I stayed at the Royal as part of a week long business tour of the West Highlands and it was by far the best of the week's hotels. The Royal has an enviable location above Portree's harbour and the view from the room was breathtaking.
The hotel staff were helpful and enthusiastic and, in contrast to other experiences of the week, the Royal was clean, well maintaned and pleasant to be in. The room was large, modern and comfortable. (This may not be true of all the rooms because the hotel consists of two sections - the original building and the newer extension where I stayed.)
Overall, the Royal was everything one would hope for of a mid-priced small hotel, but in addition to that it served not only the best evening meal of the week but just possibly the best meal that I've ever had in a hotel.
