I stayed in this hotel last week as part of a group tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The main part of the hotel is a 17th Century state house that has been well restored. The service was personal and attentive and very friendly. The rooms were extremely comfortable. Lovely bathrooms and great showers! The meal was quite good- as good as you seem to get on inclusive group tours. The disappointment was only staying one night. Peaceful and relaxing!

Stayed: October 2013

Took a short break mid-week to Nairn, enjoying a two night break in the Newton Hotel. The original building is magnificent and although extended this is not immediately apparent from the front. Staff were very welcoming and our room was situated on the second floor. The door to the room was quite heavy and stiff to open which demonstrated the unique charm of this quite impressive building. We learned that the hotel and the second floor in particularly was regularly occupied by the late great Charlie Chaplin. The main restaurant is named after the great man himself. The food was outstanding and the service equal to match. The room was in essence an attic room but more than adequate for our stay. Whilst parts of the hotel are in need of some upgrading the charm and sense of atmosphere and history you get more than makes up for a lick of paint. Proved to be an ideal base from which to explore the local area. And to see in excess of 30 seals lying on a beach sunning themselves in what was outstanding weather for the time of the year made the trip all the more worthwhile. Give this place look.

Great location set in secluded grounds surrounded by woods but also has sea views.

Rooms were large and clean, the suites are brilliant and have an older character but modern feel to them which is in perfect fitting for this hotel.

Only draw back was the meal, out of the 8 people at my table two of us ordered steaks, a sirloin and a rump. When it arrived my sirloin was as fit to eat as a sandal! My friend made a triangular cut into her steak which she found was undercooked to her liking. Both were sent back. My friend got a new steak cooked to perfection however i recieved a steak with a triangular cut it in (her previous rump steak and not the sirloin i was paying £25 for!) which was again overcooked. I sent it back and ordered an alternative which by time it arrived my friends had all finished their desserts. Not even an apology from a chef that cant cook a steak and had the cheek to send me someone elses reject!

The waitress (lyndsey) was fantastic throughout this and i found the rest of staff to be equally as polite and helpfull.

I would highly recommend this hotel but just dont order a steak!

Recently had the reception for my daughter's Christening held here and can't fault the Newton Hotel at all. Organising it was made so easy by Hannah, who was extremely helpful. And the service we received on the day was fantastic. We received a friendly welcome on arrival, waiting staff were efficient and the selection of sandwiches,that was supplied was fantastic,all for a very reasonable price.

Stayed for 3 nights in October. Spacious and comfortable Executive room. Extensive breakfast and dinner menu very well presented. Dinner main course was just lukewarm on two occasions. Mentioned this to manager when he asked about the meal and it was sorted thereafter.

Stayed here as we were attending a wedding... We booked a standard room but decided to upgrade to an executive room...and we certainly weren't disappointed... Laura the receptionist was lovely.... A real credit to this hotel, she quickly checked us in and directed us to our room. In a very friendly and helpful manner.
The room was on the second floor in the new part of the building, and had the wow factor. The bathroom was lovely and the power shower certainly had the power !!!! The bed was comfy enough although did squeak something terrible... But that was really the only complaint!!
Breakfast was delightful and was served by a really friendly hardworking team. Nothing to fault with the selection or the quality of food ... Must say 10/10.

Room Tip: We had a room in the new part and I don't think you would be disappointed !!
