“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Lovely hotel very nice room excelllent gym facilities. The Staff are all very friendly and the lady in charge of breakfast who I think was called Leona , was extremely welcoming. All in all I would stay again. Restaurant very pricey but the Pub next door was reasonably priced.

Stayed for a night on visiting the Lake District. Located around 10 minutes from Kendal and 25 mins from Windermere. A standard Best Western hotel... nothing special really. Staff are nice and friendly, however, rooms are a bit on the small side. Plenty of car park spaces available, but the down side is that most parking spaces are down the hill from the reception. Could be a struggle for those with lots of luggage (tip: unload luggages at reception, check in, then park car down hill)

Many thanks for your review.

We are very proud to currently be ranked 11th out of 280 Best Western hotels in the UK. This ranking is based upon the reviews of guests who have actually stayed with us so is a really good reflection of how we compare with the other hotels in the brand.

We are set on a hillside in grounds of 12 acres which unfortunately means that our car parking is split over three levels with the spaces nearest to reception being highly sort after. On the plus side this does mean we have some fantastic views over Kendal Castle and the Lakeland fells in the distance.

We had a 2 night stay. What a super hotel in lovely grounds. The staff were fantastic and are a credit to the hotel. We also ate in the pub in the grounds which was also great. Super breakfast and a lovely lady in charge of the breakfast operation. Our only moan is that it' s not really in Kendal but the walk kept us fit!!!

We got married here on the 21st June 2013 and from the moment we checked in untill we checked out we couldnt of asked for more. All of the staff where genuinely friendly and went out of their way to do anything they could for you. If you are looking to get married or just want a night away I wouldn't hesitate in recomending this hotel I can't fault anything and all of our guests stated the same. The food in both the restaurant and Alexander s bar was out of this world and the attention to detail they put in setting up the function room for the wedding was above and beyond. And the bedrooms where spotless modern and comfatable. On the morning of the wedding I'd broken one of my nails and needed my eyelashes sorting so I popped down to the spa and even though they where booked up the girls went out of there way to fit me in and get me sorted. I don't want to pick anyone particular out as all the staff worked very hard but I would like to say that Amanda who I made the booking with and christine the banqueting manager got everything spot on and really made our dream day come true. A very big thank you to you all, I can't wait to come and stay again.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be done to a very high standard. The honeymoon sweet was stunning.

Just had a weekend away at one of our favourite hotels, Best Western Plus Castle Green.
We initially booked the Sunday Spice Club then decided to make it a longer break and add Saturday night. We usually stay over on Sundays 2 or 3 times a year, been visiting now since 2004 and each year standards have improved. The staff and Management have worked hard to achieve their 4 star rating which is well deserved. Hotel clean and well run, lovely location at the gateway to the Lakes, food is excellent and breakfast fit for a king!
We always have a most enjoyable stay.
Well done to all at Castle Green, we intend to visit for many more years to come.

Room Tip: We always choose a side room, ok it overlooks the Leisure car park but generally quite there and coo...
