We hadn't heard the best reports about this hotel recently but thought we'd give it a try and judge for ourselves. Booked a table for dinner with two friends and our two pre-school kids - restaurant was pretty busy to be fair but there were only three waiters on doing the bar and reception as well, as far as I...

We dropped in for an evening meal, and although we had to wait quite a while to be served our courses, the food was lovely. The waitress was having to serve at the bar as well as serve the meals, assisted by a young waiter. A party of 10 arrived at their reserved table, and when their meals were being...

A really friendly hotel. Lovely food and lots of it. Most importantly the bed was so comfy I had a great nights sleep in the centre of Tain it is easy to get to and has. Lots of parking available. the only down side was the noise the bin men made.

We were here for lunch and we really enjoyed it. We picked our food and the waiter asked us if we were in a hurry. We said we were not and he told us it would take a while for one of the dishes. It really wasn't that long a wait but it was worth it. I had the pork...

We waiting 50 mins for our main course. We weren't offered a dessert. think the staff were desperate to get home as by now it was 9.45. We...

All the staff are friendly and easy to talk to if you just fancy a chat in the bar. Beware at breakfast time if your the kind of person who doesn't like a lot to eat. whatever you order it will be a big portion and you'll get about 4 slices of toast to top that off with. Great place...

When we went to dine, in November, it was quiet, just how we wanted it, for our special day. The food was excellent, and the service was good, from the lady who was struggling to keep going suffering from a heavy cold, she did well. However, the thing that warmed our hearts the most, was the Indian gentleman on reception,...

A regular meeting of friends for dinner and a chat, the Royal was chosen on this occasion. We were a bit early but the dining room was cold. A caring member of staff lit the fire for us. The standard menu was very uninspiring reminiscent of 1960s Scottish hotels and although the service was good and reasonably prompt the food...
