The Hotel is at the end of Symonds Yat East with a nice car park (which can get busy at times but nothing that would cause you problems) and amazing views overlooking the river. Staff are polite and friendly, keen to make sure your stay is pleasant, and not constantly checking with you that you feel pestered or harassed. The... More

We recently got married at The Royal Lodge and could not be happier with how the day went. The location is stunning and all our guests were very impressed with the venue. The food is of a high standard and we have eaten there several times. Some of our guests were so impressed they booked for extra nights. Helen and... More

This hotel is certainly fabulously located on the River Wye and it is obviously very popular with some reviewers. However, we found certain staff rather gloomy, as was our room which was drab with mismatched furniture and awful "artwork". Our mattress was something else! Breakfast was acceptable but unremarkable - but the dining room was full so it must have... More

Come here. Beautiful views of the River Wye from this hotel and really outstanding service. The staff are all friendly and brilliant, and the quality of the food for breakfasts and dinner was fantastic. If you want to be in Symonds Yat, then you MUST stay here. We loved it and will be back.

A hotel full of character in a picturesque setting in the village of Symonds Yat with beautiful views of the river Wye and access to walking, canoeing and cruising on the river. It's as relaxing or as active as you want it to be. Staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly and provided excellent service throughout our stay. The restaurant menu... More

A beautiful hotel in a quaint area with picturesque views from every angle. The Royal Lodge was a spectacular hotel with immense character which fits perfectly in to the small village that is Symonds Yat. Greeted with friendly staff, we arrived and were shown to our rooms. The views were gorgeous with the river in sight straight from the window.... More
