Had a super twixmas break here in December. Just a relaxing couple of nights with friends after a very busy time leading up to the festivities. Had a great B&B deal with one evening dinner and prosecco included. Beautiful room at the rear of the building; very quiet and super breakfast and dinner. Staff very friendly and helpful. Thanks again.

We booked a 2 night stay including breakfast last weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. On arrival I was surprised that the lady on reception seemed a little surly & wasn't particularly welcoming as she hardly looked up from her desk. We asked about eating in the restaurant that evening & we booked a table. We were given a...

Thank you for taking the time to write this lengthy review.. Lots of good comments... Apologies for the surly lady behind the desk .. not like me to be surly I am usually quite bubbly with a smile and I always stand up to greet my guests ..it would be rude not too after 35 years behind the desk .....

We have just returned from our first stay in Windermere. We couldn't have picked a better hotel. Small, friendly and beautifully kept - we felt really at home. Car park is through a narrow tunnel but space for everyone. We were in Room 4 a four poster room which was beautifully decorated, clean and warm after a cold days walking!...

A lovely hotel in a great location. Couldn't fault the hotel or rooms. The staff were fantastic and friendly even with some obviously difficult guests. The spa/pool was fantastic and relaxing. Only problem was one guest/family waking us up at 5am banging on doors and continuing to do so throughout the morning. The staff did sort this although when we...

Loved this hotel. Fabulous ambience within it and the location is spot on! Close to the beautiful lake a short walk away and as close to Windermere town in the opposite direction. Breakfast is amazing - all the staff are so friendly and helpful! The proprietors are great and ensure your stay at their hotel lacks for nothing!!! Would highly...

Just back from a lovely say at this hotel. We stayed in room 3 which is one of the four poster rooms. The room was lovely, it was well decorated and was very clean. It has a large bathroom with a bath and overhead rain shower. We ate in the hotel on the Friday night and we could not fault...

Lovely stay, fantastic location within easy walking distance of Windermere and Bowness. Evening meal had to be pre-ordered but the freshly cooked food was delicious. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and just what was needed before our journey home. Rooms were clean and the bed very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again

Booked in at the Glenburn via Booking.com and was not disappointed. We got a great last minute deal and the location is great, right in the middle of Windermere and Bowness. Breakfast was good, with a great selection on offer. Would stay here again if I was visiting the area.

Lovely stay, good location. One negative, when paying £80+ for a pretty small room it's a bit disappointing breakfast wasn't included. Apart from that though staff were polite and the room was nice and clean.

Happy New Year and thank you for the comments. If the guest had booked direct or through our own website breakfast would have been included in the price. For all future potential guests please call us direct or book on the Glenburn's own Website and we will all benefit. Thank you hopefully we will see you again.

Me and my husband had one night here. Lovely welcoming staff. I loved the decor throughout the hotel. The standard room was more than adequate for our needs. The breakfast was one of the nicest I've had. We will definitely make a return visit. The owner was very kind and even ran us to the station 😊. Thank you for...
