“Dont blink”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

Lovely stone building in a strange position out of town on a road difficult to access. We drove past it and had to go into town to turn around, go past it again on the other side of the road to turn around a few miles down the road; very frustrating. Warm welcome and nice clean and spacious room. Garage next door for a few vitals otherwise into town for refreshments. Breakfast in a box was not attempted as the very though is unappetising. No free Wifi, thin plastic cups, wafer of soap are penny pinching ideas that will put people off using Travelodge.

If you listen to your sat nav, you will end up in some god forsaken lane opposite the hotel. It is situated on the main road immediately before the petrol station.

Not a lot of facilities in the immediate area, so either eat sarnies out of the petrol station or travel into Kendal. Hotel itself is clean and functional, sleep quality was fine, cleanliness was good. I would return if needing to break the journey from Scotland to the south of England.

Room Tip: Beautiful views to the rear of the hotel.

Easy check in. Clean room, all facilities that could be needed.
Don't see why people are moaning, open your eyes and you might spot it off the road, it isn't really that hidden!
Good price and comfy bed, convenient garage next door and close to main lake district locations.
Would have no hesitation using this again.

My daughter, son in law, 4 grandsons and myself stayed here on 27 & 28th December. To start with there is little or no signage from road so we passed before we saw it. When we checked in we were having 2 family rooms we were show into our rooms one room had double bed and 2 singles but only 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel and 2 cups, the other room had only the double bed and no singles I informed them that I would be sleeping in there with 2 of my grandsons they came and put 1 single bed up as they were on Christmas staff we had 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel and 1 cup. Both rooms were dirty the bath plug in my daughters room was so covered in hair and slime we requested the staff come clean it so my daughter could bathe my grandsons, they came and just took the hair off, we requested it be cleaned properly which was done. the next day we went out and on returning around 6 couldn't get into 1 room as they had had a leak, we had to moved to new rooms which were upstairs without a lift, my son in law had to help the staff carry up single beds as they wasn't any up there, again we had to clean the rooms before we could sleep in them....the kettle in my room was disgusting ......I would NOT recommend this travel lodge is spoiled what was otherwise an enjoyable break......I know it was between Christmas and New Year but I don't think that it was any excuse it had been booked and paid for for months in advance

We are sorry to learn of your disappointment Aftergran. We expect our hotels to be easily accessible for our guests so is it regrettable to learn you found it was not adequately sign posted. Our housekeeping team go through a specific routine when cleaning a room and all rooms are required to be clean and fresh with the correct amount of linen and towels for the number of occupants so we are truly sorry to learn you found the room to be below our usual standards. We’d like to be able to contact you to find a resolution.

This branch of the well known hotel chain is situated a few miles from Jn 36 of the M6, on the main road into the South Lakes. It's in a nice, rural spot, next to a highway service station and just half a mile from Kendal. Also handy for Windermere and Bowness. There is ample parking right outside.

Used this Travelodge 3 or 4 times now and is a great place to stay. Very clean & tidy with friendly staff. Although just outside Kendal town it is very easy to get to in the car and is in a very quiet spot - the main road is very quiet at night so no traffic noise. And very competitively priced for the Kendal area! Will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Newly decorated with great beds, fluffy duvets and a smashing location, this Travelodge cannot be beaten. The staff were lovely and friendly, easy to park, costa coffee at the petrol station and easy access to Kendal and surrounding areas.
You know what you are getting with a Travelodge, with this one though it is just that bit better, will be back many times in the future I am sure.
The new childrens beds are great, much more comfortable than the old ones :-)

Room Tip: Try and get a rear facing room
