4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This is a nice place to stay. Very friendly and accommodating hosts, close - as in walking distance - to the downtown shopping district. Room was clean, but the bed had footboards, so is a little cramped if you're tall. Breakfast was fresh and cooked to order. We had to share a bathroom. One concern, though, but easily fixed: the main exit door is always locked and can only be opened with a key. This strikes me as a pretty serious fire safety risk.

Thank you for your review. We do hope that you enjoyed your stay in Scotland and hope that one day that you will return. On your review we did notice that you were not quite happy with the bed as you stated that it had a footboard which would have been a bit cramped if you were tall. We think that you may have been confused with other accommodation whilst you were on holiday in the UK as all our beds are divans and are all king size. As regards to the front door being locked, all guests are issued with a front door key during there stay. This enables them to go out and return at there own leisure. There is also an emergency key which can be used at any time to open the main door. This is kept in the hallway. There is also fire alarms in every room and hallways. We again thank you for staying at Hay Lodge and do hope that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in the UK.

Stayed for a week in the self catering house which is furnished beautifully. A lovely warm welcome and fantastic location for getting around the area . The pub right opposite was friendly and had good food, the quiz night was fun. For some great days out go to Fort George or over to the Black Isle for some great views of the dolphins , and a visit to deans shortbread factory is a must if only for the wonderful smell when you get out of the car.
Will definitely return and recommend this holiday .

Had a great stay at the hay lodge , immaculate large room. Couldnt have asked nicer hosts than Marion and Terry. After looking at hotels for a one night stay in Nairn we are glad we chose this family run bed and breakfast. Great room great breakfast and great value what more can we say.

Marion & Terry, are two amazing hosts. They go out of their way to help and guide your stay.
We have been here twice now and both our stays were very commendable..
Our first stay was on our way up to John o'groats and our second was on our return. After having 3 full compact days, we were ready for a rest and Hay lodge is home from home. So we were very pleased when we called and asked if they had a vacancy !

Rooms are excellent, clean and fresh. Beds&bedding perfect.
Having stayed here twice we had two different rooms and both are excellent. Breakfasts are of a vast choice and cooked to perfection.
All standards within the property are very high. Free Wifi at all times. If you are heading this way don't miss out!!

Thank you two the both of you for making both our stays perfect.
