“Haven of peace and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2011

Rather than stop in nearby Inverness, I elected to stop in Cromarty (aprox 15 miles away) and explore the Black Isle (actually a peninsula).

After reading the reviews I knew that I would just be stopping in a basic village inn, so therefore wasnt expecting a 5 star experience. The Inn is set on the beautiful village main street (very quiet) and is very welcoming.
My room wasn't en suite, but was spacious and clean with multi channel TV.
Food is served in the bar and is nice and unexpensive. The bar is home to locals and serves real ale.
On the down side, there is no internet or mobile phone signal in the room, but I found it nice to get away from work calls for a while.

The village and harbour are beautiful. Take a few hours to have a wander round.

Breakfasts are served from 8.30am and are plentiful and nice.
Would I return? . . . . Certainly

Visited Cromarty, a lovely place our only regret was to have lunch at the Cromarty Arms Inn, we found the landlord very aggressive with a could not care less attitude, the place was ditrty with worn carpets and burns in the seating, Televisions everywhere, as for home cooking? maybe a micro wave and a chip pan, we will "NOT" be going back to the Cromarty Arms Inn.

Room Tip: Find another place for B&B

We didn't stay, just had lunch here. It is opposite Cromarty Court House which is also OK and Hugh Miller's cottage which is closed Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in July and one wonders how it ever got 5 stars when only open half the week.

Our lunch at the Cromarty Arms was disappointing. The bar dining area was packed with giant TVs, one-arm bandits and other paraphernalia and the decor was really tired with nails, hooks, cables and broken electrical trunking running around the ceilings and walls.

The haddock and scampi dishes were OK, but why do they have fresh salad, but not fresh vegetables which obviously came out of a frozen mixed veg pack and my salad had three bits of pepper, orange and yellow which measured about 8mm per side.

Staff pleasant enough, but why have a giant television playing when no one is watching it?

Needs to update itself if it wants tourists, if it is just for locals then it is probably fine enough.
