I can only describe our trip as a slightly strange experience. There is no doubt about it - this hotel has a fabulous location and that is what drew us to it. What it can't seem to make its mind up about though is what clientele it is aiming at. The service was rather curt at times and we didn't... More

Our meals however were excellent so the price became justified. Plenty of outside eating area . We had to park... More

The Royal Lodge is perfectly situated and enjoys some lovely views and walking opportunities from the front door. After a very warm welcome from Callum, who showed us to our room, we booked our selves in for dinner and took advantage of the free bottle of wine offer with 2 meals! Our room was very nice with superb views along... More

Location, staff, food all lovely. Very helpful, friendly hard working staff who do their best to make your stay enjoyable. The food was great, wonderfully tender beef in the stroganoff, although if we did not have an offer which meant our £16ish bottle of wine was free it would have been an expensive evening! It is a bit of a... More

The hotel is in a glorious location with lovely gardens to sit outside in the sun and enjoy the valley. Our room also had a lovely view over the lawns. We ate both nights at the restaurant which was very good. Staff were lovely. The hotel communal areas are a bit shabby and in need of a refresh. The bathroom... More

Once again I had the chance to have lunch in this wonderful spot. Facilities great as was the service, and food. Can't wait for the fishing season to start to go after the wonderful River Wye Barbel. Wonderful Hotel and area to visit and relax, Will be back soon.

Stayed at this glorious hotel for a couple of days with my husband, weather was beautiful, and the location of this hotel is to die for, right on the river Wye. We upgraded our room before hand and we was not disappointed. Staff were very accomadating and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Room was lovely and clean and... More

We thank our valued guest for their review.

We went in January as a couple with a dog. The hotel were welcoming of both us and our Staffie. The room was pleasant enough though not outstanding.
