HOMEMADE TOO!! he'd just made a friend for life, they... More

My husband and I stayed over the Easter bank holiday weekend 3rd to 6th April, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was perfect and the attention to detail with the personal touches like fresh cut flowers, home baked biscuits and cakes, all complimentary, were top notch. The breakfasts were lovely and plentiful. We would highly recommend the Glenville... More

I had a two night break away here and was amazed from start to finish. The room was amazing, the staff were welcoming and the breakfast was faultless. We couldn't have asked for anything else. Thankyou.

Just returned from a three night stay (27th-30th March) at this fabulous bed and breakfast. I have to say that it could put most 4/5 star hotels to shame. Our room was lovely, very spacious and was spotlessly clean with lots of little extras (fresh flowers, homemade cookies, fresh milk, lemon water). The choice at breakfast was exceptional and freshly... More

In one word, outstanding. I can add others, attention to detail and generosity, cleanliness and comfort. I won't go on, I'll enjoy the bouquet of flowers that were a complete surprise as part of our package. By the way, breakfast was as good as any 4/5* hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights on 12th and 13th March. From the moment we entered the hotel we felt the warm friendly atmosphere. Our room was immaculate and as other guests have commented, complimentary bouquet of flowers, wine, sherry, chocolates and tickets for a boat trip on the lake. We travel quite a lot in various countries and we... More
