The Royal Lodge


Symonds Yat East,


The Royal Lodge at Symonds Yat East, Herefordshire has an idyllic setting in the heart of the Wye Valley on the edge of the spectacular Royal Forest of Dean. The Royal Lodge is the place to spend a relaxing break in a beautiful setting.

Built in 1876, this former royal hunting lodge is in close proximity to numerous outdoor activities such as canoeing, abseiling, caving, kayaking, golf and cycling.

The Royal Lodge has 21 en-suite bedrooms which are arranged so that 20 take advantage of our unique position on the edge of the River Wye and make the most of the views so that every room faces the tranquil river or gardens. We have a selection of Superior, Classic, Standard, Twin, Family and Single Rooms as well as our 4 Poster Room which allows us to offer unrivaled flexibility. We will be pleased to discuss any special accommodation requirements you have. All the rooms are comfortably furnished in-keeping with the buildings character.

We have a comfortable family lounge where you can enjoy our log-burner in winter and where you can read or play board-games.

Use the Lodge as a base to explore the Wye Valley and the Royal Forest of Dean and participate in a variety of outdoor activities. Canoeing is right on the doorstep with climbing and pot holing all nearby.

The Royal’s restaurant offers exciting and innovative cuisine in a warm, comfortable and unique setting.

The Lodge is nestled below Symonds Yat Rock overlooking the River Wye. It has terraced gardens of Magnolia trees and a well established Wisteria. The Royal was converted from a Royal Hunting Lodge 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.
