I organised a meal for a group of 25 people which was held in the Powys room. It is an excellent venue, the staff are friendly & extremely helpful & the meal was absolutely superb & reasonably priced. All 25 were very impressed with the meal & want me to arrange another one at the Royal Oak soon !

We recently stayed for the third time at The Royal Oak in Welshpool. It's a lovely place - clean, cosy and comfortable with masses of history. Recently refurbished and with plenty of modern touches. The breakfast is excellent and the staff without exception have been friendly and helpful. It's a great base from which to explore this beautiful area.

I have stayed at the Royal Oak once before and as such it was not a 'new' experience for me. However, I would say that the rooms are clean and fresh and apart from the ugly label on the hair drier saying it was faulty, the room was very nice.
