    The location of the Riverside is ideal - near the centre of town with car parking faciltities.

    Room was uncomfortably hot !

  • Older travelers

    Its central location adjacent to the river; car parking was available free!Good standard in room

    I feel much more could be made of the menu in the restaurant. The food was good but uninspiring. Pan fried chicken / fish on mashed potatoes hardly demonstrates the chefs culinary skills.The restaurant wasnt very busy; it was such a lovely room with lovely views over the river and with a better menu Im sure people could be enticed to use it. It seems such a shame to miss out on vital revenue that food and drink can give.

    Great location, lovely and relaxing on the riverside. Nice view from 2nd floor window. Breakfast was lovely and plenty of it to keep you going. Bar area was big and airy and we enjoyed sitting there for a few drinks.

    Room too small and compact. Neither myself or my partner could stand up in the shower - it just wasn't a comfortable experience at all. Ceiling in bathroom incredibly low especially when standing in bath to use shower - kept bumping elbows on ceiling. Ouch! Also our room on the 2nd floor was incredibly hot and made for a difficult sleep.

    Lovely 17th century building overlooking the river in a central location.

    It was clean, the room was nice, big and had a beautiful view. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the location was ideal for shopping and sightseeing.

    I found the staff to be welcoming and helpful. The rooms were lovely, comfortable, well equipped and I liked the riverside view. The hotel was in the perfect location for all Kendal has to offer. We used the spa facilities before having an enjoyable breakfast in a bright spacious dining room. Although my stay was brief on this occasion, as I was using it as a stop-over to attend a friends wedding, I would love to return again.

  • Group of friends

    Enjoyed the spa and gym facilities very much. A bit put off by the tv coverage of spa and pool area. Food and service particularly breakfast and evening meal was friendly, attentive and of a high standard. Overall it was a comfortable, welcoming and efficient service made for a very enjoyable stay, thank you

    Not sure why you would want tv coverage of pool area. It's not intrusive when you are on there but a bit weird that anyone coming onto reception can view!

  • Single

    The staff were very friendly, the room was ready for us before the check in time. It is in a great location for the town centre with lovely views off the river.

    The room was very hot during the night.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The hotel was very well placed for our holiday with rooms overlooking a lovely view. Very convenient for seeing Kendal on foot and the staff and good food made it a very enjoyable stay one I would recommend to anyone else wantinga short break.

  • Couple

    The location is ideal for exploring south lakes.

    The room doors are very heavy and no matter how you close them, they bang loudly - hence constant banging noise throughout the hotel - not relaxing. Also the covered parking spaces are so small it's very hard to park.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    I have stayed here on a few occasions and enjoyed all of them, the staff are 1st class and the location is second to none. If I go to the lakes I try to get in this hotel.

  • Single
    10.0

    My room was spacious, the breakfast ( I only book b/b) was hot and plentyful. The staff were friendly and officiant. I booked the hotel because it was close to the station, and it was only a 15min walk to Rugby Club so location was perfect .

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Our room overlooked the river and had a huge windowseat that was unique. The hotel is well located in Kendal with easy access to the town centre. Parking was provided which was a welcome amenity.

    We were disappointed with the lack of concern/ attention desk staff exhibited regarding the phone that didn't work; although this was reported immediately after check in, the problem was never fixed nor did we receive any follow up. Staff was very casual about this when I brought it up again the next day at check out. Similarly, one of the bedside reading lights did not work. Made us wonder about the overall attention to detail and customer service.
