First stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed our stay then. The place has improved since - there is now a large covered car park. Our room looked to have been recently refurbished and was well appointed, clean and comfortable with a lovely view over the river. Dinners were very good and service in the restaurant was excellent - prompt and friendly without being pushy. The dining room's view over the river also offers an opportunity for some comfortable bird watching (I believe some visitors have even been lucky enough to see otters). Used the spa facilities on our third night and found them clean and relaxing. Generally, if you can take advantage of one of their special offers, it is a good place for a winter short break.
Only downside I could mention is one they can't help and that is finding one's way there through Kendal's incredible circuitous one-way system!
As an old building, it will almost inevitably pose some problems for those with mobility problems and this should be taken into consideration when booking.
