We came across this hotel when walking from our B&B into Bowness. At first glance we thought it was a resident's only eating place, but luckily the menu drew us in. What a very good choice we made. The food was excellent, served in a lovely little restaurant. We were made to feel so welcome by the staff and owner... More

We stayed at The Glenburn for 2 nights on the way to a shooting competition in Scotland and its a really nice hotel. We stayed in Room 17 and it was perfectly clean and more than adequate despite the bathroom being small it was really comfortable. Breakfast does not start until 8.30 which is far too late for most people... More

We booked the cottage attached to this hotel, for grandparents, parents and small children, and found it ideal for our stay. It was roomy, with two double bedrooms, including one with an en-suite, a smaller bedroom with bunk beds, lounge with dining area, kitchen and another bathroom. It was well furnished and well-equipped for self-catering. The situation was fine, with... More

We arrived late at night after a 3 hour ride from Glasgow. The staff stayed at the desk to receive us and show us to the cottage. The cottage is absolutely perfect for a small family (4-6 people). The property is clean (very) and very comfortable. Parking is available onsite which is very nice. There are two beautiful towns within... More

Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Glenburn, very reasonably priced for Bowness/Windermere area and only a short walk down into Bowness or up into Windermere. The food was nice, the staff very friendly and welcoming and we really enjoyed our stay. We took full advantage of the spar passes and that was a welcome bonus, only a 10 minute... More

The Glenburn Hotel is a lovely boutique hotel with old world charm that welcomes one to the heart of the Lake District. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Our rooms, which were on the 2nd floor, were immaculate and very comfortable. The breakfast, with the wonderful Cumbria sausages, was very tasty and filling. My only complaint was that if your...

Thank you for your lovely review. I am surprised there was no one to help with your luggage as we always offer to help even if it is with hand luggage but I apologise if no one offered. I understand when travelling you have lots of luggage and it must be difficult packing and unpacking every couple of days and... More

My husband and I spent 7 nights at this beautiful hotel. The service and food was of a very high standard, in particular our dinner each evening. We found the staff most helpful and welcoming at all times.The location was ideal. For us it was the perfect holiday.
