We have been regular visitors to the Royal Lodge for around 40 years. In fact it has been our favourite retreat for a very long time. There have been several changes in management during this time - some better than others! I have to say that the current set-up is the best yet and would congratulate Graham Howells and his... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Symonds Yat. My husband had always wanted to visit "Symonds Yat" just because he liked the sound of the name!. We were very delighted at what we found - such a beautiful unspoiled area and so unexpected. The hotel was also great and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The first room we... More

The location is absolutely stunning. The rooms are a bit dated but more than comfortable. The staff couldn't have been more helpful except for an older foreign looking gentleman who was pretty unhelpful. I would recommend this place and stay here again.

As I begin many of my reviews....repeat after me....if you want all of your creature comforts from home.....stay home...if you want 5 star luxuries....ante up and stay in a 5 star hotel. BUT...if you want to experience England as a traveler and not a tourist - then book in at The Royal Lodge and enjoy the sights and sounds of... More

For those unaware of Symonds yat East , I consider it the most beautiful spot in England. The Royal Lodge is an old building ( hence the 4 stars) but very clean , the gardens in the front being the highlight with tables in the shade overlooking the Wye. I have stayed several times over 20 years but on this... More

this hotel is in an idyllic spot on the River Wye. Off the beaten path so use Sat Nav, but when you get there you are in a beautiful location, nestled in the Wye river valley, amongst steep wooded valley bends. Great walking, fishing, canoeing, cycling location right outside the door. On a Sunny evening you will not want to... More

You could not ask for a more idyllic location. Set on the bank on the river Wye the Royal Lodge has a lovely large garden to enjoy the views. We were certainly spoilt with the weather having 3 glorious sunny days which showed off Symonds Yat to its best. We booked bed and breakfast. There was plenty of choice both... More

Location of this Hotel is just magical, you can walk along the river Wye just outside the Hotel and if you turn left out of the hotel and walk till you come across a path turning left by a large boulder, this steep path ( Not as steep as the other path, I recommend this one!) takes you to the...
