My husband and I literally booked this the night before. We arrived about 7.30pm Friday evening after finishing work and we were more than happy with the room. We had a lovely four poster bed and the room was decorated beautifully. The room was really clean with plenty of tea and coffee facilities. We enjoyed the breakfast on both mornings... More

Down with my wife and son for a few days,and is an ideal base for day trips round cumbria. While the family room was a bit of a squeeze,this is a nice and relaxed hotel. Staff very pleasant,hotel was clean and the breakfast set you up for the day. Hope to be back soon.

This is our 3rd stay at the excellent Glenburn Hotel. I cannot praise it highly enough; all aspects are faultless and exemplary. Staff are all very friendly, cheerful, attentive, and helpful. Rooms are attractively decorated, extremely clean and with lovely ensuites. Food is fantastic, with an amazing choice at breakfast, with cooked dishes done to perfection, and delicious evening meals.... More

The cottage is at the back of the property - very private and quiet. The master bedroom has a very impressive ensuite (great shower) with the second bedroom and bunk room sharing the main bathroom. The guidance from the hotel is that the bunk room is suitable for one adult or two children and this is correct. It would be... More

Thank you for your review and I am so pleased you had a lovely time in the Cottage. It is ideal for families and of course having the choice of dining in the hotel. The weather was lovely too which makes a great difference. I hope you will visit us again in the future More

Had another lovely stay at the Glenburn, in our favourite room 13. Only minor grumble mattress was a bit soft and had a bit of roll together, but more down to our personal preference and maybe the weight of my OH. However, warm welcome, great service and lovely food. Can't ask for anything more. See you next year.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at the Glenburn. Room 13 is always the last 4 poster room to sell, in fact, I have considered changing the number. There are still a lot of superstitious people out there. You obviously had a lovely time at The Glenburn and it is always nice to... More

We visited last October and decided to come back again in the warmer months (June) for a brief walking holiday. Once again, the staff (same staff as before) were incredibly warm, friendly, helpful, and welcoming throughout our two-day stay. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious, with a huge choice, and were cooked to perfection on both days. The vegetarian breakfast with... More

Lovely review thank you. It is always nice to see guests returning to The Glenburn. The evening dinners are beginning to gain a good reputation and more guests are dining with us.

Thank you for this review. I have to say this was a strange booking from the offset. Booked through our secure online booking system which automatically sends out confirmation of a booking.

Friendly and helpful staff. Good food served in the restaurant. Comfortable rooms. The only down side was the lack of water pressure for the shower. Plenty of off road parking available. Central location for Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere.
