Stayed for one night only pity it wasn't for longer ! Lovely place, decorated really nice and nice little extras like biscuits in room and water and milk in fridge. Great selection for breakfast and cooked breakfast was great, really hot and tasty. Location great for walking to Bowness or Winderemere only approximately 10 mins walk. Will definitely stay here...

We stayed at the Glenville on the penultimate weekend in September for a mother-daughter night away. It was lovely! I'd seen the near-perfect reviews on TripAdvisor before I booked, and was instantly hooked by the prospect of fresh biscuits and cake upon arrival... I wasn't disappointed. The owners were pleasant, chatty and welcoming, the biscuits were AMAZING - there was... More

My wife and I stayed in this guest house for two days this week. The hosts were very warm and friendly and the who ambiance of the hotel was lovely.

We've just had an amazing stay at this little gem of a hotel. The owners were a truly delightful couple. They welcomed us in even though we were before the check-in time. We were shown to our superior room (room 3) it was more than we could have hope for. It was spacious, beautifully decorated, had tea and coffee making... More

We just came back for our one nite stay and what can I say all the amazing reviews are correct! This was the cleanest B&B I've stayed in, I mean really clean... Lovely rooms, spotless bathroom and lovely decor. Perfect location, gorgeous breakfast and lovely welcoming owners. What more could we ask for? We will be recommending to everyone !... More

This B and B was outstanding, every aspect was brilliant. We were greeted as we arrived, we got into our room 3 hours before check-in which was a great bonus, we had our cases carried for us and they showed us to our lovely room promptly.

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.

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
