Situated just 25 miles from Inverness on the shores of the Cromarty Firth, the dog-friendly Royal Hotel is the perfect place to visit to enjoy a delicious meal, for a couple of nights away or to host your corporate event or special family celebration.

Overlooking the harbour and enjoying stunning views of the Cromarty Firth & the Sutherland mountains in the distance, the Royal was taken over by a local farmer’s daughter in 2010 and offers a tranquil setting and exceptional Highland hospitality.

Guests return time and time again, whether for a drink in the cosy bar in front of a log fire, to eat in the contemporary restaurant or for a romantic weekend break in one of the eight stylish bedrooms. Our superior rooms have sea views and feature antiques, luxurious fabrics & original artwork, giving a boutique feel.

Lunch and dinner are served daily - the menus change regularly and feature the best of local, seasonal produce – including sustainable Scottish fish, langoustines, mussels, scallops and beef from the owner’s family farm along with locally-reared pork, lamb and game. Wherever possible, we use local seasonal fruit & vegetables too. 


So should you fancy watching the sunset over the yachts in the bay from the conservatory or relaxing in the comfortable sitting-room in front of a log fire with a pint of locally-brewed ale - a warm welcome awaits you at The Royal Hotel in Cromarty…
