Really loved this hotel! The room we had was the Kendal Castle Suite with lovely views and a super comfy bed. It was a big room with separate bedroom and ensuite. Great location and really friendly staff - can't fault at all.

Loved this hotel! Fantastic location very close to the centre of Kendal and only a few minutes walk for the train station. A bit tricky to find by car but that's due to the one way streets! Once we found it though those minor stresses melted away. All the staff that we met were extremely helpful, polite and friendly. The... More

Lovely spacious family room. Great view over the river. Kids loved the pool which wouldn't normally be within our budget. Polite reception staff. Nice cooked breakfast. Great that we could also bring the dog. Would definitely return.

This hotel has everything you need for a short break. The room was large and very clean, over looking the river. We had an evening meal in the restaurant which was wonderful, we arrived late but the receptionist contacted the restaurant to ensure we could still dine. There was plenty of choice for breakfast from a full English to continental.... More

And all the hotel facilities certainly suggest this is more like a 4* at least. The staff were... More
