“Great nosh. A real treasure.”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

We only used the restaurant here but what a treat it was. The prices are a little off putting but the quality is unquestionable. The service was lovely and the atmosphere an absolute delight. Keep an eye out for the windows in the floor which are viewing points for caverns and caves below.

Didn't stay overnight, wish we had rather than where we stayed... but ate in the restaurant on a friend's recommendation... We were well impressed with the standard of the food.. gorgeous,. they managed to make even the fish and chips really top class!! The menu was really unusual, full of sumptuous goodies, and difficult to choose what to have. It was busy with a lovely calm atmosphere, the tables were laid very nicely, and the whole night was very enjoyable. Would consider staying there in future, and there was a lovely big doggie in the bar too so right up my street.. pet friendly!

Room Tip: definitely eat here, a very enjoyable experience, better than any 'pub grub' I have ever ex...

Spent one night here over August bank holiday. Booking in not allowed too early. Had to come back later when room ready, which was right at the top of two stair cases but not a bad size room. Power shower in en suite. Clean. Ate in the restaurant at night, food good and reasonable. Breakfast included and also good. Good value. Lively in the bar at night and central location to shops and walk around river. Enjoyable.

lautrecs99, Owner at The King's Head Hotel, responded to this review, 18 September 2013
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are really pleased you enjoyed your short stay with us. We are sorry your room was not quite ready when you arrived. Guests are always most welcome to check in before our standard time of 2.30pm, if of course their room is ready. As check out is 11am and it takes over an hour to properly service a room it's just not possible to have every room ready early. We do strongly recommend that anyone planning to arrive early asks for an early check in, well in advance, so that we can prioritise their room. To 100% guarantee a room being available before 2.30, we recommend booking the prior night. We can often offer a discount on the room rate for two night stays, if booked direct with the hotel. Thank you again

Stayed here on route between meetings. The Hotel is nicely situated in the town with its own carpark. The room we had was very good, on the first floor although a tad expensive for what it was. The hotel/pub has been around for a while so some nice wood beams etc. Floors creaked but that only added to the character & charm.

Food was excellent with good size portions & the beer even better.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a table if you want to eat at the hotel.

Great hotel in a perfect location. Thought the hotel is old and quaint, which is what we wanted the rooms are a nice size and the bathroom is more modern and it's all very clean.
Great food for breakfast and also in the restaurant was outstanding for the evening meal.

Summing up - this is one hard to beat character hotel. We stayed two nights Excellent accommodation.Free bottled water plus a good choice of tea/coffee in the room Food, breakfasts and dinners were outstanding for both choice, service and quality.
Car park - clear map from hotel website is helpful first time. Room 10 is light and spacious though it does front onto the main street so with a window open it is susceptible to morning passing traffic noise. Neat in size very stylish, attractive, modern en-suite( with shower).
Hotel provides free WiFi
Staff very pleasant and helpful.

The hotel is privately owned and is old and quaint. The room was clean as was the bathroom. Service is excellent and the breakfast well above average. The Kings Head has improved enormously and the current owners have done a great job.

The location is right in the middle of the market town of Ross-on-Wye, which has seen better days. Parking can be difficult and it might be easier to use the public car park which is behind the hotel.

Room Tip: You may like to see the room allocated beforehand
