“Wouldn't change a thing”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

A fantastic B&B just minutes from the town centre. The owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Gave great advice on places to visit and were really kind to give us a lift to a few places. Breakfast was delicious and there were lots of little touches around the building that made the stay extra special. Sweets, information leaflets, toiletries and dressing gowns! I wouldn't hesitate to come back again and really wouldn't change a thing about the stay. It really was great! A little gem in the Lake District! Thank you both for a lovely stay.

We have returned yet again to this exceptional B&B. No other b&b comes close to this gem of a place in Kendal. Always a warm welcome from Mandy & Brian. All rooms are luxuriously styled and every effort has been put in to ensure you have a fantastic stay. Lots of homely touches and quality breakfast. Thanks again and see you soon.

We stayed just one night and found Balcony House to be one of the best we have stayed in. We had a warm welcome from Mandy who showed us to our room which overlooked the front (room 1). The room was really well furnished and clean as was the en suite. The bed was really comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic, everything you would expect and well cooked.

Balcony House is within easy flat walking distance of Kendal town centre.

For our short time there Mandy and Brian were great hosts.

I am sure we will return

This is by far the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Brian and Mandy are the perfect hosts - there when you need them but don't encroach on your time. Breakfast is first class produce cooked to perfection by Mandy ably supported by Brian the King of toast, coffee and the washing up! We met Duck-Duck, Albert and George (the first time I've ever stroked a duck!) and sampled freshly laid eggs from the pet Hens. Truly first class - we will return.

My husband and I stayed here between christmas and new year, it was perfect.
Mandy and Brian met us when we checked in, and Mandy showed us to our room, and told us if we wanted to go into town (a short walk away), they would be more than happy to drive us!, and show us around, we have stayed in a lot of places and never been asked this, service at its best.
We stayed for two nights in room one, which is the biggest of the rooms, it is extremely well appointed and spacious.
The room is beautifully decorated and very modern with a very comfy large bed, the bathroom had a large shower with extra little touches, like cotton wool balls e.t.c.
Breakfast was delicious and extremely plentiful, we did feel quite bad because we couldn't eat all of it!.
Mandy and Brian are lovely hosts it was like staying with friends, attentive without being over-bearing, just perfect.
I would just like to say thank you for a wonderful stay (we are off to New Zealand in May!).
I would stay again without hesitation and definitely recommend it.

We stayed for only one night, to break up a long car journey between Scotland and London, but found it to be a highly pleasurable stay and Mandy and Brian couldn't have been more welcoming.

First impressions upon arrival were great, the property is a lovely big old house with a very welcoming hallway and spacious guests lounge. With us staying a Sunday night in the dead of January (the weather did it's best too!!!) we were offered a choice of rooms, which we found extremely accommodating.

Our bed was highly comfortable and having slept like logs, we woke up to a hearty cooked breakfast as well as the choice (which we politely declined) of healthier options!!!

Upon leaving, we found we'd inadvertently left our lights on and flattened our battery, however Mandy and Brian came up trumps with their jump leads.

Would definitely recommend Balcony House to friends, relatives or anyone finding themselves in Kendal, of which our only regret being that we weren't there for longer!!!

Mark & Chi.
