The hotel is located in the picturesque town of Ross-on-Wye, above the River Wye and is just north of the Forest of Dean. It boats some amazing views of the surrounding countryside and is built on the foundations of a 13th century Bishop's Palace.

Catering for single travellers, couples, families and friends with a range of twin, single, double, family and superior rooms, it's a real countryside retreat and a great base to explore the local attractions.

And with such a fantastic setting and with the ability to accommodate up to 60 guests, it makes an ideal wedding venue too.
