We had a wonderful stay here during our trip around the UK. The service was excellent - really friendly, helpful warm and welcoming. The room was a little on the small side, but was very clean and cosy nonetheless. The decor and interior was really lovely and in keeping with the location. The room was serviced whilst we were out... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, the Royal Oak had just been re-vamped, the room was fantastic, clean and cosy, we booked a table for our first night, they managed to squeeze us in despite the restaurant being booked which was a great touch, food was good, no complaints here, no complaints with breakfast either, unfortunately the faults crept up, no...

The food was good when it finally arrived. Pleasant interior and atmosphere. Let down by amateurish service. The young staff were charming but didn't seem to be experienced enough to handle a busy, high season dinner. ========== We did not stay at the hotel

This was our 1st visit to keswick and decided to have lunch at the royal oak. As title would suggest the atmosphere was lovely and the decoration brilliant. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Food took a bit longer than would have liked but was a busy period so not too negative. I had the burger with chips. The chips were... More

We stayed here as we were in the Lakes for a friend's wedding. From the outset, the staff were eager to assist, ensuring we had somewhere to change before our check in time; this was greatly appreciated after our long journey from Yorkshire. All staff were friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The pub has clearly been recently... More

The staff were lovely and breakfast was good and plentiful. Some maintenance work was carried out in our rom during our stay - the gap between the tiles and the wall was filled in and the toilet roll holder was secured to the wall - which was good to see. However, when we arrived in our room there were sticky... More

Me and a mate stayed at the Royal Oak (Keswick) after doing the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon (SLMM) on 13th July. It was a great choice. My mate's room had a brilliant view over the Borrowdale Fells. I had to change rooms because the weather had been extremely hot and the recently painted window wouldn't open, so the original room...

We ate at the Royal oak after rave reviews from friends, sadly it did not live up to our hopes. The Inn itself is immaculate and they have done a great job on the refurb, the facilities we used were all very clean, our waitress was lovely and we would not criticize her performance in any way. The let down... More

Booked the Royal Oak in Keswick as we had planned a two day break to do some fell walking. A good choice, the place has recently been fully refurbished to a high standard, we had a nice airy room, the weather was really hot, and the big sash window opened up nicely on to the pedestrian area opposite the Moot...
