This was our first opportunity to take a break without the kids (in twenty years!) we spent ages looking for a place near Keswick that ticked all the boxes and the Royal Oak came up trumps. We had an absolutely fantastic time, even the weather was perfect. When we arrived we were greeted by Neil, he showed us around and encouraged us to get a walk in before tea and pointed us in the direction of a crag that we could manage to get up and back in time for tea. Our evening meal was plentiful, all homemade and of a very high standard, the hotel was clean and the staff were all delightful (nothing too much trouble). A selling point for me was that there was no TV in the rooms, we spent the evening sitting with the other guests (some of whom have been visiting for more than 40 yrs), a real treat, we felt as though we were among old friends. our room was comfortable and clean, plenty of towels, coffee/tea making facilities and was peaceful (the hotel appeared fully occupied but we weren't disturbed by any noise) Breakfast was a combination of self serve cereal, fruit, yoghurt etc followed by a cooked breakfast, again of a very high standard served to us by the staff.
We don't usually revisit but will definitely be going back to this placeMore
