Great, Friendly Hotel

Would definitely come again.

Only thing that's a nuisance is the parking always having to get someone to move as car park is so small.

We would be happy to go back to the Royal Oak

Just had a wonderful bank holiday weekend at the Royal Oak and would be more than happy to go back there in the future.

The staff were all pleasant and helpful, but didn't pester you unnecessarily. The room was clean and the bed excellent quality. The room was small and basic (not en-suite) but we knew that when we booked, and feel that the price we paid fairly reflected this. We definitely got value for money. The bathroom was very near the room and we didn't have any problem with privacy or cleanliness etc. Breakfast was excellent. The only negative point I could raise would be that people should be aware that the Royal Oak is in the liveliest part of Bowness and a light sleeper, or someone looking for tranquility, may not be entirely happy at night, or when the beer delivery comes very early in the morning. We were happy with our experience there but were aware that it may be noisy when we booked, and feel that the lower prices they charged made it excellent value for money. Will definitely be going back!

Fantastic location, great service and a great place to stay

The hotel could not be in a more central location for Bowness.

The staff are really friendly and helpful and the accommodation and food are great.

Perfect little get away.

The hotel was lovely and just what we needed form a break away from work.

It has a perfect central location, meaning that the shops and restaurants were less than a 5 minute walk. The service was great and breakfast was served greatly. I will definitely be returning for another visit.

The Royal Oak right in the middle of Bowness

Nice friendly welcome, bar food was basic but plentiful and good value.

Rooms very good for the price. Breakfasts too were worth getting up for. Would definitely recommend the Royal Oak to anyone who wants a short stay in the lakes.

Nice relaxing stay

Lovely hotel, staff very helpful and friendly.

I only knocked the room down by a star as it was a bit on the small side. Very clean, close to all amenities. Would book again

Small room for a high price

The room was very small and with no ensuite so the price of £75 was we felt too high.

However, sadly the high prices seem to be common particularly for the south lakes. The breakfast was ok but nothing special - no local produce to show off the Lakeland produce, things presented in packets. However, the customer service was excellent
