Visited for the second time. Had a wonderful room on 2nd floor, lovely helpful reception and chamber staff, nothing appears to much trouble. Very clean room, towels, sheets and bathroom. Will visit again. No lift, stairs narrow, but if you are able bodied, it's the place to be. Attached pub, grub very good. Just one thing would be nice, extended... More

I am currently working in the area and staying at this hotel where the staff are friendly, the food is good and the rooms are clean and comfortable, would defiantly recommend staying here also it's an old listed building which adds to the character of it

In a good way. The staff were fast friendly and efficient. The hotel was spotless and comfortable.. Went with friends for a weekend break, rooms 203 and 205 2nd floor front. Although on a busy road the road noise was minimal. Room was large, could have done with a kingsize but they only have doubles and the chairs were dining... More

Dear Guest. Thank you for your review, we are pleased to hear that you were pleasantly surprised by your visit to us. We agree, some rooms have ample space to take a King Size bed - we are in the process of looking into rooms that could be upgraded by having King Size/Super kings & also more comfortable chairs.

This Wetherspoons hotel is situated right in the heart of Tewkesbury. The reception staff are on top of the job and check in is very slick . The rooms are clean and in my opinion the better ones over look the beer garden. Drink and food pricing is what makes Wetherspoons. Bar staff very slick and rarely had to wait... More

We stayed for two nights, room clean and of a good standard but a little chilly when the curtains were open. Staff on reception very friendly and helpful. Bar closed bang on 11pm so room quiet.would stay again.

We stayed at the Royal Hop Pole this Saturday, this was our first stay at a Wetherspoons and we were delighted at what we found. The pub is a historic hotel with all the quirks which you would expect of a building this age. What I was not expecting was to be invited to view a beautifully restored medieval banqueting... More

I stayed at this Wetherspoon's hotel for a family occasion in January. I have never been to a nicer Wetherspoons pub and hotel. It is really good. Surprisingly large but cosy. Great food, service and the hotel room was creaky in a cutely sweet way. It dates back to the 15th century. The stair cases are crooked in parts, and... More

We stayed here as a family, and stayed in room 107. This room completely took us by surprise as we were not expecting medieval wall mural along the whole wall. I did not expect this, especially from a Wetherspoons pub. The only draw back is that I am 6ft 5 and kept hitting my head on the roof and beams... More
