    An alternative to staying in Kendal

    I had stayed in the Greyhound in July 2019 and used it again recently instead of staying in Kendal whilst on a two day course. Great food, clean rooms and friendly service attracted me back

    Stopover close to M6

    Only a one night stay but had a clean and spacey room. Menu a little disappointing for a Friday night as a few things off the menu but breakfast very good. Plenty of safe parking, WiFi free but not brilliant reception, friendly staff. Ideal location for touring and as a stop over on a long drive to scotland

    Great hotel, excellent in every way

    Absolutely brilliant in every way. We booked late and they bent over backwards to be helpful, including getting our meal sorted for us when we arrived quite late. The room was charming; clean, comfortable, stylish with a lovely view. The food was also excellent and ideally situated as a stop-off on our trip to Scotland. Top marks!

  • 4.0.Fair

    Not what was expected from the good reviews. Very slow check-in process due to lack of staff. Around 20 flys in room on arrival. Took 1 hour 40 mins! from taking table reservation to actually being served food at restaurant prices (no apology). Toilet wouldn't flush and power was out in room when arriving back for second night. Room wasn't properly serviced between nights e.g. No milk or teabags replaced. Most issues resolved after bringing them up with management. Although too many to earn a recommendation or return visit.

    Really friendly and helpful staff gave a warm welcome from arrival through to breakfast the next day. The room was huge and well fitted out but a little drafty - we were in the middle of storm Erik! The food was excellent and we really enjoyed Friday night in the bar afterwards. Overall, a great place for a stopover on the way north. Thanks to everyone at The Greyhound.
