“A Beautiful B&B in the Lake District”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

This B&B ticks all the boxes. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and immaculately clean. You can tell that the owners Mandy and Brian take real pride in their role as not only purveyors of fine accommodation but hosts to assist the guest have a perfect stay. On offer is a wide selection of breakfast cereals and mueslis and the home cooked breakfasts are delicious. Should you need some extra space there is also a beautifully furnished sitting room with writing desk. WiFi connectivity is available throughout the house.

And don't hesitate to ask about directions or ideas for your holiday, they can recommend an ideal itinerary from a wealth of local knowledge. Kendal is also an ideal start point for a Lake District tour. A big plus is that the location is an easy walk to the river and centre of Kendal but far enough away to avoid the noise and traffic of the hectic one-way system. Make this your number one place to stay in Kendal.

Stayed at balcony house as part of a walking holiday and had the most friendly welcome, with a lift to collect me and my friends from our walk and bring us to the hotel. I can honestly say it is the cleanest most well presented guest house I've stayed in and Mandy and her partner were such lovely, warm hosts, genuinely making our stay a wonderful experience, can't recommend them highly enough

We stayed for one night as I was attending a conference at the Riverside Hotel. Mandy and Brian are very welcoming hosts and we so enjoyed our stay in their lovely home. Our room was tastefully decorated, clean and so comfortable to relax in after a long drive. There is a lounge for visitors to use if they so wish. Our delicious breakfasts kept us going for the rest of the day and we will certainly return to Balcony House in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely home to family and friends.

Just back from staying 2 nights in Balcony House with my husband and 2 friends. What a super B&B! Mandy and Brian really go the extra mile to welcome you and offer an excellent service. The rooms are just like in the photos, nothing is just for show. We couldn't fault a thing - all the little touches which they have included really add to your overall experience - bathrobes, sweets, full hospitality tray in your room, toiletries etc. Brian even offered to drive us into town in the evening, which was extremely kind of him. Mandy cooks a mean breakfast, so much so that you don't need to have lunch!! She even catered for my vegetarian husband. They are excellent hosts and we hope to be able to go back again before too long!

Room Tip: Room 1 very spacious, has comfy bed and 2 seater settee. At front of house but very quiet - good dou...

We stayed for just the one night, unfortunately, as we were walking the Dales Way. Mandy and Brian are fantastic hosts and really go the extra mile. Our room had the Wow! factor and was so gorgeous we hardly dared go in with our travel worn clothes. The bath robes are a really considerate touch and the towels well fluffy. Breakfast, with home grown eggs, was marvellous. We intend to stay again soon.

Room Tip: The deluxe double is fantastic

We stayed for 3 nights at Balcony House over the recent Easter weekend. It was a really handy location to travel about the South Lakes area.The double room was beautiful and the whole B and B was immaculate yet cosy at the same time. Mandy and Brian were very welcoming and offered excellent service and facilities. The breakfast was great and the the attention to detail made us want to stay again soon.
