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. The perfect stay for a cold January - Sunday lunch...

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.

We thought (wrongly) that the hotel couldn't be as good as hoped based on what we had paid. We arrived in the midst...
