A really great place - welcoming, excellent breakfast, quiet very clean room and real value for money. Our second but not our last visit. We have stayed at Glendale before and the standard is as good as ever. We travel a good deal so have some experience of the best and the worst and this is certainly one of the best.

A drive down from Edinburgh to the charming town of Keswick in the late evening of August 27th was pleasant with some scenic countryside roads.... until a little bit of distress (on my part) sets in given that we didn't have any accommodation booked for the night and there were one too many 'No Vacancies' displayed on windows of guesthouses.

But a knock on Glendale's front door with Martin's surprised expression and a warm smile greeted our apologetic faces. He graciously showed us a double room on the first floor and we loved it! The little chandelier lighting gave the room a warm and cosy glow and reflected how well-kept the room was. Needless to say, we had a very comfortable night.

Breakfast the next morning was superb with generous portions.. And a chat with Martin and Gilly about places to visit was incredibly helpful. We took a drive to places that they recommended and were absolutely thrilled with it!

We couldn't have expressed our gratitude more towards Martin and Gilly for being gracious hosts.. A definite A++ for service and we will definitely make another visit should we be there the next time... Knocking much earlier of course!

Hello Rachel.
Thank you for writing a review and we are pleased you enjoyed your day in the Lake District after you left us and that our suggestions were helpful.

I must have looked a little surprised as I remember it really was quite late when you arrived. We are pleased to know that you had a comfortable nights sleep and that breakfast was what you needed.

Perhaps you will return on your next trip to the UK.

Thank you.

Went there for the long weekend (24th to 26th August), and the stay was absolutely wonderful! Stayed in the superior double room, which was spacious, clean and WELL worth the money! Breakfast was delicious, the area was a 10 min walk away from the lake and town.. On top of this, the couple that run the place, Martin and Gilly Lankester, were very friendly.. The only downside was the noisy shower.. But hey, it was only that one thing. Like the title says, my girlfriend and I are definitely staying here again, the next time we visit. :)

A very clean, comfortable and friendly Guest House. Martin and Gilly very helpful in what
to see and do in The Lake District. Breakfast to keep you going all day. Thoroughly
recommend a visit to this pleasant property, within easy walking distant of Keswick and
Derwenteater.

Room Tip: All rooms clean and well appointed

Glendale is a gem! The rooms are spotless and very comfortable. Breakfasts are superb and set you up for the day. Hosts, Martin and Gilly, are extremely welcoming. Location excellent; just a 5 min stroll to the centre of the town. We will definitely book again. Faultless.
