Cannot fault this hotel on anything - the staff were all very friendly and polite, always there if you need anything, the rooms were clean and very nicely decorated (towel swans with rose petals a lovely surprise), the food was phenomenal, perfect location, all in all helped to make our stay a wonderful experience. We were recommended a little walk... More

Thank you for the lovely comments they are much appreciated. Weather wasn't so good at the weekend but I am pleased it didn't deter you from going up to the viewpoint. It is an amazing view from up there. See you again at The Glenburn More

The hotel is conveniently placed around 5 minutes walk from Windermere centre. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. My only issue with our room was the very low water pressure that sadly didn't make for a decent shower. We were on the top floor which I'm sure was the reason but not really an excuse. Our 2...

Great review.. thank you for taking the time to comment. Car parking is usually ok except when someone decides they would like to take two spaces instead of one. Don't know about reversing in through the tunnel could be a bit dodgy .. but we have the matter in hand as we are in the process of making a wider... More

Spent a wonderful weekend at the lake districts even though the weather was outright lousy. The Glenburn however was wonderful. Friendly staff, comfortable and inviting common spaces. Nice bar. Well appointed decor, comfortably furnished,......you get the idea. Needless to say the free wifi was excellent. Breakfast service was fine.

We stayed at The Glenburn very last minute - having decided to spend Easter in the Lakes we struggled to find somewhere that had accommodation at very short notice. Luckily, we found the Glenburn...recently refurbished and looking very smart we took the family room which was itself very spacious, although the bathroom was very small - room enough only for...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review we really appreciate it. Sorry about the wifi it isn't normally as temperamental as it was Easter weekend. I am afraid Windermere isn't the best place in the world for phone signals and broadband. Providers keep promising super fast broadband but unfortunately they are super slow in providing. Nice review... More

The chef is just great....good cooking, nice presentation, decent wine and very good value.Breakfast: the full English is perfectly cooked.

A lovely hotel in a great location, halfway between Windermere and Bowness. Booked a 2 night break directly with the hotel which was very good value. The evening meal was exellent so ate there a second night. The hotel is exceptionally well maintained and the staff are lovely. Rooms are really well appointed. A really lovely break. Thanks!

What a gem The Glenburn Hotel is - it's rare to find such a well presented and cared for hotel, with owners and staff who really look after their guests. The location is ideal, an easy walk into both Windermere and Bowness, yet overlooking woodland and very peaceful at night. The bedrooms are stunning: tastefully decorated, well furnished and spacious.... More
