we stayed for 4 nights whilst exploring the area. It was so clean, the beds were VERY comfortable and Kathy went out of her way to ensure our stay was enjoyable. I had vegetarian breakfast with nut free cereal, my partner had full english which he said was excellent. Would definitely stay again, looking forward to seeing the finished refurb... More

In August I stayed at Glenfield Guest House for 3 nights. My room (St.Bees) was spotlessly clean, spacious, bright and airy with lots of thoughtful extras such as the flowers, biscuits, and bottled water. I understand the new owner, Mrs King, took over very recently and is striving to make her BnB the very best in Whitehaven. She provides lovely... More

Thank you for your kind comments. Not sure I can ever be 'the best' as there are already one or two superb establishments in Whitehaven, but my aim is certainly to be amongst the best. Still got a long way to go though, as ongoing refurbishments will probably take another 12 months to complete, but your comments are very much... More

We stayed at Glenfield Guest House for 2 nights on 31/7/15 - 1/8/15. It is very well placed for the lakes which was the purpose of our visit. We received a very warm welcome from the owner Kathy. Our room was not quite ready upon our arrival however, this was not a problem. Kathy made us a lovely cup of... More

An excellent guesthouse that has been decorated tastefully by the current owner. I stayed in a room that had very pretty bird wallpaper and embroidered bedding - I have similar bird wallpaper in my own bedroom so I felt very at home! Little details like the fresh posies of flowers, toiletries, biscuits and a hairdryer are nice. The place is... More

Thank you for your feedback. I feel it is an honest and fair appraisal of this mammoth work-in-progress. It will take many more months to reach perfection and I am delighted that my guests appreciate and understand that there is still much work to do. Constructive comments, suggestions - yes and criticism - are all welcomed so I can ensure... More

A chance discovery! I was interested in the Coast to Coast route (though not participating in it) and someone mentioned Whitehaven as a good location. The hotel is under new ownership and (according to one of the regulars who we met in the dining room) is undergoing a much needed transformation. The public areas and bedrooms are not yet completely... More

A warm and friendly operation and if you are after a personal service you could not get a better place to stay. Your attentive host ensures your stay is comfortable and welcoming. The best part of your stay is the food which your host cooks in house and is not your normal hotel menu. Yes the rooms need a little... More

Kathy is very welcoming to her new adventure. A gifted host, whose previous experience of event catering, is creating a very pleasant atmosphere. The food, home-made, is wonderful and as a long-stayer I am very pleased to be a visitor. Parking is good and the situation excellent for a quick morning get-away. Good Wi-Fi link.

Kathy (the owner) only took over last week & has started on a programme of extensive renovation/redecoration. When complete, the building has the potential to become quite magnificent! Warm, quiet room, excellent full English breakfast (& proper coffee, a bit like TS Eliot measuring life by coffee spoons, I rank hotels breakfasts by the quality of the coffee; this was... More
