First visit to The Royal and it was lovely. Great meal with the family and despite being fairly busy we didn't have to wait long for our food. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Also stunning views over Ross on Wye from the balcony.

We stopped over for one night on the way to South Wales! We booked a superior room and was well worth it for the amazing views down to the river! The room was very spacious with a large king size bed! All very nicely decorated! Breakfast was included and was good! Had the full English which was very tasty! !... More

Stayed at The Royal for two nights. Its in a beautiful, quiet position and if you book a room with a view, its a beautiful sight over the river Wye and countryside (slightly marred by the by pass - but you can ignore the glimpse of traffic :)). This is a grand old world hotel - you can imagine how... More

A really great team who looked after us really well and a good hotel that provides good value for money. We had a large proper family room which had a separate twin room for our two sons. Nothing smart or fancy but we enjoyed our family stay!

We booked a 3 night stay at the Royal to celebrate my semi-retirement but also we had heard good reviews about it's revamp. We were not disappointed the room was spacious, clean and quiet, the staff were great, very welcoming, the food was lovely, we ate on all 3 nights and the only disappointment was on Sunday no Roast dinner...

The Royal Hotel is a great place to stay. Not to expensive in the bar for food or drinks. We had a room in the new part with a river view. Everyone was friendly and helpful. A big plus was the free parking on site. We stayed on a Thursday night and the hotel was full. Even though there were... More

We went to The Royal for an evening meal and it was fabulous. We loved the Royal before the make over, but since they have changed the look made the bar area bigger it is great. All staff very friendly and the food is absolutely gorgeous. Some might say it's a little pricey but I like to pay a bit... More
