“Great Find in Kendal”
Reviewed 18 June 2018 for a stay in April 2018

'Great base from which to explore the lakes and so convenient if you want a break from driving, to have so much to do within walking distance.
Even had a day out by train to Windermere as the station was only 5mins walk away. We loved our gentle walk along the river, feeding the ducks and birds.
The apartment is comfy with everything we needed and more (great shower).
Carol the owner made us feel so welcome, even did some shopping for us because we were tired after a long drive.

“The perfect holiday break”
Reviewed 18 June 2018 for a stay in November 2017

The apartment was ideal, small comfortable and well equipped. It was a bonus to be in the centre of town and still have a parking space. We enjoyed having breakfast by the window watching the ducks and occasional dog, having a swim in the river.  It was great not having to take the car when we wanted to go for a meal or drink in the evening.  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We are already planning to return next year.

“Didn't live up to the promise”
Reviewed 13 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018
person found this review helpful

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.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   No.

Earl, your review paints a very distorted account of your stay.
Immediately on your arrival you complained about having booked 6 individual days instead of a full week, which would have cost less money. I offered you an extra day free of charge because I could not personally refund the difference, as your transaction was through Trip Advisor, New Zealand. It was clear you weren’t happy you felt you had overpaid and unfortunately this reflected on everything else throughout your stay.

The photo of the apartment overlooking the river is not inaccurate and I assume your gross misdescription of ‘located in a semi-industrial area’ is your perception of the main road outside the rear entrance to the building. The locals of kendal would be grossly offended with your insult.

You complain I was still cleaning on your arrival, but you omit to mention that I gave you £20 to buy some lunch to save you waiting 15 Minutes for me to finish. Your wife suggested you buy some beers instead.

I responded immediately to your complaint about a smell. A drainage inspection was undertaken whilst you were out for the day. which confirmed the smell was NOT being caused by anything within the apartment , but coming from the river. You did admit that you could also smell it outside! You never raised any suggestion of alternative accommodation. I m sorry you ‘lost your breakfast one morning’ but I don’t think this was any fault of the apartment!

Despite my best efforts to make you happy, your final text told me you would not give me a good review, quoting ‘value for money'. It was very obvious what you were hinting. I responded 'i’ll leave that to your integrity’ Sadly this scathing review is the result.

“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 1 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018
person found this review helpful

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
