Thanks to all at the Sunny Brae for the exceptional 3 night stay we experienced. John's culinary skills, Ian's wine recommendations, Rachel's whiskey recommendations combined with stunning sea views and a warm and cozy hotel made for a stay we will long remember. The entire staff made our visit seem like we were old friends returning to our country home.

Upon arrival, guests are seated in drinks lounge overlooking the sea. It's a lovely room with plush arm chairs. After a leisurely cocktail, one is lead to the dining room. The service was excellent! The food was locally sourced and very beautifully presented.

Been to this restaurant many times over the years and not had a bad meal once, wines are also very good, good mixture of seafood as well as the norm. Call well in advance as they are usually busy........wonder why ? We are locals and this is probably the best place in town.......

My husband spent two nights a few days ago at this spotlessly clean small family run hotel in Nairn. Ian, John and Rachel are wonderful hosts/hostess and make sure that you are well looked after at all times. John is a creative and talented chef and we enjoyed our meals there tremendously. Rachel runs a very good restaurant and is... More

We spent a very pleasant evening in the hotels restaurant. We really enjoyed sitting in the magnificent sea view conservatory. We really enjoyed the meal, made with local fresh produce and the dessert was delicious. It is expensive but well worth it.
