“Glendale Guest House”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

John and Ray Graham
We have stayed in Keswick many times but only in Glendale this past four years. This is undoubtably one of the best B&B's in Keswick which is why we continue to go back. Martin and Gilly are very welcoming and friendly hosts and the rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean.
The Breakfast is excellent with a wide choice of menue and the porridge is irresistible.
The Guest House is only a short walk to the town centre. We have no hesitation in recommending the Glendale to anyone.

Room Tip: rooms at the front of the house overlooking the street are lovely

Have stayed in several BBs in Keswick over last 10 yrs and this is best yet. Comfortable and clean room with king size bed. Good breakfast with options.Friendly and helpful hosts Gilly and Martin. The guest house is close to town centre, lake and amenities. Excellent value!

Room Tip: Go for king size beds.

My cousin and her husband, over for a few weeks from Australia, were very impressed with Glendale House, including the breakfasts. The four of us had a very pleasant 5 night's stay, even though it was very cold for June and Martin and Gilly had to put the heating on one evening. The house was a short walk into the centre of Keswick for a meal etc. which was also a bonus.

My partner and I stayed at Glendale Guest House over the Keswick Beer Festival weekend. We have stayed at many guest houses in Keswick and can honestly say this is the best. Our journey up to the Lakes from Essex took hours longer than we estimated due to traffic and we arrived much later than the eta we had given Gilly but our later arrival was no bother and we checked in extremely quickly and efficiently. We were in Room 1 which is the king size bedroom with a separate private bathroom. Some may be put off by this but don't be it was absolutely fine. The bathroom was big and well equipped with a fantastic shower over the bath. No one has cause to pass room 1 or the bathroom so there is no worry about it not being private.

Gilly and Martin are a lovely couple who run a very welcoming guest house. There is clear attention to detail which is brilliant and that really only comes from people who have the passion and dedication that Gilly and Martin exude.

We are returning to Glendale in September with a couple of friends for a night in Keswick prior to our wedding at Armathwaite Hall a couple of days later. Our friends have never been to the Lakes before so we are really excited to be showing them Keswick for an evening and we know the stay at Glendale will be perfect. After all these years we have finally found 'the' guest house in Keswick.

Note: Gilly's full English breakfast is amazing.

We loved the breakfast here. Everything was so delicious.
We stayed in other B&B's in Lake District and Norht Yorkshire but
this B&B had the best quality breakfast we had during our trip!
The location was very good, close to the Keswick center and the lake.
The room was clean but a bit small.
Yet we recommend this B&B very much .

Our two nights in Glendale were excellent. There was a very warm welcome from Martin & Gilly & the cleanliness, breakfasts & attention to detail were of the highest quality. We did get a mixture of high winds & showers but we were warned through the various weather reports provided & explained by Martin at breakfast. The weather did scupper our intention to scale Helvellyn but a suitable alternative was suggested by Martin along with a detailed map with walk description (so to get lost would have taken some serious concentration!).
Glendale we can fully recommend as a base for anyone visiting this part of the Lakes, and we will be going back.

Room Tip: We actually had a tour of all the rooms and we would have been happy in any of them.

My girlfriend and I were very fortunate to have a whole week in the Lakes this Summer without a drop of rain.Whilst this will always make the holiday far more pleasant than a rainy week, I was very happy with our accommodation. Glendale Guest House is clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were always tasty and very filling. Martin and Gilly were very helpful and friendly and were always on hand to offer advice on where to go and to lend OS maps where we required them.
