As a group of six we booked in advance two single rooms and two doubles with twin beds. On arrival we were informed that the two double rooms were actually fitted with double beds, which was unacceptable, however no effort was made by the hotel to rectify this problem, or to apologise for their mistake. They seemed to be more... More

Nice hotel with spacious rooms. Carpet had stains if I was completely fussy but didn't bother me. Reasonably priced with a bar. Breakfast was ok - nothing special but nice enough. Staff were friendly and pleasant.

This was a last minute decision, but one we are so glad we made. There was not one member of staff without a smile on their face, each person we saw fell over themselves to be helpful. Even the lady cleaning the rooms offered to carry our bags down for us. The receptionist couldn't have been more helpful, restaurant staff... More

We stayed close by and popped in here on two occasions for lunch. The food was lovely and not'pub grub'like i expected. The homemade lasagne and burger were both delicious and lovely and certainly homemade! The lamb shank with rosemary fell off the bone and not at all fatty. Great for lunchtime food

We were staying near Welshpool and booked to dine at the Royal Oak on the Sunday evening, all other suitable alternatives not being open on a Sunday evening in early May. This turned out to be a good choice. The menu is uncomplicated but affords a good choice. We respectively had the lamb shank and fish and chips and were... More

I forgot to find out her name but would love to say thank you for the service she gave to me, she had brown hair,... More

A pal of mine and myself just returned from a one night stay - we have stayed there before. Beds comfortable, staff pleasant and obliging, food and drink first class. An ideal place to stay if visiting the Welsh coast or Welsh border or Mid Wales.

We were asked if we wanted to reserve a table for dinner when we checked in. We asked if it was necessary - we prefer to have the opportunity to see a menu before deciding - but were told we should book if we wanted to eat as "Saturday night is our busiest time". We turned up for dinner at... More
