“First experience”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

First experience of a Premier Inn and must say if this one is anything to go by it probably wouldn't be our last. The reception was friendly and professional, we prepaid for the room and also for full English breakfast, which was £8.95 (Continental was also offered for £6.95, I think). Our room on the 2nd Floor in the newer part of the building, was large, extremely clean and fresh, and well equipped, although there were only 2 sachets of coffee, however a visit to reception rectified that.

Breakfast was served in the Table Table restaurant adjoining the Inn, and although the hotel was busy, the service was good and food was kept fully stocked. Can recommend the porridge and the poached eggs.

We were slightly anxious about the car parking after reading the reviews, and also receiving an email from the PI regarding the car park situation, however our timing must have been perfect as a space was available when we needed it. It is £5 for 24 hours.

Great hotel and highly recommended - Great staff too! Could not fault this place and the manager (I think she was) was super friendly and a great help. Would definitely recommend saying at this hotel!

If looking for somewhere to stay in Kendal for a short break, why not try the Premier Inn Central.
Strategically positioned a minutes walk from the high street, this is an ideal base to explore the town.
Friendly staff and exceptional room facilities for the price paid make all PIs an ideal base for a night or two's stay.
Only downside with this Inn was the limited parking facility, £5 for 24 hours, but the staff offer advice on next nearest parking spot if full.
Other than that, our guaranteed night's sleep was fulfilled.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Room 118, although looking over a side street, was very comfortable, and extremely clean.

Premier inn never let you down and at £29 for a night away is fabulous value. The staff are polite and friendly. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast are cooked to order,

Kendal central is situated in a good location in a busy town. Parking wasn't a problem but could be at weekends.

Check out Weatherspoons The Miles Thompson pub and Sawadee Thai restaurant reviews.

Room Tip: All the same high standard but don't ask for a pleasant view you are in a town centre

A lovely Premier Inn, i would highly recommend staying here. Very friendly staff and excellent location.
Park early if possible. No tips needed really, its just a very good Premier inn
Ten minutes drive from the centre of the lakes and right in the centre of market town Kendal.

This hotel appeared ideally situated for us to visit friends near Kendal. The hotel itself has recently been greatly extended and renovated as new, while the adjacent Wakefield Arms is what we have come to expect at Premier Inn. The hotel is close to the main street.
Parking at the hotel however, is very limited and has a charge of £5/day, making it necessary for any overflow to park in local streets or town car parks. It is quickly filled and if you return after a night out there will be no spaces.
In the redesign of the hotel the 8 disabled rooms are now some distance from reception, some on the first floor, though there is a good lift. As I can only walk about 10yds, the distance from reception meant I had to use a disabled scooter to reach the room or go to the restaurant. This room location seemed unusual as in most P. Inns disabled rooms are easily accessible. Some of the disabled rooms have a wet floor shower.

Room Tip: As it is in a quiet location most rooms would be quiet but upper rooms less car park noise.
