The Royal Oak at Keswick
Ranked #70 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 October 2012

A warm welcome awaited us for our stay in Keswick. We had seen there was no parking, but soon sorted that out with advice from Tim. Our room was warm comfortable and quiet, Dinner in the restsaurant was good, the bar had a nice buzz about it even on a cold October wednesday night which is always a good sign. Breakfast selection good - we particularly enjoyed the eggs benedict and the scrambled eggs on toast..( hot and firm - a dish often served watery and luke warm). Towels were large and fluffy.Down sides .. slow braodband connection and shower flow could have been better.. but small things...

We paid £100 for a very small room. The shower sliding doors were broken. The toilet flush was also faulty. The communal areas were tatty and needed decoration and the carpet was dirty and smelt.
Breakfast was average and the waitress brought tea instead of coffee!

We stayed at the Inn at Keswick with 2 of our Grand Children, the staff were fantastic and the room was very good/clean and very pleasant. The staff went out of their way to help us with 2 young children and nothing was too much trouble for any one of the staff. We forgot to take the kids Inno tabs when we left and the Hotel, packaged them up and sent them to my home in Manchester. I would reccomend this hotel and its nice to find people who care about their guests as much as the staff at the Inn did.

Room Tip: The family room was pefect for 4.

Lovely friendly staff. The room was large, bed slightly too hard, but plenty big for my wife and I.Aas a big man, I was unable to get into the shower, and had to make do with washing in the sink. Food good fire alarm went off three times whilst we were there for three nights. all false alarms.

Room Tip: Ask for a character room.

I booked this hotel because it was within my budget. Booked for my wedding anniversary and the wife had never been to the lakes before. When we arrived and were given a room an the first floor. There was not enough room to swing a mouse! never mind the cat. However we were not happy with this and the fact that there was a lot of black mould on the shower stall walls, and a cracked wash basin. We went to reception and when asked if we were happy we informed them Not realy , told them about the dirt and cracked basin and other stuff we werent happy with. Tracy (staff) showed the wife the family room which was vacant and asked if we would like it as a free upgrade. Well of cousrse we said yes. We had brought a botle of champagne for us to enjoy. Chilling it was not a problem for them and even when we asked if we could have it with our evening meal there was not a problem. Great staff, great food a nd good drink. Parking not a problem if you ask the staff for a map. We found a spot just round the corner from the Inn within 2 minutes walk and no fees or restrictions. My rating is very good on all aspects. The sirloin was one of the best I have ever had anywhere, itmelted in the mouth. Then the Lamb casserole that my wife had was excellent. Plenty of breakfast for us and black pudding too if you want it on. Go back again and again for the fruit and juces . Lovey grub.

Room Tip: Family room or a large one is best.

We recently called in after a walk up Catbells and really enjoyed the traditional Sunday roasts that were available. I had the beef whilst my partner had gammon. Both had very generous portions of tasty meat, lovely roast potatoes with an acceptable amount of veg. Service was quick and the pub has a nice relaxing atmosphere. The menu caused some confusion as it said Monday to Saturday but was also available on the Sunday.

We ordered two meals at a quiet time ib the pub. Husbands food was great (steak pie) I had fish and chips. My chips were hard in the middle, the fish batter was uncooked and sloppy. So it got sent back with the minimum of fuss from the lovely staff.

Landlord came over and asked if all was ok, we explained that one meal had to go back. Landlord says " well no one,s perfect - we all have a bad day! " What? Where did that come from?
Anyway, the meal was returned to me, freshly cooked and truly delicious...so there you go!

Thank you for comments – I’m truly sorry that one of the meals was not up standard, and that it needed to be returned, but really pleased to hear that second time around it was ‘truly delicious’. I hope that you’ll choose to dine with us again next time you’re visiting Keswick.
