I booked the Courtyard Hotel for a two night visit as it was reasonably priced and had generally decent reviews. On the plus side the front of house staff are very good (especially Anne who is a credit to the hotel), the breakfast was decent and it is a short drive to get into the Lake District. In contrast, the... More

When done Angie Ann... More

Partner and I just returned from an Easybreaks long weekend here, meeting up with our good friends Alec and Wendy from Leicestershire. LOCATION : on A6 opposite railway station, short walk into town, no private parking so that can be a bit of a bind. HOTEL : an old hotel, tired and a bit threadbare in places, but homely and...

I arrived with my partner about 7pm after a long journey from Aberdeen so we really needed a drink and a goodnights sleep. We got checked in by a lovely receptionist (Ann) I think and was directed to our room on the 1st floor. To our disappointment the room hadn't been cleaned at all....somebody had been in but just made... More

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
