I have just returned from a fabulous stay at Balcony House in Kendal with my partner. Mandy and Brian were very welcoming and helpful and the room was lovely. The house was decorated very well and the room was large, but cosy, with everything we needed and everything was exceptionally clean. It's in a great location, with parking right outside and walking distance from the shops, restaurants and plenty of local activities.

The breakfast was delicious and there was a good selection of teas and coffees in the room. Great value for money and will definitely return here again on our next trip to Kendal.

I recently stopped at the Balcony House for one night. The welcome I received was very warm and the room was lovely. Generous breakfast which meant I was crawling out the door and into the meeting I had to attned. Would stay here again!

I had such a lovely time! Mandy and Brian were so welcoming and accommodating, I couldn't have asked for more. It's just a short to the train station to go in to Windermere or other points in the Lake District, and it's just ever so slightly further to go in to town - but it's a lovely walk. All my questions about what to do and see were answered iwth such great information, it really made all the difference for my trip. The next time I'm up in the Lake District, I will definitely be staying at Balcony House.

We stayed at Balcony House the week of the royal wedding back in April - making the most of the two long weekends and very short week. Mandy and Brian couldn't have been more welcoming, and were always happy to offer recommendations on where to eat or drink, walks, sights and so forth. I have to say, it was just as well we took our walking gear, as the breakfast was both hearty and delicious every morning, meaning we needed a little calorie burning afterwards (and could only manage a light lunch each day). Our room was quite compact, but perfectly adequate for us. We were very happy with the location, but anyone looking to book should be aware that it is about a 10-15 minute walk into the centre of town. We found that the gentle stroll back helped us digest the fantastic food and drink we had enjoyed in town!

We stayed at Balcony House for a long Bonfire weekend (4th-6th November) and had a wonderful time. Both Brian and Mandy can't do enough to make sure you enjoy your stay. Its only a ten minute walk into Kendal town centre and its an enjoyable walk. We watched the fireworks from the bridge which was a great display. We stayed in Room 2 with the plush 4 poster bed and devine front facing balcony, room has a TV/DVD combo. Reeeally cosy and gorgeous room. The house was beautifully decorated throughout to the highest standard. Bedroom robes and bathroom towels were great. Excellent room tea/coffee making facilities with Cadburys Chocolate sachets and little chocolates. Mandy's breakfasts are to die for! We can also recommend the boat rides at lake Windermere (£7 each for the island hoping boat) and lots of lovely little coffee shops in Kendal. 5 star bed and breakfast!
