Beautiful hotel in beautiful location, by far the nicest Best Western I've stayed at. Great on site pub, great outside seating for a beer. I didn't ear here as food service finished at 930pm but restaurant looked very clean, contemporary and modern. Staff were pleasant and helpful and rooms clean and nicely decorated. It also has a leisure club which...

It is a 20 minute walk down into the middle of Kendal but a taxi back is recommended if you don’t fancy the climb back up the hill. It is worth it when you get here as the views are wonderful! Please mention your preference for a front facing room at the booking stage and the team will do their...

We stayed overnight and had a twin bed room which was quite large for a reasonably priced hotel. Our experience in Best Western hotels has not been good and this one is exceptional. The staff were helpful and managed to find a ground floor room as the upper floors are accessed by stairs.

This Hotel would have been excellent if the size of the Double Room.had been larger. The room almost seemed liked a Single Room but with a double bed. The wardrobe was a single size.

Thank you for your constructive review. Please accept my apologies that the safe didn’t work and for the lack of attention with this matter. This is something I have followed up with the team. We do have plans to completely refurbish 33 standard bedrooms during the winter months. Whilst this won’t increase their size they will be having new decoration...

We booked this hotel for 2 nights. It is situated in lovely grounds but there is a steep drive up to reception which is right at the top of the hill. There is limited car park spacing on this level but plenty of spaces lower down. One thing to be careful of however is their pricing strategy. We all expect...

Many thanks for reviewing your two night stay with us. Being set on a hillside the hotel offers lovely views across Kendal and towards the Lakeland fells. We do encourage guests to drive right upto the hotel entrance upon arrival to check in and unload luggage before parking on one of our four car parks to avoid an unnecessary hike...

Unfortunately we only spent one night here. We could have stayed forever! The hotel is a delight. The food outstanding. The views really good and the Woodland Walk very good. Worth staying just to see the gardens. If we are in the area again, we will certainly re-book.

The gardens are lovely at any time of the year but are currently benefiting from the extra warmth we have seen in the last few weeks, everything is in full bloom! The gardening team have their work cut out with 12 acres to look after so it’s always nice for their hard work to be recognised via guest feedback! Ben
