After staying only 1 night we found it to be warm and friendly. The rooms were of a high standard and the personel touches in the en suite was more than expected. The breakfast was one of the best we have tasted. We are recomending this hotel to all our friends and family and definately would stop here again. Well done to the owners they tick all the boxes .

Stopped at balcony in November, beautiful tastefully decorated throughout. Owners go above call of duty to deliver genuine warmth' hospitality and attention to detail.
Breakfast nicer than had in several top hotels!
Will recommend, without faults.

We have just had 1 night at the balcony with friends and can confirm that the hotel and owners provide fantastic value for money and a very welcomming environment.The room was everything and more than we needed and the breakfast was tasty,well presented and very filling!The Spa facilities at the nearby hotel were very good and very easy to access. Would not hesitate to use in the future.

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights whilst he was on a nearby training course, the owners are the some of the nicest people you could wish to meet, very friendly and they go out of their way to make your stay as pleasurable as possible, the guest house in general and the rooms are spotlessly clean, well kept and furnished to a high standard, the bed was very comfy and we had a great nights sleep, loved the selection of herbal teas, and the chocolates and biscuits in the room are a very nice touch ;-) the breakfast was delicious and plentiful, an added bonus is you get a pass to use the health club up the road with a lovely swimming pool and gym. All in all I don't think you could find a better place to stay in Kendal.

Thankyou for making us so welcome and thanks for driving us to the restaurant.
Lovely place, super comfy beds. Nice to have a selection of teas etc in the room. Everything that you might want is provided, right down to that bit of chocolate you crave at bedtime and the make-up removal wipes that you always forget to pack.
Great breakfast. Hope to see you both soon

Had a lovely over night stay, 11/11/12. Bedrooms beautiful, decor very homely. All toiletries thought of in large en-suite. Teas and coffee facilities with personal touches, Fantastic full English breakfast, with lots of alternative options. Very friendly and helpful , recommenced lots of restaurants in Kendal. Swimming and Spa facilities at Riverside Hotel was complimentary and was worth the effort to go.

Room Tip: Had a choice on arrival, difficult to choose which one as all lovley

We stayed at Balcony House for two night in November. It is a beautifully restored victorian house. Our room was fabulous, in fact the bed was so comfortable I was compelled to pull back the bedding and find out the make of the pillows and mattress cover- which I will be buying for my own house as they were so comfortable!!

We had two great nights sleep, the room was peaceful and had all you needed for a cosy night in. A great bed, TV (with DVD player- they provide DVDs) and hot drink making facilities ( which included fresh coffee, hot chocoate and teas & coffee). I mustn't forget the roses chocolates and kit kats which were relplaced daily- what a lovely thought.

The ensuite was great with a toilet and lovely shower. They had thought of everything the toiletries included shampoo, handwash, body lotion, face wipes, Dove soap, ladies sanitary products, body spray and a range of sewing kits. So practical !! Better still, two lovely dressing gowns to relax in!!

Which brings us to breakfast!! What can I say except my husband said it is the best he has ever had away from home!! (he had to say that). A fantastic choice of cereals was followed by the most impressive cooked breakfast which included lovely lancashire black pudding, local sausages, thick bacon, eggs from their own hens and thick toast and butter. The coffee was fresh and delicious!!

Brian and Mandy are amazing hosts- even dropping us into town on Saturday night and advising us on good walks and places to go.

This place is an absolute gem-Mandy and Brian should be proud of what they have achieved here.
