Spent 2 nights in this hotel on our recent tour of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Had a great room (No. 3, fairly big, first floor) with a super view of Portree Harbour and out to sea. Although situated on a slightly busy road we didn't find our room at all noisy. Most traffic died down in the evening anyway. The hotel staff were helpful and courteous and the rooms in good order and clean. We ate in the hotel on our first night and found the food in the restaurant was superb and couldn't be faulted, although the service was a little hit and miss at times. Slow to take our order and offer drinks at first but when it speeded up it was fine apart from once being asked if I'd finished my second course whilst I still had food on my plate and my knife and fork still apart, while I took a sip of wine! The staff did tend to clear your dishes away the minute you had finished eating - a little bit daunting at times but it didn't spoil our dining experience really. Don't let this report put you off. We would certainly stay at the Royal again, we did love our stay there.
