Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in the Honeymoon suite on the top floor, very nice room; felt very Scottish (we're from NZ) so we were super happy with in. My partner proposed in the turret, so we will always have fond memories of our stay here at the Royal in Keith.

Went here for an evening meal and it was amazing. Definitely recommend this place for a meal. My friend and I had the lasagne and my husband had the steak pie. All were well presented and very tasty. Will definitely be going back.

Didn't have a reservation anywhere and ended up here. It was alright. Ended up on the 3rd floor on a room facing the side street. Room was clean, much nicer than the common areas. However, the wi-fi wouldn't work in our room and the tv had problems too. We had to close the windows when we went to bed due to lots of street noise -people walking back from the pubs up the street. That made the room very hot to sleep in. The pub had great burgers.

I stayed at The Royal Hotel while attending the Keith TMSA. It is located just a 10 minute walk from the station on the corner of the main road. The welcome was warm and I was taken up to my room and explained everything on the way. It's a very old fashioned Victorian hotel, which had plenty of character to it. The room was a good size with En-suite toilet and shower. I had a meal downstairs in the bar which has an extensive menu and plenty of seating. The food was tasty and fresh. It provides a nice alternative to the restaurant up the stairs (which also had a nice menu), I had two little disappointments however, 1) breakfast wasn't explained other than that it was included in the price of the room. I went down and was seated almost immediately but the waitress just walked off, there was no menus about but eventually I noticed (I'm partially sighted) there was a table on the other side of the room which had cereals, fruit and juices so I went and helped myself. No sooner had i returned to the table and a huge plate of every possible cooked item (and toast) was placed in front of me. The food was good but I don't eat everything so felt a but disappointed to be not given a choice of what I would like and have food wasted. 2) I went to check out at reception and had been told my room had already been paid for (unknown to me at the time of booking). Despite this I look forward to returning knowing what to expect again.

My wife and I popped in to this hotel whilst visiting Keith for a spot of lunch and were somewhat surprised to find ourselves the only customers in the bar on a Saturday lunchtime. We both selected the tagliatelle with a red pepper & tomato sauce accompanied by two pieces of garlic bread and were delighted with our choice. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the sauce was rich and really tasty. In fact we enjoyed it so much we asked the barman to convey 'thanks and well done' to the chef. We were there for about an hour and by the time we left there were only 2 other customers in the bar. Where does everyone in Keith go to on a Saturday lunchtime? They are certainly missing a treat because the Royal has a well run bar, a friendly barman and delicious food. Go on give it a try and don't be put off by the slightly drab exterior to the building; it is nice and cosy in the bar.

My partner and I stayed here along with a few other people to attend a local wedding. The outside doesn't look very good from the road and parking is very limited in the hotel car park. That being said there is plenty of on street parking or local free public parking areas. The room we stayed in was lovely, clean and had the comfiest bed I have slept in for ages. The only downfall was the shower, it was an electric shower and it was a bit random with the temperature. The breakfast was lovely, a freshly prepared cooked breakfast and had a choice of a selection of cereals, yoghurt and fresh juices. Tea and coffee was made for you and toast was plentiful. All staff we dealt with were lovely and I would recommend the hotel to people staying in the area.

Stayed one night on our first visit to the Scottish Highlands. This hotel was booked for us by relatives and we loved it! An old hotel with old world charm. The bedrooms were big and comfortable. Pub was great and dinner in the restaurant good.

We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The service is always speedy and friendly. Our most recent visit was business as usual. Good quality food and good portion sizes. The whisky sauce with the Royal Highland Steak was beautiful as was the haggis topping. Several of us had the Pate and oatcakes which was very tasty too with generous portion size. The very minor point I would raise is, the chips on the children's meal came out with salt all over them. We try not to give our kids additional salt for obvious reasons. When we mentioned this to the waitress, she said all the chips came with salt on them, but she would be happy to change them. The new meal came out very quickly without salted chips.
