Castle Green Hotel in Kendal, BW Premier Collection
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Kendal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We held our Bridge Club weekend here and due to the efforts of all the staff it was a wonderful success.

The event managers made the organisation of our trip very easy, the reception staff were very efficient, dining room staff excellent and the chef produced delightful meals.

All fifty of us had delightful rooms with very smart bathrooms, the corridors all appeared to be newly carpeted and painted. We played bridge in the Oak Room which had been newly decorated and was fantastic.

Top marks Castle Green - we will be back!

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms were quieter and the ones at the front had lovely views

Our stay at Castle Green started with friendly reception staff and continued in this theme throughout our stay. The rooms were very clean and functional and the balcony gave extensive views over Kendal and the eastern edge of the Lake District. Food throughout the stay was first class and although we did not have time to sample the Spa the atmosphere and facilities were obviously very popular. The location on the edge of the town provided peace and quiet with easy access to both the Lake District and the M6.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor at the front of the hotel have the best view.

Many thanks for your review.

We are an ideal base for exploring the Lakes or a spot of Christmas shopping in and around Kendal whether it be for a couple of days or a week! So why not get yourself to the hotel website and book yourself a festive short break here at Castle Green!

We stayed here for our anniversary in November 2012. We chose to stay here because we actually stayed here the night of our wedding before jetting off to Florida. What an amazing stay. We booked on the internet direct for £93 with breakfast included. We asked if we could have a bottle of Rose on our arrival as it was a special visit.
To our surprise, we were given a complimentary upgrade to a very, very nice suite. 4 poster, massive bathroom the whole shazzam. And, 10 minutes after arrival, the wine turned up!
The room was fantastic, the bathroom had underfloor heating, bathrobes on the bed, complimentary water and a full tea and coffee service with cafetiere and a proper solid kettle!
Now, some of my followers will know that I travel and stay in lots of hotels, plastic kettles scare me!
The staff were very friendly, who doesn't like to be called "sir" every now and then :) Our food was fantastic too, we had our dinner in the pub next door called Alexanders (separate review). Although we only stayed for the one night, I have to say, I think I will opt to stay in a BW again rather than my Premier Inns!

Good Evening ‘Sir’ ;-)

What a memorable anniversary, it sounds like you have your work cut out to raise the bar for next year!!

It is inevitable that from time to time we get compared to a Premier Inn. There is no way we can compete on price but if you are looking for a bit of luxury, excellent facilities and service, then get yourself to the Castle Green!!

We usually start with our winter promotions during November so its well worth checking out our hotel website for special rates over the next few months.

We planned a long weekend with friends of our from Aberdeen so planned to meet half way as we live in Wiltshire. The hotel we chose was the Castle Green Hotel in Kendal, and it could not have been a better choice. Our room was the best ever, very clean and comfortable and the food in both the restaurant and the adjoining pub was excellent. We were also very impressed with the friendliness of all the staff. Would highly recommend.

Many thanks for your kind words. Being only a few miles from the M6 we are an ideal stop off when travelling north or south or alternatively as central meeting place.

Whatever the reason for your stay you will be sure to get a very warm Castle Green welcome!!

Our return stay at Castle Green exceeded all our [already very high!] expectations. Our friendly welcome at reception made for a good start, and was followed by a superb treatment in the Spa faciliies - full body massage is highly recommended. The main restaurant offered an excellent meal where the quality of food is outstanding value for the price. Our Executive Room ensured a luxurious stay, and the price difference beween a Sandard and Executive Room makes the extra cost exceedingly well worth while. The staff are outstanding in the friendly, personable service they extend - particularly to be commended are the Hotel Manager and restaurant Head Waiter who excel themselves in their happy, "nothing is too much trouble" care of hotel guests..We'll be staying again and would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Our Executive Room had a huge bay window overlooking the garden with plush purple sofa to enjoy the...

A very comfortable hotel in the Lake District of London sitting on 14 acres of land with great views. The hotel is modern and comfortable with spacious rooms and friendly staff. You can relax in the cozy pub or walk around the acreage.

In recent years we have developed our very own woodland walk within the hotel grounds. For those feeling brave we also have 'Vertical Air' which as the name suggests means getting up into the trees!! Check out the hotel website to find out more!!

Had a great stay here. a wonderful room overlooking the garden, well worth the upgrade, delightful treatments in the spa and a lovely bar area serving really good sandwiches and snacks. The team couldn't do enough for you and were very friendly, easy to park and close to the lovely town of Kendal with lots to see and do - or just relax in the hotel and re-charge your batteries.
Service in the restaurant was excellent and it is well appointed, would prefer personally a simpler menu but this is available in the pub or the lounge.

Room Tip: Garden Facing rooms are lovely and would recommend the executive rooms, they are very comfortable
