I was up for a business trip and found the accommodation to be great, Land Lady was fantastic and offered to iron my shirts! I didn't get to sample the breakfast as I was away before the crack of dawn each day. Wifi worked fine and I was on the top floor. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your very kind review. The wi-fi is - and always has been - excellent at Glenfield, and I am glad you were comfortable in the cosy 'attic' double bedroom. I always try to go the 'extra mile' and it was no problem to iron your shirts. I am sorry you missed the opportunity to sample breakfast but... More

Set at slight elevation with a few steps to the front door. Mine was the single room which could easily accommodate a couple. Clean and comfortable. Quiet from outside traffic. Good views to local landmarks to the east. Close to local amenities. Very friendly and helpful proprietor currently undertaking major internal modernising. Real competitive rates. Ask for local restaurants if... More

Work/sightseeing stay, warmly greeted, loved my room, warm cosy and sophisticated with matching wallpaper and bed linen, I think they were Peacocks! Managed to visit the nearby beach, friendly locals and lots to see. Aside from the super windy weather, this was a great break with a little bit of work thrown in. I would stay again, woke up to...

Thank you for your kind review. (I think they're meant to be birds of paradise on the wallpaper and bedlinen) I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. This is a fascinating area, with lots of local history and the gorgeous nearby beach at St. Bees, but unfortunately I can do very little about the weather. The storms keep coming!... More

Room was a budget double, but there's nothing 'budget' about the price. The room was in the attic and was cold, drafty, and cramped. Wind was hurling through the eaves, and blowing a hooly through the little door behind the bed. Currently being decorated, but the smell of paint was nauseating. No wifi usable although property states there is. Limited... More

This guest left without paying and the police have been alerted so I would ask other guests to question this review. The wifi is excellent throughout the house and I have certainly received no complaints about it. The rooms were finished being painted many months ago and again, I have received no other comments.

Very welcoming host, lovely food & spotlessly clean. Extremely comfortable bed & lovely bedding. Very accommodating with breakfast times which was a plus for us. Close to shops and pubs and central location, We would definitely stay again.

Stayed at Glenfield House on business whilst visiting clients in the local area. As a business traveller i have stayed in numerous unfriendly, characterless chain hotels in both the UK and overseas. Glenfield is different! it tries hard, and succeeds in offering a friendly home from home experience. The owner shows genuine interest and I could see is passionate about... More

Thank you for your very kind review. I always aim to offer a highly personal, friendly service to ensure my guests are as comfortable as possible. You are correct in your belief that Glenfield House is under new ownership as I have now owned this guesthouse for just over 12 months. I am delighted that the ongoing refurbishments did not...

I needed a place to stay at short notice and I'm glad i decided on Glenfield House. It's always nice to see a place live up to the image they portray within their advert. Glenfield House surpassed that! Kathy was very pleasant and a pleasure to meet. The breakfast in the morning saw me not eating until mid afternoon, and... More

Perfect place to stay I was on a business trip and my wife came along to enjoy the Lake District, Kathy made us so welcome we stayed one extra night. The Breakfast was first class quality. This was our first time staying at Glenfield house but it won't be our last.

The guest house is undergoing major refurbishment and will be of an extremely high standard once all of the updating is completed. The highlight for us was the courtesy and helpfulness of the owner in relation to changing our booking, then making sure everything was in place. A problem with the ensuite shower, which is due to be upgraded, was... More

Thank you for your comments. It is so nice to receive a review from someone who understands the situation and realises that although more than three-quarters of the rooms in this house have been re-decoratd, the work is far from complete. However, sensible and constructive suggestions are always welcomed and incorporated into future plans. More
