Nice Hotel, terrible restaurant
The Royal Highland Hotel was a nice place to stay. If they give you free vouchers to the adjoining restaurant do not waste your time. Terrible service at the Ash restaurant, as we intended to spend some time and money there. Were treated poorly right from the beginning, had one drink (poorly poured beer) then left. Checked reviews afterwards and they said the same thing.

Nice hotel in a great location
Conveniently located next to the train station and a short walk to the bus station. Our room was neat and the beds we’re comfortable. The grand staircase is beautiful. Breakfast was a bit pricey and if you want the “hot” options, they take your order before you’re seated and will bring it out to you. The cold options like cereal are available through self serve. Found that a bit odd. I’m more used to getting a buffet style breakfast where you can easily grab another piece of bacon later if you decide that you want a little more. There’s no room fridge.

Handy for the station.
The hotel is a little dated and tired in places. The yellow wall paper in the bedroom is not easy on the eye. However the staff both at reception and in the restaurant were amazing, so friendly. The food from the restaurant was exceptional. Breakfast service let it down slightly as apparently the chef is strict and wont serve hot food until 730am despite service being from 7am. The breakfast food was ok but not a patch on the quality from the main restaurant. I was lucky enough to get one of the few parking spaces out front. I would stay again.
