Stayed here 18/19 October in room 6 .. Loved the room presentation and the spa bath for entertainment value.. The staff were more than helpful and theres nothing better than eye contact and a smile on reception.. Thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Windermere.. Will revisit in the future for sure...

We stayed here from the 14th to 16th of October 2014. This is a well run Hotel and all the staff we met were very helpful and attentive. It is not a new building which just adds to the charm of the place. A really nice Breakfast sets you up the adventures of the day ahead. Many thanks for looking... More

Stayed 28/29 September in room 7 which was a very nice room with four poster bed & spa bath. The hotel is well located and clean with very friendly attentive staff much better than any of the large chain hotels. The breakfast is very good with a huge choice and the bar & lounge area very relaxing with a good... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in August and I cannot find fault. The room was clean, the hard working staff were great and helpful. The breakfast excellent and the restaurant food was delicious both nights - would recommend the lamb shank. A great location. Would definitely book again if ever in the area.

Midway along main Lake Road between Windermere and Bowness on the lake. So was easily walkable between activities at the lake, and connections to train or tour buses in Windermere (though a bit far to drag suitcases). Hotel was quaint, and staff very nice. Food in restaurant was good. However, we were on top floor room, where the toilet would... More

We had stayed at this hotel in April so we knew what to expect. Comfy warm room, excellent breakfast, friendly and professional service and an ideal base to tour the lakes. Try the blueberry scones at The Waterside Coffee Shop near the pier in Ambleside. Grizedale forest for walking, cycling and activities for all. Grasmere - check out the gingerbread... More

Old, renovated guest house. Tiny bedroom but comfy bed and tiny clean en-suite (shower no bath). Up two narrow flights of stairs, ancient key to lock flimsy door. Every word and sound can be heard from the next bedroom. If you want dinner from the 'restaurant' you must book by 3pm and specify what you are having. Our Tika chicken... More

Thank you for your review. I was going to say not my hotel then I realised when the chicken in the tikka was missing. Like me ordering a vegemite sandwich from Australia and not knowing what to expect. I remember the guests from down under very well because I was cooking that night. The guests ordered Chicken Tikka not Tikka... More

We stayed here for two nights on 17th & 18th September in room 18 which was facing the main road. Really nice room and bathroom and room were both spotless. Nice touch were the towels done up like swans on the bed. Only thing that wasn't a real issue was the noise from the early morning traffic when you had... More

My wife and I used this hotel several times, a few years ago, but it changed hands shortly after our last visit. Now, a few years later, we have enjoyed a weekend at the hotel. I am pleased to say that standards certainly have not dropped. The hotel is clean and tidy, the rooms well presented and comfortable. We had... More

Always good to see returning guests at The Glenburn. Love your comments and pleased our standards are as good as the previous owners as he was a hard act to follow and it takes time to achieve a good reputation. Many thanks and look forward to seeing you again. More

Visited the Lakes for a two-day walking holiday in September and chose, again, the delightful Glenburn Hotel in Windermere. The Owners and staff were all very welcoming, and friendly, as usual, and special praise to the lovely black-haired waitress, who is such a treasure, and asset to this hotel. We dined at the hotel on both nights, and the food... More
