The Copper Kettle
We arrived late in the evening and we're greeted by the land lady, she was prompt, showed us to our rooms, booking in took all of 2 minute, the room i had was big and spacious, had a homely feel.
Breakfast was good, got us ready for the day ahead, i'm planning on visiting cumbria again. Defo will be using the copper kettle again.
The Filthy Kettle
I was surprised when they asked us to pay on arrival but then realised why when I saw the room.
The room was disgustingly filthy. There was mould around the sink and the carpet was sticky. Surfaces were greasy and sticky. Towels had a layer of dust on and when opened were dirty. The mattress had dirty stains on and we slept with our coats on for fear of contracting a disease from the sheets. For £55 I wasn't expecting The Ritz, but a basic level of cleanliness would have been nice. We declined breakfast due to our concerns about basic hygiene but accepted a pot of tea. the teapot had a thick layer of dust on and when we attempted to wipe it, the tissue was covered in grease. This really was the dirtiest place we have ever stayed. We're not snobs either and have roughed it on a few occasions but we would never stay here again.
quirky and quaint
stayed here aug 2016, we had room 1(double with en-suite) overlooking the street, the room was very big and homely if a little dated and tired (which didnt bother us at all), and the bed was large and very comfortable, pam and pete were very attentive and friendly, if you are looking for the ritz then this place wont be for you,but if your looking for a quaint and quirky old building with quaint and quirky fixtures and fittings then this will suit, the meals we had were freshly made and very nice,the location was excellent, all in all we had an enjoyable 3 night stay,, a slight downside would be the noise from the pub next door spilling out onto the street,
Old Fashioned but welcoming!
Could do with a re-vamp but everything was clean and comfortable and Pamela and Peter were very pleasant and helpful.
Great stay will go again
Arived on time service was great made us feel at home.
Free wifi The only let down parking was very limited not there fault mind. A small town but great walks lots of bars and places to eat
If you want to step back in time to a Grannys Attic style 400 year old town building you will love the Copper Kettle.
Very good value for money, homecooked food, friendly caring and attentive owners. Dont expect modern furnishings, it is just a charming olde worde experience. On its doorstep are some very cosy pubs, cafes and restaurants. Ruskins Viewpoint is a mere two minute stroll across the adjacent churchyard, with longer walks optional beyond. One tiny gripe...even the tourist info booklets in the rooms are vintage copies !. Could maybe be updated...but that just added to the vintage feel.!
Old fashioned but fine
Run by a houseproud older couple who clearly are committed to running their business.
Clean, rather old fashioned but ancient historic building. Clean bed and good plentiful breakfast. The couple aren't the most chatty, but both very pleasant and helpful. Ok, it's not the ritz so no crystal chandeliers and marble staircase, but it's cheap and fine for a short stay. There was a lot of noise from the pub next door, but that's not the fault of this guesthouse. I feel some of the reviews on here a bit harsh. We enjoyed it.
This bed and breakfast is old, outdated and needs some TLC
Stayed for one night and would not book this b & b again.
The decor is old, dated and tired. It needs some money spending on the property to bring it up to the standard of other accommodation in Kirby Lonsdale. Packed and left early morning. Would not recommend this b & b much nicer accommodation available.
Enjoyed our stay.
I stayed there with a friend as we went for the 3peak challenge.
We arrived at the hotel at 12:30 am due to very bad traffic but we were still given a warm welcome. Breakfast was served in the room as we had to leave at 5:30am in the morning. The owners were a friendly old couple who makes your stay very pleasant in all possible way. Lovely food available at the ground floor restaurant at a very reasonable price. On the negative side I feel the carpets needs to be replaced. Would definitely stay there if I visit Yorkshire again.
Fabulous hosts and location!
I was a bit wary after reading some of the other reviews about the Copper Kettle but what a little treasure.
The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. Yes the decor is a bit tired and dated but clean and functional and full of character and the location is superb. We stayed in the three bedded room overlooking the street and had a really pleasant stay. I would certainly stay there again.
