Reviewed 3 June 2014

took the wife to the balcony house in Kendal. both Brian and Amanda were fantastic hosts, we asked for recommendations on places to eat and drink and the places they pointed out were great, the balcony house is excellent with fantastic bedrooms, a lovely lounge and a fantastic breakfast, we would highly recommend that if you are going to the lakes look this one up.

Balcony House is a charming B and B. Amanda greeted us warmly. Bedroom was very comfortable, hospitality tray one of the best! It was only a short walk to the local pub for a quick real ale for the driver after a long journey! Super comfortable bed and a great breakfast rounded off a lovely stay. Amanda and her husband chatted over breakfast and gave us good advice and directions for a visit to Kendal itself.
Would certainly return when visiting the Lakes.

I stayed at this fantastic B&B for a second time in six months last weekend.
The accommodation is fabulous - the beds are very comfortable, the decor very tasteful and it's immaculately maintained.
The breakfast served up by Mandy and Brian is simply awesome - fruit juice, a range of cereals, yogurts, as much toast as you want and an absolutely massive and delicious full English breakfast. if you manage to finish it you won't need a lunch !
Above all else is the warm welcome you get from Mandy and Brian. They are genuinely interested in you and are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
I can't recommend this B&B highly enough and will certainly return the next time I'm in Kendal.

Very welcoming B&B with wonderfully comfortable bed. Immaculately clean, contemporary decor and lots of little extras which you don't always get in small establishments. As its on the edge of Kendal there is a short (5 mins) walk into town but this does mean you can park easily outside the property. Brian gave us directions to a more secluded car park at Windemere which avoided traffic queues and meant we could park easily. Will definitely stay again if back in the area.

Room Tip: We had room 2 at the back of the property - very quiet.

From the moment we stepped in, we felt very welcome and comfortable. Mandy showed us where everything was and gave us menus for all the nearby restaurants. The breakfast was delicious. The eggs they served were laid by their own hens! Can't any more organic than that. We got a little introduction to a couple of hens as well..one was a bit broody :)
Loved our weekend there

stayed at this hotel in April and have to say that it is one of the best B&B's I've ever stayed in. Mandy and Brian the hosts are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high standard. I have stayed in a lot of 4 star hotels and the bedrooms at Balcony House are just as good if not better! The breakfast is simply delicious and there is something for everybody. This B&B is a true gem and is a perfect place to stay if you want to tour the lakes. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: had a look in all rooms and they are all beautiful
