I stayed at The Royal for 1 night for a romantic weekend. The hotel sits at the top of the hill and overlooks the river Wye and the town. We had a fantastic room with a view of the river through a huge window which went from the ceiling to the floor. The room was clean and tidy and the... More

The hotel itself is of a high standard and the rooms are well appointed and the staff are always helpfull. Food is also good with plenty of choice. Breakfast does not disappoint either. The soft boiled eggs were perfect. I look forward to my return.

Had a superior room and it was just as I pictured it. Spacious, well decorated and luxurious. The bed was large and comfortable and the sofa made it feel much more like being at home. The hotel is in a good location and even though it was September we were able to sit outside in the evening to have our... More

A one night quick getaway stay turned into the most pleasant of experiences. This hotel has got what it takes to please me - free parking, fantastic staff, decent food, reasonable bar prices and did I mention the fantastic staff? A breeze through the helpful check in at reception, drop the bags into a really well decorated and spotlessly clean... More

The veranda has fantastic view over a large portion of the Regatta Course and is a lovely setting for a few drinks in the evening. We ate at the hotel both nights, the menu was much to our... More
