Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

My second stay here, was a cosy, clean and cheerful one :) The staff were friendly, the hotel busy and seemingly popular for dining, and so easy to walk to the shops in town, train station, and for appreciating the beautiful hilly countryside surrounding the area!

We had a destination wedding in Welshpool in April 2017. Mark, Laura and Beth from the Royal Oak helped us every step of the way with remote planning including sorting out the wedding package, room bookings for family and friends, and day-of coordination that made our day special and memorable. Thanks Royal Oak for the most lovely experience... plus it's...

Shared a twin room which was well-furnished, and equipped with en-suite bath/shower - all very clean and well prepared. Dinner in the restaurant - both the main course and dessert were beautifully cooked and presented. Members of staff in the hotel and the restaurant were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. I found nothing at all to fault in this establishment;...

A traditional hotel, well located right in the centre of Welshpool. The staff were friendly and helpful and one went out of her way to find some information for us. Options for eating out in Welshpool were limited so we eat dinner in the hotel - the food was good, well presented and reasonably priced. Our room was up two...

A very nice hotel with very friendly staff. The room was quite spacious and very clean. The hotel had private parking which was excellent. The only thing that may be of concern, but did not bother me, is that the hotel did not have a lift.

Very disappointing, tiny room with a single bed. It was a cold April day and the room was hotter than hell, despite the radiators being turned off, forcing me to open the windows and resulting in having to suffer the smell of smokers below the window and the noise of night clubs and bars into the early hours. For a...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry that you had such a disappointing night. We acknowledge that the town was noisy the night you were here due to it being a bank holiday weekend. Unfortunately due to this being a 17th Century building (with listed windows) we find that on occasion rooms...
