Would recommend everything about this hotel, location very close to centre, nice view of river, good food, nice pool & spa facilities and very friendly staff. Room a little hot but easily solved by switching radiators off.

Efficient check in ( we'd already booked and paid so it was a signature and a car registration number). Good sized room (302) overlooking the river. Car parked 30 yards down the road in the hotel's covered car park.
Well organised buffet breakfast (with good scrambled eggs).
Every member of staff we spoke to was friendly and enthusiastic.
The best bit - location 6/10 minutes to the centre of Kendal.

Room Tip: Check you're getting a river view

Brought my partner here for a 2 day break prior to his birthday. Room was spotless, fabulous views of the river from our room where we spotted a heron, cormorant and kingfisher. I booked the winter getaway deal which really was excellent value. Both the food and service was excellent, staff were very professional and friendly. The hotel is well placed for exploring windermere and other areas in the vicinity. Really enjoyed staying here and would definitely recommend this hotel.

I booked a short break at this hotel and was really happy with my choice. The hotel facilities are very good and the staff are all very helpful & polite. The leisure facilities are excellent, with a well equipped gym along with a good swimming pool, which also has a sauna and steam room. The location is absolutely ideal as it is located near Kendal town centre with adequate (free) car parking. The location also offers easy access to the rest of the Lake District. The breakfasts are buffet style with a huge selection of well cooked food. The restaurant offers good quality dining, served by very attentive staff. This hotel offers great value for money and I highly recommend it if you are visiting the area.

Room Tip: The river view rooms have a lovely outlook and are very quiet.
