Excellent location on the market square. Would be described as a pub with rooms, but this would not do justice to it. The room was of good size and well-equipped. Breakfast offered a wide choice was cooked to order. Parking was easy in nearby streets. Dinner was available - honest pub-type food, well above average in quality. The couple who... More

Just returned from a night stay at this fab B&B. Arrived just after 9pm at night, we were quickly shown to our room which was beautifully clean and spacious. Coffee machine and waters available. Even tho this was a Friday night above a busy pub there was very little noise and certainly did not disturb our sleep. Full English breakfast... More

Lovely room ,view to the castle-room 4.,Super-fluffy towels,comfortable room and bed,large portions-we could have shared the Yorkshire pud.We parked in the square,and paid for an hour in the morning, but could have found a free space not far away. Would stay again if in the area.

On the market square in the gorgeous N Yorks town of Helmsley, The Royal Oak is a friendly, no-nonsense pub with good beer, great breakfasts and excellent, recently refurbished bedrooms. Pleasure to stay there.

Ticked most boxes in terms of easy place to stay overnight for local wedding - room had an eclectic mix of interesting styles of decor but fine overall. Breakfast was perfectly good. Reasonable value considering charges of other local competitors

No parking, but a short stroll from the 'Pay & Display' Long Stay (£5.80 for 24 hrs). Room (4) was fine, with a view of the castle west tower. Staff were polite, friendlyand welcoming. A good traditional lunch & evening menu, reasonably priced, and of good quality & quantity. Breakfast was excellent with a varied choice. We will return!,

We wanted a good but basic place to stay for the start of Cleveland Way and this met expectations. Spacious rooms and bathroom, all very clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Food good with some unusual specials...I had a crab salad so was able to avoid a "greasy" start to our walk. Breakfast was a bit slow coming but we wanted... More

We stayed midweek to visit Helmsley castle and Rievaulx Abbey. The hotel is in a perfect location on Helmsley square. The staff are lovely and our room was roomy and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was included and was very nice, with lots of choice. We also ate lunch and dinner and was very impressed with the quality and prices. We will... More

Just stayed 2 nights at the Royal Oak. Staff were very helpful and friendly and our dog was welcome. Breakfast was fine and Sunday lunch was very nice. Our room was spacious and clean, as was the bathroom. We parked in a long stay car park, a couple of minutes' walk away. Ok for a couple of night but would... More

The staff at the hotel are very professional and obviously well trained. The food is well prepared and the ales well kept. The improvement since my last visit during June 2014 is tremendous.Long may these improvements continue.
