Stayed here for 1 night with 2 friends. Had a nice triple room which was a good size and well furnished. Lovely character to the building. Bar is nice and staff really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a little disappointing with over cooked bacon and undercooked poached egg but other than that a nice place and I would return. Well situated in the town and only a short drive to lots of activities.

The hotel is in the middle of the town with a free car park and within easy reach of a lovely riverside walk. The rooms were clean and comfortable (the climb up the winding stairs to the second floor had a lighthouse feel about it and might be a challenge for some) The staff were pleasant and helpful but what sets this pub/hotel apart is the food. Definitely a cut above pub grub. The evening meal took a while to come but it was worth the wait and I put it down to 4 different meals being properly prepared. There was a good breakfast choice which came with freshly made bread toasted.

Excellent hotel with friendly helpful staff and terrific food. Especially appreciated the breakfast included with the room. In a lovely town with interesting shops and pleasant views. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Room fine for 2 people but a little tight with large suitcases. Beautiful bathroom.

The entire staff was very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful to us. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel is old, but that is part of the charm of this place. Centrally located in Ross-on-Wye. We would stay there again.

The King's Head Hotel is a convenient base to explore the Wye Valley and benefits from having free private parking (the entrance through a narrow arch is a bit tight in a large car). I had booked a superior double room and we were given room 11. The carpet was stained, the bathroom looked tired an the toilet seat was discoloured. We asked to be moved to another room and were given 15 on the top floor. This had the sense of being lighter, airier and, most importantly, cleaner. The bathroom had obviously been refurbished, unlike the first room

Being an old building, the stairs to the top were winding and uneven. There is no lift so beware if your mobility is limited.

On the positive side, the staff we encountered were all friendly and helpful and the service was good. We ate in the restaurant one evening - a very pleasant experience with good food, well presented. The breakfast was also excellent. Would I stay again? If I could be sure that the room would be more like 15 than 11 then yes

What a little gem of a pub/restaurant/hotel this is! You get the old world surround with beams, not level staircases, creaking floorboards combined with excellent levels of hot water, comfortable beds and good WiFi.

Great atmosphere with friendly locals in the bar and excellent service all round through the dinner, bed and breakfast. Good food and wide range of beers and wine.

Would happily stay again!

A great place to stay at the end of our holiday. The room was, erm...roomy! Bathroom was small but fine, one at a time please!!! Close enough to Wales to leave it behind comfortably after a day trip. Ate at Yaks and Yetis, Nepalese Gurkha restaurant, food was amazing!!!!!!
Ate in the hotel on the last night and the food was great. Plenty of choice on the beer and gin front also.
