The hosts were charming. The room was comfortable and had everything I expected and quite a lot more. The wifi worked well. The location is excellent in the centre of town. The breakfast was great. Overall value for money was exceptional.

I stayed in the Sonata for a month as I was made homeless due to the recent flooding in Kendal. I was treated like a king and didn't really want to leave. I've stayed in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas but it's not a patch on this quaint little B&B. You couldn't wish to meet two nicer people as... More

The hosts were very nice people and very welcoming. They made our stay a pleasure. The room was very good as was the breakfast. The only minor downside was that the mattress was a little uncomfortable.

Thank you for the feedback and your kind comments. Sorry you did not like the mattress. Ours are Hypnos 1400 pocket sprung mattresses, the same brand but more than the 1000 sprung pocket one Lenny Henry loves on the Premier Inn adverts! The particular mattress was purchased just over a year ago, so is quite new. It also has a... More

High quality toiletries, bath robe/slippers - some lovely touches and a good selection of teas etc..complimentary bottles of water each day. Owners Inoka and Chris are so welcoming and... More

A fantastic little find just a few minutes walk from the centre of Kendal. A warm welcome with complementary mince pies and mulled wine! The owners are both reassuringly friendly and helpful. The rooms were wonderfully presented with all the mod cons you could require and room 4 has delightful views over kendal to the hills. Breakfast was quick and... More

My brother and I stayed in a twin ensuite room for one night. The host and his wife were fantastic and very helpful. The room was lovely and clean with everything you expect, lots of hot water, tea and coffee and nice and warm in the cold winter. Breakfast was great and there was plenty of choice. We really enjoyed... More

We spent one night on our way to Scotland here. Lovely welcome, comfortable quiet room with delicious breakfast. I would return for a longer visit to Kendal in the future. The guest house is central to the town so walking around and sight seeing would be easy.

We had a lovely three days at this B&B. Inoka comes from a hotelier background and it shows. Water, tea, coffee, chocolates, fruit all available. The bedroom was lovely, and the bed was very comfy. Breakfast was excellent. Location is good, an easy walk to the town centre, and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants to find a dinner... More
