We had dinner in the restaurant on the basis of the menu displayed outside. We had a main and dessert from the set menu, both of which were delicious. Friendly and attentive service, and helpful advice on what to visit locally.

Great breakfast, really nice evening meal choices, very homely bar and lounge, good wi fi, free parking and in a great location asy to walk either up or downhill into the two main sopping and eating areas. All you could ak for really, well... More

Myself and my wife decided to try the Glenburn as the reviews were good and we wanted to try this out for ourselves. The service from the minute we walked through the front door, to the minute we left was excellent, we were in room 11 at the top, although there are a few stairs, this was reasonable. The room...

Stayed four nights at the Glenburn, our reason for booking was Location, location and use of Parklands leisure facility for teenage Son. We were greeted warmly and shown round the Glenburn. The hotel itself is in a premium position, a little more toward Windemere than Bowness, good size hotel with nice fresh decoration in hallways and public areas. We stayed... More

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

Can't thank this place enough. I booked this hotel for our honeymoon but with all the stress of a wedding I got our dates wrong I'd booked a week before we could actually go.

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

Thank you for your comments but I do wish you had said something to the young waitress during breakfast and it would have been sorted. Unfortunately everyone did come down together and it was her first breakfast duty. Thank you for being understanding and for not letting it spoil your visit to The Glenburn 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
