We stayed here for 3 nights, myself, my husband and two of our children 12 and 9.
After reading the reviews which were mostly really good, I felt a little disappointed. The Hotel to us seemed quite dated although I think it is currently undergoing updating and redecoration. Our rooms were very large and spacious, the bathrooms clean but a mix of new and old and a bit tatty in places, it's like they are trying to update on a budget. The breakfast was ok , but average quality and very little choice of fruit, tinned grapefruit only was on offer. Perhaps we were expecting too much.
We have stayed in lots of different UK hotels so compared with those this one was pretty average overall. Having said that the staff were all very friendly and helpful and service was great.
Kendal itself is a little bleak and I would recommend if coming from the South, travelling a little further into the lakes to stay. A good base though as very easy to jump in the car and get to different areas of the lakes.
