We stayed here after participating in the Coast to Coast race. The hotel is centrally located and close to the beach. The room was very nice, staff friendly and helpful, dinner and breakfast we ate was very good. We highly recommend this fine little hotel!

Stayed here for one night on route home from our holiday. We were given a free upgrade to the superior room which was very comfortable with a chaise longue and small separate seating area all overlooking the Moray Firth. There was an excellent array of toiletries,dressing gowns,fruit and bottled water provided. Dinner was very good with an excellent menu and large variety of wines and whiskies. Breakfast was also very good with lots of choice along with the same attentive service as at dinner. Overall, it was a very enjoyable visit to the area.

We just chanced on this place while travelling through Nairn and were very pleased to have had such luck in finding this gem. This is a small guest house overlooking a beach front park within walking distance of Nairn town centre. It is run very professionally by a family who all seem to help out, but the feeling is always very professional and the service and food were excellent.
I would definitely stay here again.

Our room was clean and comfortable with sea view, bathroom only had shower but it was clean and bath robes were available. Dinner was good if a little pricy (2 courses £24-3courses£30), breakfast was good as was the service.

We went to this hotels wonderful restaurant for my birthday. Service was impeccable. Amazing whiskey list tempts one in the lounge before they call you to table with the first course. Chef offers variety of creative specialties. I had pheasant, my wife selected venison. Each was presented to please the eye as well as the palate. Wine list offered selections from moderate to high end. This was a meal to be savored. The owner/manager even offered a second whisky for the birthday evening.
The prefixed menu offered three courses for 30£ and worth the lovely evening.
All the staff were very attentive. I recommend the restaurant for your quality dining evening

We decided to have a golf break in Scotland & the Sunny Brae was recommended by friends.

Although not the sort of hotel we normally go for (we tend to use hotels with leisure facilities etc) the welcome was very friendly. The hotel is family run,front of house are father son team Ian & John, who are very professional and helpful. John was especially good re wines for dinner.

The chef is the mother, Sylvia and what a chef she is, the food was absolutely fantastic and would put many 5* hotels to shame.

The breakfast was also as good as you could get anywhere.

All the staff were very nice, especially the two young waitresses Kirsty & Nicole.

Rooms were a little dated but very clean and reasonably comfortable. The view from our room was lovely, looking out on to the Moray Firth.....................

The location is excellent if you want to visit places like Aviemore, Loch Ness etc, as well as the many things to do along the east coat of Scotland................................

Nairn has 2 top class golf courses, Nairn itself & Nairn Dunbar. If you are going to play Nairn then you had better bring your A game, it is a beast of a course running alongside Moray Firth.

I would certainly recommend this hotel, and if you cannot get in but are staying elsewhere locally then make sure you book in for dinner, you will not be disappointed. They also have an excellent & extensive, if slightly expensive wine list.
