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

Recently stayed two nights in this small hotel right in the town centre in Welshpool. While the hotel was very central and convenient for everywhere in the town, my room overlooked the town centre cross and as a consequence, was rather noisy - and even more so, late at night, or in the early hours of the morning at weekends....

although I have never stayed here over night (as I live in the area) I often pop into the Oak for a coffee and have to say its one of my favourite places to go. The staff are always welcoming and friendly, and the coffee is great. overall, great place would definitely commend

We were travelling with our toddler and arrived late in the evening to find we had to climb to the top of the hotel up two huge flights of stairs. We were met by a tiny room, the colour scheme of which was very misjudged; it has obviously been renovated on a budget. The blinds were also broken and wouldn't... More

We have been regularly drinking in the Royal Oak for about two years. During this time the place seems to be becoming more and more shabby ,does not look the same place as the photographs shown on their website. Light bulbs often need replacing in the coffee lounge. Sometimes tables can be in need of clearing of glasses and coffee... More

Second time I've stayed at the Royal Oak, both times really good. Staff are really friendly and helpful, rooms are good and beds comfortable. Good range of beer in the bar. Good breakfast. Good coffee to takeaway. We called back for lunch after the site visit and we had an excellent lunch, glad we did.

Difficult for arrival by car till you know where the entrance to the car park is at the back. Very obliging and helpful staff who were prepared to accommodate my dog even though he was not expected, thank you. Very busy pub but as a result of the Christmas closedown and the staff coped and we were not inconvenienced. Nice... More
