I would highly recommend the green gables to anyone visiting the lake district for business or pleasure. ..... I came across the website by chance and enquired about availability, the response was very quick and when i arrived i wasn't disappointed. Carole, Alex and Gillian were very friendly and i felt immediately at home. The en suite room i had... More

From previous reviews and the by the pictures on the website we thought we had found a lovely little gem in the Lake District however when we arrived our opinions had changed unfortunately for the worse. Not only did the owner take quite a while to answer the door but when he did he wasn't particularly well presented. Our first... More

The reviewer seems to be under the impression that Guest House and B & B owners sit behind their front doors eagerly awaiting their guests' arrival. We are sorry to disappoint but in our case this is not true. We may be doing other things when the doorbell rings, we may even be using the bathroom, and therefore it may... More

Stayed in 10 B&Bs on trip around Scotland and North of England. This was by far the worst. TV didn't (that didn't worry me), tiny room, no parking for car. Building need some money spent on it. I agree breakfast good and staff very friendly but breakfast too late at 8.30 start.

We recently spent 3 weeks in the UK and stayed at 8 different B&Bs. Luckily this was only a one night stay. This by far was the poorest choice. As mentioned in other reviews, the place not only needs updating, but also needs a good cleaning! We had an ensuite room on the top floor. The shower had a non-working... More

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

atchumak, Owner at Green Gables Guest House, responded to this review

The first problems we have with this review is the time delay between the stay and the review. This has resulted in the reviewer not remembering with any degree of accuracy whether they stayed in October or November. Nothing was reported at the time sa any problems that existed could be addressed. We plead guilty to painting our windows -... More
