Stopped in Ross to break the journey home,and popped into this hotel for refreshments. A traditional old hotel wooden panels the lot. Mrs A and myself thought about staying for the night and indeed would have done if the coin had come up heads rather than tales.Would definately go back to stay. Also the only place in the town that... More

We stayed at the Kings Head for one night. It is very central and has private parking. We didn't expect much but were very pleasantly surprised. The room was very well appointed, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom was excellent and there was a very generous tea & coffee making tray. The breakfast is served in a cozy room and... More

After visiting ross last summer and seeing this hotel we decided to book and have a night out here. I booked two rooms for myself husband and 2 friends. However unfortunately my friends mum sadly passed away and my own mum very poorly in hospital. I rang the hotel to ask if I could postpone and explained fully the sad... More

Thank you for leaving your comments. I do apologise if you feel we have been unsympathetic and if I have been any cause of this. However, I do feel that there has been a slight misunderstanding and that the hotel has been both generous and sympathetic towards you. You made a reservation a few weeks ago, for two discounted rooms,... More

We just spent a blustery 3 nights here on half board and were very impressed. It is a very old place so you must expect some quirky bits but overall they have got it just right. Bedrooms have all mod cons - flat screen TV, kettle with free tea & coffee, nice bathrooms with plenty of hot water and huge... More

Stayed for 2 nights in January. There isn't an awful lot to do in Ross on Wye, but it is a nice place for a stroll around, and quite near the forest by car. First impressions were very good, the public areas of the hotel are very charming. We had room 12, which had a double and a single. We... More

Had a two night stay between Christmas and New Year. The hotel is full of character, all the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We ate at the restaurant on both evenings and the food was delicious, breakfast was also very good. The bar area can get busy with non-residents but there is also a lovely library to sit and...

This is the second time we have stayed at the Kings Head and I can highly recommend it. Great nights sleep, lovely warm room, nice breakfast and dogs are welcome in certain rooms and parts of the hotel (our dogs love it!) Looking forward to staying again in 2015.

A last minute stay at this place turned into a nightmare. The room was fine - until we wanted a bottle of water. There was none available in the room so we dialled '0' for reception and a very grumpy proprietor informed us that we couldn't have any. Upon arguing the point, my friend went downstairs to collect the water,... More

I'm sorry your memory is a little hazy on your visit. Initially you booked a room for just your boyfriend as he didn’t want to drive home after drinking. Despite being quoted for a double, you insisted that there would be only one guest staying and paid for a single. After enjoying your meals, drinks at the bar and three... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Decided to go for their DBB deal on the Friday and just BB on Saturday. Dinner was fabulous - serving staff need to understand having 3 serve a table of 6 is excessive when other tables are waiting, however the quality and choice for an inclusive package is really good. Good wine choice, one of... More
