Excellent B&B which has been owned and run for the past few months by Anika and Andreas - they were both very welcoming and friendly. Our double room was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was fantastic - they do a daily special breakfast choice too. This was just a short stop-off for us but we were made to feel very welcome....

The location is very near the town centre but still quiet.The German husband and wife team make every effort to present a good experience with very good breakfasts. There is a guest sitting room ,well furnished and comfortable.

Beautiful Victorian house, smart, but refreshingly arty, decor, a lovely mix of old & new, with Andy's distinctive photographs. Lovely guest sitting room. We had the four poster kingsize (5') bedroom 3 which was huge. The ensuite had the nicest posh 'potions'! Breakfast was delicious, with a big choice, beautiful fruit salad & homemade bread. Easy stroll to pubs, restaurants,...

We had a wonderful 2 night stay here at the start of our holiday and returned for our final night as well. The hosts are so welcoming. The rooms are beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice including a daily homemade special. Nairn is a good base for touring this part of the Highlands....

Spent two nights here and the main attraction in booking was how convenient it was in allowing us to walk into Nairn and enjoy our evenings. This certainly proved to be the case but, almost as a bonus, it is run by a lovely couple with experience in the catering and hospitality industry and so it is run to their...

We booked the family room which actually comprises 2 bedrooms and a bathroom in it's own little suite which has a separate lockable entrance.

We stayed at the Cawdor House Hotel for a couple of nights during a visit home over Hogmanay and we had a wonderful time. Anita and Andreas are the perfect hosts and they looked after us well and made us feel very welcome. Many thanks for a wonderful stay and we will be back.

We stayed at Cawdor House for two nights during a whirlwind tour of Scotland. Andy and Anika could not have been better hosts! Our room, the garden, was just outside the main house. It was spacious, cozy and warm on some pretty cool nights. After leaving a very loud hotel in Edinburgh, we were very pleased to have a quiet...

This 8 room B&B in Nairn was a great find. The owners are hosts Anika and Andy. Anika was until February 2016 general manager for a large hotel in Munich whilst her husband Andy is a professional photographer. Well worth a visit if you are visiting that part of Scotland.
