“Excellent Hotel - Perfect Location - Excellent Staff.”
Reviewed August 5, 2009

This Hotel is a little gem of a place.

The location is about a 2 minute walk to the centre of kendal although it's on a hill, so the walk back is a bit slower than the one there.

The staff can't do enough for you.

The rooms are very tidy and well kept with a flat tv on the wall. The breakfasts are all home made and they are excellent with a full english on offer to cerials etc.

I will definatly be staying here again in the future and would have no hesistation in recommending it to anyone.

Stayed August 2009, traveled on business

Hillside is an excellent location for town with friendly and helpful hosts, we go to Kendal annually for the air show at Bowness and usually stay a little further out of town but will certainly return next year, the Hillside is 2minutes from the centre of town although a short walk up a very steep hill which was fine for us but may be a little more difficult for anyone with mobility problems. The rooms were very pleasant and ours had a lovely view to the rear, the breakfast was lovely and nothing was too much trouble.

Our hosts were very gracious and helpful whenever we needed quick answers to problems that developed regarding car rental and airport transportation. As well, great advice regarding local pubs, restaurants, and sights. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and the breakfasts superb. We'd stay with Nigel and Joanne at Hillside in a minute and we will recommend it to all of our friends.
