“Great food;friendly staff”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

On our driving holiday around the UK, we stopped for the night at this wonderful B&B. The girls greeted us very warmly and our accomodation was great with a fab breakfast. Secure parking is a bonus here. The Brewery behind Highgate was a great place also to wet our whistles.

We stayed here for 2 nights. There was no requirement for a deposit when booked over the phone. The room ,a twin ,was exceptionally clean, and warm if abit dated. Spare bedding for any cold nights was placed in the room. The full English breakfast was well cooked and the food was of good quality and plentiful. The hotel was ideally situated for the town centre of Kendal and was also ideal if going for days out into the lakes or the Yorkshire dales.
Tea and coffee facilities were in the room and replenished each day.
There is ample secure parking which is located behind the hotel

Just had a night at this hotel, it was our first stay here although we go to Kendal quite regular.
Had a warm welcome from Linda, room comfortable en-suite all Immaculately clean, spotless, hotel in good location for all shops, restaurants, bar's. Breakfast was plenty and cooked perfectly.
Bed was so comfortable, had tea& coffee facilities in room and a hairdryer and tv too.
It is a historic Grade 2 listed townhouse,rebuilt in 1769 lovely charming house, even had a beautiful original fireplace in the room.

Have stayed here a few times because it is right next door to our friends house. It really could do with a bit of plastering and general decoration. The bathrooms could do with modernisation.The walls pretty much held together with woodchip wallpaper. The floors slope quite badly and there are some low parts to the rooms that you easily scuff your head on. On the plus side staff are friendly enough, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. You cannot fault the location either. On the whole a bit overpriced given the condition of the internal subfloors, walls and decoration. Would stay there again mainly because of location. With a little effort would gladly pay more to stay here.

This hotel is ideally located for the centre of Kendal. The rooms are immaculate and the breakfasts too die for,sets you up nicely for your day ahead. Overall very good value for money.
They also take larger parties ie groups of walkers or as we were a touring squash club every one said they could not fault the hotel or the hospitality given.
