stayed one night. clean nicely furnished room. quite spacious. the room was very warm when we got there but there was a fan, which was quite noisy though. very good shower but no hand soap on the sink! maybe an oversight by housekeeping? luckily we had our own. Don't think carpets in bathrooms are appropriate. tv channels were very limited... More

Stayed one night - dingy room at the back of the hotel with a broken blind, overlooking a brightly lit hotel corridor below and close to an extractor fan. Bright light all night making sleeping difficult. Breakfast was average - a weird mix of help yourself and service - when faced with a queue for the single slow toaster, the... More

Called in just before 3pm just for a toastie and chips. The "chef" obviously leaves exactly 3pm, as our food arrived cold and under toasted. The chips were also missing. Sent food back and waitress returned with our cooked half eaten dinner,now warm but completely unpresentable, to say she hoped it was ok as she had to do it herself!... More

This was a stopover on my way to the mid Wales cOast. It's an interesting old building, clean and friendly and very basic but right in the heart of a busy town centre with all the issues that brings. Noise - You can't blame the revellers at tables outside for having a great noisy time into the night but it... More

The website says - Traditional Welsh Hospitality, Award Winning Real Ales, Fine Wines & Great Food and the marketing had clearly worked because I booked us in and so I really wanted to like the Royal Oak. It has a great location and parts of the hotel have obviously been refreshed recently (the bar and restaurant and rear entrance/function room... More

Nice looking, but medioker town hotel that's a bit run down. The toilet wasn't working, the room was small and needed an update and it was very humid. Though the staff at the hotel was most helpful and service minded. The restaurant, though, wasn't functioning well. Breakfast by buffet, with a helpful manager. Not a place you long to get... More

We stayed here for a Saturday evening. Our welcome at reception was poor. The room was very small though adequately furnished. Our evening meal in the restaurant was good though they had run out of steaks at 8pm. The bar was frequented by non-resident locals who were mostly drunk and shouting "oggi oggi oggi" etc.etc. The room was noisy from... More

A pleasant stay, clean room, excellent staff, room service and food perfect. Bed was a little lumpy but that could have been the intense mugginess of that evening that stopped me from settling. Signal issues prevented telephone calls being made from my room, internet service was weak and basic TV channels working Bbc1, 2 ITV 3 and ch 4. The... More
