This was our second stay at the Royal Hope Pole, this time we were in Room 108, very historical with medieval wall paintings (surprised they're not covered by glass to keep people from damaging them, very trusting of Wetherspoons). The room was very comfy and, with the high ceiling and beams, it was like sleeping in an upturned boat, wonderful.... More

We stayed one night at this hotel, a Wednesday in mid October. We hadn't booked but were in the Town while travelling in the area and fancied staying over. The hotel only had 2 rooms available and when we asked if we could please see them the receptionist was extremely accommodating and showed us both. We chose the one furthest... More

We were told by the hotel receptionist when we checked in that we would be staying in ‘lovely room 208’. Little did we realize the irony of her comment. Room 208 is situated above the loudest, noisiest kitchen extractor fan on earth, thanks to Weatherspoon’s policy of providing around the clock meals for its customers. Imagine being woken up by...

Dear Guest, I am sorry that you (understandably) did not enjoy your visit with us in room 208. The extractor fan in question is actually not ours, but that of a neighbouring property, so I am very sorry to hear that it disturbed you and we will look into resolving this issue - We have not had a complaint of...

Dear Tony W, Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you found us comfortable and a good base for exploring the Cotswolds. The oldest part of the building dates back to the 14th Century (The Medieval Hall upstairs) With regards to the teaspoons and stirrers, i believe it is something which is being trialled at our...

We were treated to a special weekend away by my elderly mother and weren't disappointed when we reached The Royal Hop Pole. Our rooms were nice, fairly clean, and the pub is well restored and served lovely food (great value too!). The problem was the smoke alarm went off in the middle of the night (extremely high pitched and loud).... More

As i am sure you can understand, the fire alarm is there for the safety of all of our guests, should... More

Needed overnight accommodation while I was working on my empty cottage in Tewkesbury, booked the Royal Hop Pole (my second visit). Had a lovely room (despite the tortuous route to get to it in this beautiful half timbered building). Everything was clean, TV & WiFi worked well, no problems - RECOMMENDED

If ever you stay again and would prefer a room closer to reception please do put a request on your booking and we will do our best. Thank you... More

Thank you for your lovely review. Its so nice to hear that you visit regularly and would recommend us. We agree the open fireplace is very popular in the winter months, and i'm sure will soon be lit once the colder weather kicks in! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
