Likes:
The accommodation was well placed in the centre of town but nice and quiet.
Dislikes:
The room decor was very dated.
Response from Old Royal Oak:
Hi Delia,
Sorry for the delay in responding to your review. I am sure you would be pleased to hear that all the rooms have now undergone redecoration. While they were always very clean, I agree that a few of the pictures were a little dated. Especially the historic photos of Knaresborough, The river, Mother Shipton's Cave etc.
Hope to see you again sometime - I am sure you will be delighted!

Very friendly staff who couldn't do enough to help
Dislikes:
TV painfully slow on Teletext
Response from Old Royal Oak:
Hi Trevor,
Thank you for all the positive comments, shame about the slow teletext though. To be honest I never use it but since you last stayed here all the rooms have undergone a facelift which included new TV's with built in DVD players too. I will check them out and see if the teletext is faster.

As for the breakfast and the evening meals - It's even better! We now make all our own sausages and burgers on site and our new award winning chef is amazing. Come and try it - You'll love it!
