My sister in law booked our accomodation for 4 nights , when we walked a section of the Wye Valley Walk. First impressions were that it was just not quite so. The hotel is , I believe , an old coaching inn dating back a few hundred years , bags of character and with umpteen extensions. It's not for you... More

We booked dinner,bed and breakfast for two nights online and stayed on a Friday and Saturday night. Our first impressions were a little disappointing as we walked from the hotel carpark through the back yard into reception. The carpark should be better marked with parking spaces clearly identified. The receptionist was efficient and we went to our room up two... More

Although my husband was expecting a superior room with a shower only at the back of the hotel, we arrived around 6pm and got a room at the front with a shower over the bath. There were no other rooms available. So, I hardly slept with the noise from the creaky floor above, in the corridor and most of all... More

Popped in to the Kings Head the other day for some lunch whilst visiting Ross on Wye. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated to some fine hospitality by the young lady who served us. She was talkative and very helpful even though she was quite busy. Our lunch was very good indeed and... More

If you like quaint and quirky, this is the place for you. Old hotel with original features. Comfortable rooms. Excellent restaurant. Courteous and efficient staff all round. In centre of old market town. Have stayed here twice now and would definitely return.

Very old Hotel with historical interest situated in the middle of the town. A creaky building which adds to its character and has the added benefit of its own car park. The room allocated was spacious and very clean with its ensuite bathroom. All staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient and a hearty Herefordshire breakfast was consumed with relish. Wish... More

My husband and I stayed at The Kings Head with our daughter and her husband for one night after a family reunion nearby. We had requested Room 6, which we knew to be a great room and we were not disappointed. Our daughter & husband had Room 10, which was a super room too. Although it was a Sunday evening... More

Booked online and even with good reviews places can be a gamble but room, staff and evening meal all excellent! Also slap bang in the middle of Ross so easy to go and walk off the excesses afterwards!
