Overall to be perfectly honest I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was lovely, cozy, and clean with the added bonus of allowing dogs to stay.. Staff are very friendly and the bar down stairs serves nice beers. The room is tired is some places however, with a simple paint job needed in some parts. The toilet...

Very friendly and helpful staff, sadly the food was very poor. Nothing homemade, frozen chips etc. Only plus side is that it's very dog friendly. The actual bar is very nice. But will not be eating here again.

Booked the smallest/cheapest room as I was staying on my own for one night. What a pleasant surprise really well appointed room with everything you needed, clean and coupled with a welcoming, quick check in and excellent breakfast it made this a very enjoyable stay and I/we will definitely return and recommend to others. Thanks Royal Oak :-)

Had the opportunity to pop in for a quick drink whilst in keswick for the weekend. Nice atmosphere with a range of around 4 real ales and 4 Gins (along with a lot more other drinks). It does seem more catered to those dining, however we did pop in around 7.

We stayed in Keswick for our usual break after half term and specifically booked a meal at The Royal Oak as we had had a superb evening on a previous anniversary celebration. We booked a specific table and were told at the time of booking that it was not a problem however when we arrived the table was occupied and...

Had a couple of nights here recently. The manager and staff were excellent. The breakfast was first class and food in the restaurant was brilliant. Great location for shops, Derwent Water, pubs and restaurants. Only downside is the parking overnight off site. I would defiantly return here.

Husband, teenage daughter and I were in Keswick last weekend for a half term break and we called in on a very cold afternoon for some lunch. We were all very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the food we chose (which is unusual for a fussy 14 year old who thought the fish finger sandwich was amazing!)....
