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.

Was warmly welcomed by Alex and shown to a very comfortable room. Breakfast the following morning was extremely good and it was so nice for me to... More

Stayed one night to attend a wedding in the lakes. Greeted by the owners who were very friendly, checked us in and showed us to our room. Nice room with an ensuite, very comfy bed! Very close to the local shops and cafes and managed a short wander around before we went to our wedding. Very good location. Breakfast in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Green Gables we have a very simple philosophy - clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. We do not provide all the latest gizmos and gadgetry. Nor do we provide "boutique" style toiletries or membership to gyms or spas. If you really want these then please ask at the time of booking and we will adjust the price accordingly. We do not have a long list of rules and regulations and you will find us more like a "home from home" than a stuffy and strict place to stay. ... more   less
