We was recommended this hotel by friends. Great hotel great location once you navigate the one way system round Kendal. Food was tasty and fresh we will be returning hopefully in the autumn. For a pre Xmas break.

We stayed as part of a Wowcher deal in late January as a 21st birthday get away. We were reasonably impressed, underground parking and room was clean and bed comfortable. We did stay in January so didn't expect amazing weather, but the weather had effected the windows - condensation the entire stay so couldn't even see the river view we... More

Thanks for your review and constructive comments. We are pleased you found us to be good value but are dismayed at your comments about our food. We usually receive such high accolades for both breakfast and dinner offerings and are disappointed to have let you down during your stay. We are pleased you still had a nice stay and found... More

Overall the hotel is brilliant. Me and my girlfriend stayed for two nights, bed and breakfast. And although the weather wasn't on our side the hotel made it a warm and welcoming stay. When it rained heavily they even offered us an umbrella for when we went out for dinner at night. Breakfast was great too, there were a lot... More

Room clean, large bed, plenty of space very comfortable bed and chairs. Bathroom well stocked with toiletries and towels. Radiator towel very hot so beware. Restaurant breakfast was buffet style which suited us but you... More

We have just a lovely couple of days here. We were warmly welcomed by the lady in reception. The room was a good size and very comfortable. Lovely toiletries and towels. Just one little gripe - the room was very hot. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent. The spa is small but the jacuzzi... More

Some aspects of this hotel were really nice but others were not so good: 1. Nice big bed, but with duvet fitted wrong way round, easy to sort out though. 2. Nice bathroom but shower had temperature control knob missing making it hard to use. That should have been fixed as surely the cleaner would see this? 3. Excellent views... More

Just returned from a weekend in the Lake District and stopped over at the Riverside Hotel. This hotel is quite deceiving from the front but once inside it was perfect. Our room, which was on the third floor, was spacious, clean, well equipped and comfortable; added to which we had a lovely view of the River Kent. We had breakfast... More

We actually booked an Amazon offer at the Newby Bridge Hotel but on arrival there the hotel was closed; undergoing a major refurbishment. Special mention to on-site builder Paul who quickly booked us in at The Riverside in Kendal. We found the hotel with no trouble and we were very warmly welcomed by Sophie and the staff who had been... More

I've frequented all the hotels in this group and have rated them highly. This hotel is one of the few that offers a single night occupancy and I love coming here. This visit was marred on our arrival by us being placed in a family room with an adjacent door to another room that was unlocked and occupied. Reception were... More

We thank you for your review and stay. We are very sorry that your noisy neighbours impacted negatively upon your stay. We were, of course, unaware that they would be so noisy at the time of room allocation. We do have a night manager that can be contacted if guests need anything at all, but I'm sure the next time...

The location, staff and comfort of this hotel makes it an ideal stop on business. I would recommend it to anyone. The hotel has a Spa and pool which I did not use but looking lovely. The fact that free parking is a bonus, especially would be so in the holiday season.
