Stayed in this B&B last night. Rooms are very well laid out and beds comfortable. Breakfast was a joy, freshly cooked, hot and exactly what we ordered. Cannot praise highly enough and will definitely stay here again if we ever return to Knaresborough.

My friend and I stayed at the Old Royal Oak Hotel for two nights. We were delighted with the friendliness of all staff. Our room was beautiful, everything we could possibly have wanted was provided. Our breakfasts were first class and we enjoyed them very much.

The rooms were just beautiful. Comfortable and luxurious. The tasty full English breakfast set us up for our day at the Great Yorkshire Show and the hostess was just lovely, Warm, friendly and extremely attentive providing advice about travel to the show and the local attractions.

I booked in advance for a weekend away to celebrate my partners birthday. I asked if there was anything they could do to help make the weekend a bit more special, if they could recommend a nice resteraunt in the area to go for a meal the night we were staying and not only did they go above and beyond...
