Found by chance that some Wetherspoon pubs do rooms as well. This was one of them. Have now stayed there 3 times. Excellent value, rooms are clean and comfortable. Some are in the oldest part of this historic pub, in one I could have skied to the bathroom as the floor sloped so much but this is a medieval building....

My wife and I always spend a few days away without the kids in February at a wetherlodge and can say that we always get value for money from them. The room was well stocked and immaculately clean. The reception was always pleasant and helpful. The only downside I had on this occasion was that we were the first room...

Ideal position for the town. Free parking behind but limited spaces (we had no problem though). Large bar/restaurant area so always found some where to sit. Good value for money. Would stay again if in the area.

Plenty of storage space, sockets, mirrors, and good lighting and view out onto high street from our room 206. Ate in restaurant/pub below for lunch, evening...

We had an overnight stay in February. Car-parking permit was great, reception was warm and friendly and the room was clean and comfortable although difficult to get to. Service and food and drinks in the bar were excellent both evening and morning. Hotel was very handy for everything in Tewkesbury. Altogether a very enjoyable stay. We will be back. The...

This gem of a Weatherspoons hotel is amazing. With beautifully restored medieval features. The staff are super friendly and helpful . Great meeting point for the lovely town of Tewekesbury. The Abbey is outstanding and any time of year the River trips are a good way to unwind .

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This well-known landmark is an amalgamation of historic buildings dating from the 15th and 18th centuries, known as a number of names, including The Crown during King Henry VIII's reign. However, eventually it was named The Royal Hop Pole when Queen Mary stayed in 1937 and gave it the official 'Royal.' Charles Dickens even mentions The Royal Hop Pole in his first novel, The Pickwick Papers. Other interesting information and pictures are located all over the hotel, including information on how the Medieval Banqueting Hall was discovered when the hotel was recently refurbished. The Royal Hop Pole has its own beautiful garden which leads to the banks of The River; there you can see picturesque views of the surrounding countryside and the Malverns. ... more   less
