Gone Downhill
We have stayed here on three other occasions. But after our last visit we will not return. The whole property is looking tired and could do with some tlc. The curtain and carpet desperately needed a deep clean, some placements on the table had dried on dirt that would not come off. We also found dirty plates and bowls. On our last visit we were greeted by scaffolding around the building. We know that some maintenance will have to be done during holiday time, however it would have been nice to be warned.

Central location & comfy beds
Good central location, with buzzer door entry system which wasn't working when we stopped and with only one key was a real pain if we went out separately. The beds were very comfortable, even the singles which is often not the case, however the twin room had no wardrobe or hanging space, there was a cupboard in the hall but this was being used for storage. We stopped with an elderly relative who found the "couple of steps" to the apartment was actually four with no rail and they struggled on them. The Management Company ask you to strip the beds before you leave and empty the rubbish bin, the bins being stored away from the building and didn't appear to be labeled for recycling. The car space is located across the road behind the buildings on the opposite side of the road, just a short walk away. The kitchen appeared to be well equipped but some areas of the apartment could have been cleaned a little better, especially the shower. NB this property only provides bed linen NOT towels.

Very pleased
I stayed recently with my wife and young son and was more that pleased with our stay. The accommodation was perfectly located, was warm and clean and fabulously furnished. There was no noise from the surroundings and the parking was a welcome relief. Someone had managed to unconnect all of the cables for the television prior to our arrival, so we had to spend 10 minutes reconnecting and retuning and the showers lacked the usual pressure that you would expect but I'm nit-picking. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

Excellent flat in convenient location
The flat is very convenient for everything in Keswick. All the shops and the lake are easy to walk to. It is very close to the agent where the keys are collected and this was easy. The staff were friendly and helpful. Parking is close to the Royal Oak . The parking is reserved and we had no problems with this although space is a premium here and out VW T5 was quite a big vehicle to squeeze in. The Royal Oak public areas are pleasant clean and well maintained. The lift is to be avoided except when absolutely necessary. It worked OK but there was no light and it is very small so all in all a bit scary. The flat itself is spacious. It was clean on arrival. The flat has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped and we appreciated the small touches like 6 dishwasher tabs left for us. It was lovely to use the Denby tableware. There were plenty of dishes and pans. The lounge is very comfortable. Wev particularly appreciated all tyhe lovely books about the Lake District. W had good weather so didnt get round to watching any of the DVD's that are on the shelves. The beds are comfortable. Bedding fresh and clean and bed made up on arrival.. The en suite is small but everything worked. We had a small dog with us and it was suitable for him. There is even a dog bowl in the cupboard! We have rented a lot of holiday accomodation over the years. This rental was no fuss. No deposits or extras charged for electricity or anything else.

Relaxing and enjoyable.
The service was very good I was given the keys to the house when I arrived without having to wait for to long. the home is very homely cosy feel to the place. Royal Oak House is in an ideal location for the shops and the nearby hills. the shops on on our doorstep so we do not have to use the car if i need to do a bit of shopping. I enjoy walking on the hills nearby Keswick with wonderful views on the summits. I had a problem with the lift at the Royal Oak House Hotel sometimes it works on other occasions it wont. example your on ground floor you press one[first floor]nothing happens the doors kept opening and shutting and its a problem when you are caring luggage and shopping etc.Apart from that brilliant holiday.
