We were at the end of a day in Easter Ross attending a funeral. A meal before heading back to Moray was required. The Royal has changed hands since our last visit, so we decided to pay the hotel visit. Little has changed. Still a very pleasant dining area in the bar with a welcoming coal fire giving a nice...

Stayed overnight on 17th October. Staff were pleasant and helpful although, thin on the ground at times. The hotel urgently needs a makeover. However, dined in the hotel and the meal was excellent. Rooms were fine although hot and cold water taps were both producing hot water! Not great value for money

Went for lunch at this lovely old hotel. The food was really lovely with generous portions and very well presented. It was all freshly prepared and extremely tasty. We have been often for lunch and can highly recommend it. The service was excellent and Leanne was our waitress who was really pleasant and attentive. Great place to go to eat.

Stayed overnight on a business trip to the far north of Scotland and stayed in this hotel. Excellent value and better than it's price suggested; even better when we got upgraded on arrival. The room was decent and the bed (for me anyway) was very comfortable. The cooked breakfast was good, but the whisky selection in the bar was incredible;...

A perfect place to stop on the way back from the far north of Scotland. The manager Ayaz on the reception was very warm and friendly. Basic bathroom facilities but all you need for a shower or a bath. The room was very cosy and the bed was comfortable. The food was great for dinner, but buffet breakfast was a...

We spent one night here on our way back from a long drive to John O Groats. I was very tired and this may have coloured my opinion of this hotel. When I booked earlier in the year I was impressed with the website and the reviews and looked forward to our stay. The room was only adequate, clean and...
