Welcome to the Riverside Hotel in Kendal
Value for money, friendly staff and great food.
We are sorry to announce that following the effects of storm Desmond our guest lift will be out of action for the next few weeks. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience and let us know if this will have serious impact on your stay with us.
The Riverside Hotel, a converted 18th century tannery set on five floors, is situated on the banks of the River Kent in Kendal beneath the ruins of the town’s 12th century castle. A short walk away is the centre of this famous Lake District market town with its bustling shops, galleries and museums. It’s also close to the train and bus station, is only a 20 minute drive from Lake Windermere and convenient for all the must-see Lake District attractions. See our ‘things to do in the area’.

The hotel has 58 ensuite bedrooms including two small suites. A recent renovation has seen 8 'fur-free' bedrooms added to compliment our existing 50 pet-friendly rooms. Our two junior suites vary in style - 'Kendal Castle’ is made up of a bedroom with a separate living area where you can work, watch a 32" TV and dine via room service. The Bellingham Suite offers the same features but the bedroom and living area is combined; this room also benefits from a large, modern bathroom. All the bedrooms are spacious, most have river views and include a hospitality tray with drinks and biscuits, a television with Freeview, free WiFi, direct dial telephone, hairdryer and ironing facilities.
