Lovely hotel but get your bookings in early

We stayed at the hotel over the weekend. We arrived just after 3pm and were able to check in straight away. The hotel had all the necessary COVID requirements which made you feel safe as soon as you s... more

We are continuously adapting how we operate to try and achieve a 'normal' hotel stay whilst protecting the safety of guests and the hotel team. Feedback of this nature is incredibly useful as it helps us to better understand how the additional controls impact the experience. In light of the current situation and your comments we would recommend guests plan the details of their stay prior to arrival. The Reception team can be contacted by calling 01539 734000 and will be delighted to discuss and assist with this. Oh, and I almost forgot, thank you for the 'Excellent' review! Ben

Thank you for your honest review. We are delighted to have reopened in July having been closed for many months.

Sincere apologies for the problems with breakfast and dinner. I have shared your feedback with the team so they can improve and ensure a better experience for future guests I have noted your positive comments regarding the team and the room along with your 5/5 score for our location which it seems saved us from receiving a lesser overall rating. If you would consider giving us another chance in the future please do contact me directly and I would be delighted to personally oversee the arrangements.

Ben Mayou, Owner at Castle Green Hotel in Kendal, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Thanks for reviewing your stay with us back in October 2019. It is always disappointing to receive a 3/5 review as nobody likes to referred to as 'average'! Some of our rooms are smaller than others but I am pleased to report that we completed the £650k refurbishment of 36 bedrooms, including the introduction of air conditioning during the Covid19 lock down this year. If size is important to future guests I would recommend contacting our friendly reception team prior to arrival to discuss your requirements.
