We stayed in the room pictured on this website - a superior room facing the Cromarty Firth. The hotel was clean and the bed comfortable and the food in the bar was hearty - being served in enormous proportions. We had a couple of niggles with our room which perhaps reflected a lack of attention to detail on the part... More

We had a lovely stay in this hotel and the restaurant was excellent. We sat in the porch for dinner which had a great view, great haggis and really good steak. The bar was good and had a fire going. The room was very clean and comfortable, again with a great view. We would stay here again!

I was surprised to read the last review complaining of service. We had a very friendly welcome and excellent service. True the reception area wasn't manned most of the time but that hardly mattered as someone was always in the bar close by. I would recommend this hotel for its position overlooking the Firth and being in the charming village/town... More

In my line of business I have to stay at many hotels, I have stayed in a lot of low class hotels in which standards havent been quite up to mark, but I have never felt the need to comment on here about them until my recent trip to The Royal Hotel in Cromarty! It all started from the initial... More

We decided to give the Royal another try after having a not so tasty lunch over a year ago. Glad we did as we could not fault it this time. Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere with an abundance of Cromarty Brewery real ale much to our delight!

Travelled to Cromarty for early dinner, we were informed that they had no fish or scampi which was a bit of a downer as we enjoyed the haddock last time we were here. We ordered two chicken curries and salmon with new potatoes. The chicken curries were tasty but could have been served better for £14 a plate. The salmon... More

We know Cromarty very well and have eaten in The Royal often. This was our first stay in the hotel and what a treat. The bedroom had wonderful views over the water and the bathroom was very spacious with a lovely deep bath. Bedroom was also spacious with lovely comfy bed. Also loved the mugs for tea instead of cups... More

A 2 night stay in this wonderful old hotel was better than I ever expected. Full marks to Jenny and the team. The service was good, our bedrooms were large and both overlooked the Firth of Cromarty. Our double bedroom had a 4 poster bed and was beautifully clean and spacious. Large bathroom with bath and shower, toiletries and lovely... More
