Stayed here for 1 saturday night at the end of jan 2012.
We stayed in the double bed room with the four poster bed. To be honest, the room was very small, and so was the bathroom. We paid £5 extra to have the four poster bed'd room however we ended up with a much smaller room as the twin rooms facing the front of the hotel (ours was facing the car park at the back) were twice the size and you save the £5 for not having the posh bed!
The owners were really friendly and welcoming which we liked. We took our dog with us which they charged us another £5 for the extra cleaning needed etc
Free parking to the rear of the hotel was handly as Burton in Kendal doesnt have much free parking space available.
The hotel in best described as homely rather than a hotel or b&b. Very quiet during the night, cant really complain about anything!!
We will be staying in Burton in Kendal again and will be staying here for sure.
