Friendly helpful and professional staff. Well presented rooms with a comfortable bed, ours had views over the river. Excellent food. A beautiful location with a range of good walks from the doorstep. Dog friendly. We will be staying again.

We just stayed the one night before traveling to Cornwall. The location is superb, a bit difficult to get to down the windy narrow roads but well worth the effort. Great check in service and shown to room plus help with suitcase. Room was a bit small plus on suite with shower only but we expected this. The great thing... More

We had lunch there before walking along the river. The service was rubbish. We ordered a sandwich and a portion of chips between us as we were having dinner later in the evening. The chips were the 'ends' from a bag and were not hot enough, the sandwich was a basic (grated) cheese and pickle on slices bread with a... More

So our third visit to the Royal Lodge. I think the management were disappointed with my last review having said that the hotel looked tired. I have to stand by that but there are many redeeming features.. The staff were lovely as was the breakfast they served. The rooms are adequate with outstanding views. The position of the hotel nestling... More

Me and the mrs stayed here for a 1 night break last week and found the hotel to be nice and the location it is set in was a fantastic place to stay. We had room 11, up 2 flights of stairs. The room was big, and nice enough with a great view of the river, just a few small... More

We thank our guest for their review. We are pleased to hear that on the whole they enjoyed their stay. The issues regarding phone and television signal is due to the hotel being situated in a gorge. The hotel does provide telephones in the rooms which are free to use. We are glad that they enjoyed our selection of locally... More

We visited for a 3 night break with our dog, the hotel is perfectly situated right at the end of the Symonds Yat East stretch of hotels, shops etc which meant you could walk straight through the hotel car park to join the old train line wooded riverside walk which was perfect when needing to exercise the dog or take...

I was surprised to be contacted by the son of the owner of this establishment after I posted my original review. Having suggested that he request its withdrawal (which apparently he had already attempted but been unable to accomplish, he opted to phone me rather than post a response on the TA site). Therefore, I submit this revision in deference... More
