The Royal Oak Hotel in Welshpool has welcomed many VIPs over the years including recently, Her Majesty the Queen. The 25-bedroom hotel has had an investment of more than £600,000 to refurbish the 18th century hotel, since the owners bought the business in 2004. The Royal Oak boasts comfortable lounges, a bar with a Costa concession that draws in locals throughout the day and one of – if not the – biggest function rooms in the town. These factors have helped ensure its continuing success and a turnover approaching £1m.
