After a horrendous experience at another nearby B&B, I managed to get a room for the night at Glenfield. For the price of £65 for a single person, I honestly expected more. While the room and bed were comfortable, breakfast was average and I even had to ask for toast, receiving just 1 slice. I wasn't asked if I required... More

Two of us stayed here in October 2013 when cycling the Coast 2 Coast route. We had a great night's sleep in a lovely twin room. The lounge looked very relaxing although we didn't use it much - I would have liked to stay longer in fact. The landlady was very helpful with good advice for meals, breakfast at 7am... More

We stayed one night in Whitehaven but our time at the Glenfield was great. The room was clean and tidy, with a good bed and all the usual amenities (hairdryer, television, kettle, shampoo). Breakfast the following morning was really good and Margaret made us feel very welcome.

Andrew gave us a printout of places to eat in the... More

Thanks to Andrew and Margaret for making my stay so warm and welcoming. Added bonus was the great evening meals on offer. Great for a lone female business traveller. Hope to see you again sometime -c-to-c maybe?!!

When we first arrived I felt it was different to what I expected but once inside it was much better. The friendly welcome from Margaret was almost family like then Andrew came into the lounge and he was just as friendly. He showed us around our room (called Corkickle) and it was nicely furnished with great finishing touches such as... More
