“Lovely house by the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

The Invernairne Hotel is tucked away a quarter of a mile or so from downtown Nairn and close to the beach. The building is spotless and charming. There is ample parking in front and the grounds are immaculate. The room was functional if a bit small. There is a charming bar that feels clubby and comfy. The breakfast room is lovely and there is a nice selection of food. It's a self-service breakfast and very relaxed. The fare seemed about right for the accommodation and the staff was more than welcoming.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the building have a great view of the water.

Friendly check in. Room (top tarif) was basic and on the small side. Did not like the bathroom -had public toilet style tissue dispenser and a bathroom cupboard on wheels that reminded me of a hospital/hospice. Breakfast was disappointing. More of a buffet style so the sausages were overcooked and stiff. Friendly staff however made up for the poor breakfast and average room. Bar was closed due to renovation which were not highlighted of prior to stay and no discount to tariff offered. Garden access to the beach promenade was a nice touch. Overall - left disappointed and slightly ripped off.

Friendly welcome on arrival. Spacious clean and well appointed sea view bedroom. Very comfortable. Plentiful and well prepared breakfast. Nice grounds with easy access to the shore. A must if planning a stay in Nairn.

My husband and I had a weekend trip to the seaside with our 2 year old granddaughter . The Invernairne more than lived up to our expectations. We had a sea veiw ensuite room with ajoining room with cot for our grandaughter .It was well furnished ,clean with a comfortable double bed.Breakfast was very good .The owners work very hard to please and run a frienly very pleasant house. Great access to gardens and beach .Great value for money.

Room Tip: Go for a sea veiw room

Helpful hosts and our stay was enjoyable, notably the walk on the beach (good access from the Guest House) were we saw dolphins.

We stayed in the Brodie Room (no view) which we felt should be classed as a single room, so if you are looking for space then suggest you choose another room.

Breakfast was good, muesli was nice but hosts may want to re think the tinned fruit!

Room Tip: Don't expect - ask hosts for what you want and our experience was they then tried to accomodate

Warm welcome from the owner on arrival, lovely atmosphere, clean comfortable room with en suite, good breakfast - and a beach with stunning views at the foot of the garden (wheelchair users or someone unsteady on their feet would need to use a different route to the beach).

Just a shame we couldn't see the sea view from our bed itself, as the bed was tucked in an alcove, away from the window - but that was just down to the shape of that particular room. No evening meal but we weren't led to expect one and the owners provide a map and useful list of local eateries, including a good Indian restaurant which they recommended. Lovely atmosphere in the hotel - would be happy to go back. Great cakes at Lilly's tea shop in Nairn, too.

Room Tip: We didn't see any other rooms so can't comment. My only tip would be to order poached fried...
