My wife and i have just enjoyed another fabulous few days at Hillside in Kendal. It is our 3 visit and second review. We were staying to see a concert at the brewery arts centre which is just a short walk away. We really like the new front steps and hand rail and as usual Wendy cooks a first class... More

I slept over at the Hillside B & B on business. The staff gave me a warm welcome, showed me to my room and was lovely. The room was spotless, the bed was comfy, the room was warm and the shower was great. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate provided in the room as well as fluffy towels. Access to free... More

Just a perfect place to stay away from home. I loved everything: the staff, the service, the comfort, the food, the accommodation itself and most especially the cleanliness! Also, dining utensils were clean - I'm very particular with this and yes, I was impressed!

Expect a warm welcome from Wendy and Richard. The moment you enter through a distinctive front door, the excellent standard and finish of the property is evident. The rooms are spotless, great finish and provide an excellent nights sleep. Richard and Wendy provide a wealth of information and local knowledge.

This is a lovely place, basic but brilliant! Wendy and Richard are really welcoming, the house is warm and comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Lovely shower, plenty of hot water. Nothing more to say!

Terrible steep hill, it is not called Hillside without good reason. Very hard to find once you reach Beast Banks, you see a gate with 1 to 5 written on it so you expect to find 4, Hillside, there. Yet what you get is the need for a phonecall as place is way way up on opposite side of the... More

Clean and comfortable, excellent breakfast, but the local knowledge and helpfulness of the the host, Richard, was what made this B&B outstanding. He warned us that the pub we were planning to walk to for lunch at didn't serve food on Sundays and suggested another that did, suggested booking at a recommended restaurant if we planned to have an evening...

This excellent B&B is up quite a steep hill, as the name shows, but don't let this put you off! The building is in attractive surroundings and a number of rooms have long distance views. The B&B is on Beast Banks, and in the Museum of Lakeland Life, the old Post Office from Beast Banks is the one used in... More
