The Royal Mail Hotel have 4 en-suite units available and also offer free overnight camping to patrons (vehicles only - no tents). Register at the bar if you wish to stay. A sink and toilet are available and left open at night. First built around 1870 on Clements Road and when the road was put through to Ross in 1878 the Woodstock Hotel was jacked up and then rolled on empty beer barrels and pulled by horses 200 yards up the hill to its present site. Gaylor's Hotel was now on the main road and a stopping place for the mail coaches to Ross so a new name seemed more appropriate The Royal Mail Hotel.

You can park behind the bar. We arrived quite late so the restaurant was closed. Some others van were already there. Quiet and toilet clean.



You can park at the back of the bar/restaurant, you just have to go register at the bar, checkout by 10am. It's free but supporting the bar by purchasing a couple of drinks would be appreciated Toilets provided 24/7 Very quiet



Great place to stay. Handy to local attractions. Friendly staff at Hotel. Live music Sunday night while we were there. Good vibe. Register at Pub from 4pm. Toilet out back open 24/7. Free to stay. Support the hotel, drinks are well priced
