Great views from my bedroom overlooking bandstand and beach. Breakfast was excellent. Chose to indulge and enjoy full cooked Scottish. What a treat! Staff were great, very friendly and welcoming. I would certainly return. Great value for money.

The staff were very pleasant and the food was excellent. Very good value for money. We would return to this hotel for another break. We had a sea view room which was very comfortable and kept clean at all times.

Couldn't wish for a better place to stay. Staff are friendly and helpful. Location is great, right on the seafront. Rooms are clean and fresh. Bar and restaurant serve great food. I slept brilliant even missed breakfast a few times due to sleeping in, I mention this as I'm an insomniac.

The prices in this area can vary a lot the Braeval keeps a consistent pricing and a very high standard in food quality and comfort in the bedrooms. The surrounding area has great sea views and walks with plenty to do. This is a great base.

Nice traditional hotel near beach. Really enjoyed the breakfast. Bar is well stocked with malt whiskers. Food in the bar was good. Found Nairn itself very boring but great place for dog walkers. Beach not as good as expected. Inverness is a lovely city and well worth visiting

Nice place; nice atmosphere; great staff but the quality and presentation of the food itself was very average. I have eaten here before off the normal menu and have always had a good experience. It was a shame, because I'd bigged it up beforehand and felt a little let-down. Staff were great though and very friendly.

Our first experience of dining out on Xmas Day and,boy, what a way to start. Although the restaurant was full we sat down (second sitting) on time, ordered wine, and our meal started shortly afterwards. All 5 courses were beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. We had the venison for our main course for a change from turkey and we were...

Our party of six family and friends enjoyed a wonderful meal on Christmas Day (second sitting). Within 10 minutes of sitting down at the table, our starters were on the table in front of us.
