Genuine long established family owned and run highly rated small hotel .A traditional full service restaurant overlooking the dolphins in the Moray Firth at Nairn. Sort of semi-formal, plate service rather than silver service, but good locally sourced freshly cooked food and a good wine list explained by an interested and knowledgeable Proprietor with the guarantee "I put this wine...

We've been with a group of 5 and didn't had a reservation on a Wednesday. We had a lovely evening with very good food (venison, lamb, fish) and very friendly staff. Service is first class and prices aren't too high for what you get. The ocean view outside and from the lounge is beautiful.

We were lucky enough to stay at this lovely hotel. We had a lovely room with a view of the bay. The dinner we had there was wonderful and the breakfasts were lovely as well.

Places like this make Tripadvisor and hopefully Tripadvisor makes places this this thrive. We went here because it was the top listed Restaurant in Nairn and now we know why ! The service was extremely friendly and very attentive. The food was excellent - a little old fashioned maybe but in a good way ! The dining room was filled... More

This place may not have a grand Victorian front to lure you in, but it's proprietors, service and amazing food will keep you going back. My parents have stayed here on a few occasions and love it, they are spoiled rotten. We are never disappointed when we go for dinner, the only problem is, we don't live in Nairn, otherwise... More

This is a great little family run hotel overlooking the sea at Nairn. John and Rachel, the new owners have changed the menus to give a la carte rather than set menus and this gives more flexibility. The menus are interesting and the food is really delicious and good value too! Book to make sure you won't be disappointed! Telephone... More

In B&B nearby (Glebe End - highly recommended!). Ate here just the once. Superb food. Interesting menu. Not overpriced. Cooked to perfection. Lovely dining room. Staff unfailingly pleasant. Just a totally lovely experience. Top marks.

Excellent food-the best restaurant in Nairn. The Bochel family have made this a place where one must go either to stay or just to eat. It is also in a wonderful location.
