The landlady is the perfect hostess, the room is way beyond what you get in a normal B and B . Made to feel welcome and the best breakfast I've had in a long while. I would highly recommend staying here over the hotels in the Kendal area. I've stayed in most over the years and this by far is... More

This was the first time that I had stayed in the Sonata and I was most impressed with every aspect of my stay. From the moment I booked I was made welcome with handy hints on how best to get to the B&B from the Oxenholm railway station. Inoka and Chris went out their way to ensure that I was... More

It is obvious from the moment you step through the front door, care and attention to detail were paramount in the owner's minds. What they have managed to achieve in a Victorian mid-terrace property is an excellent example of what can be done if you set your mind to it. The hosts were friendly, sociable and addressed everyone by name.... More

A very welcome and welcoming stopover on out way south from Aberdeenshire. A feast of a breakfast, well presented, along with Inoka and Chris's friendly service. Would not hesitate to recommend this comfortable guest house to anyone. Sheila & Pete

Have stayed in the Sonata many times before under the previous management and am pleased to say there have been numerous positive changes. New personnel are very professional, welcoming and very friendly. Some minor changes have had significant effects; fresh flowers in the rooms, new toiletries in bathroom, new table linens and crockery, new decor downstairs and am really looking... More

Stayed for one night to attend a friend's birthday celebrations. I couldn't have received a warmer welcome from genuinely warm and hospitable hosts. They even moved their car so I could park close to the property! The property is a very attractive old traditional building and the room was immaculate with lovely toiletries supplied in the bathroom. Town centre is... More

We only stayed one night while on business but everything was fantastic and great value. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The room was nicely appointed and very clean and the breakfast was superb. What more could you ask for?! We wish the owners the best of luck for the future and would highly recommend to anyone.

We stayed in a twin room on NYE as a last minute booking and was over whelmed by our stay at the Sonata. We was greeted by the friendliest of faces and nothing was too much trouble making this a real home from home visit. The room was immaculate and warm, mince pies and mulled wine was brought to our...

Stayed at Sonata Guest House for only one night as we were going to a concert in the town. We spent the afternoon in the town just as it was getting in the Christmas spirit, had a lovely evening meal pre concert at a French restaurant, "dejavu"' very close to Guest House which I would recommend.

Thank you for your comments and we hope to see you again - the Brewery Arts Centre has lots going on. In fact we got tickets to see Omid Djalili the comedian later this year.
