Friendly small hotel.
Pleasant stay in a friendly small hotel. Manager was helpful, room was comfortable and breakfast was good. Only downsides were: no TV reception, one of the sockets didn’t work and the toilet macerator was really noisy. I parked outside the hotel at what appeared to be hotel parking, but received a parking ticket. I wish I had been informed that the parking didn’t belong to the hotel and would need to be paid for.

Helmsley & the Royal Oak
The Royal Oak is well positioned in the market place and is run by friendly welcoming staff. The Pub Grub menu is limited but the the food was excellent and the beer was superb. Helmesley has a lot going for ir, we would definately go again!

6/10 Good

The room was pleasent and clean although the pub itself was very "tired". Breakfast was nice but i asked for sausage bacon beans on toast, and they basically gave me a childs portion - one sausage, 2 bacon 1 toast and a spoon full of beans. I do not think ths was worth £100 a night.

Delightful
Booked here because it was dog-friendly and convenient for an event I was attending nearby. The Royal Oak massively exceeded my expectations with a comfortable room which was immaculately clean, friendly and helpful staff, and a really great breakfast. even had a great view of Helmsley Castle from my window!
