Positive Reviews

Fantastic service provided by staff

Past guests that stayed at the Royal Oak were thrilled with the service they received from the staff members. From the owners to the bar personnel, the customer service provided was regularly considered really friendly, attentive and accommodating.

Rooms spacious and wonderfully appointed

For the most part, the rooms at the accommodation were highly rated. Previous visitors noted that as well as being spacious, the rooms - in keeping with the style of the building throughout - are said to be very cosy and well-appointed.

Delicious homemade food

The food served up by the Royal Oak was popular with the vast majority of former guests. Along with the traditional and homemade lunch/evening meals being thoroughly enjoyed, the complimentary full English breakfast was a highlight for many.

Negative Reviews

Temperamental heating

A small minority have had issues with heating when staying at the Royal Oak. Numerous recent visitors have claimed that, along with the central heating not working as expected, the showers/baths took an unexpectedly long time to sufficiently warm up.

Comfort of beds questioned

Although a rather uncommon opinion overall, a noticeable amount of past guests were disappointed about the quality of the accommodation's beds. From being lumpy to producing a disruptive creaking noise, various bed-related problems have been reported.

Wi-Fi availability unreliable

Based on feedback in general, the Wi-Fi supplied was one of the weakest aspects about staying at the Royal Oak - something that was partly attributed to its remote location in the Lake District. In particular, the range of the Wi-Fi was criticised on occasion by previous visitors.
