Just stayed for 2 nights at Glenville House and it's one of the best b & bs we have been in. I can only agree with the many previous positive comments. It is spotlessly clean and our bed was very comfortable, the bed linen and towels were of high quality and extra little touches much appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate to... More

We have stayed in quite a few establishments over the years including 5* hotels. We have never received a breakfast range as good as provided by Glenville. Top quality food prepared and presented with a smile and friendly words. Take care with the plates - they are very warm (again something that is lacking in most establishments). The bed was... More

I have just recently come back from four nights in Windermere with my fiance for his birthday and Glenville is where we stayed. Beautiful b&b, our room was spotless and the bed was huge and comfy. The staff were lovely and pleasant to talk to. Will definitely return at some point.

Glenville House is on Lake Road, Windermere - the perfect location for a break in the Lakes. Our 'superior' room was beautifully decorated, large and very comfortable, with a massive bed and plenty of storage space. There were lovely fresh flowers in the room, a carafe of sherry was kept topped up, as was the container of delicious home made... More

Pete and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry you did not think our en-suite lived up to your expectations - We took over the B&B in May 2014 and plan over the next two years to upgrade all our en-suites and bedrooms. In the mean time we look forward to welcoming you back... More

We visited this stunning guest house for my birthday weekend. The welcome we received was warm and friendly. Our room was beautifully decorated and had all we needed for a very comfortable stay. The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the small touches (like fresh milk and iced water in the fridge) made us feel right at home. The main reason... More

We arrived on Friday 18th July for a 2 night stay and were 2 hours early for check in. We asked Jane if we could leave the car and go for a walk until check in, to which she said it was fine to check in as the rooms were ready, which was a relief after a 7 hour drive.... More
