Hotel very nice, rooms good, food good, staff pleasant and helpful. Beds were clean and comfortable. Dining room was beautiful, quite traditional with paintings etc. The food in the dining room was good and presented beautifully and the waiting staff were helpful and efficient. We spent a lot of time in the hotel as the weather was bad when we...

we had an early drink and meal on a Friday evening. The views are spectacular and the food is good value. Don't expect high dining and put up with kids running around but otherwise good value. I had steak and my wife had salmon which both meals were well cooked to order and were well presented.

Booked this through Old English Inns on a very good deal for two nights. It would have been worth it at twice the price! Lovely large twin room (although over bath shower) with beautiful view and small balcony. Proper English breakfast or buffet style included which was also top class. Service was helpful and friendly. In fact we ended up...

Dear Dave, Sounds like you grabbed one of the Old English Inn mailer offers - they are certainly worth subscribing on our website for as we run many throughout the year and are always great value! Rob, Lead Receptionist

This is the second time we have stayed here and it was really good. The staff are super attentive, the whole place is immaculate and the bedrooms are large and spacious (if you go for the superior ones). The beds were really comfy and the breakfast was the best I've had in a hotel for ages. A great place to...

Went here for lunch yesterday, excellent food at reasonable prices, some great views from the hotel too, did not stay here though so can only comment to n the restaurant, but if you are looking for a nice meal if you are in the area, I would recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for four nights over the Bank Holiday weekend and were not disappointed. Pleasant room with a view over the side garden and towards the river. Ate in the hotel on the first night, chicken curry and a Mac & Cheese, both very tasty. Had Sunday lunch, which was too much on the plate. Could do with offering...

Dear Guests, I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us over the bank Holiday weekend. We certainly have hearty portion sizes, but do also run our 'value menu', which offers smaller scale dishes than our main menu. Look forward to seeing you both again in the future. Rob, Lead Receptionist

We booked two double rooms for a family reunion and the Royal was perfectly located for this occasion. The rooms were as to be expected and had views of the River Wye and to the hills beyond and yet was only a minutes stroll to the centre of Ross. Dinner was very good and served by very friendly staff as...

We visit Ross a few times a year, and we've always found it hard to find good food, we were here on this may bank holiday 2017, we had our usual walk about and went into a couple of pubs hoping that either the menu or the management had changed but everything was the same, the menus was very unappetising....

Dear Jacqui, I am so pleased to hear you decided to give us a try! It's been about three years since our interior refurbishment, and with our brand new terrace for 2017 I can't think of a better spot to enjoy lunch out, especially as the sun is starting to make an appearance! Looking forward to welcoming you back to...

Great place to have a bar, restaurant or just a drink. The decking area has the most relaxing views of the river wye. Staff are efficient but are rushed off their feet. They have parking on site but also there is parking very close by free for up to two hours. My grandchildren did have a nice time but there...

We went as a group of 12 to play golf in Herefordshire with The Royal Hotel as our base. The staff were very friendly, the food was good, the rooms comfortable. There was definitely a need for more storage space, there wasn't really enough room for two people's clothes! But apart from that, a very enjoyable stay. Thank you.
