We rented two rooms, a bit last moment for the long weekend. Our room was great, recently refurbished, with fixtures as good as many hotels with bigger brand names and price tags. Bed was very nice, and the bathroom was proper luxury, with superb quality locally sourced 'bath house' branded soaps, lotions etc. there was even a 'shaving kit' and... More

We have just returned from our New Years Eve break in Kendal where we stayed at the Sonata Guest House. Chris and Inoka are perfect hosts and can't do enough for you. The breakfasts were delicious! We will definitely return later on this year. I would recommend this guest house to anybody looking for a relaxing break away.

The room I stayed in wasn't one of the refurbished rooms but was nevertheless perfectly adequate for a three-night stay in December. A hot and powerful shower proved welcome after... More

I stayed at Sonata for 2 nights during the recent Kendal Mountain festival. It was a great base for which to access the events, with town being only a few minutes walk away. Chris was the perfect, welcoming host who made myself and my family feel most at home, we were able to come and go as we pleased which... More
