Our room (No 10) looked out on the High...

We also had a room right at the top in the roof space which was quite a climb up winding stairs that were at least 6ins higher on the outside of the curve than on...

This hotel has a very convenient family 'suite' consisting of interconnecting double and twin rooms with a shared shower room. One member of our party was a little tall for the low beam in the shower room and found one or two aspects of it awkward. However, the staff are very friendly and the breakfasts excellent. it is also extremely...

Stayed for 3 nights. Had a lovely stay. We had a superior room which was really nice, very clean and spacious. Breakfast was wonderful, plenty of choice, cooked to order and served by very jolly staff. Restaurant is very nice and food delicious. Would definitely recommend.

We have had Sunday lunch here a few times, and it keeps getting better. All local produce, sourced by the chef, great cooking and presentation. Prices are reasonable main courses are £10-£15 great value for good quality food. I would recommend this a place to eat when you are in Ross on Wye
