About the hotel

The Royal Lodge at Symonds Yat East has an idyllic setting in the heart of the Wye Valley. It is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty where the River Wye cuts a swathe through a wooded gorge on the edge of the spectacular Royal Forest of Dean. Nestled just below Symonds Yat Rock, it stands exclusively in grounds of almost 5 acres overlooking the river.

It has terraced gardens of magnolia trees and a well established wisteria. The Royal was originally built in 1876 as a royal hunting lodge and was converted to a hotel in the 1920's. The Royal Lodge is an ideal place to spend a relaxing break in a beautiful setting. It is in close proximity to numerous outdoor activities such as canoeing, abseiling, caving, kayaking, golf, cycling, walking and horse-riding. The hotel is also well situated to explore the Wye Valley, Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and the South Wales coast. It boasts 20 ensuite bedrooms, which are arranged to take advantage of our unique position on the edge of the River Wye and make the most of the views. Every room faces the tranquil river. We have a comfortable family lounge where you can enjoy our real fire in winter and where you can read or play board-games. We are a dog friendly property but only some rooms are available for dogs to stay in. Please contact us directly to request a dog room prior to arrival.

Better to avoid or have very - very small expectations even if paid a lot

No wi-fi in the room, even staff reassured it was available.

I have been asked if a Daily Mail needed in the morning, answer yes, however - never received, asked several times for it, in the evening got an answer- the post boy is sick. When arrived asked for ironing board with iron, day later received the board only, with huge hole in the middle, was told that irons are not available. Had been told on arriving that if any questions- just phone reception, however there was no desk phone in the room, when mentioned this at the reception- got the answer that not all rooms have a phone. And our room was number 20, £198 for two nights!. What a Joke!!
