We are normally reluctant to wholeheartedly recommend anywhere as people's opinions vary so much, but we really can't imagine anyone not loving the Sunny Brae in Nairn.
The position of the hotel is excellent with wonderful views. It was very clean and comfortable. The food was absolutely outstanding. There was a huge choice for breakfast and a selection of vegetarian choices (not just one) for dinner. The owners couldn't do more to make our stay perfect. Every little extra that you could require was provided - luxury toiletries, huge fluffy towels, bathrobes, water and fruit in the room (we chose a superior room so don't know if that is the case in all rooms), six different teas/coffees/hot chocolate on the tea tray, free Wi-fi which never failed, tv with lots of channels. With all these extras we felt it was excellent value.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a fabulous view of the Moray Firth

This small family-run hotel in the charming town of Nairn was a delightful surprise. It looks out over the Moray Firth and is very convenient to Inverness and the Loch Ness area. The meals were delicious and the service was impeccable. The rooms were spacious and bright. We enjoyed every moment of our stay.

This was our second visit to the Sunny Brae, having spent 3 nights there last July and knew we would not be disappointed. The accommodation is comfortable, spotlessly clean and with excellent views from the rooms at the front of the house. ian, Sylvia and their family and staff are welcoming, knowledgeable and very professional. The food is freshly prepared, locally sourced and truly delicious. We knew from our last visit that the the wine list was first class and includes an excellent range of wines from Germany but what we didn't know until this visit is that Ian also has a superb collection of single malt whiskies. We manages to try a different one one every night of our stay! This is an excellent little hotel and we would thoroughly reccomend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view food, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed at the Sunny Brae for three nights, as a base from which to explore the Highlands.
The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The view from the Master Seaview Bedroom was superb.

This family run hotel is far exceeds expectations, Ian, his family and staff were all very friendly and yet completely professional. Service in the restaurant is first class, but the shinning glory is the food. Superbly tasty, extremely well presented with lots of daily menu changes.

We would highly recommend the Sunny Brae and hope to visit again in the future.

and we returned 4 times, always for 3 or 4 nights, we cannot get enough of it. Sunny Brae is a cosy hotel. From Newcastle to Nairn is a long drive, but we forget the fatigue after a warm welcome and tea on arrival; rooms are tastefully decorated, meals and wines are of high quality. Ian, his son and wife and the entire staff are charming and discreet people, they are professionals and run the hotel in an excellent way. From Nairn one can explore so many interesting and stunning locations in the neighbourhood and further on, we can only recommend this place.

Spent two nights as part of a golf tour in the area. Friendly welcome, knowledgeable hosts and spotless accommodation. Food remains of a high standard (we had dined here previously) and the wine list is first class and well priced. I recommend trying some of the different gins too!
