Style of hotel and ambience

The Royal Hotel stands high above the horseshoe bend of the River Wye, commanding some of the best views of the surrounding countryside. This majestic grade II Georgian country hotel was built in 1833 on the original foundations of The Bishop's Palace, dating back to the 13th century. By 1851 it had become the staging-post for 16 of the 22 coach services which passed through the town. Thanks to its superior location and facilities, the Royal Hotel had become the town's principal inn, and one of its devotees was Charles Dickens, who frequently used it while visiting his business manager George Dolby, a resident of Ross on Wye, and planned his Celebrated American Book Reading Tour whilst staying here. Ross on Wye is famous for its Market Square, farmer's market and antique shops, and is one of the most popular tourist spots in the region.
