Good size room and nicely furnished. Being on the High Street its very central for Ross on Wye and I used it as a base to tour Herefordshire and the Forest of Dean. Food and service were good both breakfast and evening. Its dog friendly and they're also allowed in the bar and library room which is a bonus.

It's understandable as to why is booked out. The atmosphere and indoor areas and lovely, the beer selection good and the food v tasty. I can see why...

3 of us stayed here as a stopover on the way to Celtic Manor. Spacious family room comfortably accommodated 3 guys. Great friendly welcome, and fitted us into the restaurant despite not having a reservation on a busy Saturday night. The restaurant and bar are clearly a big hit with the locals as both were very busy. Good hearty but...

This was altered to 7.45 but though on time we weren't served till about 8.30. On arrival the sewer smell in the passages was very off putting...

We stayed at the Kings Head for 1 night, the room was clean and comfortable, everything you would wish for, was provided and the steak I enjoyed was cooked to perfection, my wife being a little off colour, asked just for scrambled eggs for her dinner and although not on the menu, was served without a problem. Breakfast was very...

The King’s Head is a lovely place to stay. If you’ve never been before, it’s worth knowing that it is tucked away on the street that runs behind Ross-on-Wye’s ancient Market House. The car park is through a narrow archway just after the pub. There is a covered section inside a former warehouse. You can enter the pub from the...

We stayed here whilst in Ross for a friend's 50th. Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel authentic with many of its original features. Room spacious and clean with comfy big bed. We also had an air con unit in room. Great breakfast. All in all to be recommended and would choose to book here again if needed.
