Standing in the centre of Welshpool, The Royal Oak Hotel was once the manor house for the Earl of Powys, before being used as a coaching inn for travellers en route to the Welsh coast. A range of bedrooms styles offer high levels of comfort and are complemented by very good quality bathrooms, as well as Sky TV. A bustling coffee shop is located on the ground floor, with a number of interconnecting lounges ensuring there is always a quiet corner. The smart dining room offers a range of dishes to suit most tastes both at lunch and dinner. A small secure car park is a welcome additional feature.
