Castle Green Hotel opened in December 1997 but the building itself dates back to 1847, when Thompson Bindloss, a Kendal Ironmonger bought the site for £3450. He built the house which today forms the Business and Training Centre and the executive bedrooms. He left the house to his nephew, William Bindloss, who was Kendal’s Mayor six times. When William died, he donated the house to the Borough of Kendal in his will in 1895. The house was sold and the proceeds were used to extend the Town Hall and to build the clock tower, which is a feature of Kendal today.
Between 1949 and 1995 the house was owned the by Electricity Board as their area offices and around 300 local people worked in the building. James and Catherine Alexander, previously owners of the Grange Hotel in Grange-over-Sands, bought the property in 1995 and had the vision to convert and extend it into a perfect hotel for Kendal.
In September 2018 the hotel was bought by the Frank Truman Group and is now managed by Legacy Hotels & Resorts whose portfolio range all over the UK and into southern Spain. The collection of properties all combine the perfect blend of character, comfort and relaxation with great value for money.
