Most lovely b&b we have ever stayed in. Your made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Fantastic breakfast, bedroom and hosts. Will definitely stay again. Hosts are very knowledgeable of the area and will advise all they can.

Just had an overnight stay with Mandy and Brian, and couldn't recommend it more. We're in Kendal again for The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival - and if we hadn't been already booked elsewhere, we'd have been delighted to have stayed at Balcony House for the weekend.
Nothing was too much trouble, the room was terrific - very comfy bed, and we had bad backs - they made our very brief stay even better than we could have anticipated. Thanks again!

I don't usually prefer B&B accomodation. But Balcony House was a real treat. Our room was far more beautiful than the photos. Plush and luxurious. I have never seen so much loving attention to detail. Wonderful bedding, beautiful plants and flowers, real coffee, bottled water, toiletries and other thoughtful supplies.. everything you might need on a night away from home. It is a delight to stay in a place so committed to excellence. Yet so unique and friendly. The breakfast is hugely generous in quality and size. Neither my husband nor myself could finish ours.

Just spent two perfect nights at the Balcony. From first arriving Mandy and Brian make you feel very welcome, their knowledge of the area is worth it's weight in gold, everything they recommended,we tried and was not disappointed. I was visiting with three other friends and we were all delighted with our rooms, which were spotless, comfortable, beautifully furnished and decorated. We all sampled the full English breakfast that was plentiful, delicious and set us up for the day.
For Brian and Mandy nothing is to much trouble and they work very hard to ensure you enjoy your stay in Kendal and I can confirm we did.

Enjoyed an excellent stay at this exemplary B&B.

Mandy and Brian have considered every last detail. Beautifully furnished and with delightful little touches at every turn, Balcony House is a must.

It’s also baby-friendly. Our nine-month-old daughter caused quite the racket one night, but our hosts were more than accommodating.

And Brian is quite the raconteur. His amusing anecdotes made a delicious breakfast even more enjoyable.

I stayed at Balcony House with some colleagues whilst attending a training course in the area. The hosts are two of the most friendly and welcoming people I have met in a long time. After our travel to Balcony House was delayed we arrived quite late but that was no problem. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean, and breakfast was great.

Only stayed for one night here but I really enjoyed it. Mandy and Brian were so helpful and friendly during my stay. Brian even kindly dropped me off at the bus station the next morning, not only that but also offered to pick me up from the train station on my arrival. The bedroom was really nice and cosy and the bed was very comfortable, I agree with other reviewers that it is probably the comfiest I've slept in!

The cooked breakfast was delicious! There were also other options to choose from which included a range of cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit and a range of teas or coffee. There is also a selection of DVDs to choose from to play in your room if you wish. Would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks again.
