What a gem of a place - spotlessly clean. Andy and Tracey are extremely welcoming and it's all the little extras that make this place a delight - freshly baked cakes every day for one. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are decorated to a very high standard. Perfect location - only a 10 minute walk into Windermere where... More

Let's start at the beginning, Andy & Tracy are the best hosts, welcoming 2 drenched visitors with a massively warm welcome, Andy helped us in with our luggage & showed us to our rooms, which were immaculate and then brought us coffee & cake whilst we began to dry out. The standard of cleanliness and decor was excellent & the... More

We stayed in a restful and very clean room. The owners have invested in high quality bathrooms, and the bed had one of the best mattresses for comfort and support I have ever slept in. Tracey and Andy's attention to detail and making sure we were comfortable and well fed helped to make our 4 day visit to the Central... More

Yours weighs 47 kilos and was rather costly but we have invested in the same mattress in both of our king rooms. Bizarrely however one of our most... More

A lovely room with high standard of decor and the most comfortable bed ever! Tracey and Andy were wonderful hosts, offering lifts to and from the station and Tracey baked cakes and biscuits every day for the guests. Highly recommended for exploring the Lake District.

The best compliment I can pay about our stay at the Kenilworth Guest House is that the owners Andy and Tracey treated me and my partner as friends rather than guests.
