A warm welcome awaits you at The Royal Hotel in Cromarty...


20/03/2020 - Coronavirus COVID-19

I just wanted to let you know we are following Government guidelines and adopting a 'serious but sensible' attitude here at the Royal...

We have closed all our hotel rooms from immediate effect and will review this on 20 April 2020. We have reduced our opening hours for this weekend...

Friday 20/03 : open at 4pm

Saturday 21/03 : open at 4pm

Sunday 22/03 : open at 12noon

We have a takeaway and home delivery menu, available 5.30-7.30pm and 12-2.30pm on Sunday so our lovely Mums can still have a wee treat!


Please phone 01381 600217 or email us to order. For home deliveries (Cromarty only) please order by 5pm for evening deliveries and by 12.30noon on Sunday for Sunday lunch delivery.


We are remaining open for business (unless advised otherwise) and our team have been briefed on our new procedures. 

Our already rigorous cleaning regime has been increased, and the public areas of the hotel are being regularly sanitised throughout the day. Our guest bedrooms are being sanitised & deep-cleaned between guests.


We are fortunate to have lots of space at the Royal, so if you join us for lunch, dinner, drinks or coffee, please be assured there will be plenty space between you and other guests. We have plenty soap and water, so please feel free to use our hand-washing facilities when you visit us. 


And if any of our local community need our help during this time, please contact me, and I will do my best to help you. 


The health and well-being of our guests & staff are of utmost importance, and we thank you for your continued support & cooperation at this challenging time. 

Take care everyone,

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 locally-caught fish, langoustines, crab, lobster 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. Please be sure to look out for our "Chef's Daily Specials" blackboards too. View our current (February 2020)  lunch and dinner menus. 

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…
