I stayed for two nights as I was up for a work event. It is up a steep hill - you can see why the road is called Beast Banks(!) but it's only a two minute walk from the main road in Kendal. I was welcomed by Wendy who showed me to room 1, the superior single. The room is large, with dual aspect windows. The room was spotless and the en-suite shower room equally clean, with Cumbrian themed shower gel/soaps etc, very soft and fluffy towels too! The bed was comfortable, everything has been thought of, such attention to detail. Wendy was happy to offer advice about where to eat locally and how to get to my work event. They have a huge rang of tourist information in the hallway. Breakfast both mornings was great and Richard serves the guests (and is very friendly, just like Wendy). Wide choice at breakfast: cereals, fruit, yogurts, cooked breakfast and locally sourced marmalade. They accommodated my request for vegetarian sausages and supplied soya milk, it was no trouble at all. It really is an 'easy' place to be, just so relaxed and everything is spot on. I'd recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a reliable, personal, central place to stay in Kendal. This is how a B&B should be!
