I have just spent Easter weekend at this most delightful hotel. The staff were very attentive and friendly and it was obvious that everyone working in the hotel really enjoys their work. The rooms were very comfortable and it was clear that the hotel is being upgraded to ensure that guests have a good experience. I was in one of... More

Fabulous place to stay! Very welcoming, and the staff were great! Would definitely stay again! Spent 5 nights staying and was treated very nicely! Placed in a beautiful village as well with friendly locals who are keen to help all the time! Definitely recommend staying!

Visited this area recently in November. Was recommend to eat here and ended up going twice during our short stay. Good is amazing, absolutely excellent. Menu changed each night and all freshly made. Couldn't be friendlier with the service. Highly recommend this place. Lovely location as well. We strolled around the harbour after or meal.

We have been staying in Cromarty for 11 days. During this time we've visited the hotel bar on several occasions, sometimes just for an early evening drink, but we've also eaten there twice - would have liked to there eaten more given half the chance!! The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The menu is great, a good variety of... More

The Royal enjoys an excellent location, with great views. The food at dinner was very good. However, it was not a particularly friendly hotel. Also, breakfast was disappointing. The fruit 'offer' was 4 segments of grapefruit...a fruit which many people on various medications cannot eat. The hotel's biggest problem, however, is its very poor 'value for money'; quite the poorest... More

We have just toured Scotland and stayed in a variety of accommodation, B and B and hotels. We were disappointed with the accommodation at the Royal Hotel and do not think it is value for money. The hotel itself is 'shabby' and 'old' although the lounge bar area is OK . The owner does say in the information that work... More

Is 80 pounds much for dinner for three adults? I don't think so. Tasty, well served, good wine.I could have had a little more lobster, but it was enough. We were seated in the winter garden, well out of the wind, Inside it was rather "hot". The wine was well chilled, though. Rather in the winter garden at the sun... More
