We wanted a reasonably priced stopover, with comfortable rooms and we got that and more. Very welcoming staff with good quality pub grub - it may not be fancy food but it is well prepared and there is plenty of it. Thoroughly recommend it and will be booking again if we get up to the lakes again soon. A great... More

We hadn't being for a while and were on our way to the north Pennines and decided a 10 mile detour for lunch was worth it based on previous experiences. Well we weren't disappointed. Met by Jemima ( bright and bouncy young lady from Down Under, ) , drinks dispensed, food ordered... We ordered fish and chips, a simple meal,... More

I stayed in early August and having spent all day outside, very unprepared, I arrived red as a beetroot with sunburn. The lady owner very kindly took pity on me and brought me some aftersun at breakfast the next morning! That kind of service is what makes the difference. Food was lovely and room was clean and comfortable plus dog... More

Delightful old hotel and beautiful fresh locally sourced food and varied and ever changing specials with an excellent range of northern cask ales - well worth visiting whether it be for business or pleasure.

We have driven past so many times to and from work and decided in our holiday break to try it out. We ate at 5 ish. It was very quiet and we were the only diners at one point but they still treated us professionally. Excellent service to the table too. This was the BEST ever steak and kidney pudding... More

A short distance from the M6 North services at Burton we ate here, two adults and two children. For a Monday the place was busy but we were attended to quickly and food came promptly with a smile. Food was of a great quality with loads of choice from a specials board too. Seafood Paella was heavenly.

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

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
