Nice, bright, clean room with a Queen sized bed, spotless modern en suite bathroom, writing desk and chair, tea and coffee making facilities plus free WiFi. Also a very nice and reasonably priced restaurant serving well prepared local produce. The hotel is in the centre of Ross-on-Wye and has off-street parking. The bar is a good, friendly place for a...

Hands down the best hotel me and my partner have ever visited. We stayed over as we were going to a friends wedding and did not expect the hotel to be as amazing as it is! Room was lovely and clean and the bathroom was great. Downstairs the bar was very friendly and a nice atmosphere to have a drink.... More

We visited family and stayed overnight in one of the hotels superior rooms. It's an ancient building so the flooks are creaky and quirky but our room was excellent. Large and we'll furnished with a nice bath and shower. It was very clean and the queen sized bed very comfy. Our evening meal was excellent, breakfast okay, nothing to complain... More

Stayed three nights with the dinner, B&B deal and had the best T bone steak I can recall: as for the asparagus............wonderful.

6 of us met for lunch travelling from all over. The kings head ticked the boxes. We ate in the bar area, lovely low beams. Local wye valley beers, great food, good service, would recommend. Parking, easy access, central location, bookable restaurant, thanks for the enjoyable lunch.

Couldn't be better placed in the centre of Ross and for seeing the whole area. The room was quite small [but it is an old building] and well appointed with a walk in shower in a modern bathroom. good car... More

We arrived on a Saturday at 12 to check in, the gentleman on arrival was pleasant enough and we were happy that we were able to have our rooms straight away which they didn't have to do. The pub and restaurant down stairs was decorated lovely. The rooms are beautiful and very unique, nothing is straight given the age of... More

Hotel is in a perfect position in the centre of town. There’s a small car park situated at the rear of the hotel, but you would need to get there early as space is limited and parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. We had a superior room which was fine, although there was nothing superior about the view from... More

Lovely lovely hotel, bar gets full of interesting locals, serves Fizzy Friday, 15 quid for a bottle of prosecco, does cocktails, dinner was lush and plentiful, all service is with a smile, nothing seems too much trouble. Room comfy, but when we come back I'll ask to avoid room 15!! My thighs should be able to crack walnuts now!! Phew!

Thank you so much for leaving your review and the two photos. The photo from room 15 is of course, the view from one of our rear facing rooms. Unfortunately, being an old listed building it’s not practicable to install a lift. However, we do have some really nice rooms on the first floor, which of course can be requested... More
