We stayed at the hotel at the weekend as our daughter was doing a charity walk . The location is good and there is on site parking which is a real plus The standard of the bedrooms is well worth the 4 stars they have. For me the home made buns and biscuits in your room was a lovely touch... 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

Sometimes you take a chance and hope that everything as advertised on a web site fully delivers. This place does. Location is just right for Windermere and all local amenities and all that the Lake District has to offer. Parking on site. Rooms are top class with all the comforts you need. Breakfast is excellent. You have a choice which... More

Visited glenville for the second time, had a most fantastic two night stay,didn't want to leave. I could not rate it highly enough the little touches that make this wonderful hotel stand out are amazing.

Pete made us feel very welcome, we arrived early and it wasn't a problem. Room was lovely, clean and in a convenient location. If you rely on Wifi, please be patient as it was intermittent. Having said that I enjoyed being away from technology, not to mention a mobile signal! Would deffo recommend to friends and family.

Thank you for you review its good to hear you enjoyed your stay. I 'm sorry that the WiFi and mobile photo signal were intermittent but its due to our location - most accommodation in our area have similar problems. BT are busy trying to improve the service. Hope you revisit us soon :)) regards Jayne & Pete More

The glenville is clean, comfortable and welcoming. A real home from home. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Nice touches include a mini fridge and fresh milk. There were fresh flowers too both in the room and breakfast area. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh with an excellent choice. The location was perfect and easy to find. Would recommend highly.

My partner and I went to the Lake District for a short break staying at Glenville House for three nights. We both really liked it. The décor is tasteful, the room was spacious and the location perfect for touring around. The room had en suite facilities as you would expect nowadays, however there was a separate bath and shower which... More

Our stay was excellent and most enjoyable. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean and the little extras in reception and in the room were lovely. Breakfast was superb. Very well situated and easy to access the Lake and other local amenities. Our hosts were most helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our visit.
