“Fabulous B&B”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Stayed here for two nights in July 2014 on our way to Scotland. The room was excellent being clean and comfortable. The extra touches in the room were over and above that normally expected including fruit, chocolates, bottled water, small fridge with real milk for the tea and coffee. The breakfast was also just as good. The location of the guest house was excellent being just a short walk into Kendal, no need to use the car. Parking was available at the rear of the house. We would thoroughly recommend this guest house when visiting Kendal.

We spent two nights here with friends and were very well looked after. The rooms are really, clean and ours had a lovely big bathroom. Excellent little touches - chocolates & fruit in the room - are very welcome. Good parking facilities. Breakfast was excellent with lots of fresh fruit/yoghurts/cereals and good quality toast. Many thanks to the owner who was very welcoming and helpful.

We had a very comfortable 2 night stay in this lovely guest house. The rooms were spotless and well furnished. There were plenty of towels and toiletries in the bathroom. The room itself had a fridge with fresh milk for tea or coffee also bottled water. Choc biscuits were provided along with fruit and there were also sweets if you're not on a diet!! Breakfast was substantial and beautifully cooked. At night we were able to use the lounge to enjoy a bottle of wine and relax with friends who were also staying. The owner was very friendly and helpful and if we were back in the area we would like to stay here again

Room Tip: We were in room 3 which had a small bathroom but our friends had a larger room with a bigger bathroo...

This was our fourth visit to Glenholme, and once again we were made very welcome. The little extra touches, chocolates, sweets and fruit in the room make it just that more special. This time we learnt a little more about the history of Kendal, and the row of houses in which Glenholme stands. Excellent!

Needed somewhere to stay as we were going to a concert at the Brewery Arts Centre and wanted to be able to walk. From our welcome on arrival to our departure Glynis made us feel so welcome. All the extra little touches made such a difference - fruit, proper milk in the fridge, a variety of teas, biscuits, chocolates, Kendal mint cake, magazines to read and lovely toiletries. And the room was spotlessly clean and bright. Breakfast was another treat, fresh fruit, various cereals, beautifully cooked full English and some classy marmalade. Glynis clearly cares. We will definitely stay here again and will recommend Glenholme

The nicest landlady ever rooms lovely and clean and spacious, nothing to much trouble and on arrival we had fruit and biscuits and a little chocolate box.

I live in Kendal and my family frequently stay at this lovely guest house.

Glynis, the owner, sets such high standards and her breakfasts are legendary. Everything she serves is of the highest quality and beautifully cooked.

Glenholme is a shining star!
