Probably the worst I've ever stayed in. Tired, grubby and uncomfortable. We had two family rooms, each with a double and a single bed. the bedding was clean but the beds were old and the mattresses were hard and noisy. I would imagine the floor would have been as comfortable. The colour scheme in my room was enough to give... More

The hotel was a little tired and needs a refresh. It is clean and the staff are friendly and willing to help. The rooms are ok as was the bed. The shower was great (unusual in my experience and so worth a positive note) The breakfast was good value if included in the room rate. Cheap and cheerful

My trip to Kendal was on a motorcycle tour around the Lake District in England. Kendal is located at the southern end of the lakes and is a great base. The County Hotel is a 2 star establishment well located to the town. All the shops, pubs and restaurants are about 15 mins walk away. Located directly opposite the train... More

I booked the County Hotel, as I was only staying the one night. It took a while to check in, and even though I requested an early in through another internet provider; they didn't have any record of it (but that was the internet providers fault). But I was lucky enough that my room was ready when I had checked... More

Overall the hotel is in need of a complete overall. Very clean, great food & staff but the rooms were in dire need of decorating. Wallpaper hanging off walls and a general feel of "stuck in the 60s". Great base for vising the Lakes. Pleasant atmosphere. They tried hard to please some very weary travellers.Even though on some occasions, due... More

Room on third floor, small lift or stairs. Decor dated but room spotlessly clean. Small team of staff, all friendly and helpful and very hardworking. Food was good and overall great value for money (National Holidays coach trip)

My wife and I went on a National Holidays break staying at the County Hotel. The food (dinner & breakfast) and service was excellent. All the staff we encountered were friendly and courteous and very willing to help. Situated close to the shopping areas and local attractions. And very convenient for the rail station. A very pleasant stay.

Stayed for one night Saturday the 15th July. Last minute booking only hotel available with 2rooms in Kenal. It is awful staff member on duty at reception on Saturday afternoon for check in, was arrogant and had a terrible attitude. Will never return. I wouldn't care it isn't that cheap when you add breakfast and cost of parking. Rooms dirty... More
