Having just returned from a very good weekend break, the Hotel and staff had their hands full with private functions on both nights of our stay and they coped perfectly. The location was outstanding, and the good weather helped, with the outside terrace a comfortable and relaxing place to view the Herefordshire countryside in all it's glory. The young Restaurant...

This week I had a two night stay in a superior room & really enjoyed it. I had a good discounted rate on the room but would have been happy if I paid the full rate. The room was spacious with nice decoration and the shower was hot & refreshing. The balcony of the hotel is the perfect place for...

I stayed at the Royal in August 2015 and would highly recommend to others. Our room (17) was large, very comfortable with breath taking views. The breakfast was excellent too and the restaurant was also lovely in the evening. The bar terrace was lovely for a glass of wine in the sun too! The staff were charming and very helpful....

First visit to The Royal and it was lovely. Great meal with the family and despite being fairly busy we didn't have to wait long for our food. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Also stunning views over Ross on Wye from the balcony.

We stopped over for one night on the way to South Wales! We booked a superior room and was well worth it for the amazing views down to the river! The room was very spacious with a large king size bed! All very nicely decorated! Breakfast was included and was good! Had the full English which was very tasty! !...

Our superior rooms are special in that the views over the Wye valley are second to none and the extra space they offer facilitates relaxing greatly.

Stayed at The Royal for two nights. Its in a beautiful, quiet position and if you book a room with a view, its a beautiful sight over the river Wye and countryside (slightly marred by the by pass - but you can ignore the glimpse of traffic :)). This is a grand old world hotel - you can imagine how...

A really great team who looked after us really well and a good hotel that provides good value for money. We had a large proper family room which had a separate twin room for our two sons. Nothing smart or fancy but we enjoyed our family stay!
