We booked this B&B for two nights based mostly on the positive reviews on 'tripadvisor'. We were very pleasantly welcomed by the bubbly Carole, who greeted us warmly. Green Gables is a very homely place and well decorated throughout. (nice carpets Carole) The two rooms we stayed in were on the top floor, easily acessible with en-suite and bathroom facilities. Both rooms were spotlessly clean. The parking was never an issue with free on street parking and a low cost overnight car park. Carole was always available for advice, from local restaurants to the best places to visit during our stay. We had read about the wonderful breakfast and were not disappointed, it was the best start to the day anyone could wish for. There was plenty of choice and we were asked if we had any particular dietry needs. Gillian was a little gem at breakfast, service was prompt and the food always hot.Sadly all good things come to an end, so thank you for the home from home . Because there are so many choices in the B&B world, the difference mainly rests in the personalities of the people who own and run these guest houses. If that is the case Carole, you will need to buy the property next door. (i know a great carpet company). Green Gables on my phones favourites list.

Room Tip: top floor has an en suite room and rooms with shared bathroom/wc

A smashing B&B in an excellent location - especially if you're using public transport to get around. Carol is a super host with a smile/story/piece of local advice whenever it's required. Room was spotless with everything you would need. Breakfast choice was really good. I stayed an extra night and would've stayed longer if I didn't have to get back to work! Definitely returning to Green Gables Windermere.

We just stayed one night, but the b and b was really welcoming. The rooms were lovely and very clean and we stayed in a 3 bed room which was great value. Breakfast was excellent and they catered well for vegetarians too. Parking is a little difficult if you want to park for free, but we paid in the car park opposite. Only slight negative is that check out was quite early and we could have done with an extra hour or two.

Guest house stays can vary greatly; sometimes you get the warm welcome followed by tepid accommodation - other times the reverse. It was very pleasing, therefore, that our lovely welcome from Carol was followed by one of the best stays we have enjoyed anywhere.
The house is a substantial and inviting period property offering very comfortable accommodation in well kept and spotlessly clean rooms. We were lucky to find a parking spot right outside the property but with the large car park opposite offering overnight parking for one pound this is never going to be an issue.
After a relaxed night we were presented with a hearty and wonderfully cooked breakfast, complete with the vibrant service of both Carol and Gillian.
We only stayed in Windermere for one night as we passed through; that we left wishing we were staying longer was due entirely to the welcome and service we received.
Thank you both; you provide an excellent service. Should we be in the area again you will be our first port of call.

Wonderful friendly welcome, great local knowledge. We had a very nice ensuite room, and the breakfast was delicious. The location is very convenient for the train station, yet is on a quiet and leafy street. Free wifi. All in all a really excellent B&B at a very reasonable choice. Three happy nights spent there and we would definitely go back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At Green Gables we have a very simple philosophy - clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. We do not provide all the latest gizmos and gadgetry. Nor do we provide "boutique" style toiletries or membership to gyms or spas. If you really want these then please ask at the time of booking and we will adjust the price accordingly. We do not have a long list of rules and regulations and you will find us more like a "home from home" than a stuffy and strict place to stay. ... more   less
