“The perfect base to explore the lakes.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

This fantastic guest house really is the perfect base to explore the lakes. The room was immaculately clean, the decor was very tasteful and the shower was amazing. We received a warm and friendly welcome with Martin and Gilly recommending lovely places to eat and walks to go on. We were even more impressed the next morning at breakfast, Martin's hosting skills are second to none. But the real star was Gilly's gorgeous full English, I didn't have to eat for the rest of the day I was stuffed! I will definitely be staying again, in fact we've already booked our next stay- I highly recommend Glendale!!!

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

Well what can we say! We have been staying at the Glendale nearly every year for over 10yrs and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Lakes. Martin & Gilly are wonderful hosts, the rooms are immaculate and lovely and comfortable, you are definitely guaranteed a good nights sleep! There is plenty to see and do in Keswick and the scenery is just amazing. We can't forget to mention the wonderful breakfast, lots of choice and Gillys cooked breakfast will keep you going all day long. We will be back again :-)

Room Tip: All the rooms are fab, we've been in them all!

Lovely hosts, a warm, spacious room and good quality breakfast. The room was extremely clean, too! The shower was decent and had good pressure and water always hot. Keswick centre a 5 minute stroll away. Would definitely recommend. Had a really nice time.

This guest house is located an easy 5 minutes walk from the centre of Keswick and has on road parking. irectly outside and in nearby streets.

Martin and Gilly, our hosts were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. Equipped with plenty of local knowledge, they're able to assist in helping you plan your day with good advice on what's on, where to go and how to get there.

The accommodation is maintained to a very high level and spotlessly clean. Our room was comfortable and plenty big enough, with drink making facilities and a TV.

Breakfast was served between 8:30 and 9:00 and was of Excellent quality and there was a good selection available. There's even a printed weather report to peruse whilst enjoying it.

We had a fabulous weekend in Keswick (29/11-1/12) and I can certainly recommend The Glendale.

Just returned from a Six night stay at Glendale Keswick. A very warm welcome from Martin and Gilly. As returning guests to Glendale the standards are second to none excellent through out as always. That's why we keep returning a perfect base to explore the Lake District from a perfect Guest House. See you soon

Room Tip: Room Six is good but all rooms are of equal standard.
