We stayed over for 1 night. Great staff, cozy room, very good breakfast. We highly recommend this hotel as it has more soul than other hotels in town. Besides there is a pub which is great for drinking local breweries!

Yet again the royal oak has come up to our expectations. My wife and I always take my parents to Helmsley for their Christmas treat. We always stay at the royal oak, wonderfulstaff, great rooms and a cosy warm welcome, perfect.

An unexpected little gem. Helmsley is lovely particularly at this time of year, the Christmas lights around the market place made for a very festive feeling. The Royal Oak definitely best pub in the village, great beer and food and a warm welcome - particularly from David - albeit a bit of a hustler on the pool table!

Having stopped here before for a special occasion it was the natural choice when I had to work in the area. I advised them I would be checking in late at 9.30pm then got delayed until 11pm. Despite the pub being empty and the fact they'd obviously been waiting for me, I was met with a warm welcome. The room...
