Travelled to this lovely town 20 years before, loved it then, love it now. This was my second stay at the Royal Oak. It has improved greatly in twenty years. This hotel has been around since the seventeen century, it has been updated with some sensitivity towards it history. If you want modern boutique slickness, stay elsewhere. The floors here are charmingly uneven and the decor reflects its history. But there are some modern amenities, the bath contained a waterfall shower head with the older but still in good shape porcelain fixtures. The spacious room had an electric fireplace and there was plenty of power to recharge our devices. I should note that we did unplug the trouser press and the electric fireplace to use the outlets as we were running with four devices. The room was fastidiously clean and. My niece loved the biscuits housekeeping left for us. When she told them, they made sure she had a generous supply. I found the beds and bedding were fine and comfortable for my bad back. The ladies behind the desk wear charming and extremely helpful. Jennifer and Victoria were especially helpful. The restaurants were excellent and a good value. There was plenty of parking and it was free. The only negative is that the view from the room was over the Grill roof and to see the forest one had to look to the right. In this hotel, one May have a view and some street noise or a quiet room with a so, so, view. We had plenty of lovely views driving around the area, so the quiet room was more than satisfactory . I will note that I never stayed in the more modern building of the hotel and cannot comment.
