My friends and I, including our Ladies, from various parts of England and Scotland, meet up in Kendal 5 or 6 times a year for charitable purposes in the masonic hall adjoining this hotel. Having experienced other hotels in the area we always choose to stay in The County. It is always spotlessly clean and the food plentiful, well cooked and tasty. On our last visit we were most impressed with the recent refurbishment of the bar/ballroom and dining area. Drinks prices are reasonable and the staff friendly and helpful. The night receptionist/barman works hard and is most efficient. Kevin, the manager is friendly and helpful and will always pass on advice about the local towns and the area in general. Nothing is too much trouble for him. He runs a tight ship in a relaxed manner and seems to have the friendship and respect of his staff. The waitresses always seem to be smiling and if you want more toast or tea, you only have to ask. Service if prompt and efficient. If you are going out walking, I can heartily recommend their packed lunches to give you the stamina to walk the nearby lakeland fells. Okay, some other hotels have swimming pools and Spas, if that is what you want, stay there and pay their prices, but if you want a genuine, warm welcome and the personal touch that is lacking in many hotels, then The County is for you. On our last stay, we forward booked dates in September and December to make sure that rooms are available for us.
