I stayed here for one night on two separate occasions. I towed my motorcycle up from Yorkshire, left the car at the hotel and rode the NC500 returning a week later to stay once again and collect my car. The hotel staff were great, very friendly and helpful. The room was fine, had everything I needed and was quiet, clean...

Very enjoyable stay for 2 nights. Good choice of real ales and excellent selection of whiskies. Comfortable room. I wasn't very impressed with the evening meal I had but breakfast was good. The hotel is situated near the centre of town, with a lovely view from the dining area.

Everything about this hotel was superb. The room, bed was so comfortable and the view stunning. Breakfast and meals were to the highest standard. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Good choice of beers and real ale as well as the huge whisky choice. Parking was a little issue but certainly not enough to put anyone off.

Thank you for your kind comments. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. Your are correct about our rooms. They do vary in size - some spacious, some small (priced accordingly). We try to ensure that they are always clean and comfortable. But a stay at the Braeval is all about the pub and restaurant - good food, good beer, great...

This hotel serves great food- dinner and breakfast were excellent and has won many awards for their beer. It is ideal for anyone who does not require parking as it is extremely limited. It is comfortable enough for 1 night. The shower in our room was in need of attention as it was a bit grubby. Not sure if they...

Thank you for your feedback. We are continually working on maintaining and improving facilities at the hotel. We don't have private parking, but on street parking is free everywhere in Nairn. There is a large open air car park at the rear of the hotel which takes around 100 cars and is also free.

Lovely friendly hotel when we stayed there. Lunch and breakfast were excellent and room very well equipped. We had a lovely big room overlooking the park and beach which was very calming. Car parking was fine, if you couldn't get beside the hotel there is ample parking around.

Stayed here for one night on business in June 2016.

“Room 3 was a single bed, but all the other guests were more than pleased with their accommodation. "Full Scottish" breakfast may be a bit too much for some, Haggis & Black Pudding, but sets you up for a busy day!”
