My partner and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at The Royal. We had a deluxe room with river views and it was superb! The staff were friendly, the food was good and the terrace bar really adds that something a little extra to the hotel. Unfortunately, the only downsides were it was quite noisy due to... More

The hotel is well decorated (as from previous reviews... More

The hotel has recently been refurbished to a very good standard. Our ground floor room was perfect overlooking the valley. The terrace overlooking the river Wye is amazing. The staff are all very polite and attentive. Very dog friendly . Had an excellent short stay.

Suggested that I meet friends there and was not disappointed, although none of the veggie options were to my liking the side dishes I chose were huge and tasty and we all enjoyed our meals which arrived promptly and very hot.

We have just arrived home from a lovely two night stay at the Royal Hotel. The room was spotless, plenty of room for the dogs basket and his food and water bowl. The bed was very comfortable, with incredible views of the countryside. The bathroom was well equipped, big bath with rain shower over, lots of hot water. The staff... More

The Royal has amazing views with a beautiful terrace looking out over the Wye valley. Fabulous, friendly staff who really make an effort to make your stay excellent. Fantastic breakfast and beautiful rooms. Definitely the place to stay in Ross if you're looking for a friendly atmosphere and great local knowledge.
