Excellent location and the breakfast was beautiful. Friendly staff.
Rooms are a little dated and it was a shared bathroom.
They had no heating on and I had to get them to give me a separate heater as the room was cold. The room was very small and I had to share a bathroom
Everything was great the breakfast was amazing nothing was too much for the staff it was a great say.
Central location friendly staff .
Staff so nice and friendly nothing was too much for them .great stay .
It was close to the waterfront and was a good place to cruise the lake. Staff were all very pleasant and the food was enjoyable. Our room and bathroom was a good size too.
We found the bed too hard and felt it would benefit from a good quality mattress cover.
Location excellent. Large comfy bed. Reasonably priced pub food. Parking on site.
Cleanliness in bathroom could have been better. Areas of car park very steep, car handbrake needs to be efficient. Dinning room (breakfast area) dark and dingy.
We found the staff very helpful and friendly with good food and great atmosphere.
There were adequate parking for all but once parked you are on foot. Lake and shops are just minutes away.
Everything the whole package was great.
Very near to the lake and nearby activities. Very helpful and nice staff. We had the chance to be given room no. 10, where guests have their breakfast brought up in their room instead of downstairs. The room has a view over the mountains and very near to the markets and the bus route.
The toilet has 2 seperate water tabs, hot & cold on both sides. I kept wondering how could I use both at the same time! You have to lift up your luggage upstairs as there is no lift (I was offered help by the owners). There is no telephone, refrigerator nor a safe in the room. TV channels limited.
this was a very central accomodation very clean comfortable and an eccellent breakfast. the staff were very attentive. we would recommend this to our friends.
Central location for town and lake shore, friendly staff, real ales, bar facilities and restaurant.
Complicated car parking
The Royal Oak is an excellent pub with beautiful rooms. Me and my wife stayed for 3 days in room 5 which was a beautiful room which we could not find fault with, we even had the option of having our breakfast served to our room at a time of our choice. The staff were all friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us. I would recommend the Royal Oak to anyone visiting Bowness
I think there may have been something wrong with the pool table because my wife beat me 6-4 :-)
Friendly staff. Clean accommodation food good
If you wanted to bath after 8 o'clock there was no hot water . The hot water run on an Emerson heater and it had all been used .
staff, breakfast, location.
booked the small double, receipt was for 1 person rang up and spoke to them. said there would be 2 people. was charged £20 a night for extra breakfast. But apart from this it was lovely.
how polite your staff were,clean rooms ,beer,location.information
breakfast a bit late,bed to soft,no iron,nowhere to dry clothes.
As a repeat guest,everything excellent.
NEAR TO WINDERMERE LAKE AND ALL EATING PLACES. THE STAFF WERE VERY NICE.
THE PARKING WAS VERY TIGHT AND RESTRICTED. LIKELY TO HAVE YOUR CAR SCRATCHED OR DENTED. THE DRINKS WERE EXPENSIVE TO SOME OTHER BARS. THE FOOD WAS AVERAGE.
The bar was excellent with good choice of beers and a reasonable menu. Guests are given voucher for 10% off meals in bar.
The food &friendlyness of staff.
Car park awkward.
Welcoming, homely. Bottle of wine for our anniversary was a nice touch. Evening meal was excellent.
Parking a bit tight but well handled by staff.
Comfortable rooms, pleasant and helpful staff and excellent freshly cooked breakfasts.
Breakfast was excellent
Just on edge of shopping area, 2 min to lakeside, but road quiet, so could sleep with window open. Good breakfast. Cozy ambiance. very little noise from bar area ( week nights in May, could get busier into the summer) Plenty of outside tables for drinks on warm nights.Unlimited tea and coffee supplies in room. Good comfortable pub accommodation.
Not so much dislikes..after all it is an old building in a mountainous area but car parking is a bit of an adventure and if you don't like stairs ask not to be put on top floor!
