Castle Green Hotel Kendal Review

Castle Green Hotel Kendal

Castle Green located in the heart of Kendal, near Lake District.  The hotels in Lakes District are very expensive but with the similar price ranges, you can get a good quality hotel at Castle Green at Kendal, just an hour drive from the Lake Districts. We actually wanted to book a hotel in Lake District but found out the beds provided are bunk beds and the price is over SGD 200.  (What? Paid for SGD 200 and stay at bunk bed, no way! ) So we choose Castle Green Hotel at Kendal, which turn out to be a wonderful choice!

After visiting Lake District in the late afternoon, we drove for an hour to reach Castle Green, Kendal.

Entrance to Castle Green Hotel in Kendal

Check in Hotel from the back door

After unloading your luggage, you can drive to the front and park at the parking area.  Staff at check in counter is super nice and friendly!  I asked if there is a trolley as I have two big & a small suitcases to handle.  She told me there is no trolley but there is porter services.  But I think  it was a busy day and porters can’t be contactable so the front desk lady with her heels helped me to carry two huge suitcases, each about 20 kg.  I wanted to stop her but she insist and before I can do anything, my two suitcases were already in the room!  After that I wanted to tip her but she refused as she is not really a porter.  I only could thank her repeatedly.

Breakfast Area at Castle Green Hotel in Kendal

Castle Green Hotel Kendal

The breakfast area is very big but not many guest as yet because I was very early. I spotted a group of Japanese “obasan”/middle age ladies were occupying  a long table, I believe they were touring in a group. I did not spot any other Asian, such as Chinese & Korean but yesterday at the Lake Districts tourist spot, I saw many Chinese & Korean.

The restaurant for breakfast is nicely decorated with cosy lighting, painting and other little details.

We choose to squeeze to a small table meant for two people because of the garden view

Setting at the table, the butter is served at your table, you don’t need to pick them up from the smorgasbord.

Exploring Around Castle Green

The environment in Castle Green is very suitable for people who would like to get away from the hustle bustle of city life. It is ideal for wedding too. Do check out their beautiful garden and well trimmed lawn. Simply awesome.  This is one of the best hotel I have stayed during my 12 days tour in UK!
