Classic Tudor styled timber frame pub & hotel with a quintessentially English feel. Stayed in a cosy room (205) in late July. It was fun to get to it through a labyrinth of ancient stairs and corridors. Clean bathroom and room facing the High Street....More

About
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, ...More 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. Less

Hi. There is a caravan park behind the abbey which can cater to long wheelbase vehicles which may be suitable for you, it’s only about a 5 minute walk from there to the Hop Poles.
