We arrived later than expected but Rob and all the staff made us very welcome and looked after us all weekend. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant, I had the butternut squash bake and my girlfriend had the aubergine curry and both meals were excellent. This is one of an excellent "Old English Inn" collection. We can't wait...

The Royal Hotel has an excellent location and the staff, particularly the restaurant staff are attentive and delightful. We had a quick one night stop-over at this hotel but would thoroughly recommend it, and we would definitely return.

Arrived Friday evening and received a warm welcome. Our room was more than adequate and found the squeaky floor boards added to the fun of a house of that age. Food was superb in a lovely dining room. We had room service Saturday night and nothing was too much trouble. All the staff gave us service with a smile. Hopefully...

The hotel is conveniently placed within the town but with excellent parking. Our room was very good, although not for the infirm as it was up a narrow windy staircase. The bar area is big but cosy and when we were there was lit by a roaring log fire. The view from the bar terrace looks over the Wye valley...

We went to a wedding reception on Sat 31 Jan at this hotel. Th food was very good and served HOT. The staff were cheerful and very helpful. Very well organized. The evening event was in the function room which was a tight squeeze but made it very intimate. The buffet was excellent. Limited car parking only draw back.
