"Excellent choice for the Kendal area"
We were there for only the one night, and it was more of a landing pad than anything else (so we didn't take advantage of the pool area or the restaurant in the evening, etc.). I did request a riverside room as per someone else's review, and it was lovely and Venician almost to have the water slip past under the window. We were also able to bring our dog for a reasonable fee, which was one of the reasons we chose this particular hotel. The breakfast buffet was quite good. There is a selection of hot foods, with small platters that seemed to be monitored carefully by the folks behind the counter. There is also a selection of cereals and fruit and fruit juices. My only complaint was that the ready-made tea tasted like it had been made in a coffeemaker with some grounds still stuck in (I would have expected a bit better from a British hotel) - but there was also a selection of herbal and black tea bags sitting next to a carafe of hot water, so I was able to have my cuppa done properly. I don't know if we'll be back in the near future - there are so many places in the Lake District to explore, and it is better to stay local for walking - but this is an excellent choice for the Kendal area.

"A good stay at the Riverside"
Over a wet & very windy 2 day stay in the Lakes District, the Riverside was a friendly retreat from the weather. The Tannery Bar with its veranda overlooking the river was good for coffee, a drink and a quick meal. The staff were great. The hotel is well situated as a base from which to drive the Lakes district. We enjoyed our comfortable twin room here and as the conditions around the lakes were miserable we booked a second night at the Riverside.

"Very enjoyable weekend break"
We found some minor niggles, the decor is a little tired in places, the bed a little firm for my liking, the room was very warm, breakfast was average. Otherwise I cannot fault this hotel, the staff especially were lovely, the location is great, the room was spacious and it's a lovely building. There is parking which is at a premium in the town centre, and we'd definitely use it again.

"Enjoyed the Stay"
Enjoyed the stay. Great location next to the river. We enjoyed our pints sitting on the balcony and also food. Some of the decor of the hotel was slightly tired. And some staff can smile little bit better. There was not much of a Good Morning/Good evening interaction when you leave or enter the building. Apart from that it was a fantastic location. Enjoyed the spa facilities. Sauna temperature for 2 days was not that great but certainly improved over the course of stay. The hotel looks marvellous from the outside. And having a parking is a huge plus point for the guests. The food was reasonably priced. It would be great to see different items on the specials board. Over 3 days it has not changed. We enjoyed the visit but there are certainly things to improve.

"A little dated, but great location!"
The hotel itself was very dated and in need of a re-furb, our room was an ex-smoking room and you couldn't help but notice the stale smell of smoke, which was a shame. but on the flip side, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the location was perfect! Only a short walk over the river to the town and the breakfast was superb!

"Average 3 stars. Had a bad experience"
Value for money in this average 3 stars hotel. Great gym with a very decent and clean facilities. Great indoors pool. The gym could benefit from better ventilation. Staff both at the gym and at the hotel really friendly. One feels welcomed. Breakfast is just average with average normal ingredients. Decent breakfast for the price. One of the extra beds ordered was in a very poor condition and it was a nightmare to sleep there until they changed it on the second day. So if you are travelling with family be aware of the fact that double beds are standard . Which means they're queen size. So, shorter than normal double beds. Staff kindly suggested sharing but it wouldn't be possible given the actual size of their double beds. Incomparable views of the river. The hotel has a pub restaurant that has a beautiful balcony by the river. Probably the most relaxing and quiet one in the heart of the town. Will recommend for couples and business. Would be cautious about bed numbers and extra bed's quality and type. Toiletries excellent, bathroom was a bit smelly but daily cleaning was kindly arranged and nice towels which are always welcomed .

"Disappointed"
I thought that it would be overlooking a lovely river, but it was rather a murky river and the rooms faced a car park and office block on the other side of the river. I had room service for supper and no condiments were brought with it. I had put the tray outside the door as requested and it was still there when I went for breakfast at 8:30am - not an appetising sight! I was told that breakfast would be served on the second floor but not WHERE and there wasn't a sign to tell me. I wasn't told on arrival if I could get an evening meal in the hotel, or if I could, where I would go - hence the room service as I was too tired to go searching. Very disappointed!

"Hotel near town centre."
Nice Hotel with pleasant staff. I cannot say the same about the Health Club staff. I wanted a swim and went to the Club reception but felt like the invisible man. Nobody acknowledged I was there, one of the staff even knocked into me as he ran past, they were busy looking busy until I asked where the changing rooms and pool were. Impolite I thought.

"We will be back again."
Excellent stay. Had a long weekend with the family and the dog. The room was lovely, overlooking the river. The staff were very efficient and pleasant. Breakfast was perfect. My only criticism, and it is only a little one, is that the woodwork in the passages was badly scuffed and could do with painting, likewise with some of the wallpaper. But that is just nit picking. We will be returning.

"Great location and great price"
The hotel is in a great central location and had lovely views across the River Kent. Although the room hasn't huge it was satisfactory for a couple and when you factor in the use of the gym and breakfast included the price was very good. If you use satnav do not be confused if it takes you out of the town first, Kendal has a one way system that confuses me everythime I visit.

Very nice hotel with good facilities. There were a couple of negatives 1) how abrupt the receptionist was, apparently I heard her telling one of her colleagues, she had been called in on her day off to cover for sickness! 2) Went to the bar for a meal and there was only one bar person on duty and the service was incredibly slow.

We eat in the bar on the first evening because we were hungry on arrival and the restaurant didn't open till 6:30pm. The burger was horrible! Fake meat!!! Not nice at all. It is so easy for a burger to be made from fresh so the fake they used frozen processed burgers that were made up of god knows what! On the positive side the Chips were good! Food was over priced!. No fridge in room. Cobwebs and spider on the window of the stair well! Not hard to get a duster out and remove cobwebs from the inner window!

"Comfi stay"
We went to visit The lake district and I have found this hotel online with a good price tag and good reviews. I have enjoyed the stay for over 3 days. I did enjoy the breakfast the first day but I couldnt see myself eating the english full breakfast everyday. The pool facilities were good and I have used the sauna also. Shame that opening times for this to enjoy are a bit inadequate closing at 20:00 on the weekends. The room was comfi and the service was good. Parking was also available but not enough spaces were free. Overall good value for the money.

I stayed at the Riverside for one night whilst visiting Cumbria for business. The hotel is positoned in a pleasent riverside location across a bridge from the station and town centre. The room was clean and comfortable, and adequate for a business stay. I ate in the bar on the evening, which was very quiet (Monday night), but the food was good and fairly priced.

"Pleasant stay"
This was a nice place to stay with a lovely view of the river. It was a little expensive, unless you make full use of the pool, spa and gym activities. I booked a room for a couple and one child but when I got there they said only a cot would fit in that room. They wanted £40 to upgrade us to the bigger room even though it had said when booking that roll away beds were included. Apparently only when you book the 'right' room. I had to be very persuasive to only pay the £10 it would have cost on hotels.com for the larger room. We ate dinner in the bar and expected much better food. It was very average. Pre-packaged naan bread and bland curry. Breakfast was your standard hotel fare - hot food in a bain marie and cereals. Terrible coffee!

Hotel was OK, but not worth the price - unless you will be using the facilities, which were free to guests. Some refurbishment work going on (didn't disturb at all where we were), but if our room was refurbished, it still looked very tired (room 9). All staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was fine - staff very accommodating, although the coffee was woeful. . Nice setting, by the river. Location is perfect for Kendal. Good parking area.

A three star hotel that punches above its weight. Although the hotel could go with a much needed refurb, it is in a great location with plenty of good facilities. Staff are super helpful and friendly and the bar (with terrace) is very relaxing. Food was good too! Excellent dinner and breakfast has proper sausages!!! Overall a lovely hotel. Yes, there is a busy road nearby, but not too noisy. We stayed in a family room (with cotbed) and it was very spacious. Would definitely stay again.

Nice hotel. Very good central location. My room was good although noisy due to the main road being right next to the hotel at that end. I'm sure the rooms to the other end of the hotel would be much quieter. The gym is small be well equipped and a good facility. Breakfast was fine - a little short on choice compared to what I'd expect for a hotel like this, but this is a relatively minor comment, not a criticism.
