눉The reception staff were most often not there and left my bags, including lap top, unattended behind reception for over 10 minutes with the door open, so anyone could have taken them. The bell to call them did not work and I had to leave my key on the desk, as no one was around to check me out.
Decor tired and badly in need of refurbishment, with a shower that was wholly inadequate and worse than a mixer tap shower head. Only soap provided and no shower gel or shampoo etc.
Breakfast was the smallest portion I have had in years, with an under-cooked sausage I left and cheap produce (not in keeping with Lake District standards).
눇It is very convenient for Kendal station (right opposite) and only a 5-10 minutes walk into the centre of Kendal (whoever said 20 mins must have used a zimmer frame and I know Kendal well!).
It is adequate for an overnight stay, if you don't care too much about quality, though rooms clean, good linen and a comfortable bed.
It's in a quieter part of town, though close enough for restaurants and pubs.
