Ross on Wye is a small market town nestling alongside the meandering River Wye. It is an ideal base to explore the surrounding countryside, including the Forest of Dean, The Brecon Beacons, Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds. Also a great stopping off point for trips to Cardiff or even racing at Chepstow or Cheltenham.

The Kings Head Hotel, which dates back to the 14th century, is situated in the most picturesque street in the centre of Ross. Until the advent of the railways in the 19th century, the Hotel was a small Coaching Inn. During Georgian times an extra storey was added and the facade changed to the current one. The Kings Head has open fireplaces and a wealth of oak beams. A tunnel reputedly runs in the cellar past the 12th century well to the old Saracens Head Inn.

Occasionally there have been reports of ghosts and the clatter of horses from time past. We aim to bring the warmth of welcome and hospitality of a bygone age with convenience of the 22nd Century.

The King’s Head Hotel has fifteen rooms. Each have full en-suite with either shower over bath or walk in shower. Four poster, double, family, triple and twin rooms are available. The King’s Head Hotel is an AA graded 3 Star Hotel and is a grade 2 listed building. The original winding stairs date from the Queen Anne period. All of our bedrooms are either on the first or second floor. Unfortunately, we do not have a lift. Therefore please inform us, when booking, if you find climbing stairs difficult.

All our rooms have tea and coffee trays, biscuits, complimentary filtered water, direct dial access telephones and flat-screen Freeview television. Our superior rooms are larger and have DAB i-pod docking radios.

Wireless internet is available and is free of charge; coverage extends to most of the hotel. The hotel has its own car park which is accessed via High Street.

The car park is free to residents, holds around 18 cars and operates on a first come basis. There is no facility to reserve a place. Larger cars will find it easier to access our car park by approaching via Palace Pound. The car park entrance is through an archway, approximately 2.8m high and 2.8m wide. There is also a public car park on New Street, which has pedestrian access to our car park. We can securely store cycles for you, with prior notice. 

The King’s Bar, offers three hand pulled traditional real ales and is CAMRA and The Good Pub Guide recommended. A popular destination for both locals and travellers to meet, the King’s Bar has a traditional old Inn atmosphere.
