We stopped in the barn yesterday and were very impressed by the modern rooms, the parking in the private carpark and the pub was welcoming and so were the owners. Donna had me checked in in under five minutes and we appreciated the before stay phone call. Breakfast was lovely and DH managed to explain about his gluten free needs... More

We stayed here for one night only, and thought it was brilliant. The welcome we received on arrival is what every hotel should offer as we were made to feel instantly at home. We had a very nice room in the annex, which had the usual tea and coffee facilities and a good TV, although if you are a little... More

We visited the pub today having seen a banner proclaiming that the Kings Arms was Pub of the Year 2016. Well.... The welcome was warm, the service attentive and the food to DIE for. We had pate and fish with chips and mushy peas. The chips were golden, fluffy and full of flavour.... The fish was huge with light tasty... More

We stayed at the Kings Arms overnight and paid £70 for a lovely room and an excellent breakfast. The barn conversion which houses several rooms has been very tastefully done and is easily up to London hotel standards. We were struck by the friendly, traditional pub atmosphere when we arrived and had no hesitation in booking our evening meal. The... More

Visited for two nights on a living social voucher. Lovely old pub in a great area for visiting the Lake District and Morecambe Bay. We were made most welcome, the accommodation in the barn was fabulous - all new and modern. Great big bed and beautiful bathroom. The breakfasts were lovely and we ate at the hotel both nights. Again... More

Staying at the nearby Travelodge this is the nearest place to eat. A friendly welcome from the landlord and very friendly staff and consequently the pub has a warm and welcoming feeling. The food is good and reasonably priced and a good selection of real ale in excellent condition. Will go again next time I am in area.

Old building with loads of character. The girl behind the bar who was also the waitress was very friendly and welcoming. The meal was really really good at a very reasonable price. Will definitely go back again.

We stayed for one night whilst attending a friends party and found Neil and his staff to be very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in one of the Barn Rooms which was comfortable and beautifully decorated and furnished with a great size bathroom. Breakfast was also plentiful and very nice. We would not hesitate in recommending a stay here whether... More

We stayed one night at The Kings Arms to break the journey from Scotland to Buckinghamshire because it is perfectly located, just off the M6 but in a pretty little village, and the owner/staff were all lovely. We had a good day out in the local area - went over to Kirby Lonsdale at their suggestion and found it very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kings Arms is situated in the quaint Cumbrian village of Burton-in-Kendal, situated near to the outstanding natural beauty of the Lake District National Park, Yorkshire Dales and the historic city of Lancaster with easy access to the M6 motorway. Previously an old coaching inn as early as 1763, the Kings Arms is a small family run traditional tavern, offering a warm and friendly service with excellent cuisine served in our recently extended restaurant. Dinner in our candle lit dining room is an integral part of the Kings Arms experience; we believe that you, the guest, deserve food of the highest standard, prepared with the finest local ingredients and expertise. We boast 6 well-appointed, en-suite rooms, family room and doubles all furnished in a traditional style with natural warmth and welcoming charm. Here at The Kings Arms, we offer a unique opportunity to enjoy hospitality and service of the highest standard, whilst experiencing the wonders of picturesque Cumbria - the perfect setting for any break. Burton in Kendal is a short distance from The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and The Trough of Bowland. The hotel is a perfect base for walkers and cyclists as it is on the Lancashire Cycle way and is surrounded by bay coastal, fell and woodland walks in areas of outstanding natural beauty. Locally their are plenty of activities, such as a number of local fisheries for the angler, the Capernwray Dive Centre, Equestrian and outdoor pursuit centres for those wanting an active break and for those wanting the more leisurely break we are perfectly sited to explore the area and then come back to relax in a traditional coaching inn based in a pretty Cumbrian Village. For those passing through and needing a short stopover the Kings Arms is 5 minutes off the the M6 at Junction 35 or 36 and is an ideal stop over venue for those wishing to break long journeys up to Scotland or down South. ... more   less
