this is a small good hotel in Dingwall. Its a value for money in that village. It has everything that you will need in a hotel. Its clean, with good wifi connection and a proper Scottish breakfast and generally Scottish food.

I stayed here for 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and had everything you needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially the lady on the desk. Had breakfast and dinner here which was excellent. One morning the breakfast was over cooked but the waitress and the kitchen were rather stressed out by some very rude... More

Traveling from John O'Groats to Inverness Airport "en famille" - 5 adults and two children. Hunger pangs set in and we pulled into Dingwall and found ourselves outside the National Hotel at about 13.30. Premises looked a little run down from outside but when I went inside to see if they could feed us the staff were cheerful, courteous and... More

Four of us went for a drink after the Commonwealth games parade, staff were friendly but we felt the bar needed a colour change or some improvement. Does the job is the best we could say. Probably as good as any of the pubs in Dingwall.

Stayed for 2 nights end of May while working in Dingwall. Pleasant hotel with friendly staff handy for the centre of town. Don't expect the ritz or a palace, the hotel is average but given the footfall (coach trips) it serves a purpose. Room was compact with a double bed, TV, dresser / table. Wardrobe and small bathroom. Comfortable for... More

Due to unforseen circumstances late one Sunday afternoon we had to catch the train home from Dingwall. As we had a three hour wait for the train we called into the National, a short walk from the station, seeking a cup of tea and somewhere civilised to wait. We could not have been made more welcome. The receptionist was very... More

The National is lets face it, cheap n cheerful. I knew before I went and got what I expected. Checking in after office hours is a lottery but I got to my room about 10pm and it was fine. Decent sleep, ok shower, nice breakfast and out at 8am. Does what it says on the tin. Wouldn't take the Mrs... More

The staff were helpful and friendly during my stay here. The rooms were clean and couldnt be faulted. The food was very good and was reasonably priced. The hotel had sufficient parking and a central location.

Just went in here for a meal as we wanted to stay in the town centre, walking in from the local campsite. We were the only diners on a Friday night in a large dining room, but there was more life in the adjacent bar. Plenty of late Victorian atmosphere (and furnishings, I suspect!) and a good example of a... More

This hotel was not welcoming. Had to press button few times and waited ages to be shown room. Room had not TV and toilet would not flush until you pumped it good few times. Had to pay another £5 to get a room that had aTV and a toilet that worked. There were hoovers left all through the passages but... More
