We had booked the Beauly Apartments who are owned by this hotel. Due to a misunderstanding with our booking, we had booked 3 apartments but only one was available. 5 into 1 apartment just won't go. We made our way to The National, 10 miles further away from Beauly and Belladrum. We were offered 3 small double rooms that were... More

If I was rating this hotel purely on the food I would have given it a solid five stars. The meals we had were served swiftly, were delicious and the portions were generous. Definitely value for money! However, the hotel itself is dated and in need of a good face-lift. I stayed in a twin room and it was spotlessly... More

Stayed here for one night and can see that the owners are trying hard to turn this hotel around. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathrooms look like they've been recently refurbished. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We did not eat at this hotel but the food did look nice. As I said this hotel is... More

The welcome was warm and charming. The room and en-suite was lean and comfortable. My only negative comment would be is that the lighting could be just a little lighter. The food was very good with large portions. The only down side would be the fact that the bar closed a little early for a hotel. The hotel itself has... More

Just returned from a weekend here. My son and I wanted to explore the Highlands, and decided to make this hotel our base (the price for 2 nights was the same as 1 night in Inverness or anywhere else. So glad we made this decision. The hotel itself is old, but it had old school charm. We had a twin... More

I stay here occasionally for business, and it is clear that the premises and staff are overdue for refurb / training. However the welcome is always warm, the room comfortable enough, and the food OK and not unduly expensive. (Though the self-service part of breakfast was disappointing - no fresh fruit and no recogniton of the preferences of visitors from... More

For sometime the national hotel in Dingwall has been a bit of a let down as far as meals were concerned,in its heyday it was a bit of an icon for Dingwall where everyone who got married locally had their reception in the adjoined seaforth room,now I am pleased to say since being taken over it is really pleasing to...

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
