“Very Very Good indeed”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Stayed for nine nights at the Royal Oak in Cornsay Colliery [--], & enjoyed every minute of my stay while working in the area.
Sonya & Ian make you feel very welcome, & the atmosphere in the Royal Oak is very friendly.
I stayed in room two which was a good size, & was comfortable & quiet.
The en suite was a good size as well & the accommodation was clean throughout.
Very good evening meals, but if you are on a diet be careful, the meals so are huge & if you are not careful your waist will expand at an an alarming rate.
I'm hoping to be in the area again some time in March & I will definitely book a room again.
Did I find anything wrong ? the only thing that needs attention is the hot water tap on the wash hand basin which is a little loose, other than that I found everything to my liking. Great place to stay.
