Hi Ian & Janet,
Thanks again for taking time to review Sonata Guest House.
When people now ask us how to spell Sonata, we say it’s like the Scottish strawberry! :)

Thanks again for your card, Chocolates and Single Malt.

See you soon.

Best wishes
Inoka

The place was lovely and clean. Excellent breakfast and hospitality. Cannot fault it. You will need transportation to get to the lakes, otherwise the location was good too. Parking a bit tricky but not impossible.

Yes being near the town centre, sometimes parking is a little tricky - especially if there is a big event or festival. But we have always managed to find guests parking and all rooms have permits - so guests can leave their car all day and walk into town. Thank you for your kind comments.

We spent a night at the Sonata last month on our visit of the Lake District coming from France and we found this B&B very comfortable. The couple who owns it is extremely welcoming, always ready to help. The location is excellent. The breakfast was very good and we recommend thisplace to whoever is looking for a place to sleep in Kendal.

We we made very welcome. Spotless room and bathroom. Nice area, easily accessible to town centre and easy to find. Excellent choice of breakfast, all local produce, good coffee, all of which was well presented. Would not hesitate to return if in the area.

Four of us stayed for a night on our way to Scotland. Perfect start to our holiday.
Very warm welcome with coffee offered to us on our early arrival.
Very comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast.
Would thoroughly recommend.

What a superb start we had to our holidays. We stayed for a night at the Sonata on our way to Scotland and this set us up in style. The accomodation was excellent and we went to a lovely Italian restaurant close by on the recommendation from the owner. The highlight was the excellent freshly cooked breakfast which my husband raved about and the selection of fruit and yougurts was super too The couple running the B7B were so helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the Lake District Thank you

Thank you for taking the time to write. We are delighted that the accommodation and breakfast were good - two things essential for a B&B! There are more great restaurants here we can recommend when you are next in Kendal. Hope to see you both again.

Best regards,

We stayed at sonata during our Dales Way walk. It was 2 miles from the route but it was worth it. The room was comfy with a bath (bonus), everything you'd expect from a B&B. sonata is run by a friendly and helpful couple who advised us where to eat, gave us a lift back to the way in the morning and filled our flasks and drinks bottles. Very obliging. They have recently purchased the hotel and were proud of the fact that they were making gradual improvements to what was, we understand, an already good B&B. breakfast was excellent. Freshly cooked and a good selection. The best on our walk.
