The location of the hotel is very good, with open views of the inner Moray Firth. The food in the restaurant is also very good, and breakfast is more than adequate with lots of variety. The bar is well stocked with many different beers/ales and a very good selection of Malts. The only fault I would mention is the lack... More

Upon booking for 5 nights I enquired as to room only being an option, we're not breakfast people, unfortunately this is not available so you pay for breakfast either way, you are offered a take away pack along the lines of a cereal bar, carton of juice etc this wasn't...

Accommodation part of busy bar and restaurant . Excellent views and comfortable room overlooking cricket green and Moray Firth. Breakfast ok but lacked variety especially for continental breakfast. Towels need replenishment

We were really impressed with the Braeval Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food and service was excellent. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable, clean and quiet. The view of the sea was breathtaking and the beach was only 5 minutes walk away. We definitely intend to stay at the Braeval Hotel again.

Great. Welcomes English people.despite the adverse press reports and various political leaders remarks and the manner in which she rants, we were made very welcome. We worry about possible hidden poverty in Nairnshire.

Had a stay over in nairn and had booked online. When I arrived was met with a smile and friendly service. The rm was perfect size and very clean. The food was fantastic both dinner and breakfast. The view was to die for over the sea looking at the mountains in the distance. Would definitely recommend it and stay here... More

It was a very pleasant change to have a member of staff to show you directly to your room and highlight the facilities within the hotel, unlike the larger hotels where it is rhymed off at the reception desk then a finger pointed in the direction of your room. Staff remembering your name and ensuring everything from your table and... More
