We stayed at the Royal Oak for a mini break at the start of September. Graham and Simon are lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome! Set in the small town of Lostwithiel, the hotel was a good base for visiting the surrounding area. Our room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The...

From the moment we got out of the car in the car park to the offer of "can I take that case for you?", to the moment we left, the helpful and friendly owners and their staff made our 11th anniversay weekend one to remember. A good selection of home cooked food at breakfast (and the rest of the day)...

We normally pass through Lostwithiel on our way to Fowey, but this time we extended our holiday slightly and spent 2 nights here for our 10th anniversary before heading to Fowey for a week. On arrival, although it was late and they had finished serving food, the proprietors kindly arranged some food for us which was very welcomed. The following...

Stayed for one night on an unexpected trip to Cornwall and had done a last minute booking. I was very pleased with the friendliness of the staff and with our room and evening meal. That we had onsite parking and that there was no charge for our dog added to the excellent value reflected in our bill. Would I stay...
