The location is good, very close to the centre of the town. Kendal is a lovely township and a great place from which to explore The Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, and Hadrian's Wall.
The apartment is compact and comfortable enough; the bedroom is very small, like those in a Japanese hotel. The photo gives an inaccurate picture; there is a view of the river and green space beyond from this window, but the property is actually located in a semi-industrial area. Car parking is difficult and cramped and is among several abandoned or stored vehicles.
The owner is pleasant enough, but failed to deliver on two points. The first is that despite text messages sent and acknowledged by her concerning our arrival time late in the afternoon, she was still there cleaning when we arrived a few minutes after the agreed time. The second was a smell emanating from the toilet cubicle. Apparently it was something dead under the floor or in the walls. It got increasingly bad during our stay, to the point that I lost my breakfast one morning when I went in there. I appreciate that the smell might have been beyond her control, but she made no offer to help find alternative accommodation, or to compensate us. When I told her I wouldn't be able to give our stay a good review, she inferred by text that giving a bad review would somehow reflect on MY integrity.
When I read the other reviews, I find it hard to believe it's the same place we stayed in. During our trip in England we stayed in some properties In Devon and Cornwall that were far superior to this and cost less. If I was vising Kendal, I'd find somewhere else to stay.
Really comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Carol (owner) was very welcoming and ensured we knew how everything worked.
Very nice touch was Tea/Coffee/milk/biscuits in the kitchen so after long drive you can sit down with a drink before going out for shopping.
2 minute walk to Town and Station.
Small but very comfortable and well equipped. Parking would be a problem for anyone with a large car
The apartment was exactly as described - very well equipped kitchen, good size sitting room, comfy bed, small bathroom - but how much space do you need - separate toilet. Carol was on hand to meet us and gave us a good introduction to the apartment which is good - and had left chocolates and biscuits which are always appreciated! The location is great - right on the riverside and 5 minutes’ walk into town / to the local bus station. There is a parking space in front of the apartment - but it isn’t huge. However you are in the centre of the town so to be expected. I would definitely return here again. Many thanks
Nice welcome by the owner, all the little touches were greatly appreciated, even milk in the fridge so we could have a cuppa!
Great not to have to use the car as all the transport links were brilliant.
