From check in to check out, I was happy with everything. The reception found answers for all my questions, the staff were happy to help, the room was perfect with more than I expected for the price (those little things that you just don't get any more with a bargain hotel). I'd gladly stay here again - oh, and Tewkesbury... More

I stayed at the Royal Hop Pole last night, as I was going to a friends birthday party which was going on late. Entering the bathroom was a struggle for me due to a step into the bathroom and also due to the size, I had to enter sideways. I couldn't get in the shower, as I had no room... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you found the staff helpful and that you would return again. Due to the nature of the building, most of our rooms have quirky layouts and 'wonky' floors with it being such an old building. We do have a ground floor room which has a wet room... More

Remember this is a Wetherspoons pub & Hotel, stayed here in February as a trial for a party of 12 in May. Everyone was impressed. What can I say the thing that makes this place so special is the staff, reception, bar, waiter/tress, cleaning, they cannot do enough too please, extremely efficient and they do it with a smile.

Our experience with the Royal Hop Pole Hotel has exceeded all expectations, from our first visit in February to try it out, with a view to arranging a long weekend for 12 people, through to the very satisfactory stay we have just had. The 6 couples enjoyed the weekend (3 nights) very much, and we feel that Wetherspoon's and the... More

Lovely quirky hotel especially if you like a bit of history, loved the open beams and the exposed mediaeval room upstairs in the residents area. Cheerful bar staff, well priced food and drinks. Good view of the Abbey from our bedroom. The only downside was the bells but once we were asleep they didn't wake us at all even with... More

Presently having a new kichen/dining room refurbished, so frequent meals out, been to the Hop Pole a few times, can honestly say it never ceases to surprise us.

This was a very nice hotel in a lovely location - I would recommend this as the hotel is comfortable and we had a quiet room. I wish I had eaten in the restarunt as the garden looked really nice, we had already booked a restaraunt down the road

We stayed in RM 118 on a Sunday night. Room was spotless, the staff were friendly and efficient, and we weren't disturbed by the bar at all. An added bonus was the free car parking - you need to park in the Royal Hop Pole car park at the rear and get a permit from reception to cover your stay.
