Accommodation Description:

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 book, The Pickwick Papers.

Other interesting information and pictures are located all over the hotel, including information on how the medieval 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. Take a two minute walk to marvel at the impressive Abbey or a stroll to the river where you can enjoy a boat trip.

Catch a movie or play at The Roses theatre with friends or take a swim at the local swimming pool. With its central location, clean facilities and excellent value for money it is no wonder The Royal Hop Pole continues to be a popular hotel today. Persons wishing to use the card details given on booking, to charge on check out, without the card holder present, should be aware there is an additional 1.50 charge for this service.

All breakfasts are cooked fresh when ordered; using quality ingredients, and then they are brought to you! How it should be. Breakfast times are 7am - 12pm on weekdays and 8am -12pm on weekends. Dinner is served until 10pm 7 days a week.

Tewkesbury itself is an ancient settlement, at the meeting point of the rivers Severn and Avon, providing one of the best medieval townscapes in England today. The town and surrounding area are steeped in history, with a wealth of historic buildings and attractions to discover, as well as some simply stunning river valley countryside, making the Cotswolds and Severn Vale one of the best-loved regions. Tewkesbury remains a popular destination for the traveler and visitor.

Situated at the southernmost point of the Midlands inland waterways system and being the first non tidal water up the river Severn, the town is a natural stopping place for water craft. With good sporting facilities and plenty of heritage to display, Tewkesbury bids you a pause and enjoy this historic town.
