    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 :-)

    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.

    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!

    Comfortable and friendly. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them.

    My only minor complaint was that the toilet was behind the door in the ensuite and getting in and out was a little tricky but not a massive problem.

    Staff friendly and welcoming,,location was excellent.the 10per cent discount on food in Royal Oak and Roumors restaurant a nice bonus.very good breakfast nothing to much trouble.We stayed in room 10although this room is above the bar you can't hear it at night.

    Only one small negative is that the bathroom door opens inwards and so is very tight to get in and close the door,otherwise very spacious.

    The location was fantastic, only a 2 min walk from Lake Windermere and all the shops and restaurants in town. The bar was also good and quite busy. And a proper northern breakfast.

    Parking was a struggle.
