We absolutely love staying at this hotel. The rooms have beautiful views, the food is lovely and we often take books along and read on the veranda overlooking the river. This is one of the most relaxing hotels we've stayed in and the only one that we repeatedly go back to at least once or twice a year. There are...

It is so nice to find a hotel that really is as good as people make out! From check in to check out everything was perfect. Full of olde worlde charm and character, spotlessly clean, staff in abundance who go out of their way to help, we could not find fault. The rooms are excellent, could do with king size...

Stayed one night in a single room (6) on business. Every detail was perfect. The rooms even have proper keys that work (instead of magnetic cards that don't)! Bar and restaurant also excellent and clearly popular with locals. Highly recommended.

As we're going to Dinner in Ross on Wye we decided to stay over so we could both have a drink! My partner suggested the Royal as he had been to the bar and thought it looked nice. I booked online with a booking site but would recommend you use their website as they offer the same great prices. We...

As this is one of my locals I will probably be called biased. It's a great place, good food, good wine and beer, great staff and wicked views. What more could you want? Just the place to while away a couple of hours, get fed and sink a few pints.

We stayed at the Royal for one night and had a wonderful time. The hotel is fantastic and the staff are amazing. Perfectly situated for wandering around the beautiful town of Ross on Wye and for taking in the views. There's a lovely atmosphere throughout the hotel, busy but friendly.

A great view out across the river Wye and the hills beyond. We called in for afternoon tea and cake in the bar which were served efficiently by the friendly bar lady. In warmer weather the terrace here is a lovely place to relax.
