You could not ask for a more idyllic location. Set on the bank on the river Wye the Royal Lodge has a lovely large garden to enjoy the views. We were certainly spoilt with the weather having 3 glorious sunny days which showed off Symonds Yat to its best. We booked bed and breakfast. There was plenty of choice both... More

Location of this Hotel is just magical, you can walk along the river Wye just outside the Hotel and if you turn left out of the hotel and walk till you come across a path turning left by a large boulder, this steep path ( Not as steep as the other path, I recommend this one!) takes you to the...

The food was again superb the whole atmosphere in the hotel was one of relaxation . We can't wait to book up again for another weekend away in the autumn.

We booked Room 19 for a long weekend. Great views from front and side windows down the valley and across the river. The room was a nice size. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The on-suite was large but the shower was an overhead above the bath. Unfortunately there was no water pressure so the shower was useless unless... More

Stayed 2 nights in most picturesque location overlooking the River Wye. Rooms were compact but, all facilities readily available and of good quality. Staff very helpful and always available, when required. Meals were of superb quality, both evening and at breakfast. Only drawback was the no. of steps to the higher rooms on 2nd floor. However, staff gave assistance for... More

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff at the Royal Lodge , especially Helen and Callum for their help in making our activity weekend a huge success. We felt as though someone was always at hand to answer any queries or generally make everything run smoothly. We appreciated the ease of an early breakfast on... More

Just back from spending a week at the Royal Lodge, and what a week. The location is perfect for walking, water sports and general trips out. The staff at the hotel deserve far more than 5 stars. Everyone is so helpful, friendly and generally godo with customers. Nothing has been too much trouble. The restaurant is excellent, food is brilliant,... More

Just spent two fantastic days at this hotel. The hotel is in a wonderful location and the food and staff are excellent. There is plenty to see and do and a walk up to the top of Yats Rock is well worth the effort. Hire a canoe, bike, take a river cruise or just walk along the river to Monmouth.... More

Let us get the "below average" out of the way. Only one suggestion - update the bedrooms as and when possible i.e. funds permitting. That's the end of the negatives. The staff were excellent, friendly, offering helpful hints of what / where to visit locally and also they were gifted with a great sense of humour. Food well above average... More
