“perfect break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We stayed for two nights in January 2014. There was a problem with the first room we were given. There was an odd smell. The staff gave us a new room. Both rooms were well appointed and comfortable. We ate the first night in the o. Site pub. Food and atmosphere were first class on the second night we had dinner in the restaurant. Again splendid food and excellent service. Breakfast in the restaurant was also of a high standard. Facilities at the hotel were very good. A special mention for the excellent staff who made us feel very welcome.

‘Perfect Break’ - what a fantastic title to mark our 750th ‘Excellent/Very Good’ Trip Advisor review!

We are very fortunate to have such a friendly hard working team here at Castle Green which is mentioned in the vast majority of reviews we receive.

On the outskirts of Kendal, the hotel is set in well-kept grounds with magnificent views. The room was lovely, the view terrific and staff were friendly and went out of their way to make you feel at home. (Our room wasn't quite ready due to computer failure, so we were offered complimentary tea while we waited.) Pool and leisure facilities also good. The breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were excellent. Also, try the bar for a less formal setting with hearty-sized meal portions. The only slight down-side was intrusive noise from the running machines in the gym beneath our room. Excellent, though, and hope to return soon.

We stayed two nights were made very welcome it didn't feel like a big hotel. We ate in the main restaurant and the food and service was excellent.

The spar was an added bonus and it was great to be able to relax in the steam room before dinner. It would have been nice to have a jacuzzi as well but that was the only criticism

Highly recommended

An excellent well equipped hotel in wonderful surroundings. Quite close to Kendal but hilly so would most probably need a car to go to Kendal. Good food, first class service.There is a good fitness centre and ample car parking facilities.

Thank you for your review

It takes about 20 minutes to walk down into Kendal from the hotel. I normally recommend getting a taxi back as it’s a bit of a trek back up to our elevated position on the hillside. However, the views are to die for!

We booked at the hotel only about a week before arriving. They were full and so therefore we booked the Monday night and Wednesday night (family room) and they advised if a cancellation came in would get in touch. We booked in on the Monday and still no availability for the Tuesday. Had a lovely wander about Kendal on the Monday and then came back for an amazing swim and steam room, gym looked good too. Had a lovely meal in Alexander's at night, nothing was any bother to staff and hotel was 1st class. Checked out on Tuesday morning as still no availability after an awesome cooked breakfast. Went to Windermere and Bowness and tried to book into other hotels, (revommended by Castle Green) but all full also due to half term, and much more expensive, even if they had availability. We just kept on thinking I wish we could have had all three nights at Castle Green, when my mobile rang and it was Laura from reception saying they had juggled rooms and guests around and had managed to make a family room for us. This was way above the call of duty, it was brilliant and just made our holiday. Checked back in and stayed in one of the executive rooms, what a view. Went swimming twice a day, eat in Alexander's every night and couldn't recommend the staff and hotel high enough. If you are considering going, please do, you won't be disappointed.

What a fantastic example of exceptional customer service, well done Laura!

We do get very busy, particularly during school holidays so booking further in advance would be recommended for next time! Remember to book directly to get the best rates.

Me and my fiancée have stayed at castle green twice, first time was December 2012 when I (very nervously) "popped the question" and the second time was for our first anniversary as an engaged couple. Both times have been amazing, all of the staff are a real credit to the establishment.
The rooms are simply superb, and the food it second to none.
We have just booked another 2 nights here in June and are so exited about coming back.
A well earned 5 stars for the castle green team!!

It is lovely to see that the Castle Green holds such lovely memories for you both. If you have yet to decide on a wedding venue we could arrange an appointment to meet one of our wedding coordinators while you are with us in June?! ;-)

When my friends booked this i was not thinking that it was going to be the best part of our trip. Was surprised that Kendal seemed like a ghost town only load so police and bouncers outside all pubs in town so not the best of greetings on a friday evening. The hotel was our saving grace - seemed to be the centre of entertainment as the bars were full - reasonably priced and lively. Rooms great and then breakfast next morning second to none. If the staff of the hotel in which we stayed in Windermere were to be taken here they would learn how to make people happy with a great smile and great service and food. Will always head to this hotel if I could great value for money.
