29th September – Monday York to Kendal
Left York by 8am to avoid the traffic. Travelled through Harrogate, which is a large town. Took lots of photos, the countryside is wonderful. We stopped at Skipton for a break & I saw signs to Settle & hoped that maybe we went through there but we didn't. Continued on through …
Had a big sleep. Was going to do a short walk but when we were about to start the rain came pouring in. Arun and I decided to stay at the hostel while Pete went around Rydal and Grasmere. (Although called the Lakes District, the area only has one "lake" — Brassenthwaite.) We had pumpkin soup and a sandwich for lunch when the weather improved. Took a short walk to Grasmere for some photos. There was snow on the hill-peaks but was not too cold. Peter ...
... was being freshly carved in front of us, and tasted and was as crispy as Auntie Fong's. Began long drive to Grasmere. Started raining. Stopped briefly for petrol at Newcastle Under Lyme. Saw Aston Villa FC's stadium and Birmingham city centre from the motorway, as well as the lights of Manchester and Liverpool. Had a very good Pad Thai for dinner. Saw the new James Bond at the local ...
... of being late especially where aviation is concerned, would be a little rattled by the little woman at our service and should by default be reassuring us that we will catch the flight no matter what, I tried to go into the bedroom to reassure her. It was too late. Stress had hit her face like a wet gibbon and all I could do was match that with a moan about the transporter woman who had brought so much cheer to our doorstep. We arrived at Malc and Ce's met by ...
... The only disappointment for me was the fact that I noticed a large amount of the products on sale were not necessarily sourced locally and perhaps for example the jams and chutneys or chocolates and snacks on offer could have been supplied from businesses a little more Cumbrian .
Every time I visit the Lake District I seem to find more and more places that I want to go that I ‘m going to have to start compiling a list to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Castle Green Hotel Kendal
This hotel is overated. I came back from a recent stay, impressed by the brochure boasting 14 acres of gardens. No gardens really just grass sloping upto the hotel which you can't walk on anyway because its too steep! Dinner was fabulous, breakfast was not, over processed and over cooked. Service was good although we did receive a bit of a frosty welcome at reception. Our room was pretty standard more like a travel lodge than a 3* hotel. So very disapointed really would not recommend staying here go to one of the nicer hotels in Bowness/Windermere much more luxuroius!!
Excellent base for exploring the Lakes
I found the hotel to be an excellent base for exploring the Lakes.
About 9 miles to Windermere and not too far from the town centre of Kendal either just a 5 minute drive.
The actual hotel facilities were good, breakfast was excellent a good selection to choose from.
We ate in Alexanders twice but I didnt enjoy the food, I have eaten better for less money.
I used to pool and the gym which were both excellent.
The room was clean and had all the basic amenities you needed.
Overall I would stay here again if I return to the Lakes.
Wedding one nighter
My wife and i stayed for a night over the May Day Bank holiday weekend for a friends wedding. I was going to give the hotel a 3* rating in my review but have gone for 4* as it would have been unfair to the staff.
Yes, as other reviews the rooms are small (not even a bath). I would say a travel inn room is larger. It was however spotless. Our room was overlooking the rear of the hotel so always request a room on the front for a view. One little moan was the unpredictability of the hot water.
The staff are a credit to the hotel. I cannot speak highly enough of them.
If you are thinking of booking a wedding then it is certainly a good location and the function room was well presented.
Food - had lunch in the Pub which was as good as any. Dinner at the wedding which was fantastic plenty of it. Breakfast was good too.
We didnt get time to go in the pool.
To summarise its not a bad hotel but it is a little pricey on the room rates for what you get.
I hurried over to the Lakes, I decided to stay in Kendal for a few days, I was thus presented with three nights in the castle green hotel.
The room was more than clean, plenty of hot water and towels, heating controls, iron, phone, tv, etc... The room was spacious. The hotel boasted a pool that was clean, safe and steam room that all were in a clean condition. The Gym next to the pool was just perfect , without the need to wear all the latest fashion gear I felt at ease.
The food was of a good quality, the staff were very helpfull and indeed I was very pleased to hear "Good mornin " from each staff member I passed as I left the room each day.
The grounds were large, well kept and peacefull, A new eating area is about to open in febuary and looks very modern.
I wondered on the 25th January what was in store for Burns night, alas, Burns night seems to be unheard of.
All in all, a very enjoyable stay, I will be back..
Just stayed at the Castle for a long weekend after reading earlier reviews on Tripadvisor. I agree with all the other reviews apart from the critisism of room size and food from one reviewer - I found no fault here and the room upgrade on the last night was outstanding. Well worth the extra £20 each.
If I was going to be VERY picky, the steam room alongside the pool was a bit small and overcrowded, and parking when there are weddings on was frustrating but this didn't drop the 5/5 rating.
A pleasant hotel situated in lovely gardens. The hotel is deserved of its 3 star rating and very close to a 4 star. Staff all very friendly and polite. Room was clean although somehwhat on the small side with a lovely view of the car park, so be sure to request a view of the gardens. The restaurant food was fair, although not astounding. You can only choose 2 or 3 courses from a limited menu. However the food is well presented and tasted fine. ** However Beware ** This hotel caters for a lot of weddings and many of the guests spill over in to the hotel bar which is rather small. All in all though we enjoyed our short stay.
stayed one night sunday 22nd august, lovely rooms , staff very friendly and efficient, food in restaurant was excellant both dinner and breakfast.will definately be staying there again soon
What a lovely gift! Fabulous setting, friendly staff and fabulous food! Will definately be going back even if we have to pay for ourselves this time!
Stayed for just the one night for ?66 for the room including dinner & breakfast for two. Due to the cheap price, was not expecting anything special for the 3 course evening meal but was pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful, especially the fillet beef & the service was friendly & efficient. I will definitely be visiting again.
We stayed one night at the Best Western Castle Green. We stayed in a lovely room overlooking the gardens. The service was second to none, very friendly and so personal, we really felt we were treated as guests. The food was great, lovely location, would recommend.
