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

We have stayed here before a couple of times at least and we chose our mini break here again as we knew we would be guaranteed a lovely time. We were not disappointed. We were offered a double room as requested with a four poster and although we hadn't booked a second night there was no issue of extending our... More

Took the family there to celebrate my mothers 70th birthday, the staff were extremely helpful, the food was fantastic, and everyone had a lovely dinner, so good that we had dessert in place of the cake my girlfriend had already made for the occasion.

Visiting my son and his family, booked lunch at the Royal. Have to say the food and service were outstanding. One of the best steaks I've had for a while and the cheesecake was shared between my wife and I and was still too big. Overall, an excellent meal. Friends of ours have also stayed here and said they loved... More

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
