Stayed at River Cottage which is in the grounds of the Glenburn Hotel and what a superb place to stay. Lovely cottage which was spotless and clean , well equipped with everything you need for a break away and perfect for us with our dog. The balcony overlooking the running stream was so relaxing as was the little BBQ area... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review we really appreciate it. Sometimes it is difficult to find somewhere to stay when your four legged best friend comes along too. Windermere is very dog friendly and it is no longer a problem taking dogs into bars and cafe's. He looks very well for an 18 year old... More

We stayed at The Glenburn from the 12th to 15th August whilst visiting the Lake District. The hotel was very clean and the room was comfortable with good facilities. The food from their restaurant was delicious for both a main evening meal and breakfast. The staff were friendly and attentive and the free Wi-Fi proved useful. The location made this... More

We have just got home from another pleasant stay (19th-21st sep) we stayed in room 8 but have also stayed in room 12 previously. The Glenburn is a great place to stay if you want to explore the surrounding areas and feel at home and most importantly it's great value for money! It has always been Spotless each time we... More

We stayed at The Glenburn for a weekend break last month. Firstly, The Glenburn feels more like a large B&B than a hotel. Our room was cosy, nicely decorated and of a good size (though the bathroom was very small). The room was reasonably clean though we did spot a few cobwebs. The staff are friendly and hard-working. The location... More

Thank you for your review. Can't make my mind up if the guest enjoyed it or not. Seemed a little picky to say the least must have walked around looking for faults and made notes... i have stayed in some big named hotels and never had a cafetiere yet and tripped over laundry trollys and dirty food trays in corridors...

We booked this hotel for a week. On arrival we couldn't get in the hotel, the door was locked.When we did gain entry, we were met with large bags of dirty laundry stacked up against reception desk waiting for collection. We had been travelling for over three hours and were needing a cup of tea and some relaxation. I was... More

Very sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. To be fair it is hardly our fault that the laundryman arrived the same time as the guests. Check in is from 2.30 and a little early i believe. I find it really amazing that the guests had stayed for 5 of their 7 days without a word of complaint... More

Nice hotel 5-10 minutes walk from the small town of Windermere. Bowness on Windermere is about 20-25 minutes walk in the opposite direction of the hotel. Windermere has a few nice pubs and restaurants - we ate at Gioto's which is an Italian restaurant with delicious food. Also had a meal at the Lighthouse bar/ restaurant which was very busy... More

Really nice small hotel in decent location. Very clean room and nice little bar. Special mention of the breakfast - really tasty! Well convenient for Windermere and a lovely stroll to Bowness downhill. Back up hill on the way back though.
