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 …
... a bit as you had now woken up, and then finally, finally starting to drift off again, she would then make it known in her own delightful way that she needed to go again. Needless to say, driving off in the morning, we were equally, if not more tired, then we would have been had we not just driven through the night. Still on the bright side, Murray slept all the way to Skye, and we got to see the amazing Scottish glens in all their snow-capped, mist-filled ...
... of it. We ordered our beer and lunch at the counter and grabbed a table under the stairwell. Lunch showed up nice and warm and it was a comfort after all the cold for the day. The sandwich I got was a ham and cheese which was pressed shut around the edges to keep all the warm food inside when it was toasted. Logan had a baked potato with chili and cheese on top. Delicious!
After lunch we went back out and walked around the area where the pub was. ...
... nothing that would cause us to cancel our plans for the weekend, overcast during the day and showers in the evening. The weather looked promising when we left the apartment and were excited about the day. We drove up the M6 and managed to not hit any traffic on the way up (AMAZING). After a couple of hours, we took the exit to the lake district and headed down to Lake Windermere.
The lake was a beautiful sight. There was ...

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.
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.
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.
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.
