“OK but could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

We stayed for one night and found everything about the place underwhelming. Staff were not over friendly, very businesslike but lacked friendliness, unbelievably no draught ale on the bar too. Apparently the cost of installing a new line is too expensive! How much did Whitbread make last year!
This is our third visit to this place but each time it gets a little worse.

An excellent hotel, superb facilities and outstanding levels of service. My wife, daughter and I chose the Premier Inn Kendal Central because it was ideally located and we were confident that the service and facilities were very good.It out out as we expected.

First experience of a Premier Inn and must say if this one is anything to go by it probably wouldn't be our last. The reception was friendly and professional, we prepaid for the room and also for full English breakfast, which was £8.95 (Continental was also offered for £6.95, I think). Our room on the 2nd Floor in the newer part of the building, was large, extremely clean and fresh, and well equipped, although there were only 2 sachets of coffee, however a visit to reception rectified that.

Breakfast was served in the Table Table restaurant adjoining the Inn, and although the hotel was busy, the service was good and food was kept fully stocked. Can recommend the porridge and the poached eggs.

We were slightly anxious about the car parking after reading the reviews, and also receiving an email from the PI regarding the car park situation, however our timing must have been perfect as a space was available when we needed it. It is £5 for 24 hours.

Great hotel and highly recommended - Great staff too! Could not fault this place and the manager (I think she was) was super friendly and a great help. Would definitely recommend saying at this hotel!

If looking for somewhere to stay in Kendal for a short break, why not try the Premier Inn Central.
Strategically positioned a minutes walk from the high street, this is an ideal base to explore the town.
Friendly staff and exceptional room facilities for the price paid make all PIs an ideal base for a night or two's stay.
Only downside with this Inn was the limited parking facility, £5 for 24 hours, but the staff offer advice on next nearest parking spot if full.
Other than that, our guaranteed night's sleep was fulfilled.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Room 118, although looking over a side street, was very comfortable, and extremely clean.

Premier inn never let you down and at £29 for a night away is fabulous value. The staff are polite and friendly. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast are cooked to order,

Kendal central is situated in a good location in a busy town. Parking wasn't a problem but could be at weekends.

Check out Weatherspoons The Miles Thompson pub and Sawadee Thai restaurant reviews.

Room Tip: All the same high standard but don't ask for a pleasant view you are in a town centre
