Have just returned from a two day break at The Royal Lodge and found it excellent. The food was as good as we've had on 5* cruises, but with bigger portions, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The location is also excellent with great views of the River Wye from most of the front facing rooms and really good... More

The entrance is nicely decorated and even has a covered porch area at the front to just enjoy the fresh air and view and for those who smoke a comfortable place to do so. The location is stunning....

My wife and I have recently returned from a two night Wowcher break at The Royal Lodge. The room, number 13, was excellent apart from not having a shower. In fact we were up-graded to this room, looking out over the river, just after arrival which was a very pleasant gesture. The breakfast was excellent but unfortunately the evening meal... More

The 2 of us spent a Monday through Thursday celebrating 40 year anniversary in November. We received very courteous and friendly attention from the moment we arrived. As we expected, the views were fantastic, and we took a couple of walks - along the river, and up to the top of the Rock (Yat), where the most amazing vista was... More

Ate here twice last week, food and service was fantastic on both occasions, there were 9 of us and all commented on quality of food. We were staying at The Chalet for a weeks holiday which I would also recommend for large party of friends or families.
