The Royal Lodge at Symonds Yat East has an idyllic setting in the heart of the Wye Valley 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.
The Lodge is nestled just below Symonds Yat Rock and 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 and is now operating proudly as 4 Star Guest Accommodation. The Royal Lodge is a great place to unwind with long relaxing walks in outstanding scenery. The hotel is also well situated to explore the Wye Valley, Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and the South Wales coast.
The Royal Lodge has 20 en-suite bedrooms with most facing the river or gardens to take advantage of our unique position on the edge of the River Wye. We have a selection of Superior, Classic, Standard, Twin, Family and Single Rooms as well as our 4 Poster Room. We have a comfortable family lounge where you can enjoy our log-burner in winter.
The Royal Lodge aims to make your stay as comfortable as possible so that so that you can get the most from your break in Forest of Dean. We hope you will feel as relaxed as possible and we can offer advice on local places to visit, and walks and activities right on our doorstep to make your visit even more rewarding.
