We stayed at Sonata guesthouse on August bank holiday , and what a charming , homely welcoming stay we had. Inoka met us on arrival and was a perfect host without being over the top. The rooms were lovely and comfortable and the attention to detail were noticeable providing toothbrushes ear plugs and quality soap and hair products. The breakfast... More

We stayed at the Sonata for 2 nights in July. It's a great location with just a few minute walk onto the Main Street in Kendal. The owners were very friendly and we all felt very well looked after. Breakfast is beautiful and the beds are extremely comfortable. We left feeling very relaxed and pampered.

We stayed with Inoka and Chris at Sonata on the night of 14 Aug. Their B & B is modelled on a 5 star hotel where Inoka honed her skills. This showed in the pampering attention to detail, the quality of cooking at breakfast and the very warm welcome from both Inoka & Chris. Very highly recommended.

My husband and I just stayed at the Sonata guest house. Inoka and Chris were, as suggested by all, truly genuine and warm hosts. More than that, however, they have extremely high standards and know how to be welcoming but unobtrusive. Breakfast is as good as everyone says and the location in the heart of Kendal is superb.

The Sonata is a warm, friendly guest house, and Chris and Inoka can both be very proud of their work and what they have to offer. We had a brief one night stay, the three of us in a family room and it has to be said they had thought of everything. If there was a chance you would need... More

Thank you for this review. Yes please do come again, perhaps for a longer stay. So happy Kieran loved it here, such a polite boy – we hope he continues to come to the Lakes as he gets older. It’s a lovely place for outdoor activities. It’s also great when guests value the little touches that make a stay nicer... More

Myself and two friends booked in on 30th of July 2014 on the way back from Scotland to Wales after a golf trip. The owners Inoka and Chris were a delight and nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole house was immaculate and the room and bathroom the same being recently refurbished. Breakfast was superb freshly cooked and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Yes please do come again, perhaps for a longer stay, perhaps as part of a Lakes golfing tour.
