Unexpected stay in Cromarty and the Royal was the only place available. What a treat! Great room..immaculate attention to detail..lovely dinner...and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Would make it my base for another visit to the Black Isle. Top notch.

We stayed for one night Friday 2nd with our young springer. Small but very clean room. Huge bathroom which was perfect for settling up Mollie's sleeping pen. Friendly staff with a warm welcome and time to chat - even the cleaner switched off the hoover on the morning we left to chat. The restaurant food was amazing. One of the... More

Recent one star review of 15 Aug is worth reading. Chance passing by. Menu seemed overpriced so ordered Fish and Chips about 5.30pm Took 30 minutes to arrive. Batter seemed to be coated in glistening rancid oil cooked below temperature.. Chips whiter than snow equally rancid. £12.95? Unfriendly manageress brusquely cleared unfinished table without even a hello. Lovely situation spoiled... More

Great food, comfortable beds and friendly staff in this historic hotel. Lovely location next to the harbour. The views are stunning - I don't mind a couple of oil rigs out there! The breakfast was one of the best, local suppliers are used. Bedrooms are large and extremely comfortable. If you don't get a room with ensuite, you will have... More

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
