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

I've just got home from a two night stay at The County Hotel, I have to say that I don't really understand why this place has so many negative reviews. Yes it's a little old fashioned, but for me this was part of its appeal. If you want a modern hotel with no character, then find a Hilton Hotel somewhere... More

Stayed here whilst on a business trip. Arrived late and left early. The hotel was clean and the service was good although I've no idea how the night man managed it. He booked us in, served us at the bar, met us when we came back in after some drinks and then cooked our breakfast before booking us out... top... More

This hotel is a old and must have been great in its time. Central for the town,immediate parking is very limited. Our room on the second floor felt unclean, the furnishings worn out, soiled carpet, broken shower plus a badly stained mattress all gave the feeling of a unclean hotel. The staff were pleasant and the breakfast good in a... More

My partner booked us an extra night away, on our way to a birthday getaway in Keswick. On entering our room it was just disappointment each way we turned. £72 for one night without breakfast, is sheer extortion, having said that, due to the lack of cleanliness, I'm not sure we'd have eaten anyway. I'll be writing to the Hotel... More

I stayed for a weekend with friends, visiting Kendal and the Lakes. No problem parking and only a short walk to the riverside and town centre. Friendly and quick service and reception made a good impression. I was on third floor at the front of the hotel room 301. I had been warned about traffic noise but there was non,... More

We booked on line from car on way home as a treat. When we arrived there was major scaffolding all around the hotel, which took the edge off the visit. This was not mentioned on the site when booking? It was also on a very busy main road. In saying that is was easy walking to town centre.The room was... More

I stayed here with my partner as a weekend get away. Luckily we only stayed the one night. For £70 it's way overpriced. Should be more like £40. The hotel was dated and very unclean. I understand they are having it refurbished but there's no excuse for it being dirty. The breakfast was horrible and greasy, so left most of... More
