Spent 4 nights at Hillside and if I visit the Lake District again I will definitely return. Spotlessly clean, lovely room, plentiful breakfast with lots of choice. Richard was really helpful with information on places to visit, travel suggestions and so on. I was comfortable and happy staying there.

My wife and I spent three nights at Hillside and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. Richard was amazingly helpful about giving us tips about getting around town and the region. The breakfasts were very good, too: variety, plentiful, and tasty. There also was a cooling fan in the room. I would recommend Hillside... More

Lovely very comfortable clean room, very central location, very pleasant and accomodating hosts and a fabulous breakfast. Richard allowed to retain the on street parking permit until late afternoon after we had checked out which was a very nice gesture as it saved us moving the car and having to pay for parking.

Hillside is up a steep hill, not a problem for us but might be for others. Richard very friendly and accommodating. Came and went as we pleased. Room very clean lovely view from window. Would recommend this hotel to friends as it's very close to the city centre.

A great place to stay in Kendal, just a short walk downhill to the centre of town. An immaculate guest house with parking permits available. Wendy cooks a fine breakfast which is served by Richard with a smile and a chat. If you are a single, ask for Room 1 which is large with spotless en-suite.

Richard and Wendy were more than helpful in every way possible. Richard suggested some great walking routes and even lent us his own walking maps. The rooms were exceptionally clean, the food was home cooked, the overall service was excellent. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you both for making our holiday even more enjoyable.

The owners are very very helpful, they provide suggestions and make you feel at home. All is superclean and room smells nicely. My English is horrible but I just leave this comment for future travellers and to say thanks to Richard and Wendy for being so nice and professional at the same time.

Wendy and Richard were very helpful. They have a very clean and cozy B&B. There was nothing to dislike. Breakfast was great and if you are looking for an early evening supper we recommend the 'Blue Moon' in town.
