“Great value, Great service, Beautiful room - A hidden gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2011

Ideally located for our walking weekend. Only two minutes walk from mainline Oxenholme station in pleasant quiet surroundings. Service was very friendly. Tracy advised us on the best local walks. Organized a taxi for an evening in Kendal and recommended a number of restaurants.
We liked the fact that breakfast was cooked to order - eggs just how I like them, plus a good selection of fruit and cereal. All very tasty.
The room was a good size, nicely decorated and presented, with lots of extras, plus a jacuzzi bath. Also, speedy WI-FI was available free of charge.
Admittedly I am one for reading trip advisor, rather than making entries, but this little gem is one not to be missed. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to my friends.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2010

Convenient B & B very close to Oxenholme station. Nice single room for £45 on Friday in mid December 2010. Clean, warm with good en suite facilities. Quiet.

Hotel WiFi broadband not routinely made available to guests.

Breakfast only served 8:30 - 9:00. Paid on arrival and asked for early breakfast. Told it would be left out but that I would have to make tea in my room and bring down. At 7:35 a table was laid and part of the dining room was lit. Choice of cereals, sliced bread, toaster, mini packs of butter, Flora, jam, honey and marmalade. The muesli, bread, orange and apple juice were all very ordinary.

Didn't see anyone until I was walking out at 8:10am. As it was snowing I would have liked to ask someone to check train delays on-line. I am sure they would have obliged if I had rung the bell, but that's not the same level of hospitality as being asked whether you need anything.
