The Kings Head Hotel is a lovely place to stay. We stopped off for just one night on our way back home from a festival. We had a 'superior' room and it was lovely & spacious. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The front of house staff were lovely, as were the bar staff. Didn't have an evening meal... More

A lovely, very old building with great character right in the centre of Ross with its own parking. Everything was clean, good fresh food and pleasant helpful staff. We didn't expect breakfast as this was not mentioned when we booked but it was included and served up until 10am, ideal.

Stayed 2 nights and couldn't fault great staff, very keen to oblige. We asked for extra milk and icepacks to be frozen - this was no problem in the slightest. We had an evening meal in the restaurant out the back. Super! The hotel is pretty central to all shops and close to several walks.

Stayed here two nights. Our room was large, clean and traditionally furnished. Bed and pillows were excellent. Hotel wifi was excellent. The shower room was also clean, but very small indeed and the plumbing was the noisiest I have ever come across. There was also a noise problem in the bedroom. Our room (No 10) looked out on the High... More

The Kings Head is an excellent place to stay. My sister and I stayed 5 nights here, and not once were we disappointed. The hotel has real character: winding staircases, creaky floors etc.... But then what else would you expect from a 15th century building?! The breakfast is first class, all freshly cooked to order with local produce, as is... More

Booked into this hotel on impulse, finding ourselves in Ross on Wye. Great hotel, friendly staff, comfy bed although other furnishings were a little dated. We also had a room right at the top in the roof space which was quite a climb up winding stairs that were at least 6ins higher on the outside of the curve than on... More

This hotel has a very convenient family 'suite' consisting of interconnecting double and twin rooms with a shared shower room. One member of our party was a little tall for the low beam in the shower room and found one or two aspects of it awkward. However, the staff are very friendly and the breakfasts excellent. it is also extremely... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night whilst walking the Wye Valley. We had a lovely superior twin room and we were very comfortable. The owner was friendly and helpful and we had a lovely evening meal there. Breakfast was excellent with plenty to fill up on for a long days walk. Smashing pastries!! I would recommend this... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Had a lovely stay. We had a superior room which was really nice, very clean and spacious. Breakfast was wonderful, plenty of choice, cooked to order and served by very jolly staff. Restaurant is very nice and food delicious. Would definitely recommend. Had no problem finding a space in the car park. Would love to return

We have had Sunday lunch here a few times, and it keeps getting better. All local produce, sourced by the chef, great cooking and presentation. Prices are reasonable main courses are £10-£15 great value for good quality food. I would recommend this a place to eat when you are in Ross on Wye
