A great time at the Bandstand

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Jul 2021via mobile
Just spend a few days in Nairn at the Bandstand pub/hotel.
From start to finish we were treated by a friendly staff who were attentive and helpful in every way.
Room 9 on the top floor but not a hard climb!!
A huge room and massive soft bed. Great sleep.
Breakfast excellent, attended to by Linda, lovely person, nothing a problem, speedy service, hot milk for your cereal, hot toast, and a bfast to die for.
Unfortunately never got chance to have dinner as out all day and forgot to book table for night time, fully booked, says it all.
Would we go back, most definitely, Paul the owner is always on hand, will even move his big 4x4 to give you parking space and bring your luggage in.
Overall a most enjoyable experience, thanks to everyone, bar staff are lovely chatty people as well.

Had an overnight stay last week, for a hotel thats been closed since December they could have spent time cleaning it in preparation for reopening. Room rather small, dated and very dusty, shower curtain had a sour smell and mould on it, the shower tray was also mouldy and grubby. I was the only person in the restaurant and the waitress came with my starter and main at the same time then asked is that ok, well not really as my main was getting cold as I ate my soup..Not a hotel I would have chosen had I been paying.The hotel also advertised free parking, well there's no parking i had to park on the street.

Staff were friendly and went out of their way to help with a good few of my requests for different things! Had a lovely chat with the owner and was really made to feel at home. Food from the bar was delicious. Thanks again!

Nice warm room with sea view looking towards bandstand. Very pleased to find choice of real ale in the bar and an extensive menu with plenty of choice for both dinner and breakfast. Good opening and serving times for bar and meals. You could almost forget that there was a pandemic on !

Had a lovely stay with the team at Braeval/bandstand hotel! Considering they had 24 hours notice of the new Covid restrictions they set up an outside drinking and eating space with heaters meaning I could stay outside chatting away to the locals and having good Scottish beer and whisky. The steak pie was right up there as one of the best I’ve ever had, made fresh every day!

It is the staff however who make this place, I met everyone from the owner to the waiting staff and the chef, and to a person everyone was so friendly and welcoming! Reconditions galore and some great local produce tried! The room was more than adequate for my night away golfing with a nice shower and a great view of the sea to wake up to! It’s just a shame the government wouldn’t allow for live music as suspect it would have been a brilliant though much later night! Thanks team Bandstand!
