Have enjoyed some great lunches here over the summer and loved the setting, sitting near the large windows overlooking the River Wye. Plenty of choice, fast and friendly service, tasty food at good prices. I've found the staff helpful, and each meal here this year has been excellent. The hotel has a formal dining room and a more casual restaurant... More

We stayed at The Royal for two nights and were very pleasantly surprised. The room itself was clean, spacious and well-presented, with everything needed for a short stay - TV, hairdryer, room service, tea and coffee making, iron/ironing board, toiletries and free WiFi. Despite being close to the top of the stairs and the main walk way (we were in... More

A well located hotel for both the town and beautiful surrounding countryside. We booked a 'room with a view' - the view was really lovely, but up four flights of stairs and no lift! The room was pleasant enough and had the unusual advantage of two comfortable chairs. (Why do so many double/twin hotel rooms only provide on easy chair?).... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your comments. As we are a grade II listed building we unfortunately cannot add a lift to our facilities. We do hold extra chests of drawers on site which are available to guests on request. I will certainly share your feedback regards breakfast with our morning staff as the team are trained to remove breakfast... More

We booked on line. From arrival to departure the next morning we were treated with professional but friendly courtesy. Nothing was too much trouble. The room (Marchioness) was like something from a film set. Total and utter grandeur. We would stay again.

Good hotel in an excellent location. Nice clean rooms with a good bar / restaurant and great breakfast. . There is a terrace area for meals and drinks with a spectacular view of the wye valley, that is a real plus point for the hotel. It is a shame that the terrace has started to deteriorate recently with rotting handrails... More

This hotel is in a very picturesque location with a great pub down the street. The pub in the hotel had no atmosphere unless you sat outside. Our room was satisfactory if a bit dated, but not a comfy bed. It creaked every time we moved. Good breakfast provided.

Dear Guest Thank you for reviewing your recent stay and glad that you enjoyed your breakfast experience. Our bar area is usually buzzing but of course guests do gravitate to our terrace area outside when the sun decides to shine. Sally & Matthew More

We have stayed here several times recently and have never been disappointed, particularly on this occasion when we were upgraded, free of charge, to a room with besuriful views of the countryside and nearby river, the same view as can be seen from the terrace where people gather at lunchtime and evenings. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The location... More

I've been there on 2 consecutive nights; Mon 12 & Tue 13 Sep 2016. The bar staff are friendly and cheerful, service is good, and they are fairly precise. Do be aware that they can charge different prices for a pint of orange juice & lemonade (£2.15 on Monday £3.30 on Tuesday). Monday's Peri chicken was great, and the staff... More

I love the location of this hotel and have been here before and its been good but not excellent. However in mid september I popped in for a quick lunch on the off chance and was very pleasantly surprised. In particular even though there were many people there, the staff at the bar were very efficient, professional and friendly. The... More
