Testimonials for Royal Lodge Hotel Testimonials for Royal Lodge Hotel
Ginny & Marcus

"My sister and her husband chose to get married here primarily as they loved the setting which which is just incredible, However they were incredibly lucky with the choice of venue too. The wedding co-ordinator was fantastic, organising everything from boats to the church down the river and fireworks in the evening, the staff & service as a whole were excellent, very accommodating"

"Our daughters wedding reception was held at the Royal Lodge on Friday 22nd July 2011. We all had a wonderful day and evening. The staff were excellent and any requests we had were dealt with pleasantly and promptly. My husband, myself and all our guests couldn't fault anything. The food was superb and the facilities excellent. The bedrooms are very clean and comfortable with lovely views of the river Wye. A perfect day. "

Natalie & Dave

"We are so glad that we chose The Royal Lodge for our wedding, we knew the location was outstandingly beautiful but didn't realise that the Royal Lodge Staff were every bit as wonderful. From the first meeting with Helen Minnie (the wedding co-ordinator) she couldn't do enough for us and had some truly wonderful ideas which helped contribute to our amazing day. "

Natalie & Dave, Married in August 2014

Rob & Kath

"We chose the Royal Lodge for our wedding primarily because it's in a stunning location in a part of the world that we both love, but it's also a great, characterful venue and the staff are amazing! They were hugely accomodating of our ideas and requests, and their attention to detail on the day was excellent - everything ran very smoothly and professionally. The food is great too, and the bar has three tasty ales!"

Rob & Kath, Married in November 2013

Lee & Kay

"My now wife and I found the royal lodge on the internet and instantly fell for the pictures of the hotel itself and the views around. After visiting the place (pictures never do anthing justice) it was even more amazing, a beautiful hotel set in beautiful surroundings that was it we were hooked. After meeting the wedding organiser Helen all was set with ease in our short space of time"

Lee & Kay, Married in May 2012


"The venue was simply stunning. The grounds overlook the River Wye; with manicured gardens and plenty of outside seating for our guests to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The staff at the venue were excellent and the food was out of this world. I would definitely recommend to any couples if they want a stunning countryside venue with top notch service. Miriam, the wedding coordinator has been absolutely amazing. My dream wedding wouldn’t have happened without her. From the very beginning of planning to the very end, she was always there with great advice. Miriam understood my busy schedule and made the wedding planning process easy. I don't know how anyone plans a wedding without a coordinator. I was not stressed at all because I knew you had everything under control and every detail covered. Thank you for making my wedding a weekend I will never forget. Thank you for everything."

Tina and John

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team for all the hard work you did in preparation for our wedding and on the day . All the guests absolutely loved the BBQ . Compliments to the chef , the food was outstanding . As where the drinks , canapés , buffet and service all round . We are still on cloud 9 from how amazing the day and weather was . The boat journey was so lovely and a nice touch for the transport to church . Our only concern was that we waited a long time for the boat to return and grab the last of us . I know it would have been out of your hands but they started doing tours and this wasn't very nice for us as the wedding party was still using the boats . We loved the journey and the boats were beautifully decorated . Please pass on our thanks to the captain . All our guests loved the venue and surrounding area . Couldn't have been more perfect ."
