Pristine. Perfectly warm welcome, inexpensive for the standard. Fantastic breakfast and a real homely atmosphere. Easy parking and a five minute walk to the centre of town. Landlady is friendly. Helpful and truly cares about the quality of your stay. Recommended fully.

We stayed here for 1 night and booked 4 rooms. Overall, the stay was fine. The rooms were average, although the showers were not very good - they changed changed temperature and were not very powerful. The hotel owner was friendly upon arrival and breakfast was lovely. Unfortunately, we were left feeling very disappointed after out stay due to a...

I am sorry you left feeling disappointed after your recent visit. As all prices I quote both online, over the phone and in house are priced as per person I am unsure how the misunderstanding occurred and I apologise for that. I phoned a fellow owner as this was a first experience for me, in my 27 years as a...

Myself and my partner stayed for two nights in September. Our room was spotless and comfortable and had all we needed. Breakfast was freshly cooked using quality ingredients and was delicious. Pam is the perfect landlady - extremely helpful and attentive but discreet. The location is perfect for a short walk into the town centre along the river and the...

The room was clean and had everything we needed though neither of us felt the...

My wife & I stayed for two nights in this very good B & B. Visitors should be prepared for smallish rooms in this end of last century property. The bedrooms are well appointed with tea/coffee making facilities & a tv. Pam's welcome was outstanding as were the breakfasts which removed any thoughts of lunch! We did not have our...

Staying there for a month, very impressed. Pam very attentive and a good cook too! Hasn't burnt my eggs once! Car park requires a bit of marshaling to get everybody in in the right order.Car parking is found by passing the guest house coming out of Kendal and turning left at the lights, then first left and first left again...
