We recently stayed at the Green Gables for one night bed and breakfast. We felt check-in was quite late at 4:00 particularly as check out is 10:00. We stayed in room 1 so are only able to base our review on this room and communal areas. The reception and bar areas would benefit from modernisation, these areas felt quite dated.... More

My sister and I stayed in room 7 on the very top floor of the house. It is a twin room with own bathroom on landing outside bedroom. House full of guests but upstairs no noise could be heard. Great stay with wonderful hostesses. Breakfast was huge and very tasty. Lots of laughter and a happy house. Will definitely come... More

We stayed here as two couples and a single during Summer. We found it perfectly adequate and fairly priced, although the beds were not the most comfortable to sleep on and the rooms were quite "cosy". However, it was everything we were looking for and the breakfast was as good as anything you get at English B&Bs, so I would... More

When we arrived at Green Gables, it was at first hard to raise the owner, who eventually arrived shouting "ok!ok! I'm coming". We were not sure if he was joking or not. Were eventually shown to our room, which looked as if it needed a makeover. Some bits of wallpaper peeling, furniture rickety. One of our hand towels had a... More

We were looking forward to staying at this B and B after seeing all the excellent reviews on trip advisor. The main issues were with our room. The window was painted open so it did not close. Bearing in mind we were staying in October/November this was quite an issue! The bathroom door did not close, which was a particular... More

This was another great find. We stumbled into Windermere with no booking and found one of the last rooms in the town. Brilliant find! Very comfortable room, separate exclusive bathroom on the top floor. It was a bit warm through the night but everything about this place was lovely. Our hosts were terrific very knowledgable. The breakfast was great.

From the numerous places my wife & I have "B&B'd", Green Gables is the one B&B we have returned to regularly over the past 7 years. If you are an "open personality" you will find the rapport with the staff as being second to none, from a friendly greeting to "we'll do whatever we can for you if it's a... More

I don't quite relate to the previous review saying there was too much conversation upon arriving. When my Wife and I arrived we were greeted with a Gentleman (I forget his name, I was tired at the time) who paid attention to us and asked us what places we have been to, visiting, where we are from etc. And he...

After having finished the Dales Way, Green Gables was a bit of a let-down to an otherwise wonderful experience. The host who welcomed us was a bit... strange. He tried to make conversation, but we were quite clear that we'd just like to be shown to our room, so after five or so very awkward minutes he said "Right we're... More

Maybe conversation was not what was wanted. Maybe we should have just said “There’s your keys. The room is on the first floor. Have a nice day”. Maybe we should not have tried to find out if the day had gone well. In Britain we say “Have you had a good day?” – this is a question – we don’t... More

We had excellent service at the hotel. Really enjoyed our stay. I recommend this guest house. It is centrally located and the rooms are held in perfect condition. The breakfast was delicious. Very friendly staff.
