I liThe hotel is really nice. Unfortunately there were a few issues with the plumbing in the bathroom. Luckily we stayed on the top floor, but was still quite noisy from the bar on the ground floor until quite late. Breakfast was good, but we didn't eat in the evening at the

Hard to know where to start, but it is important to start with saying the staff of the hotel, from the Managers (Chris & Lucy) all the way to the restaurant or front-desk staff were kind, interesting, attentive to our needs, engaging and well informed about the region and things

Response from Royal O, General Manager at The Royal Oak Hotel
Responded yesterday
Thank you for taking the time to post a review on your recent stay at The Royal Oak. It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed the atmosphere here at the Hotel and thought our service was good. We are sorry that we fell short of your expectations with regards to your room maintenance and would ask that you contact the Hotel to let us know what room you stayed in and what the issues were, It would be also beneficial if you could at the same time give us more information regarding your meals so we could then pass on your feedback to the Head chef so he investigate further. If you return to the area we would look forward to seeing you again and showing you that The Royal Oak can produce good food and good rooms.

Is there sufficient parking?
Parking in Welshpool is all about understanding the one-way system. You will probably miss the entrance the first couple of times. I would sugest parking by the information centre and walking around the centre on foot first - this should help you to understand the layout and the pitfalls - if you miss the entrance, it's a big loop to go back to the information centre car park and start again. A map of Welshpool may not help.The one bugbear is the traffic lights just after Morrison's if you come in from the airport. If you do decide to take a walk around, I would suggest doing so either in the evening or before lunch - it's one quirky place (there's onwhere quite like it, that's for sure)

Is it necessary to reserve parking please?
Thank you for your question,Our car park is on a first come first served basis. During busy times of the day the car park can get full but generally speaking during check in times there should be spaces. There is a large town car park opposite the rear of the Hotel.

"We were in Room 112, (where HM The Queen used the bathroom!) A very posh room!"
"Rooms vary in size but are well appointed and the bathrooms well designed"
"If you have limited mobility request a room on the first floor. Steps to the second are a bit steep."
"The rooms on the front (road) side of the hotel are extremely noisy."
"202 had the dodgy bed!"
US$92 - US$177 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
