Hillside is up a steep hill, not a problem for us but might be for others. Richard very friendly and accommodating. Came and went as we pleased. Room very clean lovely view from window. Would recommend this hotel to friends as it's very close to the city centre.

A great place to stay in Kendal, just a short walk downhill to the centre of town. An immaculate guest house with parking permits available. Wendy cooks a fine breakfast which is served by Richard with a smile and a chat. If you are a single, ask for Room 1 which is large with spotless en-suite.

Richard and Wendy were more than helpful in every way possible. Richard suggested some great walking routes and even lent us his own walking maps. The rooms were exceptionally clean, the food was home cooked, the overall service was excellent. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you both for making our holiday even more enjoyable.

The owners are very very helpful, they provide suggestions and make you feel at home. All is superclean and room smells nicely. My English is horrible but I just leave this comment for future travellers and to say thanks to Richard and Wendy for being so nice and professional at the same time.

Wendy and Richard were very helpful. They have a very clean and cozy B&B. There was nothing to dislike. Breakfast was great and if you are looking for an early evening supper we recommend the 'Blue Moon' in town.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night, but found the owners very helpful and friendly. The B&B is well located close to the center of Kendal and within walking distance of multiple Pubs and restaurants. Breakfast was wonderful and the owners helped us find a scenic route to our next destination. We found the rooms clean, neat & tidy and very...

Cosy, comfy and great value. Smashing people, and great breakfast. Sausages were scrummy ! Just one night stay, but very nice indeed. Great fun going down bank to have dinner, especially if you have wobble knees.

Our every need was catered for from the minute we arrived - parking permit given to park outside, room ready on arrival. We had excellent communication with Richard prior our visit and he guided us for our visit with recommendations which included places to eat. Lovely bedding and an exceptional nights sleep. Wendy prepared a fantastic breakfast which catered for...
