Positive Reviews

Delicious food

Delicacies at the Braeval has been well appreciated by the guests. The bar too is noted to have a good selection of drinks. Guests have especially enjoyed meat and sea-food. Reasonable pricing and exquisite sea view only adds to the external flavour.

Quiet setting

Guests have noted the hotel to be an ideal place to relax after a hectic period. Its location offers a peaceful setting. The rooms, especially the sea view and garden view offer a pleasant experience. There are night-time live music events scheduled sometimes, but the staff help in arranging for an alternate quieter room (if available) for guests who feel disturbed.

Friendly staff

Guests have noted the staff to be friendly and welcoming. Foreign travellers have expressed great satisfaction in experiencing Scottish hospitality. The staff also assist in trip planning, helping out with local information and scheduling.

Negative Reviews

No parking in the hotel

The hotel does not have a private parking. Some guests have expressed displeasure over this. You may specifically find it uncomfortable if the hotel is fully booked. Street parking, however, is available in and around the hotel.

Understaffing reduces quality of service.

Some guests have remarked that the hotel could do with some investment in staffing. They note that the hotel services were delayed because existing staff were overloaded. This even extends to the onsite bar and restaurant.

Wi-Fi not consistent

Business travellers found the quality of Wi-Fi to be poor in certain rooms. Some have remarked that only certain areas of the hotel receive a good signal and these places are not ideal for office work.
