I was travelling with my Father on a long-distance bicycle ride to the far North of Scotland - so what we needed was a friendly, clean, hospitable place to rest our weary bodies. Sonata Guest House proved to surpass our expectations, with superb service - bikes were safely stored away overnight, pots of tea and coffee were made up upon... More

All the basics covered, no unnecessary fripperies, good breakfast, friendly and attentive service which, I suspect, was calibrated in response to the guest (ie not one size fits all). And I know they went the extra mile for a fellow guest, who had to rise at 4:30am. Heartily recommended.

This guest house is better than a five star hotel. We had a very warm welcome from the owners and nothing was too much trouble. You could even choose the time of your breakfast and the breakfast choice was comprehensive. Our room was impeccably clean with tea, coffee and chocolate making facilities and TV. The bathroom was replete with shampoo,... More

Just returned back from our third visit to Chris & Inoka's wonderful retreat of the Sonata. This lovely place is located within a 10 minute stroll outside Kendal's main shopping centre. The owners Chris & Inoka provide a warm and generous welcome to their guests in clean & comfortable rooms. Nothing is too much trouble for these kind hosts. They... More

We stayed in this cozy little guesthouse for one night. The room was small but clean. What made the stay extra pleasant was the very friendly owner (?) lady. The breakfast was good. This place isn't exactly in the centre of the town but near enough for, at least for us.

Despite arriving very early at the guest house we were given a warm welcome, tea and shortbread, and an upgraded room because our hosts hadn't had time to get ours ready. The room we had was luxuriously equipped,clean, comfortable, and with fantastic attention to detail. There was a wide choice of breakfasts, and was beautifully cooked and presented, more like...
