Nigel and Joanne made us very welcome, our room was lovely, prettily decorated and lovely and warm. We had a lovely breakfast with adequate choice. Kendal is a nice town but as we only stayed one night on our way to Scotland we can't comment further.

We only stayed one night but appreciated its position above the town centre and its convenience. If you want an unpretentious but comfortable stay in Kendal I can't imagine doing any better.

Right from our initial enquiry, the proprietors were extremely helpful. We received a warm welcome on arrival and the twin en-suite room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic and cooked to order - every request we made was catered for. The guest house is ideally situated for easy access to Kendal and the shops - if you don't mind the hill. We travelled by train and found it convenient as it was only a short taxi journey from Oxenholme station. All in all a great place to stay - friendly and excellent value for money.

Joanne and Nigel welcome you to this very convenient, comfortable B&B. They give good advice about what to see in the area and where to eat. We have been here several times and will return.

A friendly welcoming B&B with a lovely presented room offering you everything you would expect from a quality establishment.

I would the owners very helpful, the breakfasts were good and the bed was comfortable. The only thing I could question was that I thought the bathroom was a little dated.

It was clean, warm and comfortable. The breakfast was spot on. The staff were very pleasant, cheerful and helpful. There was no fuss, just overall a thoroughly pleasant stay. I would definately stay there again, should I be in the area.

Our stay at Hillside was enjoyable. The room was large enough to accommodate a seating area for reading and relaxing. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and hot with a nice selection of fruits, cereals and preserves too.
