There is always some fear in returning to an hotel that was good on your first trip. We have just come back from two nights at The Royal Lodge and ITS EVEN BETTER. In these tough economic times it is not easy for hoteliers to spend on improvements but that's just what they are doing at this hotel. We stayed... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for a couple of nights early December. The hotel was a bit hard to find ( blame on the GPS that took us the other side of the river). We arrived when it was dark, but the next morning we enjoyed the most amazing views. We walked for a few miles along the river. It... More

We chose the royal lodge for our wedding (September 2014) and can honestly say it was the best day of our lives. We couldn't be happier. Helen was amazing, she went out of her way to help organise our big day, and nothing was too much trouble for her. We got married in the garden overlooking the river. After the... More

We stayed at the Royal Lodge in October and had a disappointing stay. However the management could not apologise enough and invited us to stay again. What a turn around! They could not have been friendlier. They gave us fresh milk for our tea in the bedroom, invited us to use the landline if we needed to make calls to... More

Just returned from a weekend at the Royal Lodge with a party of 11. The team there were so helpful and made our stay a great experience. The food is first class, lots of options, well presented and fresh. Loads of activities nearby and the local pub is nice.

Me and my other half stayed here this weekend and were not disappointed. We arrived late into the evening to which the scenery and surrounding locations were blanketed by nightfall, only to he blown away by the location and breathtaking views from our bedroom window the next morning. Upon arrival we were upgraded from a cosy double to a standard... More

Stayed here last weekend on a 'wowcher 'deal which was excellent value for money. I am however going to review on behalf of those who may be paying full price. This hotel is undoubtably in a beautiful location, holds lots of history & in its day was very grand. Our welcome however was quite abrupt, we completed the necessary paperwork... More

We thank our guest for choosing to stay with us and for posting their particularly negative review. It is unfortunate that The Royal Lodge was not to our guests liking and that the continuous improvements being made to such an old building had not been appreciated.

We thank our guest for their review. It is unfortunate our guest deemed our riverside location as being too remote. We are pleased that our guest enjoyed their food although we are somewhat puzzled as to the comment regarding the carpets as they have all been replaced within the last two years.

We stayed at the Royal Lodge Hotel recently on a Wowcher deal and having not chosen to upgrade to either a 'classic' or a 'king' room, we found the standard room (colloquially known as a 'cosy' room we believe), to be rather small and cramped. Having said that, it was clean and comfortable, but fell short on having any complimentary... More

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.
