Stayed one night at the newly refurbished Royal Hotel. I have never been to this area before, but what a treat it was. The hotel was looking good after its refurbishment. The weather was superb so we sat on the lovely big terrace and had some lovely bar bites to go with our drinks, olives and cheese straws these were... More

We stayed at the Royal just after it had reopened. Having read reviews beforehand it was clear that it was in need of a facelift, and it's certainly had one. Seems to be completed renoavated and repainted throughout. Well designed and nice colour schemes throughout the reception area as well as the rooms. Good attentive staff on reception and in... More

We visited here this evening as a group of friends. This was my first visit since the much needed refurb. The bar area itself is lovely, bright and airy. The outside balcony area looked pleasant, however as it was a warm summer evening was packed with no where to sit. We ordered drinks, slightly overpriced but within reason and food... More

I have stayed at the Royal many times, the last about a year ago, since then they have been busy refurbing and for the money I think this hotel is great value, polite staff and a good breakfast make this a good option if you want or need to stay in Ross.

Old fashioned hotel with lots of character in a town centre position but with lovely views over the river Wye. Refurbishment taking place. Great breakfast if a little slow with service. We did not eat in the evening in the restaurant. Cosy bar with a real fire and friendly staff. Ample parking. Our room was massive with a comfortable bed... More

Went here to eat- waited 40 minutes for order to be taken, food took over an hour to arrive after being told 3 times over 25 minutes that they were plating ours up! Tables around us arrived after and served before. When the food did arrive it was poor and not worth the price tags- very low end pub grub... More

I went here for coffee and a cake this week. The weather was lovely so we sat outside on the balcony where you have beautiful views over the river and countryside. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The coffee came with some melt in the mouth fudge - delicious - and the cake was good too! Will definitely go... More

We visited The Royal Hotel on Wednesday evening with our daughter. It has been refurbished since our last stay early in the year. It was a beautiful evening so we sat outside on the patio to eat our meal. The views over the river were stunning but unfortunately we couldn't say the same about the food and service. Service was...
