Really friendly hosts with lots of good advice and free city centre map for those unfamiliar with Kendal. Comfortable room with the most exotic selection of locally produced bath unguents I've ever come across, and a great selection of room teas, coffee and even chocolates. A great choice for breakfast as well. I wished everywhere I stayed was as homely... More

Better than a hotel on many levels. The service levels, standard of cleanliness and friendliness - they couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. They even made a late breakfast to fit in with my schedule. Would definitely recommend a stay here - they know what they're doing here.

Our room had 2 things I am always keen to be provided with - thick curtains and a decent sized bath. When we said we were driving all the way to Inverness Inoka provided us with a huge packed lunch which was... More

Inoka and Chris are very attentive hosts. Giving advice, maps for recommended places to see, walks to take and restaurants to visit. We had to get up early and Inoka rose early also and provided a lovely breakfast box. The rooms are lovely and provide all home comforts.

We stayed at this guest house in 2012 & thought it was a really nice place. Comfortable, warm & inviting. Great breakfast & a great pub (Oddfellows Arms) across the road. So how do you improve on that? Well for a start both Inoka & Chris were there to greet us. (last time the owner was on holiday). Chris carried... More

Stayed for one night during a cycle tour. The room was small but very comfortable. It is conveniently situated about a 2 minute walk from Kendal centre. The owners are great hosts and put a lot of effort into making it an enjoyable stay for their guests. As a result, things like the bedroom toiletries and drinks along with the... More
