Stayed here for two nights, received a very warm welcome, yes the hotel does need a bit of decorating, however the room, bathroom, bedding, towels were all beautifully clean. The staff are extremely hard working and the manager, Michael is excellent, nothing is too much trouble for him. We had a lovely stay and will return if in the area...

Stayed here for a night about eighteen months ago. Came back for one night expecting improvements to the rooms but unfortunately bathrooms still badly in need of an upgrade. Cobwebs hanging from bedroom ceiling and window area needed plastering and painting. Single glazing didn't help keep the traffic noise out. On the positive side the meals and service were very...

Pleasantly surprised, as for the low price we had paid didn't expect too much. Welcoming and cheerful staff, a comfortable room and an excellent breakfast. Yes it does want updating and parking is a small problem but when you add that to the overall cost you still get very good value for money. Ideal position for visiting Kendal and the...

Just spent 2 nights here, requested a quiet room and that.s what I got. Didn't hear anyone the first night but 2nd night, people slamming doors to their rooms around 1am. What is wrong with people? Why can't they close doors quietly???? Single room is of a decent size, bed comfy-ish but cheap furniture but as it.s only 2 star...

A lovely welcoming hotel. Michael the manager and Anne his assistant were wonderful. My single room was clean and had good new furniture. No view unfortunately. The menu was very good, Each of the three courses for the evening meal had four options, different every day, tasty and well-cooked. Excellent for such a modestly-priced holiday.

I was instantly transported back to 1975 when I unlocked the door of my twin room at the County Hotel! If you are nostalgic for melamine, plywood and plastic, this is the place for you! The tiny TV was activated by a switch on a "Rediffusion" console (company ceased to exist in 1988). The telephone handset was vintage British Telecom...
