We came to Kendal to watch a gig at Bootleggers Bar. Having never been we did not know what to expect. I booked Sonata on booking.com and am so glad I found it. On arrival we were greeting with a warm friendly smile and given a parking permit to put on our car enabling us to park close by on the street. We left our bags in the hall and then went to park the car. When returning we found our bags had already been taken to the room and we were given lots of info and maps etc about the area and restaurants. They had lots of local info and leaflets (I like that!). We were shown the lovely relaxing front room with papers and fruit that we could take etc then was taken to our room on the top floor. The room was newly refurbished and beautiful but it was the attention to detail that struck me!! We were asked what time we required breakfast? (Offering to go out of her way too as my hubby joked..very late) and she offered to make fresh coffee. We could see that the host tray was more than ample with also herbal and fruit teas biscuits and bottles of water so we kindly declined but what a nice suggestion. Everything in the room seemed excellent expensive quality..from the cups to the bath products. There were robes and slippers, the most brilliant basket of goodies in the bathroom and even a DAB radio. Honestly, I felt like I was in a high quality hotel. There was a stand alone fan and fabulous mirrors in the bathroom for doing my makeup. The walk into the centre of kendal was about 10 mins if that... perfect location and we found the recommended restaurants and bootleggers with ease!! After a brill night, and a good sleep in a comfy bed we went down for a late breakfast.... WOW!!!! REALLY SPECIAL!!! Presentation was beautiful (even though my hubby was having a joke about the green bits...fresh herbs!) And there was so much choice with fruit (loved the apricots) cereals, juices and lots more! Extra toast was offered and there were lovely jams etc. The crockery was high standard too (I notice these things!) There were newspapers too!! Even though we went down late I didn't feel rushed at all. We were allowed to keep the permit on the car whilst we walked back to kendal centre to do a bit of shopping and we posted it back through the door as we left. This B&B is a special treat and the hosts are kind, funny, warm hearted, caring, attentive and offer the perfect relaxing stay! Their attention to detail is amaxing and I really cannot wait to return!!! Thank you x
