Fresh home made biscuits and cake in the entrance lobby which were devine and fresh biscuits in the room. Peter and Jayne also left a birthday card and... More

Just got back from our 2nd visit to Glenville so far this year. There is not a single thing you can fault about this wonderful hotel. The host's Peter and Jayne are lovely and as I have mentioned before on here Jayne's cooking/baking is a delight. Already looking forward to our next visit on Halloween!!

Wow!! What a pleasant surprise-- a bouquet of fresh flowers in every room!!! The room was spacious and charmingly ( is that a word) decorated. Bed was perfect -- firm, yet with a pillow top covering. Updated bath with very nice linens. Breakfast was excellent with wonderful options, like the gingerbread pancakes! A pleasant walk to Windermere city center

Had an absolute perfect 3 day break to this beautiful b&b. The staff were lovely & nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in room 6 which was gorgeous, even better we could hear the stream at the bottom of the garden. The breakfast choices were superb & everything was freshly made. Can't wait to return in the future. Definitely... More

Great location between Windemere & Bowness. Easy walking distance to both villages which we did twice a day to keep the extra calories off. Great welcome by the owner and good breakfasts are a major positive. Room was well appointed, but room no. 1 which is a superior room on the ground floor, is noisy with the comings and goings...

We have just returned home from Glenville House after a two night's stay for my boyfriend's birthday. What a wonderful place it is, we've had a lovely weekend and most of that was due to the fantastic Glenville House where we couldn't ask for more comfort and kindness. The room was beautiful, the breakfast was amazing and all the homemade... More

First impressions were excellent and our hosts were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. They had extensive knowledge of the local area and good places to eat/visit. The room and en-suite were both meticulously clean and were tastefully decorated. A selection of home-made cakes and biscuits were available which is a nice touch as these were delicious!

First impressions were great. There are home made cookies and cake in the hallway for guests to enjoy. The room we booked was tastefully decorated and spotless. The bed was huge and very comfortable with plenty of pillows. An iron and board was provided in the room which is unusual these days. There was a small fridge in the room... More
