Lovely stay. Room was much bigger than most b&bs, especially the bathroom. Nice toiletries provided (same as the 5 star hotel we stayed in the next night!). Great breakfast. Good communication before check in and all contact free and covid safe.

Stayed for 2 nights and I must say it was the best 2 nights stay we have ever had anywhere. Even in these testing times Chris & Inoka did everything they could to make sure guests enjoyed their stay. If you stay here and forget to pack some toiletries rest assured they have got it covered, there is everything you would ever need. The room was spacious and very clean, the beds where very comfortable. Fresh towels etc where readily available if required. One of the main things I look for on reviews is how the breakfast is rated. The Sonata does not disappoint on this score, delicious full English on both mornings to set you up for the day. An excellent couple of days in Kendal trying to get some normality into our lives. And it’s because of people like Chris & Inoka not having a break it allows other people to have a break. For that they deserve all the credit they get, and we hope to return soon, hopefully in better times than we are in now. Many thanks John & Lin

Delightful experience - superb, cosy rooms and delicious fried breakfast. I also loved the bath and complimentary lemongrass bath salts! I slept perfectly. Would highly recommend and visit again. The location is ideal too.

Right from booking to leaving I felt a priority to the owners. I was very impressed with the room. It was very pleasing to find everything from tea/coffee to toiletries/earplugs already supplied ! Beautiful decor, very comfy beds. The breakfast was brilliant, made to order. Can’t Thankyou enough . You certainly exceeded any expectations. I will most definitely use this fabulous B&B again.

One of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept in! Everything about Sonata speaks to the care Chris and Inoka take to ensure a great stay. All the facilities are of the highest quality and the breakfast rightly deserves the Visit England Breakfast Award. Most importantly, their attention to Covid-19 hygiene requirements is exemplary and guests can feel very safe in this environment. Well done, this is our first choice for accommodation in Kendal.
