running a great place! Room (and the stairs/hallways) were all clean, tidy, comfortable and had everything in place to enjoy my stay. A very good bar for a real ale fan and an equally enticing selection of malt whisky's. My dinner here was infinitely better than in some "rosette" winning place the night before! I recommend...

Braeval was a great place to stay and enjoy Nairn. Great food, great bar, great staff, great and clean room. Highly recommend for anyone stay for any amount of time. Nairn is a great port city that is quiet and a great experience in Scotland.
