Golf courses near The Royal Lodge

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 and is managed by Graham Howells who has overseen the transformation and ensures that the level of service reflects the new development and idyllic location

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.

For the more adventurous guest there is a vast range of adventure activities. Within walking distance of the hotel there is canoeing, kayaking, climbing and abseiling. Nearby there is golf, horse riding and caving and even helicopter tours. 

The Royal Lodge has 20 en-suite bedrooms which are arranged so that 19 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 unrivalled flexibility. We will be pleased to discuss any special accommodation requirements you have. All the rooms have been refurbished in the last year to ensure your relaxation and comfort. 

The Royal Lodge has Hunters restaurant which offers fine food which is locally sourced where possible. We offer a creative and well thought out menu offering local dishes and international cuisine. We will aim to accommodate any special dietary requirement of our guests.
