“Fine but wouldn't rush back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2007

Just come back from an overnight stay in the King's Head in Ross on Wye. The hotel was just a bed for the night really for a wedding nearby and it was fine. The staff were very nice and accommodating and there's a friendly atmosphere pervading the hotel and it's downstairs bar. The rooms and bathrooms are clean (apart from the windows) but are really nothing special. The hotel could use a bit of refurb if it wanted to move up a level but for a 2** hotel it's fine. There's parking round the back. We paid £75 including breakfast (which we missed so can't comment on that). Probably would not return. We had a late meal (by Ross standards) at 10pm in China Boy Jo - pretty good.

We recently stayed at the Kings Head for a night when attending a friends wedding in town.
Efficent reception staff allowed us to book in at 11.30. Room 11 fronting the street had an old four poster bed and large en suite bathroom. On returning from the wedding, we found the room was comfortable but suffered from street noise which kept my wife awake for a while. No trouble for me - out like a light, snored for England and awoke with a start - my wife was trying to strangle me. I had not realised that she disliked me so much.
A pleasant cooked breakfast. Nice staff. Can be a bit awkard to find, even with satnav and the car park gets full. All in all , a very pleasant hotel and we would book again - in seperate bedrooms!.

Stayed August 2006

We only went here for lunch but they took ages seating us, taking our order and for our food to come through. The woman taking our order didn't even know what was on the menu, the food was meagre portions and we had to send things back. I don't know about staying here as we didn't but be careful if you come here for food.
