“Loved it!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

This was the exact hotel that I expected to find when we booked our trip. I loved the style , the grounds and most of all the charm. The staff was friendly, the rooms were average but the atmosphere of the hotel outweighed the rooms.

Stayed May 2013, travelled with family

Okay. Let's get the grumble out of the road cos otherwise this was a pleasant weekend break. Arrived after a long Friday drive to be serenaded by overly loud electronic Radio 1 noise in the bar and adjacent areas. Polite comment fell on barren ears. Not appropriate for a 4 star hotel. My request at reception for the manager's response went unanswered. Not a good start.
Moving on. The room and bathroom were clean, well furnished / decorated and spacious. Breakfasts and dinners were generous, tasty and waiting staff were all delightful. Hotel is located in parkland grounds close to a stunning beach with long views. Nairn was not much to write about with empty shops etc, but a drive to Forres was 'worth the petrol'.
Pity about the piped music. A quiet lounge or drawing room for reading would be good.

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!

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.
