Good Hotel Guide Review

Family owned and family run, the Kennedys’ ‘excellent’ luxury B&B is in an Edwardian country house overlooking Lake Windermere. Matriarch Diana Kennedy runs the place, while daughters Sheena and Joanna are manager and chef. ‘They are lovely owners,’ says a reader this year. The elegant public rooms have deep, comfy sofas; master bedrooms on the first floor are particularly spacious. In all bedrooms expect Egyptian cotton sheets, a decanter of sherry, a Roberts radio, fluffy towels and luxury toiletries. On arrival, complimentary afternoon tea, with warm scones and fresh cream, may be taken on the terrace in fine weather; in the evening, guests choosing to eat in may choose from a home-made soup of the day and a fine selection of platters (deep-fried sole goujons and potted Morecambe Bay shrimp on the fish platter; cheeses, grilled vegetables, and twice baked cheese souffle for vegetarians). There is much choice at breakfast, including Finnan haddock and pan-fried haloumi; granola, yogurt and marmalade are all home made. Fitness-minded guests have complimentary access to local gym and pool facilities. (Peter Hutchinson)

Guest comments

'Spacious lounges combined with excellent service make this a must in the Lake District. Being a single guest does not mean a downgrade; in a single room one still gets full treatment. Food is good. Breakfast has wide choice, dinner has a menu changing monthly, but with specials changed every day. All delicious. A lovely, friendly atmosphere. ' - Dorothy Brining - August, 2014
'Another visit to our old favourite. Our room on the second floor was spacious, with a grand view over Windermere. The bathroom was very small with just a shower. Our only problem was with the sloping roof - it was awfully easy to bash the head! Having stayed there for several years now, I can recognize a number of staff -- a good sign. ' - Jill Bennett - April, 2014
