we've just returned from our 3 night stay at the glen..it was recommended by a friend and did not dissapoint...we were welcomed by Alan, who showed us to our room (family room)..the room itself was possibly one of the cleanest rooms and bathroom that we've ever stayed in, there was a great view of the Helme from our big bay window, which made a nice change from the hussle of town life..there were two possible wifi connections, which caused no trouble and a large DVD collection should you wish to just chillout in your room, the breakfast..cooked up by Chris was awesome...I had the full english and my girlfriend was happily catered for with veggy sausages, its worth going just for the breakfast, the home-made bread was a big hit with the missus!
theres information packs in the room of local businesses and things to do...chris and alan have also printed off a 'full day' excursion or 'half day' if the need takes, we did the half day..which included a hike up to a waterfall, this is definitely recommended, you only pay for the parking, or just simply take a stomp up the Helme which is right on their doorstep, there's a pub called the Station Inn, literally a minutes walk up the road, which serve great food...we will definitely return, and recommend to anyone thinking of taking a trip to the lake district, home from home, great service and a proper breakfast!..thanks guys

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Glen is a family concern with an excellent reputation for friendly service and large freshly cooked breakfasts using local produce. It is situated on the outskirts of Kendal, in a quiet location in its own grounds under "The Helm" (local walk and view point of Kendal, the Lake District Mountains and Morecambe Bay), but within a 200 metres of country Inn and restaurant. All rooms are en suite, with most having bath and shower. For that special occasion we have, our Luxury suite, with four poster bed and en suite Spa Bath* and shower and a double room with large en suite bathroom with Double Spa Bath* and shower, both these bathrooms come with aromatherapy oils and candles, we have a large family/twin room with view of 'The Helm' plus a large ground floor suite with king size bed. All rooms have freeview TV with DVD. Outside, relax on our patio before taking an evening walk on 'The Helm' to watch the sunset over the Lakeland Mountains, then a drink or meal in our local Inn. * Spa Baths run by meter ... more less
