... up! I read another one the following few days called, “The Sanctus,” that I found par and look forward to a few suggestions I just received. I am excited to share time with Nicolette and pass Fifty Shades onto her, no bad intentions whatsoever. Mwahahahahah! Gary has gifted me with The revised uncut version of “The Stand,” which I attempted to turn down because of the bulk and weight but he insisted. I squeezed it in. I will definitely enjoy the book if I ...

Ice creams sitting on the benches revived us a little, to be joined by Andy until the place closed up at 6.30pm - Guy disappointed we didn't have time for tennis - another day perhaps! We were all pooped so bought a few bits from Tesco Express (almost as exciting as the French supermarkets!) and waved Sal and Sam off - sadly having to return to work - before a quiet evening in. ...

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.
