Decor may be a little dated but the hotel is very good. Rooms are cleaned every day are are very comfortable. Breakfast is excellent, with everything from fresh fruit, cereal, juice, tea, coffee and an excellent full English. Staff are very friendly and always willing to give advice on places to visit and things to do. We had a room... More

We stayed at Glencree over the Easter bank holiday weekend. The B&B is conveniently located between Windermere and Bowness and you can easily walk to both places. We arrived there on Thursday and were given one of the rooms overlooking the little river (it was pleasantly quiet during the night). The room was impeccably clean and comfortable. Breakfast was varied... More

Booked to stay at Glencree after it was recommended to us. B&B is on the main road between Windermere and Bowness, but we found it to be quiet during the night and very well placed for visiting the area. Room was very clean with a comfortable bed and amazing hot fast shower. Excellent breakfast - and plenty of it. Hosts... More

Shower was very... More

We stayed for 2 nights in November as we had already booked to go on Boxing Day for 2 nights so we thought we would check it out very nice place and the owners welcoming with a good hearty breakfast. A stream runs below the house which is lovely. We are very much looking forward to going back.

Lovely pleasant hotel with very friendly hosts. Great breakfast and ideally suited between Bowness and Windermere. Very interested to see you are enjoying your stay and helpful with tourist advice. Very clean room with a pretty view of the woods and stream.

My husband and I have just returned from a fab stay at Glencree. It is ideally situated between Windermere and Bowness and is easy to walk either way. The room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was excellent. A lot of information on the surrounding area, walks, transport, etc was given by Kim and this was also really appreciated. Would...

Lovely b&b, very polite hosts, happy to provide you with tourist information! We had a lovely big room over looking stream, very clean and comfortable. Breakfasts nice also. Couldn't fault this little gem! Fab location, rooms a little dated, but hey didn't bother us it was comfortable and spotlessly clean!! Loved the stream running alongside the b&b! Beautiful

well presented home and comfortable bedroom with excellent choice of breakfast and nicely served to order. Owner had good knowledge of the area and gave helpful touring advice. Location perfect to see the lakes and a short walk to various pubs all providing local beers on draft and bottle.

We stayed at Glencree for 2 nights our room was very comfortable , breakfast was very enjoyable. The drive suggested by our host at Glencree was absolutely terrific across the Honister pass via Keswick and Grasmere. We ended a great day with a delicious meal and local ale at the Troutbeck hotel.
