The staff were cooperative and pleasant, decor was fine and food great. Rooms were very comfortable with super pillows. Super service in the bar and restaurant. Great old Inn with great charm and character.

Stopped off at Welshpool looking for lunch on our journey to North Wales and luckily chose The Royal Oak. Beautiful decor, friendly staff and the BEST Sunday Roast I've ever had in a restaurant. Just see my photo to appreciate the awesomenesd of it.

The hotel has been refurbished to a high standard. Comfortable The only downside was that the room was very warm even when the window is open, then the traffic noise from outside was loud. I would recommend this hotel

I stayed at this hotel while on a motorbike trip around Wales. Excellent central location in Welshpool with secure off street parking. I had a very nice single room with bathroom. The main areas of the building appeared to have been recently upgraded. Good full breakfast. All the staff were very welcoming. Good hotel for business or pleasure.
