“comfortable and cute, great breakfast!”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

We stayed at the Sunny Brae in August 2011. We stayed for 2 nights I believe. Its a very quiet hotel, b&b feel. Very welcoming and friendly owners. Rooms were great, nicely furnished, with a cute country feel (which I adored). There was a little tv and a kettle and lots of books on a shelf (one of them really caught my eye and I ended up reading it when I got back to Canada, the suspicious of mr witcher). The breakfast was amazing, there was no menu per say, we were just asked what we wanted based on what they had available for ingredients. I was so surprised by this! There was also lots of local homemade honeys and jams available for our toasts. We also used their laundry service which was great, our clothes were well taken care of and brought back in time.

Thank you for your kind review. We try to use local produce as much as we can. The jams and marmalade are made by a lady in Aberdeenshire and, when available, we use honey from Cawdor. Should you ever be in the area again we would like to welcome you back to Sunny Brae.

Great place with spectacular view across the Moray Firth. Really helpful staff, family run, with an excellent breakfast. The room was fine, but was a little small and felt more like a guest house than a hotel. We didn't have dinner here, but the menu looked excellent so worth making advanced reservations if you come here!

This establishment is a winner and we will be back. We booked the evening before and secured the only available room, which turned out to be the room for the disabled. Ground floor, spacious with views over the cricket field and the Firth beyond. Clean as a pin, attentive owners, and do yourself a favor - dine in. Excellent.

Room Tip: Seek a front room.

We stayed Friday 13 September as we were competing in the Coast to Coast Event (Nairn to Fort William). The hotel was spotless and fantastic. The owners/staff were extremely helpful and relaxed about leaving our cars til the Sunday. They even got up to provide breakfast at 0500h for the seven of us competing. By the by, they are perfectly located 30 yards from the start of the race and about 100 yards from the race HQ - but I accept that is only a plus for a minority of their visitors!

Dinner was very very good - really high quality. Can't say enough.

Thank you very much indeed. Tempted to come back to do the race next year if only to stay at Sunny Brae.

Room Tip: They are all good but I guess a sea view is nice.

We enjoyed our stay here while visiting Nairn.

This little guest house is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The owners obviously take great pride in sharing their home with guests.
We were welcomed and shown to our room on the first floor. We had paid extra for a sea view and this was well worth it. The room had all we needed and we appreciated all the thoughtful, extra touches, especially the dressing gowns and the bottled water. The bathroom was small but had a good shower.

There were 2 armchairs in front of the window and this made a relaxing place to sit after our journey. Sunny Brae has a lounge downstairs but we preferred the privacy of our room.

We ate in the restaurant one evening - this is situated in a conservatory at the back of the house - and the food was ok, but lacked seasoning.

There was plenty of choice at breakfast and the service was pleasant and friendly.

The best things about Sunny Brae are the location - facing the Moray Firth across the cricket ground and the bandstand - the cleanliness and the friendly hosts.
It's a little old-fashioned and would probably suit elderly guests more than younger visitors.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sea view (and then keep your fingers crossed for the weather!)

Probably the nicest small hotel we have stayed in. Attention to detail was superb. Spotlessly clean ,very comfortable bed, superb food very well presented. Position just over road from beach , and such a ice promenade to walk on would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Overlooking the sea, but any would be ok as a delightful lounge to sit in overlooking the sea
