A family wedding reception was being held here so it was the obvious choice to stay. A totally satisfying stay it was too. The food was fantastic as were the staff and the room fantastic too. Would highly recommend for those who want that little extra in their stay.

My dad had his small bespoke wedding reception at the hotel this weekend and everything was absolutely perfect. The drinks on arrival, the meal, the service, the setting, the accommodation. We hope to visit and stay on many more occasions and would recommend to anyone

Great hotel, excellent accommodation and very helpful staff that made time to assist us even though there were Christmas parties which meant that it was bursting at the seams with very jovial customers. Parking was a problem initially as the private car park was full due to the party goers, however the receptionist kept an eye on it and when...

A lovely and welcoming place to stay. The hotel has been completely refurbished since my previous stay. Friendly and professional staff and nothing too much bother for them. Lovely breakfast in the morning. Restaurant a bit expensive in the evening - not used to paying £7 for a dessert in very rural mid Wales.

For many years we have been visiting The Royal Oak and it has seemed quite reasonable but our last visit we noticed quite a large price increase on the rooms ! The rooms are the same and the hotel seems to operate the same way so why such a large jump in pricing ?

All members of staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The bedroom was compact but contained everything we needed and the bathroom was bright and modern. It was a very short distance to Powis Castle which is the main attraction in the locality.
