In serious need of an update!! The two people on staff were not helpful in the slightest... Had to ring the bell at the front desk several times and still got no reply. I had to go hunting at the bar for someone to help me check in. The woman who then checked me in acted as if I was... More

We stayed for one night, and was given a warm and friendly welcome on arrival. The room was adequate for what we needed, but we felt the carpet and some of the other interior was needing changed, (updated if you will). Our breakfast was faultless. A wonderful cooked breakfast along with cereal and unlimited amount of toast it seemed! The... More

It's possible to have a pot of tea there for one, at in between times. Also, a while ago, I had a meal there and it was excellent! Also, very importantly, when I get off a bus at the main bus place in Dingwall which is very near to the National Hotel, and I'm desperate to go to a toilet... More

We stayed at the National Hotel in Dingwall for 1 night in August 2015. The hotel is situated in the centre of the town with a free car park at the rear. Lots of charm, tartan and wood panelling in the main rooms which give it a real Scottish feel. The staff (not local) but very pleasant and helpful. We... More

The National lies in a very convenient location, centrally placed in Dingwall, and right near the railway station. It is a rather faded grand old lady. My room was generous in size, but basic in furnishing. It was clean and warm, and the bathroom was fine. There is free wifi in the public areas, but this does not extend to... More

Stayed two nights in this charming Scottish Highland Hotel, very convenient location near Railway Station, Local Buses and Shopping Street. A short walk to Ross County Football Stadium. Very warm helpful staff, good sized room with a firm mattress that helped me have a great sleep both nights of my stay.

A very attractive looking mid-1800s hotel within a town centre of architecture of a similar era. A nice entrance with a couple of sofas and a pleasant welcome from the standard european staff member. Rooms are situated along a series of corridors at different levels, some with unfinished doors and frames. The room is best described as basic, with seventies... More
