We were welcomed and the receptionist didn't bat an eyelid with our paddles and bedraggled appearance from a days canoeing down the River Wye. Our rooms were of a good size and very comfortable and the meals were excellent. We were a group of six and everyone complemented the food. Would go back to properly investigate the area.

Location is good but needs a step up in the service levels for certain, the shower was only luke warm and there was a distinct lack of large towels, the breakfast buffet was adequate but the restaurant menu was typically "chain fayre", the bar had only one cognac in stock and that was a mediocre item as well. The room... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your comments. As we are part of the Old English Inn chain we do offer a branded menu for both breakfast and lunch and dinner, all three of which go down very well with majority of our guests as other reviews indicate. Our breakfast a la carte menu is particular varied. The room rate of... More

Wonderful food. We visited twice during our rainy stay in Ross in Wye. Once for coffee and cake. Once for supper. This place is Dog friendly and child friendly. They offer Great service as well as Great food. Chilled atmosphere. Highly recommend for a relaxed and tasty family friendly meal.

The location is excellent with nice views from the terrace balcony. Staff friendly and room was clean.Older rooms (ours was No. 18) are more boarding house that hotel (small, creaky floors, rather tired, worn feel to corridors where there are lots of buckets and brooms in the morning) No real lounge but big bar. Busy breakfast with good service.

Dear Guest Thank you for reviewing your recent stay. The Royal is a very old building and with that comes quirky features and creaky floor boards and olde worlde furniture. Since our refurbishment in 2014 which did retain the Old English feel rather than choosing the modern contemporary approach we have only received positive comments regarding the new environment. Good... More

My wife and I wanted a short break and chose The Royal Hotel as we liked the description on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. The hotel was great. Brilliant view of the Wye from our room. Room was great. Breakfast was lovely and the staff friendly and helpful.

Stayed for one night only but could happily have stayed for longer. The only drawback for us was the treads on the stairs in the newer area were a little too narrow. Our room was extremely comfortable as were the beds because we didn't wake up once! Breakfast was part buffet/part freshly cooked and excellent.

Great few days at this hotel. We had room No 40 which had patio doors which gave a fabulous view across the river and the valley. Lovely room, clean and a very comfortable bed. The food was also good and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for one night, at the start of our honeymoon. I think the hotel upgraded our room, as we had lovely views over the river and surrounding countryside. They also gave us a free bottle of wine with our evening meal. The building is attractive, with stunning views over the Wye, and a terrace with plenty of seating,... More
