This hotel is centrally located. The staff are friendly, welcoming and extremely hard working. There is no lift in the hotel. However we were offered assistance with our luggage. The room was lovely and warm when we arrived. Breakfast was great too. The hotel is an ideal location for exploring the many walks, restaurants and facilities of both Windermere and... More

surprise stop to treat the wife on way back home, was attracted to the prospect of a four poster bed. Also offered a spa bath with rain fall shower, although this was all crambed into a very small bathroom. Think I let he notion and romance of it confuse reality. Hotel wasn't exactly to the standard of the photo's, but... More

Thank you for your review. The building is very old and unfortunately with that comes the creaks and groans of the structure. We are hoping to give the old place a facelift this year but I think its in pretty good shape for its age most people comment on how lovely it is and don't want us to change. Some... More

Located about half way between Windermere and Bowness townships the Glenburn is probably similar to a lot of accommodation in this area. The room we had was lovely with a four poster bed and a spa bath in a good sized bathroom. Staff were very helpful and had taken notice of our gluten free request when booking and we didn't... More

Thank you for choosing The Glenburn for your visit to the Lake District... great review. Really love night's when residents are all congregated in the lounge after dinner chatting and laughing, it was such a good atmosphere.. and the Amaretto was going down well too.
