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

Stayed here recently while working in boots replacing their boilers. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, management were very helpful. The breakfast was really good and the chef was happy to oblige with any request. I will certainly stay here again when in the area, and I am already planning a weekend break here for me and my wife. Thanks... More

All the staff were very friendly and helpful, {Hi Esther} it was clean and... More

We were not expecting much from this hotel, but we were very pleasantly surprised. It needs a bit of TLC, but the new owners who have been in for a couple of months are very pleasant and chatty. The food is exceptional and most of the meat is provided by the new owners farm which is just down the road.... More
