My wife and I attended a wedding in Much Marcle recently and The Royal Oak was suggested as a nice place to stay. We found The Royal Oak to be a traditional inn with tons of history and character. The staff where very helpful, the room was spacious & clean

A pleasant, friendly welcome when we arrived, Room at the back of the Royal Oak to park our landrover. Rooms spacious, could do with a bit of a makeover, but nice and clean. Breakfast was basic, no fruit and rather slow service, but adequate.

This is a traditional English family run inn in the centre of Ledbury with a well stocked bar and a pleasant restaurant. The oldest part of the hotel is 15th century.

The best thing about this place is the staff.. super friendly, happy help and knowledgable anbout the town and area. Its a very old hotel and certainly the owners have a challenge to offer a good service in such a building, regardless of the challenge they certainly do deliver, our room was clean and the bed was super comfortable, plenty...

I stayed in the Royal Oak in 1967 when I visited the UK on holiday. Then it was owned by Jim and Beryl McIlmurray, a lovely couple. It was everything we would have expected from a quaint English Inn, quality service, excellent friendly public bar, rooms to die for and the food was the finest home cooked we ever had.... More

My children, sister, wife and parents stayed here for two nights in late April. The Royal Oak's rooms are rather better than the ground floor would suggest. The ground floor is just a pub, but the rooms are pleasant. Delicious bacon for breakfast. Donna was very friendly and helpful as was the lady who served us breakfast and is studying... More
