Hotel itself is located in a great place well within walking distance of Kendal. Parking is good and staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a family room on the ground floor (003) which has great space and is modern and clean.
We used the leisure facilities whilst there which are dated and the pool is much smaller than the pictures suggest. The ladies changing facilities are small and fire damaged and were very busy at the time. I didn't think they were very clean at all.
The pool itself was warm, but there were swimming lessons going on at the time and you felt you couldn't swim at that end (not a big pool anyway) The Jacuzzi was very hot and the chlorine made your eyes water !
The only thing that spoilt our stay was the noise in the evenings / night. The lift was very loud and doors banged constantly so not a relaxing stay at all. When we did sleep, we were woken again within minutes with someone else opening and slamming their door.
We went as a family with an 8 year old and he was so tired and grumpy the following day which spoilt the Sunday. Breakfast was lovely and plentiful.
I would not stay here again as I paid £118 to be kept awake all night but I understand this is not the hotel itself, but the guests. Maybe slow shutting doors on rooms should be considered.
