Stayed for 1 night at Boath House, expected great things, but were on the whole very disappointed. The potential of this building is high, but I feel the management have run out of enthusiasm (not .hard when looking after a listed building) and although in the 90’s the facilities would have been acceptable, for now they are not. But for the quality of the breakfast, which was excellent, and the friendly local (overworked) staff, I would have scored this harsher. We had initially booked into one of the two cottages, but although it looked good, there was no internet and no DVD player. I had on-line work to do, and paying the substantial fee for the night I felt this unacceptable. We were offered the only remaining room in the hotel, room 5, which did have internet, but no DVD player. The room was OK, with a comfortable bed, but other than a flat screen TV, had very little ‘luxuries’ that you would expect at the rate of £290 a night B & B. There were some bizarre features, like the 1st light switch to the room being through the door, and through a vestibule, down a small flight of stairs and into the room. A real death trap in the dark. The room was lacking in power points, surprising in a renovated building, except in the bathroom, where plugs were less than a metre from the bath, which certainly breeches building control. The metal bath was impractical and took an age and a half to fill. Toiletries were of the industrial size type, with stern warnings not to remove. There were no bars of soap, leading to lugging round the dispensers. Acceptable in a Travel Lodge, but not here! I felt the décor in the room was run down, and needed freshening up. In general, the place looked slightly shabby without the chic. The room also had considerable road noise from the main road. The property is on the market for sale, which might explain some of it. The grounds are very pretty, and the breakfast was good. Won’t be rushing back.

Boath House My husband and I stayed at Boath House in room 3 for 2 nights in October. Cindy was so helpful both before and during our stay, giving recommendations for which room best suited us and great knowledge of the estate. On arrival we were greeted, shown around the House and taken to our room. Fresh milk, tea, coffee and shortbread were provided along with a Nespresso machine and an array of Molten Brown toiletries. Room 3 was beautiful and made extra special with the twin baths in the huge bathroom and views over the walled garden and lake. Breakfast was delicious, varied and very efficiently served. We ate at The Kale Yard both nights and were not disappointed. Not too expensive by hotel restaurant standards and delicious food both evenings. Hope to return one day 🤍

A lovely hotel with 7 rooms and 2 cottages in well curated grounds. The kitchen garden is admirable and serves the restaurant located in its own building. Deliberately downplayed in the full knowledge this would lose them a Michelin star, the cooking is nonetheless very sound. The salad of artichokes from the garden was exceptional. The pizza oven might have a market for some guests, but steer clear if only so you can experience the very skilful and thoughtful cooking on offer here.

An amazing jewel of a hotel near Nairn, where my husband and I went for a week to walk the Moray Coastal Trail and golf in some of the amazing courses nearby. The hotel was a beautifully restored mansion house with a wonderful scented walled garden in which they had created a truly gastronomic Michelin star restaurant. Every meal was a delight. The lovely family owners all ran the hotel with the most kind and helpful staff who could not do enough for your every need. We're definitely going to make it an annual pilgrimage with our own family. Michele and Robert Dale, North Berwick, Scotland
