Families are catered for and full facilities are available for babies and children at Riverside Hotel, which is located in the centre of Kendal.

Riverside offers a children’s menu, high chairs, cots and baby listening monitors. We are also more than happy to keep items in the kitchen fridge and to sterilise bottles and heat up baby food. We do our best to make children welcome.

Road and rail access to our hotel could not be easier, with also easy access to the whole south lakes area for those who would like to explore. Then with the rest of Cumbria and Lakeland only on the doorstep, many visitors enjoy taking advantage of one of our bargain break packages for a short break.
