Nice small hotel in front of the seashore. Easy parking on the street in front of the hotel. Rooms are small and comfort is average but the location is good. Very good bar (100 different whiskies) and restaurant with seaview.

Very clean room,great breakfast,good food available in the bar and restaurant.The bar in my opinion is first class with a great selection of beers and malt whiskies.Good value for your money.All the staff very good.

We enjoyed our stay at Braeval. The hotel has a very good pub with a small menu, but with great food. The staff is very helpful, especially the friendly hotel owner who is also a very good source of information on the local whisky routes.

I'm really disappointed that you didn't like your room. It was refurbished three weeks prior to your stay. We installed new double glazing, new curtains, new décor throughout, new mattress, new bedding, extended and wet walled the en suite and installed all new fittings. When you reported your shower head holder broken at breakfast, we replaced it within 30 minutes... More
