Stayed at this hotel for one night. Yes there is a bad smell of cigarettes but the manageress was extremely friendly and helpful. It is an old building with some interesting points and lovely old furniture. Our room (we were told) is the only twin room in the hotel and is located at the top and at the front of... More

Hotel was on a good location for our gig at "The Brewery" also for shopping, lovely breakfast, in need of a good makeover, smells really bad of cigarettes, would stay here again but only for location, quite expensive for the run down hotel, we have stayed in some fantastic hotels for the same price, very overpriced.

Myself and my husband spent a couple of days in Kendal for my husband's birthday and so glad we chose the Highgate Hotel. Linda the owner was very nice and couldn't do enough for us. We were given room 2 at the back.of the hotel which was quiet as the front of the hotel is on the main road. The... More

This is a 17th Century House situated on the main street but with excellent secure parking to the rear for cars/motorcycles. All the floors, doors and stairs are at interesting angles and provide a unique character to the property. If you like and Ibis or a Premier don't stay here. If you want interest and a personal welcome by the... More

As a child, I was sometimes packed off to my Grandparents' house. They were the only smokers in the family. A stay at the Highgate Hotel brought the memories flooding back. It's not all bad - although the location is noisy, even for rooms at the side - but the overwhelming prominence of tobacco has certainly taken it off the... More

I really liked this hotel. It’s a lovely old building, situated on a busy street. Despite this I wasn’t much bothered by any noise from the traffic. The hotel has its own private car park, which you need a code for in order to enter. Since one of the rooms we needed was a family room, we had to call... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Highgate Hotel. Built in the early 1600's as a physicians home. The rooms are small but more than adequate, the location is great for walking around the village and the staff are super nice and supportive. Jill, the proprietor, is delightful and helpful. As we were leaving Jill told us there is a ghost... More

Stayed for 4 nights in this lovely grade 2 listed hotel for The Wake The Lakes Festival, the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and clean, it had everything we needed. The breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day.

We were lucky to have a sat. nav. in our rented car as it can be difficult to find the hotel in a busy town such as Kendal. It is located on a busy street with off road parking at the back of the hotel. You need a code number in order to enter the car park. The code is... More
