We had a lovely three night stay here. Our room was spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean, with beautiful sea views, and had everything we needed. The king size bed was firm, which is what we like, with quality bedding. There were also good quality toiletries, nice range of teas, and bottled water and lovely biscuits, both replenished each day.
Breakfast was delicious! The produce is of excellent quality, and very well prepared, cooked and presented.
There is a very comfortable lounge which makes the most of those sea views. Sunny Brae is licensed, so you can enjoy a tipple here if you wish.
John and Rachel are the perfect hosts - friendly, welcoming, and nothing is too much trouble. All of the team that we met were equally friendly and helpful.
When we return to Nairn, this will most certainly be our first choice of places to stay. Excellent!

We stayed at the Sunny Brae for 5 nights in late May, 2023, and had a wonderful experience. The location is outstanding, being a short walk from the old town and near the beach. The view from the lounge in the hotel was of the sea and the sunset. Breakfast had a limited menu but was cooked to order every morning and was fantastic. I had an omelet every morning for breakfast and it was excellent. The owners, Rachel and John, are very friendly and helpful. I think the Sunny Brae has only 8 rooms but the facility was terrific. We went to Nairn to play golf prior to a Rick Steves' Heart of Scotland tour, which originated in Inverness, which is only a short 20 minute train ride away. We walked about 0.5 mile to Nairn Dunbar golf course and about 1.0 mile to Nairn Golf club. We played these courses on different days (other visitors at Sunny Brae played both in the same day). We also used one day to play the par 3 course at Nairn Golf club. The location of Sunny Brae allowed us to walk to both courses but also walk to many restaurants and cafes as well as a Catholic Church. We enjoyed our visit to Nairn and the Sunny Brae and would highly recommend a visit there. The Sunny Brae was small enough to allow us to have pleasant interactions with the owners and fellow guests.

Room tip: The Sunny Brae has only 8 rooms so book as early as possible.

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst attending some functions in Nairn. The hosts are warm and welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful.
The room was clean and very comfortable with all the necessary amenities. We stayed in the accessible room and the bathroom was partially good. The breakfast was all freshly cooked to order and very tasty. We will have no hesitation in returning to Sunny Brae and would highly recommend.

Room tip: Ask for a sea view.

Had the pleasure of staying for two nights at Sunny Brae. Everything was perfect. The sea view room was impeccably clean and very comfortable. Big bathroom, fluffy towels, great shower, comfy bed, and a great cup of tea to relax with after long walks along the shore. Breakfast was delicious each morning. The hosts were so welcoming and ready to help with any questions you may have. I would definitely recommend Sunny Brae and look forward to my next visit.
