The Gateway Inn, Kendal
Great place just outside of Kendal, England
A lovely place to stay, just off a main road that goes in to Kendal. Very friendly staff. Convenient also as a base for driving to visit the arts and crafts house, Blackwell.

Really comfortable stay!
Rooms were nicely refurbished and the beds unbelievably comfy. I was a little worried about the proximity to the large roundabout but I was not kept up at all by any traffic noise - perhaps something to do with the really comfy beds! Overall a good stay.

Great Place to Stay
This was a great place to stay, the staff were friendly and the food was excellent. The room was very nice, the only let down was the cleanliness, when we went downstairs for dinner the seats hadn't been cleaned and there were old pea's on the seats and the tables hadn't been cleaned. We ended up sitting outside which was really nice.

Not so good
I booked and paid for a large double but was put up in the small topfloor room as pictured in the cheaper rate. Breakfast doesn't start until 8, not helpful when work starts at 10 past. The gentleman on reception was helpful and after inquiring said the chef would do breakfast if he was there in time, other than that there would be cerial etc available. There was a man in chefs checks around at 7:15, I got 2 words off him "good morning"! in 15 minutes I wasn't offered so much as a tea or coffee so went back to my room and got the coffee to take to work. It wasn't an amazing experience, I won't rush back
