Lovely little place in centre of Welshpool. Welcomed by extremely friendly receptionist - very professional. Room is ok in my opinion but noisy due to being on the front overlooking the busy street.

I am quite a frequent customer to the royal oak and I always enjoy being in there looks lovely and modern. Staff all friendly the food is great. Plenty of space if you have kids always a great buzz/bustle in there. Well worth a visit if you have never been.

My daughters surprise baby shower was held in the function room. I can not praise all the staff enough. Every thing was taken care of, the hall looked beautiful and the food (afternoon tea) was outstanding. Every guest commented on how impressed they were. I would highly recommend this venue. Thank you so much to Mark and colleagues.

Called in for lunch en route to Lake Vyrnwy. Pleasant staff and the most wonderful beer battered halloumi in brioche bun. Very reasonable and great tasting food. Loved it. The restaurant wasn't too busy so we were served quickly.

The TV had Sky and could be swiveled so you could...

Food and service excellent. Room good and quiet. Bathroom a little tired although shower excellent. DIfficult to find the hotel car park without satnav. The bmap I was given when I left the car to find out directions would have helped if it was on the hotel website.

Although only able to stay one night, as I was on a business trip, it was an extremely pleasant experience, from the warm welcome at the reception, to the well furnished and cozy room, the great staff and great food at the restaurant, the very peaceful sleep, the delicious breakfast buffet and the attentive breakfast staff and the warm send-off...
