We have just returned from a stay at the Kings in kendal, and found the hotel, very nice, so many nice things to say,but sadly also a couple of negative ones
The good things, the staff can not do enough for you, so friendly, we arrived at 11am and the room was ready, a nice four poster room, very clean and the hotel staff had left some chocolates in the room for our anniversary, i told them when we booked it was a special weekend and they must have remembered and that was such a nice thing to do..well done to you all
the barfood was nice and well priced and on a very cold day it was nice and warm
The parking is free and perfect when you get the permit from the hotel, no problem at all
The breakfast was excellent,one of the best ever and the waitress very helpful,so a lot of good
Now the disappointments, i was a little upset when the room did not have a bath in the bathroom just a shower, when i asked to be moved to a room with a bath i was told all the rooms had showers, so a real downer for me, i do love a nice soak in a bath on my nights away
the real problem was the noise..it was awful and as it was a quiet Thursday night i dread to think what it is like at weekends and busy times, i had to wear the ear plugs which were in the room,so obviously they know this is a problem, but i did feel uncomfortable wearing ear plugs....once the bar had closed we had a good nights sleep
all in all the Kings is a nice place, but i would say it is rooms above a pub, rather than a hotel....still for £83 for us both for the night and bed and breakfast it was not overcharged....
