nice hotel room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. nice view overlooking the river. this was let down by the fact you are a stones throw away from what seemed to be a bit of a rough pub. lots of screaming and shouting late at night from people coming home from the pub. The staff are very... More

Thank you for your review. People are sometimes surprised at Kendal's size. It is a fairly small town, but has quite a bit going for its size. We're sorry that it was a bit noisy that night. To be honest, it doesn't happen very often as we are far enough outside the centre (with a nice buffer in the River... More

We chose the riverside because as well as being a good base to explore the Lakes it also has a swimming pool which our 10yr old made full use of in the evenings. As a base the hotel served its purpose. We found the staff very friendly at all times and no problems with cleanliness. Although some areas could do... More

Please can I express how much I enjoyed my stay with you on Saturday. I must compliment the reception staff and manageress who allowed me a single night occupancy. Having 4 children it was the perfect opportunity to get away for the night with my wife and we had a fabulous time. I sincerely appreciate this as having stayed at... More

First impressions, the windows and doorways of this hotel obviously hadn't been cleaned in a while! The walk from the hotel to the car park entailed squeezing past a skip and a bus or walking on a busy road. Inside, chairs and sofas are overdue for replacement! The lift is so dark inside it's difficult to see the number buttons,... More

The staff were really friendly and the accommodation was clean and tidy we opted for a mid range accomodation, the swimming pool was a bit smaller than we expected but still a fair size. The jacuzzi wasn't working when we were staying but they did say they were having issues with it. Breakfast was brilliant with a range of choices... More

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights with my two daughters. Found the staff to be really friendly and helpful. Room was clean and food was good. Leisure facilities made the holiday even better for my kids. Good view from window and convenient parking. Good location as close to lakes.

We stopped over at this Hotel to break a journey to the Scottish Highlands. The location was good, being a few minutes walk from the centre of Kendal and the rooms all overlook the river. The hotel had plenty of underground parking which was a bonus as often parking is at a premium in older towns. The staff, especially on... More
