The B&B is situated in a really quite location on a hill and I had two uninterrupted night's sleep with absolutely no outside (or... More

Stayed in November 2013 and June 2014 - been meaning to post ever since! A very warm and friendly experience (including being invited to go and see the fireworks with Richard and Wendy and their son on Bonfire Night 2013 as I was going out to see them myself). 'My' room had everything you could possibly need. Looking forward to... More

It was very clean & homely. The host was very welcoming, friendly and genuine in offering her assistance. We only stayed for the one night but would definitely recommend it to anyone. The bed and breakfast & host both deserve the high ratings! A*

Really enjoyed staying at Hillside B&B - beautiful, tasteful and impeccable décor, exceptionally clean, tidy and quiet. Rooms are cosy, self-contained and private. Was very comfortable. Top quality breakfast items available, Gluten Free best by arrangement but managed to get GF sausages with my English Breakfast and some lovely fruit. Welcoming, friendly and supportive hosts, helpful with locality and where... More

Stayed for a weekend in November and enjoyed it. The room was comfortable and very clean and Richard and Wendy are friendly and welcoming hosts. The situation is great for easy access to Kendal centre and the car parking was fine with the Residents' Pass supplied by Richard. Would certainly stay again and recommend to others.

I stayed here for just one night as I cycled from Lands End to John O' Groats. This B&B is really very comfortable. I had a single room which was small but perfectly adequate and nicely presented. The owners were very helpful indeed, and provided me with a safe place to store the bike overnight - very important for me!... More

We spent 2 nights in the Hillside, excellent location (p a very steep bank - hence Hillside) 2 minutes from town centre. Very clean. Very friendly, what the owners didn't know about the lake district wasn't worth knowing. Very Helpful. Would difinately stay again
