Great hotel, great restaurant, great staff. Highly recommended. Laura on reception was very helpful and we managed to book in by 11.30am. Meal in restaurant and breakfast was delicious. Room could become hot on a warm summers day, Rooms have been recently decorated. An excellent stay and can highly recommend this hotel and restaurant.

Had an evening bar meal here. Home-made pie of the day (beef) looked excellent and my fish and chips was delicious. All served up in a relaxed atmosphere by friendly and professional waiters/waitresses and bar staff.

We stayed at the Royal Oak for one night. Well placed in the town centre and very handy for a pleasant walk to Powis Castle. Good food, good beer and a tasty buffet breakfast. Service was friendly and we would gladly stay there again.

Celebrated our anniversary there. The ambiance, food & wine excellent. I had the oriental chicken, soo tasty & & hubby had ribeye steak which was superb. We finished off by sharing a fruit & marshmallow kebab with a chocolate & strawberry dip. All reasonably priced too. Would definately recommend.

Unfortunately we had to cancel our stay here due to family ill health. The circumstances were totally 'taken on board' by the staff and management and we would like to thank then so very much for their understanding and kindness.

A good hotel, but pricy compared to others of similar standard in the Mid Wales/Shropshire area. Bedroom was good but it was called a 'superior double' so we were expecting something better. I was expecting a bigger/quieter room with a couple of chairs at least. Being in the middle of the town with windows open on a hot night it... More

We visited the Royal Oak having made the reservation at short notice. One of the reasons for selecting Welshpool was the proximity to Powys Castle which we wanted to visit. Other local attractions include a very nice steam railway and the local canal which is great for easy walking. The Royal Oak was especially appealing to us because it is... More
