We had a family gathering at Sunny Brae because we had heard excellent reviews about it, and we were absolutely not disappointed. Every course we had was excellent and full of character, a nice refreshing change. The staff were naturally friendly, extremely polite and interested in the guests without being overbearing. They listened to all our queries attentively and did... More

Dinner one night and we're back for the second. The food is incredibly good and the hospitality is topnotch. Our fave restaurant in all of Scotland. You must try the cullen skink smoked haddock soup; a weird name for something that resembles nectar of the gods. Had the sea bass one night and sea trout the next. Both were excellent.... More

Stayed here recently for 5 nights and delighted with everything. John and Rachel very welcoming and helpful as are all the staff and the rooms are extremely clean and comfortable.

This is a smashing small family run hotel. Very warm people. Near rooms with lovely touches. An excellent position overlooking the water. And magnificent, magnificent food that stands comparison to any swanky restaurant anywhere in the world. It's that good.

We recently spent two nights at the Sunny Brae, and it was a wonderful experience. This is a family-owned hotel, and we felt like we were part of the family as well. We had an ocean-view room -- very bright and airy. It was probably the cleanest hotel room I have ever seen. There also is a screened-in porch for... More

I had a very enjoyable stay at this small hotel which overlooks a green and the sea and beach beyond. The room and bed were comfortable and the hotel was very clean and well run.

I am not sure why this hotel does not get a 5 star rating because during our 2 day stay everything was perfect. I can only think it may be because it does not have a lift. We had a double sea view room (upstairs room 6) and my mother was in room 1 on the ground floor also with... More

Sunny Brae wasn't our original destination but as our Inverness accommodation fell through the Inverness visitor centre were kind enough to spend time finding us alternative rooms. Apologising that Nairn was further out, they booked it for us and it had to have been one of the highlights of our Scotland road trip. Just driving along the front road of... More
