We returned yesterday from a 2 day stay at the Royal Lodge. There is some building work still under way but it has been organised in such a way that it does not effect the paying guest at all. Through out the 2 day stay we were made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent and the room (no... More

Booked direct with Hotel for a one night stop over whilst en-route from Banbury to Swansea. Offered a "basic" double at a cheaper price than that shown on various hotel booking sites on the internet. Result!! Welcomed by very pleasant receptionist and taken to room, up three flights of stairs into a converted attic room. Usual facilities in a small... More

We arrived and the staff were really helpful and friendly we were allocated room 16 which gave us the most fabulous views over the very swollen river.The room was very large,warm and clean.

Stayed this weekend, and lots of positives, but some negatives. Visited on a Wowcher, so good value for money. Unfortunately, my partner is on crutches, but ramp to hotel was off limits due to building works, and steps outside to hotel have very,very high risers and no hand rails, I found them difficult and I am able,but really hard for...

We returned yesterday from a one night stay at the Royal Lodge. The location is excellent. There are loads of really nice walks on the doorstep, perfect for a trip with dogs. The room was large and perfectly adequate, but the mattress was quite thin and uncomfortable. Breakfast was good and they kindly set up a table in another room... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Royal Lodge Hotel at Symonds Yat East. We were a little deflated on arrival, to find building work going on. But we received a warm welcome from Karen on reception, and where upgraded to a lovely room. During our stay nothing was too much trouble for the staff, particularly a lovely... More

We stayed here on a wowcher deal for two nights and felt amazing for the time out. The location next to the river is amazing with the hills steeply climbing on each side. The staff were great and the bed was a good night sleep. Breakfast was scrumptious. We are very tempted to come back with the teenagers and try... More

On a previous visit to the Wye Valley we had lunch outside the Royal Lodge so when we saw a Wowcher offer we decided to try staying for a couple of nights. On arrival the staff were helpful and friendly and our room had a view of the river. The room was adequately furnished and clean, however the bed was... More
