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.

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...

Friendly owners and comfortable B&B. Lots of delicious food to choose from for breakfast. You'll feel welcome and well looked after. And the B&B is easy walking distance from the train station and town centre.

The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Dining room and lounge are clean and tidy with an excellent breakfast. Our room was clean and tidy but space a little limited, but this is a guest house not a hotel. The only downside is lack of parking. On the upside the town centre is 2 mins away on foot. Kendal is...

We had a lovely time here. We checked in with my wife and 2 teenage daughters. Inoka and Chris couldn't have been sweeter or more helpful. They are professional hoteliers who are starting a B&B with the hope of differentiating themselves through great customer service. We parked just in front of the hotel. The rooms for clean and comfortable. We... More

Inoka and Chris are delightful, friendly hosts who are happy to assist you at all times which reflects in the standard of their bed and breakfast. Our room was exceptionally clean and provided all the extras that you would expect from a hotel. An additional bonus was a pass to a local spa, which we took full advantage of on... More

The owners went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.. Went out and bought little extras for my son when they heard what he likes. Great breakfast choices to start your day and lovely location..

Very friendly and helpful people. Lovely clean rooms, linen etc with some really thoughtful and caring touches that make it that bit more special. The standard is very high and deserving of the 4 star rating. Loved our stay, great choice Pass to use a nearby hotel spa was a godsend when it poured down! Would recommend for sure.
