Thoroughly enjoyed my trip. Evening food was fantastic followed by an amazing breakfast. Extremely comfortable room with fabulous facilities . Loved the coffee/ tea machine. The little extras of shampoo etc in the bathroom were much appreciated .

A very dog friendly hotel in a dog friendly town. Also a good place to stay for humans. Location right on the square, excellent breakfast and a comfortable room. Food and drink very good value. Welcoming atmosphere.

Helpful friendly polite staff. Great food and clean too. Locals are helpful and friendly too. Go exploring and find new places rather than stay where you know. The walk to Rievaulx has breathtaking views.

A lovely place to stay with very friendly owners and staff. The room was very comfortable and a good size with a large bathroom and all amenities. Delicious breakfasts with very good selection and tasty reasonably priced evening meals. Would definitely stay again

Found an absolute gem right here. Milli was made so welcome and boy did she milk it 😁. The owners are very pet friendly as they have 2 bedlingtons themselves. The room was spotlessly clean, if the room had been £15 more I wouldn't of hesitated paying it. Well guys will soon be back.

I found The Royal Oaks to be a comfortable place to stay and the hosts were welcoming. I found the blackout blind a great bonus; it helped me get a good night's sleep. A hearty breakfast was provided, and was nicely cooked.

A great place to visit for pub food, great friendly staff and nice size portions. Our food was amazing and we were completely stuffed when we left. The selection of ales was also very impressive with a good selection of guest/small brewery ales. Very busy so book ahead.

We had a two night stay at the Royal Oak. Our hosts and staff were excellent and the food was lovely. We had a room overlooking the market square and this was perfect. The room was large, very clean and tidy.

In the center of Helmsley, right back to the castle. I loved this little hotel. Nice staff, clean and comfort room. Good breakfast, and good food at the restaurant. I'll be back for sure very soon. Enjoyed this hotel!

Staff were very accommodating; couldn't do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The room was large and very clean. The bed was also large and very comfortable. We had a good nights sleep and, although we overlooked the square, there was no noise to disturb us. We would definately stay there again and highly reccomend the hotel
