Just returned from a two night stay in this hotel. We were impressed by the location, the comfort of the room, the staff, the food. In fact we could not fault it. We would recommend it to anyone wanting a holiday in this beautiful part of the country.

Stayed with my wife for 4 nights, staff were all very friendly. Ate in the bar the first night and the food was excellent quality. All the breakfasts were delicious and cooked to order. I recommend the eggs benedict. Rooms were clean and the bed was comfy. The only minor point was that the same menu is served in the... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay and everything was great. Food good and varied both in price and selection. Room clean and spacious, we had room 15 on the front overlooking the river and valley. I think they class these as Deluxe and you may have to pay more per night. Car park is not large so you may... More

I was a little worried as some reviews aren't great but I didn't need to be. The hotel is really nice and the refurb is great. It has a lovely clean, well kept feel when you go in. The bar is very modern and really nice to either relax, work or meet friends. The balcony off the bar has exceptional... More

An absolutely superb location, unless you prefer traffic clogged and high rise buildings! Why, oh why, are over 200 characters required, sometimes brevity is best and I certainly will not be submitting any more reviews to tripadvisor

This Hotel was visited by Charles Dickens back in 1867-68, that gives you an idea how old it is. The room we had was very large, with the most beautiful view, looking over the river, and way beyond. The bed was very comfortable, and we had no complaints about the food, it was delicious. The staff were very friendly, and... More

We are fortunate to live 100 metres from one of the landmarks of Ross-on-Wye and so we are able to often pop round for a drink or a meal with friends. Set high on the cliff top of the Wye Valley with outstanding views over the river and beyond, we often watch the sun set over the hills of Wales... More
